Re: THORPE PARK 2010

Going back to the "rap" music on the rides, I remember when Alton were being sponsored by New Moon (in the Twilight series) and it was playing all the music from the film on the rides, I felt this destroyed the atmosphere and themeing of the rides. Also, should I avoid SAW: Alive, consider...

Re: Confession Topic

1. I have never been on Submission, nor do I really want to...
2. Air is dull.
3. I haven't been on Duel, however I did go on the Haunted House.
4. I am also petrified of the duck on The Flume. :shock:

I guess a bit of work could easily solve that problem, the BH tent would be great, it would also bring people to X Sector and would help the whole area. :)

Re: Least amount of rides been on in 1 day?

I have always been lucky with Alton Towers, I have always been on the big four (Nemesis, Oblivion, Air and Rita) and I also went on Th13rteen last time I went, however, at Thorpe Park it is a different story with me, (sorry to go off topic) last year I went on a summer weekend and we managed Stealth...

Re: KFC/Burger King!

In all honesty, Alton Towers should do a Disney and just have their own themed restaurants! :shock:

Re: Stealth!

Stealth is a fantastic ride, especially at the front. It gives you a huge rush and I just love it, that is all I can really say to be honest! :lol:

Re: KFC/Burger King!

Sorry I don't know when the contract ends, but I agree, when McDonalds was in Cloud Cuckoo Land it was a fun and wacky place and it was a well themed "restaraunt", now that Burger King has taken over though, it is bland and doesn't fit in, I would also like to see a KFC back in Kantanga C...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

It will be madness :lol: , if anything they should have it outside though, I feel that Th13rteens inside queue is fine as it is, the outside (as with most rides) is the boring bit that needs something to give the queuers a "kick". :D

Re: Thorpe Park 2009: Saw - The Ride

Last year I went on Saw, I didn't rate it highly at all, however I went today and my opinions on the ride have completely changed, I loved the drop, the indoor section and the bunny hop. It is a very good ride and I regret rating it so badly last year. :oops:

2. The intensity of the drops on TOT is nowhere near as intense as Th13teens.


I'm sorry, this might just be me, but Tower Of Terror's drops are way worse then Th13rteens! :?

Re: Dark Forest & RITA - General Discussion

I'm sure there is much more 'tyre' smoke when it launches now than there used to be. I thought that too :D . For me it just doesn't seem to work, they either had to keep it how it was or completely change it, but this whole race car "escape" theme is wierd and seems to be stuck in the mid...
