  1. Confirmed that the VR is gone - kind of a shame as it definitely added something to what is otherwise a pretty dull ride IMO!

    I’ve heard slammer described as a lot of things but popular certainly isn’t one of them!
  3. Strange - the £15/£8 was the actual prices during Fright Nights!

    Rides close, they don’t last for ever (especially slammer..) Ghost train was added, as well as 2 rides for kids, Rumba is rumba agree it needs work, Saw alive isn’t “sinking”or it wouldn’t open. As I said, Thorpe has its problems but I think people can be abit extreme...

    No but neither is thorpe so I’m not sure what relevance that has (I won’t deny it has its issues - but “falling apart and removing rides left right and centre” is quite extreme!)
  6. The whole park does that to be fair I’m not sure what they can really do - you only need to dig a few foot down till you hit water (I remember the holes for the TVs were full of water!) it’s just the land the park isn’t on I guess.
  7. There are much much worse car parks around than at Thorpe! Probably a long time - expect it’s one of the major attractions of the premium upgrade to many!

    The point was more that there’s clearly a market for this kind of stuff within the industry rather than the logistics between the 2 😛

    Interesting to see that Disney are holding a gaming event - because no one goes to a theme park to play games they clearly have no idea what they are doing... 👀
  10. They really are keen to discourage people buying at the barriers, last year you could buy on the day on your phone for £8 too, I guess it will be the same this year.

    It was the one where depth charge is which was removed for last season - was used as booth to collect Ride Access passes towards the end of the season.

    Storm Surge

    Not completely true they had looked into it going in the area where Fungle Safari was - not sure why it ended up where it is now.

    I’m not sure why it would push anyone away? It’s a small scale thing in the marquee as an add on to a normal day, those who are interested will be in there those who aren’t will be on the rides, much like Love Island Lates. I can see them wanting to try stuff like this more, similar to what we saw last year with events throughout the year, this time just less zombieish!
  14. If you visit often enough and don’t want to queue £400 is a good price for ultimate fastrack all season to be fair!

    Logger's Leap

    Yeha your right actually - didn’t think of them parts things like water pumps etc will almost certainly be no good by this point. I didn’t mean the alterations were not worth it - personally believe they would have been and it’s a shame it’s not to be.

    No it’s not Blackpool.

    Dont think it’s that simple - think the park genuinely did want it to return, but were not able to to secure the budget for it to do so. A lot of people talk about how it’s been “left to rot” but in reality apart from a few overgrown trees it’s probably not in much worse state than it was on its last day of operation - just the modifications which it requires are deemed not worth it unfortunately.

    A shame but glad it’s been confirmed now. Be interesting to see what the future holds for the area - feel anything what goes there would be part of a much bigger area re-theme.

    The Swarm

    Probably the sensor for the on ride photos at a guess!
  20. Not sure the website is fully updated for it yet - pretty good deal Tbf especially with the inclusion of a Thorpe digi pass too
  21. They get cleaned whilst your in the tunnel scene as far as I know!
  22. Not much of that story adds up to me - someone managed to get the persons bag, get the keys find the car in the car park with no prior knowledge of where it is and drive it out of the car park in the middle of Fright Nights within 40 minutes 🤔

    'I'm a Celebrity' Maze

    Was open throughout the peak periods - so it would help with the queues even if just a little.
