  1. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    Haha, nobody’s then haha
  2. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    Tbh, people staying at the hotels, should have been granted access on friday night, knowing that the threat to operations over the weekend from the weather.
  3. next big thing

    A bobsled coaster hybrid could be great for thorpe, it could push the limits of what a bobsled can do, whilst providing a fun thrill ride that can have a decent height restriction.

    Could you imagine a rollercoaster restaurant I'm the middle of the dome ???
  5. The Smiler

    Tbh the bag system is a shambles and holds up throughput at times on most rides. As good as the idea it is, It isnt cost effective with labour costs. I'm sure the park would be cheaper in the long run to add the mack storage systems. The new system seems worse as it will double the loading time and offers no security between trains unless they plan to add doors to the front like oblivion.

    Confirmed opening on the 17th people
  7. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    No that was a merlin typo, they missed the decimal place it should have read 1.1/10
  8. Duel!

    It does seem from these pics that the guns and targets are the same as before!
  9. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    It is far better than any merlin bag room !! And is a great concept, just a shame it telya on the park ticket
  10. Port Aventura

    Dragon kahn on a good day beats them both.... shambala lacked any force when I went last year. Red force is good but dont expect an amazing launch. As much as I enjoyed portaventura I wont be back in a hurry, you can tell the park is ex tussauds, from the management and fast pass organisation and honestly not many rides had the wow factor with many rough and dated rides.

    https://www.looopings.nl/weblog/9643/Journalist-in-elkaar-geslagen-omdat-hij-achtbaan-fotografeerde.html says allot about the construction of this coaster, no saftey harnessses ect and violence .... very professional!

    Rush had a pretty major problem last year, hence it started being stripped down before the end of the season.

    You also have to think those high investment periods were A) when the park was in rapid growth in attendance which has reached its new peak. The attractions were needed to give the park a name and grow admissions. B ) pre merlin, pre before everything must be a worlds first or gimmick to get off the table. C ) the uk part of the group has had a rough couple of years so dividends and investment slow. D the group focus on opening and purchasing new parks rather than look after what they have with quick bucks investment because the market research may have suggested a walking dead ride for 1m vs a woodie for 15m would have the bigger affect on return on investment and attendance. ultimately were left with brewers that can brew a beer in control!
  14. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    From the art this may have new trains, the style looks similar to thirteen from the artwork. As this is enclosed and the work has all taken place behind closed doors we cannot tell the extent of works that have taken place. A brake section could have been replaced with trick track ect or even retracking ect. the one thing I'm sure of its the only decent reide that thorpe had for younger guests. It will cause a number of complaints from people who have taken younger children on before. Its a complete u turn in the direction of Thorpe, wanting to accomodate family's and slap dash embarrassing investments.
