Re: Scarefest 2011

The price of the maze tickets are £12. Last year i paid £10 when i booked the tickets online and then a week later they increased the price by £2 up to £12! I hope they aren't planning on doing this again! £14 for maze tickets with them closing at 9:15 wouldn't be worth it as i image the Q's are goi...

What's people opinions on the Thorpe Park Fright Nights? I have never been myself, only attended the Alton Scarefest in the past but judging from the past line ups they seem to be investing a lot more money into Thorpe's Fright Nights with double the mazes, scare zones, etc! Is there plan to have Th...

Re: Excalibur, Drayton Manor Park

Yea, i agree with what most people have said here, its been a while since i last saw it and even then a lot of the features werent working correctly/poorly maintained. I guess part of me was hoping that it was closed because they had finally decided to use that area for a new attration or something!...

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

I hope this isn't the case but i'm starting to think that there is still a chance both mazes are going to be under the same roof! There are too many things are pointing towards both mazes under the one structure! I hope i am proved wrong though! I think it would be a mistake too try and put both maz...

The question now is where will the boiler house be?

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Couple of questions:

1) During the Scarefest can you purchase fastpass tickets and use them in the evening?
2) What time do the mazes at scarefest stay open till?

Thanks

Most schools will break up on the 26th March and go back on the 12th April give or take a couple of days as some schools may have training days! :) hope this helps.

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

That sounds very good for a new ride, i remember when i came to go on Rita and the que was over 2 hours! So just over an hour for Th13teen sounds great :D and a 20min que in the afternoon is even better! I cant wait till i go now :D
