Re: Dreamland Heritage Park Margate megathread

Having just caught up with this, it was brilliant to see Dreamland open to the public once again. The programme was mainly coverage from this event, but also showed footage of Dreamland back in its heyday - it was really interesting to see the variety of rides back then in comparison to when I visit...

Re: Dreamland Heritage Park Margate megathread

Dreamland is going to feature on The One Show this evening:

Should certainly be interesting to see how things are coming along with the project :)

I don't have a link to this one, but I can only assume that Thorpe posted it on their Facebook at some point :P

Re: Thorpe Park: 2014 and beyond

Thorpe Park have announced an Angry Birds retheme. The main attraction will be an Angry Birds 4D Experience, therefore situated in the previous Time Voyagers attraction. As well as this, we will see a Detonator retheme, a new Dodgems attraction and themed retail outlets. The opening date? May 2014.....

Re: What ride would you like Thorpe Park to remove next?

I really dislike Storm Surge. I don't understand why they felt it was necessary to install another water ride, when you already have Tidal Wave, Rumba Rapids, Loggers Leap and Depth Charge. It's ugly, it drips on you, it makes an awful noise, the theming doesn't make sense, and it needs to be knocke...

Re: Opening Dates 2014

Having a further look on the website, March 16th was the opening date for last year, which makes me think that they haven't updated the dates for this year yet, which is misleading when this is above it: http://i.imgur.com/DLQGHS8.png #-o Therefore, I can assume that so far they have only updated th...

Opening Dates 2014

Alton Towers have updated the opening dates on their website, which can be seen here. As already known, the park will be open from 10-4 during February half term. However, there appears to be what I assume is a mistake, as the page shows the park opening on March 16th, when it is being advertised as...

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

I believe a similar restriction applies to Thomas Land, so it's not completely out of the question. However, with Old McDonald's Farmyard being accessible to all, I would assume that the same criteria would apply to CBeebies Land. But like you said, it's aimed at a young age group, so a staffed entr...

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

Alton Towers have created a mini-site for CBeebies Land where more information can be found: http://www.altontowers.com/cbeebiesland/ Interestingly, it says that the entrance to the area will be permanently staffed, which makes me wonder if there'll be restrictions on who can enter, i.e. if you have...
