Re: Thorpe Park: Future Discussion

Looking more at it, i'm getting convinced coaster two is a mega-lite, it looks like a great twisting layout, with all the features of a mega-lite. Coaster one looks more like a B&M flyer, as the main features are large turns, mainly over water, and there are long straight sections for rolls, loo...

Re: Thorpe Park: Future Discussion

When was this MTDP released? I thought i was pretty up to date with the plans ( i know its not actually a plan) of theme parks, but maybe this slipped my attention.

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion Part 2

I have a feeling it is the forest that is dragging you down, the wraiths are actually warning you of this and the entity in the crypt will be found out on opening day

Re: Chessington 2010: Wild Asia!

It sounds quite clever actually, if they Market it right, they are going for the whole experience, making every element right and "different"

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Viral Marketing/Promotional Discussion

its nice to see an good array of videos, and that alton towers have seen that not only the people who have done extreme things deserve to ride, other people, like charity workers have been given this opportunity as well.

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Skyride Station Fire

I really like the signs above, looking very professional, then again its not a surprise from the towers, i hope they are used in the other stations The build has been really quick, and i really wouldn't be surprised if it was opened for the 20th, considering it only burnt down late last season openi...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion Part 2

X could be a great ride if one year Thorpe put a fair amount of money in, it's such a shame they don't play with those tactics. With octopus gardens, the arena, and ranger county a very large old area is left. To say there aren't any plans of it's removal is probably wrong, but I doubt these would b...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Hi, I'm dan . Allthough I've been interested in theme parks for ages and have browsed through these forums many a time I've only just made an account. In my classes at school ( I'm only 14) whenever a rollercoaster or theme park is implied everyone stares at me, people also laugh when I can name inv...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion

Yeah, I can't see them making fake scaffolding, surely it's cheaper to use the real stuff?
In one of the wallpapers it looked like vines were wrapping around the riders, could there be vine like things which could wrap around the riders legs inside?
