  1. 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.”
  2. Me and Stuntman will be there - meant to say this about a week or so ago 😆
  3. LOOOOOOL. During half term week? Huh??!! @Glitch - dammit I wanna watch Airplane! now 😂
  4. Alpen Hotel is not returning this year 😭😭😭💔 I’m still tempted to do the charity event though, wanted to do it for years 😁
  5. 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?

    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 😆🙉

    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.)
  8. Ooh a pirate-themed maze! Maybe they’ll use parts of Black Buccaneer for the theming 😂
  9. 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.
  10. And here I am thinking, “If only I lived nearer” and that it would be cool to meet Wardley in person, rather than see his face in a video 🙃 And I want that pin! 😜

    On the subject of RAP - whilst the idea of someone needing to have a blue badge/DLA/PIP sounds like a good idea, it could also be unfair, mainly because of the reforms to the benefits system. I personally know people who have lost their benefits when moving from DLA to PIP. There are many who simply don’t apply for PIP because they’re so put off by the process/the though of probably being turned down anyway. With regards to blue badges and the new criteria, from having a look it would still only cover those with more severe difficulties.
