Re: CBeebies Land Hotel - 2017

I think it's a shame that us thrill seekers aren't going to get anything until most likely 2018 at AT. From out perspective it seems that Alton Towers is going overboard on the hotels, compared to the number of attractions excluding CBeebies land. As there are few flat rides since many have been clo...

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

I do indeed believe that you move 'backwards' onto the track of witch allows you to go forward. My original diagram which is the exact same as yours without the plans behind it, gives you an insight as to where in the story you are at each point in the ride. If you look a few posts back. Th...

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

Have you managed to get on it yet Andy? Personally I found the screams made it a bit more tense, seeing as other people began screaming and nothing had happened for me. This put me on edge quite a bit! However, they did detract somewhat in places, especially when trying to listen to the VR but havi...

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

I got to ride the experience today and overall I think it is really, really good! It was scary enough for it to be exciting, and the quality of the experience I found to be excellent. What blows my mind is the logistics of the ride, just how does it work?? I honestly thought it was just 1 train mov...

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

very good diagram The physics of this ride asked me the question whilst waiting to go on the ghost train on the warehouse. How come I can't hear machinery surely for something which runs on tracks you'd hear. My sceptic suspicion that the train runs on Cable wire in sync to all three trains hence w...

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

I did the Ghost train the second time round yesterday and to be honest I was less in impressed the first time I did it. THERE VR needs to be changed in focus eveb though you can do it yourself, and when you get grabbed you know it's human hands. And the heat of that train is hot!!! You&...

Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

In contradiction to 'Ghost Train' I have my first time opinions, as I have finally, after months of waiting, departed Thorpe Jct. I came into the pre-show, with my heart pumping, excited for the ride. The pre-show was very good, with effects etc. and an overall creepy feel. Which definitely set the ...

You'll suffer with me if its not open on Sunday since I'm going then. It is open because of Thorpe's tweets and pictures, as well as Derren Brown's.

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

Thorpe park have replied to a recent tweet asking if the Ghost Train would be open around the 15th/16thn July. Thorpe Park replied saying that they hope to continue technical rehearsals, and that it is subject to availability. This just supports that they're continuing for a while, as people said. L...

Don't read if you have not ridden the ride... I didn't see any type of track or runners. How does the actual train move? Also the ride broke yesterday aswell, about 2:30 ish Oh so it did open yesterday? Despite them saying, "We have no more planned Technical Rehearsals" Sent from ...

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

Ah I see sorry to sound like a newbie lol. So they are still tweaking parts that are not working and need improving as such? Thats pretty cool, How long would you hazard a guess to when it be fully open? I would guess a few weeks. Summer holidays I say. As technical rehearsals are supposed to go on...

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

Exciting review Adz! Really hoping that it's open this Saturday so I can ride it for myself. What is the fastest route from entrance to DBGT? Just in case I need to get there quickly. Over the bridge crossing amity beach, past KFC etc. I think so anyway. However I believe that it's been opening aro...

How do you know what time they aim to have it open each day? I'm worried I'll miss it if it does open.

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Having ridden all rows, I would advise not to go in rows: 1,2,6,7 Because they are badly out of sync, and it ruins the ride, My first ride was lucky enough to to be in row 4, the prime row, and I was amazed, it was immersive and though blurry, it was still great. I think if coasters are built first ...
