Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Aaah right cool. I read that but I didn't think it applied. I might wait until the may meet down south actually... as my AP expires in march AFTER the march meet.

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Question! I purchased mine last week. Does that mean I have to collect it the next time I'm on park? My AP runs out in March. Should I just do it in March at the March meet? Or do it in Feb? Because if there's a date to collect it by, I don't want to lose £75

Re: ITHOTMK

I don't like how the new version of it always butts in when you're listening to the new Towers Street theme! :lol: Cuz I quite like the current Towers Street theme.

But nah, nothing will beat the lovely, original arrangement for the old Towers Street theme for me.

Re: Exclusive Thirteen Preview weekend

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to come. I'd love to see everything behind the scenes n that. But there's just no way I can afford the £500 spendage for that month... Because I'm not missing the SW6 opening meet on the 20th.

Not worth the risk!

Re: Exclusive Thirteen Preview weekend

Agree it can sound like alot of money, but when you do break it down to what you attualy get in terms of services, it's very cheap.. granted a bit cheaky they make you book for 2 nights to stay friday night as i would rather just stay saturday night but hey - im making a weekend of it... cool weeke...

Re: Restraint Preference

Its not a belt though, its a piece of material with a buckle, that's it... there's no extension to it or anything, meaning if a lot of stress is put on both sides, it wont hold... belts lock in a different way. If you look at some of Nemesis's ones, they're fraying at the sides... I dunno about you,...

How did that happen on Rita? It has a belt to ensure the restraints wont fail! :roll: You do realise if the restraint did fail, that belt would do sod all, don't you? :P Its weak as anything, imagine someone's entire body being put on one thin bit of material... it'd just rip out.

Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

If it were my first ride on SW6, indeed, any major new ride - I would join a 4 hour queue on the first day. Agreed, I've done everything else at Towers, :P so I'm willing to wait that long for something new. I don't think this ride will be amazing, but I also don't think it'll be crap. I'm keeping ...

I swear this topic turns up every year around the same time. :| And what's bad I think the first few times this topic turned up it was actually serious... I also remember Air Blade hand dryers coming into the topic as well. God we live such fantastic lives don't we? :lol: They have bloody pedal taps...

Re: Thorpe Park: Future Discussion

I think they should burn x down to the ground and get rid of the long q line and exit line. Then they should insert an amazing extended duel/haunted house with animatronics that work and last alteast a year . They should also assign someone to maintain this new haunted house/duel ride atleast 3 tim...
