Re: Next Concert?

The Pink concert was one of the best they have done. Sadly tho as mentioned the parking was a major issue and people don't tend to forget that. Think that was the longest I have ever waited to get out of a concert ever. The memories of all the cars beeping their car horns around the alton hotel area...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

Some nice ideas there CoasterCrazyChris. Thats my only niggle you cannot get up to see the bank turn around the lake and does not help with that stage placed right in the view. Hopefully eventually the stage will be removed. For Fright Nights this area could be awesome. I really hope they light it u...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

[quote author=Nightfall link=topic=28420.msg655268#msg655268 [/quote] The lift hill wasn't the issue. The trouble was inside the station. Whenever the train was sent out it kept only moving a few feet before stopping (not an abrupt stop like an E-stop but more like they'd just turned the power off)....

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

I was there again today. Have to say I totally love the ride. Yes I was in the queue in that breakdown at the end of the day. It seems to make a huge thud twice as it went up the lift hill but they sorted it. Was nice to be one of the last out of the park too on a lovely evening. Felt the back was d...

No worries  :lol: misunderstanding I will leave mine after experiencing it soon :) Some of those comments are really bad tho. I was really hoping 2012 was a turning point for the towers but after reading some of these comments well  :shock:

Its a shame to see all the negative reviews on the facebook page and twitter. It  just seems Alton can't pull it off lately.

Re: 2012: Ice Age – The 4-D Experience

The only downside to me is that Cloud Cuckoo Land has now lost a lot of colour with the blue and white repaint  :D Thats exactly my views. On a summers day the area used to look lovely and was so colourful. I'm not normally that critical too but I feel this is a bit of a waste of cash. There a...

Re: 2012: Ice Age – The 4-D Experience

I really don't like the ice age themeing on the theatre and with that ice added it looks even worse from those photos and kind of tacky. The theatre looked great following the original retheme to Cloud Cuckoo with the flowers and grass etc. There was really nothing wrong with it. I would rather see ...

Re: POV Pests

Yes I just don't see the point with shaky coaster povs and sneeking cameras on. I would never risk using my equipment on a coaster. It was good that Thorpe released a great pov of The Swarm probably with the aim prob to try and cut back on povs being made, but they still do it. And yes there is one ...

Totally agree bring it back ! The Ice shows were always kind of magical in a way. Would love to see it return. How about if spinball which was rumoured to be relocated was removed. You could use that whole area plus the hospitality tent as an entertainment avenue. Like Big Dave said a brick struture...
