  4. "Reverting" to Thunder River would mean changing a few colours and the name. They're hardly going to put Thunder's waterfalls and extra rapids back after recent events with rapids rides. The rumba theme is mostly all gone now anyway, it's just a big brown nothing now.
  5. I've also heard interesting things about Rumba but mainly from people who aren't really credible and haven't seen anything going around the theme park community. Who did you hear this from?
  6. Seen it mentioned on TowersStreet by relatively reliable people.
  7. I personally can't wait to experience the Jungle Rangers,River Rafts and Treetop Hoppers. I hope Chessington theme the indoor section of the log flume will.
  8. A few photos of the refurbished flume pieces from the company doing the overhaul in case anyone is interested (doesn't show much): https://www.garmendale.co.uk/blog/log-flume-refurbishment/
  9. Could you explain this for the uninitiated? Never knew it was planned for use elsewhere.
  10. No I didn't I heard someone else say that this rumour was going round the theme park community!
  11. That's not a real rumour, you just made that up didn't you? 🙄

  13. I assume by "remove" you mean "close it and just leave it to rot"?? 😛 Would be nice to see some form of work done on the rapids to freshen it up a bit but I can't see that being a priority for Thorpe at the moment. Especially if money is tight as we have been led to believe.
  14. I doubt it's true, if they did revert it back to Thunder River it probably wouldn't mean anything would change other than a new vinyl sign badly stuck over the Rumba Rapids sign.
  15. They are nothing alike , pirate falls is a proper log flume, just not a massive drop
  16. I’m not riding the Crocodile Flume. Grabbing a kiddie coaster Cred is one thing, but a kiddie water Cred? Nah I’m alright. Anything could happen with this updated area. Except the opening of a Rainforest Cafe.
  17. Yup, can fully see the park reverting Rumba back to Thunder. Along with bringing back Pirates 4D and removing DBGT for the return of the Arena. On second thoughts, they’ll probably keep the ride the same until they remove it whenever that is.
  18. Mattgwise I should fit in the boat as I believe that the person sat at the back in a pink raincoat is a full grown women. I'm a very short man at only 5ft in height so my slim frame should slip into the boat with ease. I'm terms of length and height of the track its the same as Pirates Falls at Legoland Windsor isn't it?
  19. I'd still prefer "Rumba Rapids", but make it more like a British Expedition in the Jungle. Make an orginasation called River Adventure Tours & Expedition, or R.A.T.E. for short.
  20. I am one that does love Millenium Force, my second favourite ride on park. It does have airtime, yet people say it doesn't and it just flies around most of the course, which is what I love. That soundtrack however, bloody annoying!
  21. The boats are a lot smaller on the log flume coming to Chessington. Here is the exact ride...
  22. I have not heard of any rumours personally among the coaster community, and don't think we will see anything like that happen. A retheme or refurb would be nice though.
  23. I like it, though honestly I do prefer Dragster, Steel Vengeance, and Maverick over it. Its a good ride, that first drop kick ass, but I do kinda admit on the first ride I was slightly underwhelmed.
  24. Imagine getting to the park at 2am to know that you will be riding at some point during the day.
  25. Sorry MarkC I wasn't aware that there was already a thread for this subject.
  26. I should fit into the Crocodile's on River Rafts. I went on Pirates Falls at Legoland Windsor. I think River Rafts and Pirates Falls are both the same size, and maybe even manufactured by the same company. If you compare pictures \videos of both the flumes Pirates Falls looks taller but I think the wooden rooth on top of the drop creates this optical illusion. Can my fellow forum members please tell me if they think I'm correct?
