Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

As well as that, the entire pit has been given a jet wash and the indoor areas of the queue and exit have been freshened up.

Re: The Swarm

This is more of a preview, as I’m visiting for the first time since breaking the 1.4m barrier. The Swarm is my most anticipated ride for my trip, mainly because it’s unlike anything in the UK. The dive drop looks like it’ll provide some great hangtime, much better than the only other hangtime I’ve e...

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

This looks insane, and just in time for my potential Florida trip in 2021. However, I have seen people already assuming that this will be better than Steel Vengeance. Can we ride it first, then judge afterwards? Stats don’t mean anything.

Re: Flamingo Land

I would also love this to happen. Not only because i only live an hour away or so and their last roller coaster was a Volare, but it could also mean Colossus could be forced to close, which could bring something even better to that area.

Re: Flamingo Land Coast

This is great! As someone with relatives living in Scarborough for nearly 20 years, I have fond memories of the Futurist and was sad to see it go. What was even more sad, however, was the fact that nothing was happening to the land. But now... I’m a big fan of Flamingo Land, so this could be exactly...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Sorry, me again. I’m having trouble looking at the prices for a day ticket, as when I click on the link, it just takes me back to the generic tickets page. Could anyone tell me the prices or 2 adult day tickets and 2 child day tickets?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know if THORPE will be doing the Armed Forces Day this year? Just wondering because I have family members in the RAF.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

This is still my favourite coaster I’ve ever ridden. It’s sheer intensity is unmatched by any coaster in the UK, and the way it stays low to the ground proves for many footchoppers, which I don’t think modern inverts utilise.

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

For me, Oblivion was really dissapointing this year. I only got on it once in late September, and it was my first front row ride out of 3. I barely felt the drop and it only held you at the top for less than a second.

I’m just doing edits of rollercoasters. Hope to start doing ride soundtrack remixes on GarageBand.

Well, I failed miserably. Only rode Nemesis and Smiler once and didn’t go to Fantasy Island or Thorpe at all. However, Thorpe next year! Can’t wait.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Do THORPE PARK do digipass at individual ride photo areas or is it just at specific booths?

Re: Rita - General Discussion

If SW9 doesn’t turn out to be a replacement for Rita, I think it would benefit from getting those newer OTSRs seen on Intamin rides like I305 and Maverick.

They could do work on it after the Christmas event, in January and February.

Don’t know how anyone didn’t notice, but Rumba Rapids has been removed from the THORPE PARK app.

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

I think that Project 42 confirms that Nemesis Sub-Terra isn’t coming back. They’ll most likely keep the maze in there, much like House of Monsters.
