Re: Usefull themepark related German phrases

Ooof, good question! Actually have to think about that one. There aren't really any phrases you need to know in a German theme park, especially since most of the signs are in English (well, the majority of the signs are). All staff should be able to speak English as well. I could give you translatio...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Did anyone managed to get some Summer Nights tickets? Wasn't lucky enough, but would love to go if anyone has some spares. :(

EDIT:
Nevermind, just got a confirmation for a ticket!

Heidepark in Germany is going to have a special Pokemon GO day on 29 July, offering discounted tickets for that day. :)

Re: Movie Park Germany

Of course the moment I decided to give up my annual pass over there, they've decided to put up a new roller coaster...:P
Actually glad they're bumping up the ride count once again, except for Van Hellsing's Factory all other rollercoasters were almost a pain to ride with :X

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Hmm, seems to not have times for buses after 24th September. Odd, might have to wait until sometime next year (Thanks for that link, used that journey before but all the sites I found back then were really dated and broken). Don't worry, they will update the times in time for Halloween/Fireworks. :)

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Thinking of going on 1st October. Literally the first day that I'll be able to make it up there. Are non-Scarefest weekends in October busy and do they still do the bus from Stoke? Not sure about how busy it will be, but I imagine the weekends in October will get busier the closer they are to Hallo...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I don't think I can justify writing a report and my honest opinion about DBGT yet, as I only been on it once. If the experience/storyline would have been the same, that would have been a lot easier. However, I would like to experience at least two more different scenarios until I can give an insight...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

The worst/best part about this is that, even though I've been on it once, I can't tell what will happen the next time I depart the Ghostrain again! It's both amazing and very nerve rattling for me! :D

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Sooo...I accidentally Ghosttrain. Had a meeting down in London which got cancelled last minute, so I snuck in a quick trip to TP. Without spoiling anything, I can honestly say the wait was worth the wait. The buildup, VR tech and actors where quite convincing! I do have a fear of empty tube trains n...

Re: Efteling

Winter Efteling starts on 14 November, until 31 January. Opening times are shorter (only until 18:00). Anything water-related is usually close, so that's Pirana and Flying Dutchman. However I've seen them opening the Flying Dutchman early in January, if the temperatures aren't too bad. Anything else...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

While it's ridiculous how long they're taking with the opening and stopped communicating any kind of specific opening date, I am pleased they've learned from their mistakes and don't open up an attraction with half of the effects not working. I remember experiencing "I'm a celebrity" on it...

Will be there, but have to wait to book tickets until July. Probably going to take the Friday off work already!
EDIT: Duh, forgot once again that I already made plans that weekend with friends, so not going after all. Will still be there on the Friday though!

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Spoke to a staff member last Sunday, they don't have a fixed date for opening. However she did tell me that Derren Brown will be there for the opening for sure. So DBGT opening only can happen whenever he's free on his current tour, and seeing that the next start date for his tour is 4 July...;)

Do they still sell the th13teen themed teddy bears? (The black and green ones). If so, how much do they sell for?


Saw them the other week in the shop, so yes. But don't know the price of them really, sorry!

Been to the restaurant once again last Thursday with a group of 8, and they messed up big times. We wasted two hours in the restaurant waiting to get our ordered food. Some food came straight away, but for the most part we had to ask the waiters four times where our stuff is. Only after calling out ...

I got my MAP at Alton Towers, Can I just go down and reniew it at Blackpool Tower Dungeon then and there, or do I have to tell them first?


It worked just fine for me last year, but that was back in Germany. If you renew it online it should ask you for a pick up location though.
