    MattyMoo got a reaction from Martin Doyle in New for 2021 - Black Mirror Labyrinth   
    I doubt Thorpe Park even know that themselves yet, considering that all of a sudden at 9am it was "announcement coming at 10am" from nowhere, with no cohesion to any of the previous tHoRpePaRk posts.
     
    My prediction is incedibly long queues due to low throughput, and guests coming off afterwards saying was that it/it's not worth the queue/head straight to guestservices and complain for some fastpasses.
     
    Good to see Thorpe going back to their favourite theme of dark and apocalyptic though.

    If it were The Goblin King, Sarah, Hoggle, Ludo and Sir Didimus I'd have been interested.

    I can' tell you how much enjoyment I get from people moaning at Chessington for not having enough rides open or being really busy when the February half term event is called

    This comes from a fun feature Towers have on their website: https://www.altontowers.com/40-years/model-my-map/
     
    It's clearly a bit of silly fun, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of the questions have been designed to get some insight into what people want (especially the non-ride stuff).
     
    I'm a big fan of everything Towers are doing right now for their 40th. A solid plan has been laid out, and I really hope they follow through with it. 
     
    And, forgive me for making the obvious comparison, this is how you do it Thorpe. On top of a proper new addition, proper events all throughout the year, which are all varied and have a clear identity, whilst linking it back to the overarching theme of being the 40th anniversary.

    Oktoberfest means good beer. If they have good beer then excellent, but they won't, will they?

    I think they underestimate Paulton's Park too - wouldn't surprise me if they already have plans for some more "thrill" rides to add to the mix.

    If Thorpe don't have a 5 year plan, they aren't going to tell you, and will tell you they do have one.
     
    If they do have a 5 year plan, they aren't going to tell you what it is.
     
    If social media is to be believed, the idea of charging your phone by screaming on TWD The Ride was definitely not just a one off PR stunt and was of course a trial that definitely didn't just happen to last the night of the press launch and then never be seen again.

    Just taken a glance at the comments on Thorpe's recent 2020 social media posts. So much hate, and that isn't just from hard to please can't win enthusiasts. 
     
    All the general public want is a new - not rehashed - coaster. The general public are now as tired of Thorpe's PR and false hope as RMC thirsty enthusiasts were 5 years ago. If 2019 was a tough year for gate figures, then 2020 is going to be even tougher. 
     
    People don't want "experiences".
    People don't want actor led attractions all year round.
    People don't want a tent with old consoles in.
    People don't want upcharge attractions that add to the entrance price.
    People probably do want to leave the car park in a timely fashion. #NewFor2020
    People. Want. A. Big. Massive. Themed. Tangible. VR Free. Coaster.... And wanting that after eight years isn't too much to ask.
     
    If Alton get another "next big thing" before Thorpe does then it's clear where Merlin's priorities lie. But still, it's great to go to a park and see an SBNO sky swat, log flume and scare maze - right lads?
     
    PS. Thank goodness for Stealth.
