Of the people presently on the attending list, how many of you are planning on visiting on both the Saturday and the Sunday? Because it's more likely that I'll be able to attend the latter.

After renewing my MAP, I shall now be in attendance :).
Staying over depends on if there might be a trip to the Legoland hotel for dinner or not

I've looked into the Legoland Hotel, and it's too early to organise anything yet - they've yet to set menu prices, or set up a direct-dial line or call centre :P. I'll need to try again in a couple of week's times (half term).

With Simon now owning an annual pass, it is looking like we will be there after all, with the assurance that it won't be hell. Oh god I hope it isn't!

AswoDan takes no responsibility for THORPE PARK being diabolical, in terms of ride availability.

I reckon the park will be medium in terms of busy, usually seems to be. And as it's not the opening day itself, hopefully it won't be as swamped with people clamouring for Swarm as it may have been.

Do you reckon you could get there by public transport from Birmingham? That new ride looks the shizzle!

may I direct you to here.

http://www.thorpepark.com/plan-your-vis ... -here.aspx

It basicly says that Trains from waterloo run to Staines and then a shuttle bus from the Staines train station to Thorpe park run every 15-20 minutes.

So Birmingham to Waterloo, to Staines and then To Thorpe.

Hope that helped :D

Hey Guys.

Just checking if anyone else has booked the TL for the Saturday night. Also, if we so wish - there's always the option of Legoland or Ctl London on the Sunday, if for some reason Thorpe isn't at full power. Hopefully it will be, though - although you never know.

Current List:

1. AstroDan (Travelodge Heathrow T5)
2. DanB (Travelodge Heathrow T5)
3. Mattmash (Travelodge Heathrow T5)
4. John (Travelodge Heathrow T5)
5. Dormiens-Dave
6. Rowe
7. Islander
8. Dan77
9. Stu
10. Satch
11. Simon
12. Dagan (Travelodge Heathrow T5)
13. the its man
14. Fredward
15. Spinballedders

Was hoping to get more than what we currently have, especially with Swarm opening - but hopefully more to add!

:D

It will probably be full, the park. If anything, a few hours at Legoland on Sunday morning just for a change of scenery and to "have done it in 2012" may be preferable - before going back to TP?

ATTENTION THOSE GOING ON THE SWARM MEET. We have booked and paid for a room from 15th-19th at Hethrow T5. sadly due to Stes work commitments we cannot attend now and the ****** at Travel Lodge will not refund the room. If anyone is still looking for a room or has not booked we'd really appreciate it if you could purchase the room off us. £20 a night :)

Message me :)
