  1. Seeing as there won’t be any meets for a while, I think TPM should have social distancing parties/virtual get-togethers on something like Skype or Zoom Or even just a big group chat?
  2. Indeed, I’m sure this was part of my contract when I worked there. It was inevitable during Fright Nights that you’d do more than that working 5 days a week!
  3. I have amusing images in my head of rides being sparsely batched, ie 8 people on Rush in total, one on each end of the row, waving at each other as they swing past Oh and could you imagine Hex...(I’ve actually ridden that in a small group, with nobody else...was actually pretty creepy, just us on our own in the Octogan But also the best ride I’ve had on it with nobody else talking and ruining it!) In all seriousness, I really don’t see how the parks will still be open by the weekend.
  4. Agreed that the staff really need to do their bit properly! I see so many posts in the FB group about staff not signing the card at all, and also not enforcing the plus 3 rule. The honest RAP holders are having to do their job for them. Some have also witnessed guest services issuing passes even when people haven’t had the correct evidence! This is the kind of crap needs to be sorted out. When I worked at Thorpe back in 2007 - 2008, I saw other staff members not bothering to fill out the cards and not sticking to the plus 3 rule. It’s been going on for far too long. EDIT: The 2 year thing actually came into place last year (so those who registered in 2019 are on the system for 2 years, whereas previously it was just 1 year). It is NOT new for 2020.
  5. Ah that KMG Afterburner control panel - sadly Vortex’s ain’t as exciting as that Literally has: start key slot, start button, cycle stop, E-Stop, shunt trip (the big black one like Rush has, which basically cuts ALL power, alas it was very rarely used), and restraints switch. The most fun you could have with it was the PA system/sound buttons I used to like starting and stopped the boarding announcement...”Vortex is an intense ride.” “Vortex is an intense ride.” “Vortex is an intense ride.”
  6. Me and Stuntman will be there - meant to say this about a week or so ago
  7. LOOOOOOL. During half term week? Huh??!! @Glitch - dammit I wanna watch Airplane! now
  8. Alpen Hotel is not returning this year I’m still tempted to do the charity event though, wanted to do it for years
  9. So how does this splitting up in Creek Freak Massacre work? Is it like Cabin In The Woods, where they’d split you off into smaller groups, or do they individually pick people/send them off on their own?

    2019 Season

    It was definitely at Thorpe (not sure if it was at Chessie as well) - the amount of times I had to endure that as a ride host

    Hex

    Christ, this change sounds horrendous. Cringey. Bloody awful. Hex is one of my favourite things about Towers, and always a highlight when I visit. It’s sad and frustrating to hear that they’re destroying the atmosphere in there with annoying, cheesy “Come this way guys!” stuff, which it was doing absolutely fine without. What’s more, this is an attraction that relies so strongly on the atmosphere, whilst also creating its own atmosphere (I.e by utilising the Towers themselves). You can’t just plonk shouty staff members in there. Also, it hardly ever has a queue - so what’s the issue if the odd guest is a bit slow to leave the Octagon scene anyway? I can hardly imagine people have actually been left behind in there! (Or maybe they have, and Towers are now retrieving their skeletons, hence the ride closure.)
  12. Ooh a pirate-themed maze! Maybe they’ll use parts of Black Buccaneer for the theming
  13. Haven’t been to Chessie yet this year (even though I’ve wanted to!) Some people moan about it/aren’t bothered about going because “It’s always busy” but I always manage to have fun there I don’t get that with Thorpe, instead I just feel let down. Yes, I have a MAP and can go whenever, yes, I’ve done the rides hundreds of times. That’s not the point. The lack of fun/relaxing, less busy attractions like Logger’s and CCR is a problem IMO. I’m not just being sentimental, it’s something the park needs.
