Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

No doubt the sugar tax has been incorporated into the main cost of the cup, therefore sugar free drinkers are paying a premium. I could be wrong!

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

I'd have to agree!

I'm a big fan of Wicker Man, but I'd ride it whatever! Flames or no flames! :)

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

It was coming out of one last Sunday, but I'm unsure if this has been resolved. To be honest, there is no guarantee that the flames will be working on any day, therefore I'd stick to your planned trip (just check the park is open).

One of my niggles about the boat ride is...

Spoiler: show
The animatronic that wiggles above your head. Why is it in a boiler suit? It would have been nice to have seen it in period costume.

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

The map isn't bad to be honest. It is a style that has been used for a few years now, but it is a design that links instantly to Towers. Any redesign would have to be carefully thought out, otherwise we will get something diabolical like Thorpe's new map! I did notice Burger Kitchen in CCL is now th...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Not going to go into to much detail on here for now, but WOW! I absolutely love Alton Towers Dungeons! Credit to the Entertainment team for putting on a great show! After going through it yesterday and today, it is great to see something new in the building once used for Charlie. The sets were great...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The Towers were open today, but it is even more restricted than before as we were unable to get right to the top. Still, it was very nice to get back in them!

Re: Tomb Blaster

To be honest, if it is another Donaldson IP then I am all for it. It reaffirms Chessington as a family park. Zog would suit this ride well!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

Being a vegetarian, it has always been challenging to eat at parks, especially when you don't really eat greasy foods either. I'm really pleased to see RCR increase their vegetarian offer along with other outlets. Hopefully, more healthy eating choices are to come!

Re: Tomb Blaster

That is very disappointing to hear. I have found memories of this ride prior to its recent incarnation, so to hear that it is in poor condition is disappointing. Hopefully Chessington have identified this as an issue and are working on a rebrand!
