Re: THORPE PARK 2010

We have to pay for petrol and general maintenance, public-transport users don't. Don't forget insurance and ever-increasing car tax, these and petrol makes it so expensive to drive atm. I think paying for parking is a terrible idea on Thorpe's behalf. I live quite near and i'm an AP holder but thos...

Re: Serious public health concerns regarding Th13teen.

Don't know if this has been mentioned but that panic attack and ambulance on opening day was for a lady who fell ill whilst QUEUING for TH13TEEN. (unlike the lady who fitted after getting off SAW: THE RIDE on opening day a few weeks back).

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

In fairness, I make it sound really terrible, but it was alright. Definitel...
