Fifty Screams Of Creek (Thorpe Park February Half Term)

For 2015, it is my intention to make each and every blog loosely based on something from film and television.

Within a spin of an old caroulsel from the end of the last season, the 2015 park year has somewhat come upon us and for my first theme park kick of 2015 why not spend it my home park Thorpe? (Chessie and towers were too far :P)

10987722_1071192426231354_6622659982212548507_o.jpg?dl=1

We begin our trip in to the wild (concrete) Jungle here. All bush tucker trials have been mentioned on the board for the experience.

I'M AN ENTHUIAST GET ME OUT OUT OF HERE!!!!!!!

New for 2015, the home camp has been updated and renamed Fin's Bar & Grill.

10845876_1071201089563821_6080689109776082459_o.jpg?dl=1

Now a look inside the home camp.

10957138_1071201096230487_4561786391867328343_o.jpg?dl=1

And this is just one of the many meals you can win in the Jungle after completing all the trials. I found it absolutely delicious and certainly an improvement over what the equivalent was last series.

10991752_1071199969563933_4234576650790801611_o.jpg?dl=1

The mighty queen of the jungle (Swarm) stands tall and proud and in her fourth season, she's still as fantastic as ever.

10925488_1071193439564586_5743517858442224096_o.jpg?dl=1

10991664_1071202329563697_3856825845867769961_o.jpg?dl=1

So is the mighty king of the jungle himself (Stealth).

He was also running impressively well today snd didn't show any signs of giving up (breakdowns). However we found it irritating when he decided to throw little rocks at the camera (front row in the rain is just painful).

Today we are joined by two new faces in the jungle, Ant (CWOA Malcolm) and Dec (Coasterdude) to do some bush tucker trials.

11002715_1071199916230605_6070767111902370430_o.jpg?dl=1

The first Challenge for the camp mates is Celebrity Cyclone.

10549205_1071195586231038_3986140026402928559_o.jpg?dl=1

The outcome in which results in a near by water tower being completely destroyed.

10827971_1071197032897560_2953932979185634846_o.jpg?dl=1

Followed by an eating trial

10857346_1071195699564360_7031011419129274607_o.jpg?dl=1

Let's not forget a face to face team challenge too for camp immunity.

10960372_1071193486231248_1101173331974559616_o.jpg?dl=1

But who will be doing the next trial? Professor Drunk's Teacup Twisters ;)

10960142_1071193446231252_5346038126440487821_o.jpg?dl=1

CWOA Malcolm is chosen to do this trial (voted by the public). Unfortunately he drops all the stars (his bag) half way through the challenge.

10984510_1071197042897559_6358068322631672762_o.jpg?dl=1

And is taken to the Jungle Jail.

But he is soon released as it's not quite ready.

10974185_1071192432898020_8969467739324211007_o.jpg?dl=1

This section of the jungle was out of bounds today.

10982586_1071202409563689_2963682023495622445_o.jpg?dl=1

So is this section.

10981947_1071193476231249_3929890136294810776_o.jpg?dl=1

Shame this isn't appearing in the start of the series.

The Dead end of the jungle. Crossing this will end up will being bitten by Live Snakes.

Somesay this slide is plagued with critters :]

The Camp mates are suddenly sent to mysterious area

10858525_1071202326230364_3361473497289071717_n.jpg?oh=6447e744daacf2c9352027eeed6d73a0&oe=558D2363&__gda__=1431506268_9fad513dc906986dd56cd70176eb447a

Where numerous tests [scientific tests] will await them to see who makes it to the next show.

[off topic]

Braniac was an absolutely fantastic show, full of interesting experiments and tests which was very entertaining to watch. Well worth making a trip in to the jungle for.

10923625_1071197062897557_7018264318429972115_n.jpg?oh=d0e437dbf197523927c0724bb23cef8e&oe=555AEA1D&__gda__=1434938999_d67e5f634dcbb65ae7e1fe15da64c93b

Despite the limited line up of trials availible, all the additions open proved to be very reliable with no problems and difficulty.

10991423_1071201079563822_1170118536737627332_n.jpg?oh=7c282072ad9e45bc2e743c50d0010967&oe=555AB18B&__gda__=1430811828_e486c343f140a4b4b08b3ab9da7a498d

Except The Fish which despite his reduced time in the camp had to be taken off a couple of times because of suddenly stopping through the routine.

10676273_1071195702897693_5467459723603779911_n.jpg?oh=4a07a20ea9efe82acff6f985734e690a&oe=5549E5D3&__gda__=1435872600_0d49bba20edc64437504ae44ee2eea73

Lets hope this bit of the jungle receives some tlc next season.

The votes have been registered for who the next to leave camp will be

And Unfortunately it is Matt Creek [me], which means we will have to end the update in a moment.

Critics Review

Despite the lack of attractiones open, Thorpe Park's February Half Term proved to be a great day out, not just opening two of their best coasters Swarm & Stealth, both of which ran faultless [except for that front ride stealth in the ride] but performing the Braniac show [which considering I didn't see it at easter] I found highly enjoyable.

. The Dodgems and Tea cups were as fun as ever and depth charge and the fish were okay too. Angry birds was good too except the lack of water during the show [ oh Merlin :P].

The coasters were only on one train as whilst it shouts 'Old Thorpe Problems' it didn't need the second ones as the queue rarely passsed 10 minutes all day. Shame more rides weren't open, X & Inferno being good examples but still had a good day and look forward to the main season.

The Real Thing comes the end of the next month.

But bigger better things are coming in the future ;]
