Me and a mate was on park yesterday and was speaking to a member of staff. The ride is all done now and illusions are set. All they have to do is training, testing and security checks. We also saw two staff members go around the shop making that all items were stocked and checked off. I was very impressed with the shop. However, I go to Thorpe park in the 1st of July and we were told it should be open by them. Could be all speculation by the staff but thought I'd let yous know what I got told
I would assume that basic training has already taken place, but retraining with newly refined effects and features may be taking place now, to bring staff up to date. I know that it's a world's first of it's kind in any theme park, and Thorpe Park will want to make sure this is right to impress everyone, but for the sake of everyone who has planned trips, they cannot afford anymore delays, so hopefully they're happy with the attraction now after some tweaking and testing/training is the final steps before announcing an opening date.
Not sure if anyone noticed, but Thorpe Park re-uploaded the Ghost Train Ad on youtube.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e959-olHi_c
Notice how at the end it says the ride is "Coming Soon"...
As said by one of the comments, "I can't wait to ride this in 2021"
Probably nothing really noteworthy (and most likely my geeky side coming out a little here), but having compared the two adverts (they're both still available on YouTube), I'm sure they've enhanced the audio and sound effects in some places on the newly posted one, as well as changing the ride availability to "coming soon".....
Hopefully we won't have to wait too much longer now!
