Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

It's silly though, why not drop it to £5? People are much more likely to hand over a £5 note rather than have to faff about looking for an extra pound surely? Meh, I don't know! I'd be happy to pay £21 for a day using a bogof voucher. Seeing as i wont have an AP this year, I will have to! My housema...

Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

Forgive me for my ignorance on this matter at the moment, but do we know what the car parking charges this year will be? If it's still £6 thats when it would get disgusting though. Do they really need to charge for the car park when the entrance is this high? :|

Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

Looks expensive from the cover but when you think about it, how many people actually pay for full priced entry? Not many I would wager! At least this seems somewhat more reasonable than legoland jumping up to that price! At least at towers there is enough to do in a day! My Uni did a summer ball las...

Re: Oblivion - Now sponsored by Fanta

Nice to have you back, Liam! :lol: It's posts like that that made me read the forum! This seems to me like a more permanent McFly Nemesis retheme from back in 2006 (or was it 2007?) The thing is, sure they get money, but that seems to be all they care about now. They'll always get visitors back! Joe...

Re: THORPE PARK Annual Pass Day

In short - Crap - On the long side of things, however! I had fairly high expectations today. Thorpe in may last year, whilst not being perfect, was actually pretty good. I got a fair amount of rides and enjoyed my day without the usual rabble and general confused and unorganised feel that the park u...

Re: Fourth DLP cast member attempts suicide

Also when she tried to leave Disney the managers wouldn’t allow her to do that. It seems the only way to get fired is the piss off the managers. I'm sorry, but NO job can stop you from leaving. A. It's in their contract. B. Theres nothing stopping you from just not turning up... Also, I never said ...

Re: Fourth DLP cast member attempts suicide

I do think people are being somewhat over-analytical here. It's a tough job with long hours, crap pay, and knowing what the french are like extremely strict and "bossy" control over each and every employee. They're renowned for their cynical and pessimist views on things. Granted, they're ...

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

Hmm... well. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do next year. I want to renew cuz my pass has served me well and I've saved A LOT of money with it over the past two years. The only thing is, I cant drive... YET! I'm debating getting a premium just because I want the full package, and it would be v...

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

If Merlin want everyone to have these new Premium Passes then how can they justify the restrictions on attractions in the first place? The normal passes had restrictions, we weren't happy but accepted that fact. The premium pass sold to far fewer people and waived the restrictions. Now if everybody...

It looks to me as if they've just gone all cheap and thrown all the unused crap from over the years.

It's not a rumour, it's speculation due to there being only one marquee, and Terenzi Horror Nights doing the same last year.
