    MattyMoo got a reaction from Ivsetti in 2020 Season   
    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.

    Perfect valentines day purchase to enhance any date night atmosphere 🤣💘
    I can't think of anything worse than having your house smelling like "blood, rusty metal and raw flesh", Surely the only people buying these are people using them for commercial use (horror events..?)

    Gotta laugh at the eNThuSiAstS losing their shiz over the AromaPrime tweet t'other day and then it ends up being a massive let down, obvs.
     
    I'm sure being able to make your humble abode smell like a horror maze is 100% what the general public want from Thorpe as new for 2020.

    For those unaware of the reference:
    Wikipedia:
    Chiapas is a southern Mexican state bordering Guatemala. Its mountainous highlands and dense rainforest are dotted with Mayan archaeological sites and Spanish colonial towns.

    Me either. Fond memories of sitting down with the missus each week last closed season to watch the updates, our floating DBGT train carriage in the background, wearing our Smiler onesies, drinking from our oversized Colossus cups and tucking into our back up closed-season stock of non-branded overpriced pick and mix from The Dome, our necks laden down by our MAP lanyard encrusted in numerous pop badges we stole from small children and staff members.
     
    Still haven't opened the Stealth condoms though.
