  1. They do keep giving it a go with this place. It'd need serious investment to get off the ground, so I don't have much hope. I hope they bring back Screamland. That was a decent event. Do you have a source for Richard Cadell owning the place? Only thing I can see is that he loaned a ghost train. It appears Sands Heritage own the place.
  2. To be fair, I don't think rides need a huge theme at Thorpe Park, it would always have worked having minimal theming just like six flags/Cedar Fair IMO.
  3. Will be interesting to see this progress. Many are pointing at Zamperla being the ones looking after this project. Not sure they have the experience with fast launches let alone one of the fastest!
  4. Very bizarre name for the coaster indeed. Think the ostrich one will be fine as its meant to be a Super Jumper ride.
  5. Agreed, exact words I would also use!
  6. Great news! Will look forward to following the construction of this. With this, Jumanji, the dueling coasters at Legoland and a potential new indoor Waterpark, the South has lots to look forward to! Exciting times!
  7. It hasn't been too bad so far. Some friends went last weekend and said it was a waste having fasttrack. I went on Friday with a few from here and the queues peaked at 35 mins. Fastrack single shots are available for £8 on the night.
  8. As noted in the topic title the date has been set for Saturday 8th August 2022. Meet from 9:30am - 10am in the dome outside Vibes. On the day I will also be checking my Direct Messages (DM) every 15 mins for the first hour for late arrivals to get in touch and arrange meet up, but be aware we may be in a queue or on a ride. I recommend arriving nice and early if you can as security can sometimes take a while to get through and we will not be able to wait too long. Also if you are collecting the Fright Nights tickets this is done at the Island Ticket Centre located before security (details on this package below). We will be purchasing the Fearsome Four Package for the trip. £37 for non pass holders and £32 for pass holders. Important information on the package and purchasing here. Fearsome Four add-on Instructions. You must collect a wristband from the Island Ticket Centre located before security, this will be used in conjunction with your e-ticket or paper ticket to gain entry to each attraction. You can complete each of the three scare mazes and the scare experience in any order, and at any time between 3pm and 9pm. One entry per maze/scare experience. Other than that its a very simple, chilled out day and night riding the rides and catching up with everyone. Should be fun! The TPM meets are always great fun and the idea is to go round as a group getting to know each other, have fun and spend time with people who share the same interests. If you have never been to a meet before don't feel put off, we were all there once. Once you get there you'll feel a part of the group straight away. If you have any queries drop me a message or comment below.
  9. A vehicle being stripped does not confirm a rides closure! In fact a stripped car is more promising than just leaving it as is until the end of the season.
  10. I don't believe the third boat has been used at all this year and often it seems to have been running leaving one row empty on the two boats on the circuit, though not sure why.
