  1. Today
  2. Yep, what @JoshC. said. Bit sad really when you compare what Thorpe is offering for 2019 season vs Paulton's for 2020. And yes, I know that it's not 2020 yet... but if Thorpe had anything big up their sleeves (which I'm pretty darn certain they don't), it would be "out there" by now.
  3. I'm pleased this is catching on 😂😍
  4. I'll just throw it out there that I genuinely think this will be fun. Who doesn't love a giant bouncy castle? But, this still shows the state of the park right now. They've chucked in an inflatable course that wouldn't look out of place at a summer fair as a quick fix. If this is all they can afford, what does that say for the future? I genuinely can't think of any other park in the world which is so desperate for new stuff on such a restricted budget that they have had to resort to adding a bloody inflatable.
  5. Latest Making of video: Track is now finished (with a random ceremony including fire to celebrate, cos why not), with a train on the track ready for testing from June 1st. It confirms the 4th (out of 5) inversions will be a 140 degree stall, and there will be a single rider queue.
  6. Fury at Bobbejaanland will be opening on June 22nd. Here's the state of it at the mo.. The park have also confirmed they will run the ride exclusively forwards for parts of each operating day, so people who don't want to ride backwards can happily ride..
  7. Yesterday
  8. Wow they can't even afford capital letters anymore?
  9. Tbh I was expecting ‘more’ from Thorpe than this. More like its a knockout style inflatables, they look well quite ...... cheap
  10. I think I'm more disappointed in the fact there is not a big knock off printing of a minion or Mickey Mouse. Sad times :[
  11. Exciting new signage update from the lord and saviour;
  12. Not gonna lie - the main feeling I get when looking at it is an intense urge to spend hours jumping/climbing etc on the thing 😁 So did people here honestly think a temporary inflatable, at a Merlin park, would be themed? 😂 Also @Stuntman707 your reply makes nooo sense 🤔
  13. Great to see that the Saw main ride sign has finally been repainted. Happy 10th! 🎢
  14. Last week
  15. Surely people didn't think it was going to be specially designed to fit in the theme. It will just be a bog standard hire, rather than their own, surely!
  16. Coming in to this thread to see what it looks like
  17. Having visited two new European parks, I think it is time to update a few fields. Top 10 Coasters: 1/ Steel Vengeance 2/ Helix 3/ Taron 4/ Maverick 5/ Millenium Force 6/ Shambala 7/ Oziris 8/ Wodan 9/ Nemesis 10/ Icon And now onto the parks: 1/ Europa Park 2/ Cedar Point 3/ Phantasialand 3/ Efteling 5/ Disneyland Paris 6/ Liseberg 7/ Parc Asterix 8/ Alton Towers 9/ Tivoli Gardens 10/ Blackpool Pleasure Beach P.A and Thorpe are now off the top 10 list. Last but not least, everyone needs a park bucket list. Here’s my one for European parks: 1/ Gardaland 2/ Tover Land 3/ Energylandia 4/ Heide Park 5/ Grona Lund 6/ Parque Warner Madrid 7/ Linnanmaki 8/ Hansa Park 9/ Futuroscope 10/ Legoland Billund Some parks are very much the same whilst some have re-entered (Heide notably). Energylandia and Linnanmaki have leap frogged onto the list for numerous reasons. More changes could be afoot in the near future.

    2019 Season

    Popped in for abit today - good to see the park continuing to run well - quiet day, rides running full capacity with minimal queues - Inferno team in particular were running it well with trains not staking.
  19. It might be to do with how jarring it looks. If this attraction was more subtle with it's colours and fitted in with Thorpe's sky blue colour and the rest of Lost City, then maaaaaaaaaybe this would have been alright. But with colours as bright as this and looking so blatantly out-of-place next to the lake and Colossus/Rush/Zodiac, it looks visually revolting. This is just humiliating for the park, similarly to Love Island Lates last year and this will only be 'popular' because it's free. I guarantee if this was an upcharge attraction, the majority of guests would tell Thorpe to shove BounceZilla up where the sun don't shine.
  20. Looks exactly as I expected, not really sure what anyone else was expecting 🤔
  21. I don't remember that time at all to be honest.
  22. BounceZilla be like. Nailed it!
  23. Be interesting to see how popular this proves to be - I actually think it will do pretty well - can see why it’s not everyone’s cup of of tea but do think it will appeal to the GP.
  24. Remember when Thorpe used to be like the second best theme park in the UK? Well, past tense is fun..
  25. Without question the best new investment at Thorpe Park since 2012. (I wish that was a joke!)
