    Thorpe Park Fright Nights 20th Anniversary

    Given how popular the classics are, do we really think Thorpe will want to risk using names like Big Top, Experiment 10 and Asylum when their audience has what could perhaps be deemed as unrealistic expectations? At most we might get a scare zone referencing characters from previous attractions...

    Alabama Splash Adventure 2021

    Yeah as much as we obviously knew to expect a slide, a matt racer?! I mean that's pretty basic. I'm kinda surprised a waterpark such as Alabama Splash Adventure doesn't have one already. Really odd thing to hype up.

    Universal Studios Florida vs Islands of Adventure

    For me, there is no competition. The only ride I enjoy at Universal Studios Florida is Revenge of the Mummy (which in all fairness is fantastic). Unfortunately, the supporting line-up is lacking. Rip Ride Rock-it is dull and has a nasty rattle, Gringotts is the first ride i've ever been on where...

    New Mack Prototype

    Oh wow, is it just me or was this a pretty terrible display of the new prototype carriage. The spinning, as already mentioned, looks very tame in comparison to the earlier test on Blue Fire with the Time Traveller train. With such little movement from the carriage it really does make it seem...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    Totally agree, people are already underestimating it, which is a real shame. Black Mirror will be such a hard IP to do right, but I have faith in Thorpe. I think people will be surprised. I just hope people give it a chance. I do however think it's interesting what @InsomniaMelon said about...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    I'm excited, but being a scare attraction enthusiast above anything else, I am worried about the fact this means we're loosing yet another indoor maze at Thorpe. I'm sure they've got something planned for Fright Nights for a new replacement maze for Living Nightmare in another location, but i'm...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    Nope, I'm a Celeb was replaced by Jungle Escape which has been confirmed to be returning. I assume, based off rumours, that this is replacing Walking Dead: Living Nightmare using the old Slammer Queue as it's line.

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    What the hell?! I actually got it right ? Black Mirror: Labyrinth has just been announced as some form of interactive experience. Sounds interesting. Nice IP, question if it will appeal to the audience of Thorpe, but i'm interested.

    The first UK RMC; where will it happen?

    Uh guys? What the hell? What about the Iron Horse conversion of Gullivers World's Antelope coaster? ? It's going to have a launched lift hill, break the wooden inversion record AND have more airtime moments than SteVe, El Toro and The Voyage combined! And that's not even mentioning the octuple...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    I hate to say it but I really can't see that being the case. I don't think the Hypercoaster was ever anything more than speculation. Unfortunately, I can't see any coasters coming to Thorpe for a reasonable number of years. It's underperforming and they're not going to want to invest in the park...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    What if they used a pre-built space? They're pretty limited with indoors locations, but i'm sure they could find somewhere. Hell it could even be something as simple as an event or maybe some form of an immersive AR game based around an app. Their budget is probably pretty small and I absolutely...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    So we all know how much Merlin love their IP's right? First INITIALISING and now Privacy and Pixelated Faces? Black Mirror anyone? No idea how on earth they'd make an experience out of that, but could be a potential thing?

    What is the wettest water ride you've ever been on?

    Pretty surprised by the number of votes for Valhalla to be honest. It's one of the wettest in the UK for sure, but I find that's pretty reliant on the hammers being turned on. Stormforce 10 is easily the wetter ride purely from the backwards drop on the back row. Love getting drenched with dirty...

    What is your favourite drop tower?

    So Tower of Terror (Orlando) is the clear winner for me. It's the combination of the immersive way the story is bought to life and the surprisingly intense, yet fun drop and launch sequences. I dare say it's pretty much the perfect ride. Detonator gets bonus points for being stupidly intense...

    Accident at Alton Towers

    OMG!!! Dangerous ride, should be shut down now. It's a public health risk!!! I'm never taking my kids again!!! Theme parks should be banned!!! They're sooooo dangerous!!! ? In all seriousness though good to hear it's nothing serious. Sounds like it must've just been some freak illness. But...

    Accident at Alton Towers

    So it would appear a guest has been taken away by air ambulance today according to the AT Facebook page. Hoping it's nothing major. Does anyone know anything more?

    Accident at Alton Towers

    Says the one resurrecting a topic which hasn't been posted in for over a year... :rolleyes: Cool to see you're a new member, but i'd recommend posting on more recent topics and adding something to the discussion rather than attacking a member on a dead topic. Dear god I created this monster of a...

    Orlando Size Restrictions/Restraints

    Hi everyone. Myself and a friend have booked a holiday to Orlando next year to visit all of the parks and resorts and we were wondering if anyone has any advice on size restrictions when it comes to fitting on rides/restraints. My friend has unfortunately faced huge issues fitting on rides in...

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021

    Damn it really is quite a large area. Will definitely be interesting to see how they use the space. As much as I want a GG woodie, something tells me this isn't what we'll be seeing. I hope I am wrong, but I think that's probably a couple of years down the pipeline. Definitey excited to see what...

    Top 10(ish): 2020 Edition - page 96

    Even for a first inversion coaster I still think it could pack a bit more of a punch. It's cool that it has a following, but I just don't think it was the best use of space. I really don't understand how anyone could like Falcons Fury though, it's awful. There's very little falling sensation. I...
