Re: Fright Nights

The rumour started because the maze hasn't started (visible) construction. It should be noted that the 2015 version didn't start until much later on in the year, and things like Welcoming have just started. I fully believe it's coming back!

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

Will I be staying? No thanks. Firstly, the rooms look far too small. Imagine how hot and stuffy they're going to get, and how much worse they'll be if we have another summer like the one just gone. Then there's the bathroom issue- having en suite rooms is very standard nowadays and a great convienie...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

The only thing we know is the location. I find it interesting that we still know nothing, considering it was teased well over a month ago (especially when Welcoming was revealed a week after it's teaser).

It may be summer but the Halloween version is almost complete! We plan to launch this spooky edition in early October.

Huh, thats a shame. It didn't require an extra staff member to run which I find really confusing.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

Close- it's £9, so considering that the Towers one is rumoured to have rides and I could imagine it being a bit longer, I want to think it'd be a bit more expensive.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Best year for me was 2015. I believe this was because it was the first time I did it, I was the one leading our group and the finale was even louder than other years. 2017s version was the most consistent maze the park offered :)

Hey guys, we've hit a bit of a technical hitch so we thought we'd update you on it and how that's gonna affect the project. A couple days back, George suggested we updated the server to the latest snapshot so we could make use of the new aquatic features, so we wouldn't have to redo the kids area ri...

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra) - New for Scarefest 2018

A big issue with using the drop towers would be how expensive it would be to hire all the actors and the extra staff needed to run the ride. It'd also be a bit weird for them to service/rebuild the ride just for Scarefest.

Coasterforce have shared this video on their Youtube channel, and this ride looks like one of the better wing coasters.

Too soon to plan another visit? :lol
