Just wanted to apologise for effectively starting the TP/AT 'debate'.

Sorry if it got people a bit annoyed and that it was a bit off topic.

Looking forward to Stealth.

No moderators in here yet, i'm shocked

I view all three parks as one, they complement each other, do things the others cant and this argument has been done before and where it should of been, not in a Stealth discussion topic, Stealth v Rita, ok i suppose, parks in general noooooooooooooo.

Tussauds are not trying to make Thorpe better than Alton so it wont be, they want you to visit all there attractions, spend more cash and make more money, simple.

Guys listen, this is ridiculous FFS!.

Please dont fall out over which is better Thorpe or AT, it all comes down to opinions. And yes we all have our views, which we are entitled to air.


Hinting at something Scott? :lol:

Anyway, back to Stealth :W (oops I put in Willy Wonka, where is he to appear soon? :-? :lol: )

Theres no need for a moderator, you had a nice little debate over which is best TP/AT (of which we have had MANY in the past) and you've got yourselves back on topic.

Just what we like to see :D

:D :D

I didnt say there was a need just shocked that we have not seen one, they must all be out :lol: :D :W

All the Tussauds parks have different strengths and different things that i like, thats why they work so well as a group, because they are not the same and not trying to be the same, all good 8)

Hey pps,

Dont know if u r aware but Video 9 and 10 have been put on www.tussaudszone.com.
Vid 9 is brill, u really can see the acceleration the car reaches.

Also, Are thorpe gonna be doing TV adverts for Stealth, and if so, when are they likely to be aired! They are leaving it a wee bit late!

If I remember rightly ads for Colly and Inferno didn't go out until a week or two before the park re-opened. They'll do it to aim to interest people for the Easter hols, first major holiday period and each day tends to have a higher gate figure on average then summer hols.

Suppose less families go away during easter then summer and need something to do to keep the kids entertained.

Inferno didn't go out till the night before opening infact. Colossus was similar.

Ok, ive missed alot since ive been away. Not alot of Stealth discussion gone on though :lol:.

The video testing 10 makes the ride look amazing! I cannot wait till the easter holidays so i can go ride the beast.

AstroDancer, i believe the advert would definately go nationwide as they want as many guests as possible to visit the park. Maybe you were unlucky and never caught them on the TV :-?.

I did have that thought in the back of my head when writing that post (thats why I put I think) but I thought what the hell. In that case it must have been themeing, landscaping and so on.
