Is that double drop log flume loggers leap by any chance?
If so the wildlife around has grown immensely since this picture and the ride looks so different now.

Yeah it is :D

My old family videos from Thorpe Park (earliest 19 years ago) are a blast to watch! :P Should try and get them converted to DVD so I could upload them!

Thank you. These photos are a rare glimpse into the theatrical magical dark rides of the past. This is particularly exciting as I have recently been doing a lot of research on Terror Tomb, and the Haunted House. Brilliant!

The bridge monster in original colours... WITH ACTUAL TEETH! And look how far he leans forward!

The ghost corridor... ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A CORRIDOR

And that brilliant finale set piece on Terror Tomb, before it was deprived of its madness. I only rode Forbidden Tomb once, but this scene stayed with me forever! Consider my brain spiked.

Thank you very much.
Got any more?! :P
