    Cheers, Still silly that it's not just on the ticket selection page! A lot of people will miss this with it being on the event page rather then general ticket page! Also, when they first went on sale they were 4pm to 10pm, then changed to 5pm - 10pm and now are just 6pm to 10pm. Still amazing value regardless.

    Does anyone know why the evening only ticket has disappeared from the ticket selection page of the Thorpe Park website?

    Admittedly I have a friend who said the same about last weekend but I have not had any major issues on the 6 visits I have made this year. Hopefully it will be sorted soon!

    You must have gone on a bad day as my recent visits have been great. Swarm and Stealth regularly dispatching in less than a minute (40 seconds on Swarm in several instances) Nemesis Inferno admittedly has been slow for a couple of seasons now. Really shows how every day can differ.

    As much as queuing is a pain, I think I'd get bored pretty quickly if I always had fast track and barely queued.

    Tidal Wave

    Hilarious! Also hilarious that it says this... Scott Montague asked why Samurai was running with '20 seats unfilled' and thirty minutes later returned to Twitter to report a break down. A blatant lie considering it isn't allowed to run with less than 15 riders!

    Europa Park

    There are plenty of parks in the UK that operate with open crossings so don't think that is due to health and safety being more relaxed in Germany.

    Park Music

    Correction. The "old and more suited" Colossus theme...

    Park Music

    Oh dear, how disappointing! Such a shame when the new station/dispatch was so upbeat and tense! This is just like Colossus area, too calm and fantasy like for the ride. Ah well might as well get used to it

    Absolutely incredible considering this was the root cause of the fire as well. What a phenomenal company and family!

    TPM Blackpool Weekend 20th - 22nd July 18

    Ahhh sorry to hear. It was great meeting you and glad you enjoyed it. Keep an eye out for future events and hopefully see you on another later on in the year or next year.
  13. Good Evening, First of all, if this comes across as odd me organising this meet this was something Marc and Ryan have asked me to do as a favour, having helped out with half the Christmas meet and helping Marc a couple of weeks ago with the Thorpe/Chessington Meet. The date of the event is set as Friday 20th July to Sunday 22nd July. Please take note if you plan to say overnight, it will be your responsibility to book your rooms and unfortunately if you're under 18 we cannot help. If you stayed the night, under no circumstances will TPM get involved and take responsibility with how you stay overnight, the overnight section will be an over 18's event. We are staying at Travelodge Blackpool South Shore (by football stadium). You will need to book the rooms yourselves. Of course feel free to stay elsewhere, but a great aspect of these meets is spending the evenings together and being able to easily meet between activities. Plan at the moment (subject to change) Friday 20th - Arrive early evening, evening meal and drinks, visit the piers/coral island and more drinks. Saturday 21st - Full day at BPB, lunch approx 1pm. Evening meal and strolls down the promenade experiencing nightlife. Sunday 20th - Merlin attractions and/or Sandcastle Waterpark I can give my number to anyone attending and we will have a facebook messenger group going too. We aim to stay together as a group, going to and from each activity, enjoying getting to know people you share similar interests to. Whilst we can't force you to stay with the group it is the general purpose of the meets. The meets are fantastic and great fun and everyone is invited, even if you have never posted before or been to any meet. If it is your first meet, I understand it can be nerve breaking, I was only a newbie not too long ago! Please don't let this stop you from attending. Once you are there you'll be a part of the group in no time. Please PM me or post here to say if you're attending or just want some more details. If you are bringing a mate please also include who they are so they are not known as "plus 1". The events with TPM have all been fantastic and this one will be no different. Attending: Mattgwise Marc Mr Fish Martin Doyle Matt Creek Stuntman07 Mer Marlehorpe

    Vortex

    Also has a "please note: Vortex is currently closed" message on its ride page on the TP Website. Something TP rarely do. https://www.thorpepark.com/rides/vortex Haha - Look at the tab at top of page when you open the link > it calls the ride "Vortext"

    TPM Blackpool Weekend 20th - 22nd July 18

    We are definitely staying at Blackpool South Shore Travelodge (near football stadium) and some of us have already booked. Would be great to see some more of you on this trip.

    Living Nightmare Extreme - SPOILERS

    Slammer was a ride type that was discontinued by S&S, so parts for them became difficult to get and often had to be specially made meaning it would take months every time a new part was needed. This was quite expensive as well leading to it not being worth the hastle and money to keep repairing.

    Europa Park

    They have handled this situation so well and have worked tirelessly to get as much of the offering back to normal. They really should be commended for their efforts in this awful awful situation.

    Another MoS night, guess it makes sense if the park is going to be open till late for the MoS guests too. A good move.

    TPM Blackpool Weekend 20th - 22nd July 18

    Hotel Venue potentially changed. Looking likely to now be Travelodge Blackpool South Shore, with the aim of most attending so far booking this coming Thursday.

    TPM Blackpool Weekend 20th - 22nd July 18

    Really? I have just looked. There are still 5 double rooms, 3 twins and 7 single rooms.

    Europa Park

    Wow that is impressive, especially considering the entire depot area of the Monorail was caught up in the fire! Also a video from the Monorail (Credit: Europa-Park Photos FB page) showing the extent of damage. Must be the largest fire I have ever seen hit a park...

    They opened DBGT just a few minutes before close, so kudos to them.

    So it seems following what I believe was a successful late night opening this Saturday just gone they are opening again until 10pm this Saturday as well...

    The Walking Dead - The Ride: SPOILERS

    I thought it was great (much to Cooper's annoyance hehe) and in particular the pre and post ride sections. It has been cleverly thought out and I loved the darkness in places. The canteen section was fantastic as well with the live actors. A much better attraction than X!
