Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

Really is nice to see all the final touches being added, like the element with the lake within the track. Just hope they keep them fully maintained and working all the time. Don't think I have been so excited about a new ride since errr  :lol: Is that second Island for the future coaster bigger...

Re: Scarefest 2012

Yep really will avoid those first 2 early dates this year. What I would like to see it something different for a change. Not the same old stuff dragged out again and again. Let see some new pieces of theming around the park. I actually quite liked the year they had the skeletons on towers street com...

Anyone know if Tidal Wave will still be sponsored by Dr Pepper this year ?

Re: 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra... Part 2

What are the chances of Nemesis getting a lick of pain, and the whole of Forbidden Valley getting a tidy up? I really hope they do paint the monster. They did paint sections of it a few years back but parts now are in desperate need of a lick of paint. Regarding the comment about it getting better ...

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

Its seems a shame for Chessie what with the Olympics next year, you would really have thought they would have pulled out all the stops. Ok it definately needs a new ride but even those animal enclosures are looking very dated compared to some other zoos around the country. That monkey thing would ha...

Re: Index Page Changes

I understand that changes may have had to be made but it makes it really awkward to browse the forum. There just seems to be so many clicks back and forth now when before it was simple.

Have to admit I am not very good with changes :(

Re: Park Music and Videos

Yes 8pm but it was a really enjoyable event. Good quality lighting used throughout the park.

Really hope Alton make the 2012 Scarefest lighting a priority.

Yes awesome display tonight. No smoke in the way. I really thought the display had a good choice of music to please most people. And the fireworks well I thought they were better than last year. Well done Alton great show, the pre show bit was quite good too with the fire dancers around the arena. A...

Re: Ultimate Fireworks 2011

Those strips of lights on the Towers look cool. I saw these the other day and just thought they were power cables not lights. From the pictures on altons facebook it does look good. http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/386217_10150450168886201_21765316200_10773230_1125009657_n.jpg

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Yes saw them too, they were very good.

We were walking along the hollow and suddenly saw a hand appear through the ivy arch sides. (bit like the carey horror film end)

Really made me jump.

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

So wait, Nemesis finally turned red yesterday?! I mean thank goodness they do listen to us, but it took them 1 1/2 weeks of a just over 2 week event to get this quick fix... really not good enough. I think the message from this scarefest is that in 2012 they should PREPARE... in fact they'd better ...

Great set of photos Islander. Really thought Chessington was looking good last night. I was there too :) That strong wind made it seem even creepier in a way. As mentioned the lights at Chessington seem much more better quality, like stage lights more than garden centre lights. Whilst I still enjoye...

Just back from a visit to Chessington Hocus Pocus. The Lighting around the park is impressive as usual. You can tell they are using quality lights. Vampire may not be quite so well lite this year but Wild Asia makes up for it. Really was a great atmosphere throughout the park and enjoyed my visit. Y...

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Just back after a quick visit before my main visit late next week. First opinions not a bad event but definately lacking something this year. Mazes good fun but do prefer them by the hotels all atmosphere around the hotels is lost once the park closes. Trick or treat live on stage about time too :) ...
