    On a positive note, the Europa Park press account tweeted this earlier (translated):

    TPM Meets Calendar 2018

    Is the Blackpool meet date going to be confirmed soon or will there be a poll? Just thinking about how fast the accommodation could get booked up in July/the prices going up!

    New Flying Fish resin! Also, there seems to be a shortage of Colossus merch though compared to all the other coasters They were even selling Amity speedway hoodies in the Colossus shop (but they did have Colossus t-shirts).
  7. Yeeeeeeeeah I’ll be there.
  8. Brace yourselves guys, here’s a POV... Genuinely have no idea what’s happening in that tunnel Also it looks like the ORP camera is back where it originally used to be! Wait - WHERE’S THE ELEPHANT?!

    2018 General Discussion

    It was, and I loved it I thought it actually made it much better and more realistic! Also the staircase leading up to the station in Saw was almost pitch black (at one point we struggled to see where we were going!), but again this made it better as it fitted in with the theme Shame they can’t do that more often!

    Yeah, I don’t think Quantum will be open anytime soon On a different note - I hope The Swarm’s effects will be back on soon! At the moment, the area feels a bit incomplete without them, especially after how well they were working last year.

    Yay, new pins I like that they’re doing pins for the flat/dark rides at Merlin parks now. Hopefully we’ll see Rush and Detty pins soon?
  12. This was my thinking too (and yes it does appear to always do the same movement)! Plus I just didn’t think that Thorpe would actually pay someone to do that when they could just use an animatronic Kudos to them if they actually do
  13. What? Confused... Also @MattyMoo - yep, I have that same issue with not having time to adjust the headsets! However, I did notice that the staff on Saturday were helping adjust headsets once they were on, which was good
  14. So, here’s my experience of DBGT yesterday: First VR section: Well my headset was beyond broken; aside from the video being really faint/dark (could just about make out the train windows and seats, then it got worse and I pretty much saw nothing)...when I looked down, I saw a “Now Playing” bar with the play button, etc Live action section: Either there weren’t any actors during our go, or there were, but they weren’t obvious/clearly visible (it wasn’t just me, others noticed this too). So that interrupted the flow of the experience for me, as I left the scene wondering what was going on and where the actors were. However, I do understand why they’ve had to change it/can’t fix the train, so hopefully this will reduce the number of shutdowns. Second VR section: This is easily the best part of the attraction! It’s had more stuff added which works really well, and I did actually jump a little at one of the new parts! And my headset worked perfectly! The only other issue I had was that none of the actors touched me during the VR scenes. Not only did this take something away from the experience, but after the issues during the first VR and then the confusion/anti-climax of the new live action scene, it just added to the inconsistency and confusion. The animatronic getting stuck in the shop was just brilliant Also I’ve never had the floor move before (guess it depends where you stand?) so that was a nice surprise. Overall, I am glad they vastly improved the ride last year and added more stuff to the second VR this year. But I’m getting fed up of VR headset roulette and just the general inconsistency this attraction has.
  15. Seems like quite a few of us were there! Was feeling a bit delicate after a lot of alcohol the night before and it was bloody freezing I think we only spent about 2 hours there before we had to go home to defrost The staff in general seemed cheery despite the weather, in particular the staff on Tomb were good fun Although I didn’t appreciate the miserable looking guy at Hocus Pocus closing the door as we approached and making us freeze outside for no reason (I mean there’s no way it would’ve been full or the people inside would’ve been waiting long, if at all)! Still, it was nice to actually go to Chessie on a completely dead day, rather than having to constantly meander around kids and endless buggies Was weird/quite eerie walking around a silent Transylvania (I’ll always call it that)! Here’s some snowy tigery rocky photos: New, extremely lifelike theming outside Vampire... Also, do you think I was given enough of these? Sorted.
