  1. I mean London Resort is never going to happen. So that point is laughable moot.
  2. This is usually the case every year. Add in the Twitter toxicity and lack of any grey area these days and it's ridiculous.

    My thought is that a lot of the scenery will be old and with low upkeep so lots will be heading to the local tip. They'll likely need a bigger skip.
  4. Why are people obsessed with this Emily Alton thing like she was ever anything more than a queueline gag? Merlin haven't got the best track record in refurbishments, but setting the expectations to some weird story that never existed because of a pun (repossessed clearly referencing to ghosts in general) is going to result in some disappointment when it's not THEIR vision when it opens. Original didn't have a storyline, I doubt the refurb will have much of one. And if it does it'll no doubt feel forced in by a hammer (much like the attempts of adding 'story' to Tomb Blaster). Much like with most of these ideas, the park are far better off redesigning from the ground up rather than attempting some weird nostalgia attempt with modern stuff.
  5. You knew it would be a disaster when instant it opened Derren Brown did zero marketing stuff regarding it. Still not done it. Don't really care about it. It's not getting me to visit Thorpe and even if I did visit would I waste time on it? Just bin it. Even an empty building would presumably get better KPI scores.
  6. Chiapas > Valhalla Maybe an indoor area with a combination of attractions wouldn't go amiss. Kill off many birds with one stone and get one of those Mack Suspended Coasters and a Flume system. Would be a shame to waste it on a Flying Theatre.
  7. Maybe they should take the hint and use a better designed tall boi instead?
  8. Yes. Because you're no longer a mod the whole place is a nightmare. Just wait until construction and we have daily updates from Monk's Walk showing how one pile of dirt has moved 2m.

    Polyfilla. And lots of it.
  11. Scorpion Express is more likely to reopen this year than Enterprise is. Could simply be a continuation of the difficulty to source parts from abroad. Unfortunately there's no Chessie insiders these days compared to when half the forum seemed to work there to actually answer the question.
  12. I honestly don't think I could live in the surrounding area (a uni friend does these days), the amount of traffic over the peak season would affectively control your spare time and considering how bad the access to the park actually is to boot. Most of the neighbours have probably lived there since before it became a proper theme park. Got to play nicely otherwise it makes any future developments even harder to push through.

    I'm sure it'll go well with the return of Terror Tomb next year. Maybe they'll bring Toyland Tours back too.
  14. Can a family coaster have a 1.4m height limit? Certainly not one that needs to take off the strain on Vampire and Fury. That enthusiasts are desperately clinging on to the #WordsofWardley shows the worrying lack of excitement this ride is giving. It's a B&M and I honestly cannot really be bothered to plan a trip down next year with any urgency (though that might well be down to personal reasons more than anything).

    Soundtrack by PVRIS confirmed. It's for the best if we're honest. Hopefully they give whatever replaces it a suitable budget and becomes a far better attraction (not that its difficult mind, even if I have a soft spot for Duel).
