Re: Big Six Challenge

Maybe because it wasn't supposed to be happening until the 4th? I imagine everything in the park is already set up today and people were trying to compete while the Challenge hasn't even started. Just my guess though.

Thanks @Ladyofthelake, I just asked Alton Towers myself as well and they gave me the same answer. :)

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

What's with the yellow goo on the Towers? :O
Other than that, does the map suggest that you can't go to Katanga Canyon past SeaLife?

I won't believe that opening date until it actually happens, haha.
Let's see how it'll turn out. :)

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I'm not sure how I feel about the Ghosttrain actually being advertised as "new" in 2017. Sure, it has been upgraded, but then again TP did say the multiple storylines would be a thing from the very start...

Is anyone going to the MAP Preview day later this month, by any chance? Managed to get myself a ticket for it. :)

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Gotta be honest, doesn't exactly fill me with hope when they can't even stick to an opening date announcement date... They haven't even said anything or apologised, just denying they ever said it..? I dunno, much prefer to not have a fixed opening day and all teething problems gone, rather than a d...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Am curious how the changes will work out in the end! Thought I could experience it at the Annual Pass Day, but park already confirmed it won't be open for that day. Oh well!

But what if someone runs into the fence? Seems dangerous. 8-[ You bet I'll have the Schadenfreude of my life time! In all seriousness though, I don't see too much of a problem with that fence. Too bad about taking good photos, but I assume a lot of people saw themselves flying off there in the dark...

Re: Kolmården Wildlife Park

According to Parkerlebnis.de and a Swedish website, most of the committee involved are in favour of keeping Wildfire up and running. Friend of mine gave me a quick translation, it seems like it's up to Kolmarden if they want to reopen the ride for this season. Finger's crossed! Sources: http://www.p...

I am a bit confused what is happening with the attraction name now. Also the video doesn't really say anything new


I don't think anything will change in the name, I assume it's just for the promotion of the new destination.
Unless you like to call it DBGT:ROTD now. ;)

It is now. I remember AT saying that VR is mandatory a couple of weeks before Galactica launch, probably to justify the "world's first fully dedicated VR rollercoaster". :)

Re: Galactica - A worth while investment?

The first few rides I had were amazing, and I love the theme and concept quite a lot. However, I wished they would have put more effort into the scenery during the ride and made the VR optional, like they originally said it would be. Am also hoping that they'll add more destinations to the ride as w...

That's weird. My 3 year old one is able to run it. Not on high specs, but enough that it's not frustrating to play really. :)

Re: Fireworks

Survived two days in the park, and I had an amazing time. Made the mistake of leaving too soon on Saturday, resulting in being stuck at the car park for an hour. Traffic flow was badly handled, or rather just too much. Not really the park's fault in my opinion. I had some issues with not being able ...

Re: Fireworks

In my original post I said, and I still believe this, the park should have made both days only for those prebooking tickets for standard guests and annual passholders meaning they could easily limit the number of people who turned up in comparison to how they actually dealt with it. :) Funny enough...
