  1. Also visited the other week. Have to say I agree about the polish queue jumpers. Certainly runner up in that field only to Port Aventura for me! But such a great atmosphere in the park it didnt ruin it for us. Shame about Hyperion. I only rode on the inner seats as if heard it can be rattly and found it extremely smooth. It think il only ever ride the inside now. What was wrong with the chicken place? I found my family bucket I had almost to myself rather tasty.
  2. Great deal. Might actually consider one for next year seeing as I thoroughly enjoyed my visits this year! Great to see that it can all be finally done online. Didn't you have to go to registration days before, which seemed awfully faffy for us southerners?!
  3. Still detest is even though we got the back more at EnergyLandia more than we ever have at any theme park?? 😂
  4. Yep you can't beat early to mid 00s Fright Nights! Such good times as a teen back then!
  5. 3 isn't many you are right, but for years it was just literally mazes, no scare zones and shows as such. So when you look at it like that it's still more "attractions" as such. For years people complained about lack of scare zones and shows. Plus i'd say you're likely right that Covid is still having a small part of the reason for less mazes.
  6. Line up announced. Interesting the way the video 'freezes' at the end. Scare zones include: The Crows of Mawking Meadow, Lycanthorpe vs Amity High Love Bites The Swarm Invasion Creek Freak Unchained Shows include: Legacy Fire and Light Show Birthday Bash The Crows Mazes: Platform 15 End of the Line (last year possibly?) and Creek Freak Massacre are the only two announced in the video. One more to come... https://www.facebook.com/27217550866/posts/10159375714555867/ Thoughts? Discuss...
  7. Sorry Dom, I'm confused as to why I would like the part you've tagged me in? Very confused?
  8. @Martin Doyle I thought you loathed Thorpes modern day Fright nights 😝 Gotta love the dig there! Tbh I'm just looking forward to actually doing some Halloween events this year!
  9. Other than that the full description doesn't really give much away yet other than there's scare zones and mazes with the mazes still continuing to be up charge, hopefully not a tenner this time round and more in line with the Towers pricing structure. Description currently says... For two terrifying decades FRIGHT NIGHTS has prayed on your darkest FEARS and NIGHTMARES spewing HORRIFIC creatures from their CRUEL domain to take over THORPE PARK Resort. Be sure to brace yourself as the UK’s premier award-winning Halloween event returns this autumn for a FEARFUL celebration! Take in the chilling atmosphere before taking on some of the UK’s most thrilling rides in the dead of night, but beware – FEAR is lurking around every corner. Watch in amazement as you witness AWE-INSPIRING live-action experiences and get your HEART RACING as you venture through SPINE-CHILLING scare zones. True FEAR-seekers can take on the Island’s infamously terrifying scare mazes* leaving you TREMBLING with… you guessed it- FEAR! Then, launch into darkness on Stealth - the UK’s fastest coaster; experience the twisted torment of Colossus - the world’s first ten looping coaster and take on the sick and twisted games of Jigsaw on SAW - The Ride. Join the Thrillmakers to celebrate 20 YEARS OF FEAR at THORPE PARK Resort FRIGHT NIGHTS on 8th, 9th and 10th October PLUS every day from 15th – 31st October 2021. *Scare mazes require an additional paid ticket. Please note: All FRIGHT NIGHTS experiences and attractions are recommended for ages 13+.
  10. Could this unusual choice of a B&M actually be because they've got a package deal and we have that hyper coming to Thorpe in 2024? 😉
  11. Subject to planning permission! Kingston are notoriously very strict with planning!
  12. I was pleasantly surprised how good this coaster was too. Its launch was pretty decent and made for a real fun ride if at the front or back. I will be sorry to see it go TBH. Must be linked to operational costs as like you say it hardly takes up space and I don't see how this could be in the way of a development. Easy to go round or even over any part except the towers! RIP
  13. It's also heavily rumoured to be Jumanji IP. Look at the middle section compared to the Jumanji Board. Can't see it just being a coincidence, but you just never know!
  14. Planning permission has gone in for this development. Plans show that it is indeed a wing coaster and almost certainly from B&m. A year ago and prior I'd have laughed and called people mad for suggesting a B&M. Capacity won't be great with 720pph and a single 6 car wing train seating 24. The ride will feature back and forward launch and take around 1 minute. 2 other junior rides can also be seen in the plans. A somewhat strange addition to be hopefully coming to Chessington, but will certainly be interesting following construction of a coaster for the first time at Chessington in nearly 20 years if this gets planning permission! https://publicaccess.kingston.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=QWYN4XNHM5000&activeTab=summary
