But not all schools have broken up yet so that could still be the last of the school trips, or am I just trying to be optimistic :P

Can't really get there early as we're coming down on train, and we can't really get there much before 12 as we come down through London and before 9:15 it costs a bomb!

Last time we went it was the day the schools went back early September was bliss, an empty park don't think we can do that this time though

Yeah there were still some school groups but I would expect it to be as busy or even busier in August. I don't know for sure though I have never been in August!

School trip days, especially the last few days of term are always the worst.

If you think about the summer holidays it's over 6 weeks so less concentrated, if that makes sense. Alton Towers isn't too busy in the holidays 30-60in queues when I've been so wondered if Thorpe was the same

I have come to a decision and that is that Saw is my favourite coaster at Thorpe Park. The reason being there are two really fun elements. The first one is the air time hill just before the photo and the second in the sudden drop just after the photo.

Actually scrap that, I'd say it's joint with N:I. A bloody fun coaster nonetheless. :D

Who is actually offended by any of these words:

It was obviously a joke, its supposed to be unashamedly immature. There's no foul language really. Nothing you wouldn't hear on any comedy. If it was all Cs and Fs fair enough but its not.


Using the name of a very famous, well loved recently deceased person to advertise such a crude video is very insensative and offensive.

And it's just irresponsible and extremely unprofessional to add tags of overt sexual innuendo to a video whose audience very much includes children.

The video itself is tacky, crude and just chavvy - but that's not offensive. Just really unprofessional on their behalf. But I guess it reflects the nature of the park.

Saws queue currently never goes over 60 - 70mins. Yesturday it was 60 at peak, 15 mins for the most. It was running very smoothly aswell and all effects bar the plaza sign and the water jets were working.

I don't think the water/blood effect will ever return now.

It'd surprise me if it didn't - it's hardly a difficult or complicated effect. They were certainly working a month ago when I went...

Its quite complicated. The water is filtered through chemicals and is heated to 30 degrees to give a better bloody feel.

I think its the best effect on the ride so I hope it returns.

Are you sure about that? :? A source for that info would be good. I swear that when I've been 'sprinkled' by it it's felt cold, though perhaps it wasn't working properly at the time...

Was about to enquire as to why it'd need treating as well, (I was under the impression that mains water doesn't generally need treating if you're just spraying small amounts at guests; only if you're actually creating a body of water that could, say, be fallen into), but that's make perfect sense if they're going to heat it to near-body temperature.

The water needs treating as it would be the perfect temperature for bacteria to grow/live.

Any one have ideas on queuing times tomorrow? I have the chance to visit but can't really be bothered with queue long times!
Thanks for riding the Runaway Minetrain, we hope you enjoyed your trip. Choo! Choo!

^Well I have just looked at the BBC Weather Forecast for tomorrow at Thorpe. It is going to be dry and sunny and a fairly warm day. Also most of the schools are now of for their summer holidays. So them to mixed together could result in 1hr+ queues for example Saw: The Ride. I went last Saturday and I had to wait 1hr and 45minutes for Saw so there the kind of queue times your going to get I would have thought. :)
