Well, it looks as if this is going to be a pretty good year for the park, and I'm hoping there will be more general upkeep around the island!

Discuss.

Yup, a really progressive year for the park, what with all the renaming of venues etc.

And wait, is that Roast and Relish thing going to replace the kebabs? It better bloody not.

All joking aside though I'm glad that Thorpe try to keep on top of things by changing up the names of their venues every few years, helps prevent things from going stale.

New arcade on Swarm island? Hmm, would have preferred something else but whatever. I can never see the point of arcades at theme parks, it boggles the mind.

There are new toilets pretty much right next to the arcade.

Glad to see time voyagers go, it was by far the worst attraction at Thorpe, probably the worst "film" I have ever seen. Last year when I went on it there where maybe 10 people waiting for an hourly show.

Hopefully they can do something better with the space.

Maybe it's an arcade inside a church? Cause that'd be appropriate like. Or typical.

If they get Mushihimesama Futari in there I'd totes go, Hell, maybe even Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu Black Label or maybe Deathsmiles Mega Black Label V1.1. I'd probably go **** it to swarm and murder then highscore on them first.

Yes, this arcade does look as if it's going to be inside a church/chapel-themed building, judging by the map. Very fitting. XD

Queue lines?

Tbh, they'd be better off having non-smoking ares.

They have fridges, freezes and several varieties of mould for that Jordan :p

Wait WHAT?!?

No Stealth single rider?
Sadly not, it's now a disabled entrance, despite there being a steep flight of stairs at the end of it, and the fact that there is already a disabled lift entrance.



I'm considering submitting this to Failblog. XD

Well whats the **** point in that?

If they're keeping the disabled lift, then why bother with this?

Sorry to sound like a noob, but this has **** me off. I used SR on Stealth a LOT, it just worked so well!

FFS!
