Remembering 'Brave it Alone' in Studio 13 at Thorpe Park in 2014

As we approach the start of the preparation for Fright Nights 2024, I thought I'd do a few more blog post ramblings on some nostalgic Thorpe memories I have.   I started off a couple of years ago now, with Dr Pepper Sun Scream, then Brave it Alone in Cabin in the Woods back when it opened in 2013...  Now it's time for another trip down memory lane, to Brave it Alone in Studio 13, 2014 (a staggering 10 years ago somehow).   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -  

Being an enthusiast isn't what it used to be - a nostalgic ramble

You know those 'memory' notifications you get on your iPhone now and then, where it features a load of photos from a past trip?

Remembering Sun Scream at Thorpe Park

As we approach the start of the 2022 season, I thought I'd do a few blog post ramblings on some nostalgic Thorpe memories I have.   Let's start off with Dr Pepper Sun Scream!     Launching way back in 2009 when Saw opened, Sun Scream ran every year for many summers at the park, bringing live music, silent discos, stunt displays, beatboxing, sideshows and festival vibes.   In reality, Sun Scream wasn't much in terms of an event, starting off as simply a st

Am I getting too old for theme parks? 🤔

This is something that's been playing on my mind for the past 3 years or so.   Whenever I visit a theme park these days, there's usually one or two moments throughout the day where I feel like the odd one out.  At 30 years of age, I feel old.   I look round me when stood in a queue, and most of the other guests are teenagers or adults with kids.  Yes, there are a few couples or older groups etc who visit, but they're a rare sight.   Usually the feeling passes after
