Re: At what age can you not handle thrill rides anymore?

I'm 24 and I've noticed more recently I can't do the spinning rides. I think you could sit me on rides like Nemesis all day and I would be fine but last year my niece found out she had a rather big liking for Air Race and DM. I think I went on it 5 times with her and have never felt so bad. I tend t...

Re: How do you feel about re-riding rides?

I try and ride all my favourite rides first and then go back and re ride after that. I have to be careful as some rides sometimes leave me feeling a bit sick afterwards so will not go on those twice in a row (air race for example at DM). I try to mix it up so for example 2x big rides, 1x smaller rid...

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

I wouldn't like to see Duel loose it's haunted house feel. I went to Thorpe Park with my nephew recently and realised they didn't have a Haunted House and felt a little gutted as I do quite enjoy them. I don't know about everyone else but to me I feel a Haunted House is like a basic need for a Theme...

Re: The Future Of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; The Rid

Seeing that Charlie is 10 years old makes me feel old! I remember going to Alton while they were building it and excited to see what is on the inside! I feel I agree that it would be good to see Charlie go. I went on the John Lewis day back in Feb and we decided to go on it as we were all very cold ...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

I've got stuck on Two rides at Alton Towers The first I couldn't really say that I was actually stuck. It was in the queue room of Hex and something went wrong in the other room. I was there for nearly an hour before we were allowed to continue. Everyone had a great sense of humour and strangely was...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I can remember going on this ride when I first visited Thorpe Park six years ago and really hating the ride. I went on Friday and my nephew dragged me on it with him. I didn't realise at the time that it had changed and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with the changes. I'm not sure why bu...

Re: Worst. Ride. Ever.

I went on a ride called Freak Out while at a Fun Fair on holiday which is very similar to Vortex at Thorpe Park. Before I went on the ride my restraint didn't shut properly so they guy came along and pushed it shut. Half way through the ride it felt like the restraint opened slightly and I spent the...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Hi Everyone. I'm Kleo and I've been a fan of Theme Parks since first going to Camelot when I was a young child. I've enjoyed reading topics on this forum for a while but finally decided to join so I can also post. My favourite park is probably Alton Towers as I have many fond memories there. I try t...
