    Wicker Man - New for 2018

    worlds first coaster to incorporate wood and fire?

    Rumba Rapids

    I personally believe it's due to Thorpe being stingy and understaffed. According to Lord Sambrooke, Thorpe are using staff in some of their scare attractions instead of actors/people paid specifically for fright nights. Also correct me if I'm wrong but do thorpe still have staff dotted around rumba to deter people messing around? I guess Thorpe don't like the idea of operating a rapids in the dark when they can't trust members of the public from dicking about.

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    Doesn't help that Melin have a complete stranglehold on the London area, where a vast number of the population live and the majority of tourists are visiting. https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?oe=UTF8&msa=0&ie=UTF8&mid=1paY13gdMrhs9c8mWGV_e7L_SGMg&ll=53.04026223649208%2C-1.7575460000000476&z=7

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    @Mark9 Can you blame us though? Especially when we look at the continent to a park like Phantasia land and they build new rides with original IP's or even in the case of Europa Park when they rebuild a classic ride after a disaster. Call it jealousy but it is a shame to think that the UK was KILLING it in the 90's.

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    Cannot agree more. Wouldn't the profits be far higher if chessie just created their own IP?

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    probably never. Shame really as there's that large green field behind dragons fury that can be a whole new area. also, it annoys me when companies do this type of marketing when they name drop their own IP's. If they were that cherished, why did you rip them out?

    Can this be unpinned now?

    Fear on a Ride

    What happened mate? By the way you described it, it sounds like you got into an altercation with a member of the public. I'm aware that chavs roam free at merlin parks but it's easy to ignore them and carry on with your day.

    Vampire

    How long you guys think Vampire has got left? Personally I think it has 2/3 more years left. Most Arrow suspended Coasters had a life of around 25 years, Vampires in its 28th year. Big Bad Wolf at Busch Gardens was removed after 25 years and that looked like a better maintained coaster than Vampire. Will it take a horrific accident for Chessington to start thinking of its removal?

    Logger's Leap

    Back of the seats on vampire tell you not to rest your feet on the seat in front. no ones broken their knees so far. As for what I'd like to see replace Loggers would be a new log flume, a longer one at that.

    Bubbleworks

    C'mon Archive, give them some credit. They did eventually sync up the music in the fairground scene...... after 6/7 years of it being broken.

    Bubbleworks

    This is so exploitative. Look, we all know about theme parks and the changes that have occurred but the average person may not. Some people may not even know that the re theme occurred at the end of '05, so to advertise this whole closing down and backstage tours as one thing when it's obviously not must go against some consumer rights. Must come under false advertisement surely. Some of you may think I'm being pedantic with all this negativity but considering the seasons they've had in recent years I feel they are now just exploiting peoples trust and naivety. Like I said previously, Merlin see no worth in this park anymore, milk all they can until numbers get so low then they'll sell it off.

    Bubbleworks

    I personally think they are doing this to get a surge of punters through gates for the end of the season to get their last rides in on the bubbleworks. It almost worked with my family. Mum: Did you hear that bubbleworks is closing? We gotta go to chessington to get our last rides in. Me: Well, according to a source online, the ride will stay virtually the same bar some new theming along with a new IP Mum: So they're not actually removing the ride? No point going now. In recent years, I really just want chessington removed altogether. I cannot see any improvement made to the theme park side of it and believe that it would be better off as a zoo through and through but as long as tourists and naive families turn up, it will continue to make money despite the gradual increase in customer dissatisfaction.

    The Haunted House

    That's brilliant news. Always loved dark rides and all the concepts and ideas that go with 'em. Although I did ride the haunted house when it was still knocking about my "home turf" is chessington so the bubbleworks and 5th dimension parts should really overload my brain with useful pub knowledge.
