    Thorpe Park 2020

    They really need to do something the last time I visited was 2016 and that was a free visit due to complaining about Derren's Browns ride being closed the first time all day and then we return and go on it and its basically a VR experience I could have had at home with my friends tickling my legs, anyway you get the gist. The UK industry as a whole needs to step up because the worldwide and European parks are knocking it out of the park and here in the UK we can't even seem to get to first base! After going to theme parks worldwide I have no desire to return to Thorpe Park and infact if a friend suggests it I resent the notion! When I could go to Tokyo Disney Sea for the day for £50 why would I pay near enough that for somewhere as sub par as Thorpe Park.

    You can't start and then not expect us to ask you to finish... Personally for the next coaster I'd just like to see something that isn't over extremely quickly and packs a punch throughout.
  6. Hint: Look at the weather before turning up. 😎
  7. Yeah I definitely get Thorpe withdrawal symptoms. Gosh I miss those long queues, weather delays and dirty buildings. Sometimes though I miss Swarm, Stealth, Inferno, Detty and Tidal Wave though.
  8. I myself have only been attending since March 2017, and I echo what has been said above, I felt a part of the group by the second ride of the day. Come along and see for yourself. Try it once, if you enjoy it come again, if not then at least you tried it and don't have to again! It's just like the advice I give to those who are scared to go on a ride. They then go on and say it's awesome!
  9. I was merely joking! Obviously! Worth pointing out though that whilst you think its a sad topic title, some others may not! It's a Thorpe forum, for people who like Thorpe so there will be people who have withdrawal symptoms!
  10. Just because I've looked in the topic doesn't mean I feel the same......
  11. I can safely say that meet-ups are a fun and great occasion, whether your brand new to this forum or have been a user for years. quite a few of regular attendees were in that position once too, but have now become staples to many of the meet-ups. whether you are an avid park fan or just like the social side, all are welcome.
  12. I am considering attending. I've never been to a meet before and am quite unsure but hoping to come.
  13. In case anyone on the forum who hasn't been to a meet before is considering coming to this one and is a bit nervous, I was in exactly your position last year, the 2018 Christmas meet was my first ever TPM meet, and I don't regret it for a second. Within minutes I felt a part of the group and had a wonderful day! So much so I've been to plenty of meets since then! If you're considering coming, just go for it!

    If you call binge watching Theme Park Worldwide Videos "working" that is.

    I know what your all thinking. No, I won’t be there opening day. it’s a plus one for another time.
  16. I predict a hung forum.
  17. Missing Storm Surge so, so much. Counting the hours here. /s

    I don't know what you're talking about... (this is what I get for posting on TPM when I should be working)

    Looking forward to seeing Alex Crump and Co. there on press preview day.

    Exactly. That, and wearing your pass around your neck just looks silly innit. Also, please ban Josh for saying "there" instead of "their" ❤️ In fact, whilst I'm here, ban everyone h8ing on Stealth.
  22. Missing Stealth, Swarm & Creak Freak Massacre? Yep. The rest... not so much m8.

    In fairness, repeat visitors do spend money - the trouble is that their spending on any given day is minimal since they spread out over several visits. Ultimately means that they drag down the spend per customer (which of course any business will use as an indicator) and that causes this outlook that they don't spend money.

    Thorpe doesn't need a standout coaster for enthusiasts. They don't like spending money, make up less than 5% of the market and expect the world for free. Source MAP Group

    Thorpe Park 2020

    How many parks in the world have a truly standout coaster for enthusiasts? What even IS a truly standout coaster for enthusiasts? By that reckoning you'd rule out a good number of parks because others already have bigger and better variants of their rides? No point going to Walibi or Parc Asterix or Mirabilandia or Port Aventura then. You can't say that your local park has a good selection of rides and then also say they're not good enough (well, Colossus and Saw ARE terrible). It's complete opposites to what's being said. Even having 3 good solid coasters is probably about average for an European park who doesn't really have the space or ability to build high or long. Walibi Holland only got that number this year after Untamed! And it's arguably better than the amount of solid coasters at Phantasialand. Just sounds like jealousy that the park is standing still, but like I said before, it did it's mass development the decade before, when the biggest ride was actually Loggers Leap when I grew up with it. It was going to stop sometime and unfortunately has coincided with some weird managerial decisions and mismanagement.

    It's not a wrong opinion, of course not. There is no wrong opinion. I just don't get the logic behind anyone saying that a park has "5 very solid coasters" and complaining that one of them isn't a headliner. If I've travelled to a park, I'd come away very happy if I'd ridden 5 decent coasters (and that's as an 'enthusiast' too). In fact, I can't think of many parks in Europe you can come away from and say that...

    The new kid cred for next year has had a slight name change, and will be called Duplo Dino Coaster rather than Duplo Dream Coaster... https://www.legoland.co.uk/DUPLO2020
