  1. The theme will 100% be something that is rundown, old and rotting. Anything that the park doesn't need to actively maintain. That's all Merlin comes up with when it comes to themes. Just look at World of Jumanji, they can literally let it overgrow naturally, and it will be completely on brand.
  2. Now if they could do this for all the other shipping containers *ahem* shark cabins *ahem*, then they might actually be starting to make progress
  3. It's been confirmed that it's being ripped out
  4. They've literally had 6 years to make it work, if they haven't achieved it in that time, they never will. Everyone knows by now to go in with extremely low expectations, then you wont be disappointed when it turns out to be a shambles.
  5. I'm sorry, it doesn't do anything. You can see that. It will be shiz
  6. I thought they did away with brave it backwards following The Smiler....
  7. That, has to be a mistake. All things related to the Derren IP have been ripped out.
  8. SBNO is a Thorpe Park favourite, they love those. If that happens, all they'll do is what they've done here and replace the sign and pretend it never existed 👀
  9. They just simply can't be bothered, and that means they can just theme anything to whatever without any care or reason. Exodus will be a rundown theme, which they will not have to maintain for the next 30 years, 100000% guaranteed Second only to Disney.
  10. It's Merlin, it's definitely poor, as you'll have a billion responsibilities, and unfair expectations probably
  11. Actually when it first opened it was quite heavily themed (definitely not as much as originally planned), but they have failed to maintain it over the years. Thus, it has more or less faded away, but it's there if you know what to look for.
  12. That's never coming back, as the hardware has been ripped out! Has been for the past 2 years at least, I believe
  13. They'll most likely use the space as a new FN maze and market it as the worlds first scare maze with a "ride" half way through. Perhaps a year round scare maze, Saw Alive 2.0 anyone?
  14. Sorry but that is just downright ridiculous, please elaborate. It's the biggest eyesore
  15. Saw: The Ride is not actually as bad as everyone makes out, but it is too short. People just want something to hate on
  16. The LED Mask was used on Sunday when I visited, luck of the draw I guess Wouldn't be surprised if it's cut, like many other things, that's always the way
  17. The actual, real and honest review Survival Games They're chatting **** when they say this is the biggest investment to date. It's just a dome with plain black walls. Where did the money go!? It was fun, I enjoyed free-flow concept again, and being split from the group is always unnerving for me. Being split is the only reason I would still have any sense of 'fear' when going round again. So much wasted potential here though, the story is barely told. Trailers Same as last year, not scary in the slightest, predictable, needs more actors, or to be demolished/replaced all together. Also people need to stop blaming actor shortages on breaks etc, the experience should be consistent no matter what time of day you do it, this applies to any scare maze/attraction. Creak Freak Again, nothing changed apart from mention of Exodus. Distinct lack of chainsaws, also needs more actors. Deaths Doors My god, what a load of absolute dog****, this is up there as one of the biggest jokes the park has ever installed. It's so rubbish all you can do is laugh. Sorry but it's true, anyone that says anything otherwise is lying to you. Lets take this for what it really is, knocking on some cheap wood and getting the worlds worst actors to do the famous merlin pig snort. An absolute embarrassment. The Terminal It's a thing. I think it was overhyped by enthusiasts because they creamed themselves when they saw Darkfield. It's just recycled shipping containers, and noise cancelling headphones. Oh and a single thump at the start. How Thorpe have the audacity to make this an upcharge is frankly nothing short of ballsy. It's not worth it at all. The Crows Why does this exist? Nobody knows. Regardless of time of day you do this, I just personally do not find this scary or creepy at all. There is a story that is being told on the PA system and by an actor simultaneously, but of course they aren't saying the same thing so it's all just a bit of a mess. Birthday Bash Didn't see it, cant comment. I imagine not much has changed. Legacy A somewhat improvement over last year. They moved the screen from the dome and relied too much on it. Nice visuals. Not enough effects. Fire goes off about twice, probably dont have the budget for anymore gas canisters. Will never be on the same level as Wastelands, so they should try their own idea instead. Amityhigh/Lycanthorpe Thank God this is going. Roaming Actors There was none unless they were walking between the dome and their respective maze/zone. Creak Freaks Unchained non-existent, area is a ghost town. Dont look behind the heras fencing its depressing. Unfortunately Fright Nights seems to take two steps forward and one step back every year. Audio around the park is a mess, lets be honest, it's never going to be fixed, they've been trying for over a decade. There is absolutely zero atmosphere on park, it baffles me how other places in the UK with less budget can put on a proper halloween event with incredible scares, atmosphere and concepts. But a multi million pound park gets it wrong YoY. Such a shame because I used to absolutely love Fright Nights, now it's just an annual tick in the box. Overal Rating: 3/10
  18. It's worth noting also, that the fire effect has been removed from the fire truck
  19. Okay, so, we're never bringing it back. But we are.
  20. Absolutely no way they would know how to operate something like that, they can barely run Fins Infinity 360 Grill
  21. The first person to even ask/suggest it's coming back, is getting permanently banned.
  22. I don't understand how this won, it was some hay bales, some lightbulbs and about 3 actors. It was sh*t
