Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

The developers Diary just did a pretty massive update , here's a selection of the best: http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/313270_138112962958780_115673268536083_112865_1327309790_n.jpg http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/304102_138114486291961_115673268536083_112882_213155176...

Re: Rides you've never been on

Just like mostly everyone who has posed so far, it's mainly the childrens ride for me. I've never stepped a foot in CCL nor The Farmyard (though I did do Ug Swinger back before it was moved, so I guess that counts). As for thrill rides I am yet to submit myself to the well known pain of submission a...

Re: Which AT year was the best in your opinion?

Probably 2010. My first visit was in 2008 so through what I've seen of the park so far it has certainly been the best for me. After the previous year of following Thirteen's construction it was great to have almost felt part of it and seen it right up to it's opening, which I was there for. I had a ...

Re: What type of enthusiast are you?

I would say I'm mostly 4 with parts of 3 and a little bit of 1. At the end of it, I am obsessed. Sure I love parks and rides, though I would defiantly not call myself an adrenaline junkie. However, my obsession has mainly come from the internet and building up excitement for my trips as I have a few...

Re: Quick Questions 2011

Does anyone know if they show sky sports anywhere on the resort? I doubt it but my brother being a huge football fan wants to watch some game on Sunday and asked me to put it on here. Seems he is happy to watch it instead of going round the park. Strange boy.

Re: Progressive musical discussion topic

Hurts like heaven is an ok track, a bit too poppy for my liking but if you accept it for what it is then its a pretty nice fun song. Shame about the effects on Chris's voice though :( Turns out the whole album was leaked on Monday, so quite anxious to see how this record turned out I convinced mysel...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

I think it's safe to say that this ride will have nothing to do with radiation. Why? Because Raptor had almost exactly the same sort of promotion: http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu326/Jonnyfoulger/screen-capture-4.png The ride had nothing to do with Radiation, so therefore this ride probably won...

Re: Towers Magic (The Ultimate Recreation)

Looks good so far, will be watching this to see how it turns out. Alton really is one hard park to try and recreate on RCT3 so all the best of luck to you!

The day I stopped being a Coldplay fan. Just heard Princess of China. Oh dear. Oh dear. :no:


Sounded more like Rhianna slightly featuring Coldplay. A real low point for them.

How about Sunday the 23rd of October? I'm assuming it will be pretty busy but any ideas for queue times?

Re: Progressive musical discussion topic

Not me! To be honest it looks massively overpriced for what is something which really isn't a massive deal. Sure I would like the 5.1 surround mix, as that would sound amazing, and some of the other content on the other discs seems interesting, but the rest of it just seems...pointless. The memorabi...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

A new time-lapse camera has been set up by Thorpe. Unfortunately it looks like that it won't be online, but the Developer's Diary on Facebook will be using it for updates. Heres "today's" update. (even though the pictures from 2 days ago) http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/3089...
