Re: Why does Oblivion stop if someone gets their phone out?

It's general physics that any item dropped from a height will fall at high speeds and hurt. Simples. It's a mixture of H&S and filming the ride. Some just have it out, others film the ride even if they have a tight grip on them. In a past experience, one brave staff member scaled up Blivvy just ...

Re: Kim Jong-un blasts North Korean theme park as "pathetic"

I'm sure Sam will win the funniest topic more than once this year.

Who would of thought that I'd be saying this, but I agree with Kim Jong Un.

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

That stress announcement is oddly placed, either make the "stunt" in the Summer where many can go or with The Swarm's heated pre-opening day publicity. It would of been a nice follow up to the "horrific terror" of armless dummies. Anyone know why they chose now? It sends a bit of...

Re: Former Irn Bru Revolutiion Getting A Facelift for 2012!

Even the font for the new ride reminds me of something in a food product. It looks friendly, but the ride looks all dull and gloomy! Make your mind up BPBPBPBPB. Anyone got some images of the train.

Re: Idea: Alton's own 'Aquanura'

Not a bad idea actually, seems like a top investment that could be used in the MTYDP.

People only get ideas like this from having a day off! :P

Does seem a bit grand, American and tacky for Alton and the locals would reject it, thus making a hefty development process.

Re: Nemesis info/story boards in FV

They've been there since FFAC opened. There epic and I think they should do the same with Fried Chicken Co for Blivvy and SW7.

Re: Why is the whole of X-Sector closed?

It's upsetting that a attempted suicide would happen in a family theme park in such grim circumstances, but I cannot understand how nobody noticed. I'm sure we will have cameras on the Fried Chicken Co./Rehydrator building now. Was the ride closed for the rest of the day then? And does anyone know i...

Re: Merlin's next park?

DRAYTON MANOR! They need some BIG MERLIN MAGIC! Drayton are basically trying to rival AT with their new hotel and planned waterpark. And many future top scale attractions planned just next door to Alton. Would Merlin really want more theme parks closer together? MERLIN MAGIC! Looks like you haven't...

Re: Merlin's next park?

If Merlin invest in BPB, that is a extra park to maintain, and BPB needs big additions each year and keeping to this would have to mean cost cutting around their others parks. Chessie has always been treated badly by it's owners and I can only fear the worst if big additions are expected for Thorpe,...

I'll celebrate with some milk... because all the cool kids do that. I made a Victoria sponge today for the sake of TTF, so I guess I could toast with that.

Re: Katanga Canyon show

I doubt there is enough room in Katanga for a large scale show with minimal cost. Merlin/Alton wouldn't want to spend big money on glitzy shows. The stage looks too big for the potential space in Katanga, maybe relandscape the Rapids' queueline. But I do believe that the main focus of entertainment ...

Re: The Darkness (New Water Slide) IDEA!

Something to "soak" (if you'll pardon the pun) the Master Blaster's queues would only be a bigger slide to be honest, if the rumoured Waterpark extension goes ahead, it could be the potential area for development, near Flash Floods is a good place to work out a entrance for a slide. I agre...

Does yours have a hotel?

We must have a topic for this. Should I make it?

I could actually imagine a Angry Birds hotel, shaped like the structures in the game.

Re: Scarefest 2012

I don't think they'd bring back anything with actors at the HH due to the abuse they were getting in Scarefest 08. Hitting actors with fists to inflateable hammers. I remember seeing people running through it and freaking out constantly and lots of screaming, so it worked. But bad PR and actors inju...
