  1. I'm just glad they're getting something new, whatever it may be :)All they need to do now is bring back the backwards cycle on Galaxia and it'll be a party!
  2. In the six years it was there I rode it twice, and both times it tried (almost successfully) to neuter me.I'm not going to miss it. I'd love a Move-It though, I always enjoy those!

    think this is the most I've ever enjoyed a Gossip song. It's so pretty.
  4. It's taken me about three years to realise how out of place Saw looks at Thorpe. It's quite an embarrassment really. If I was in charge, I'd tear the thing apart, scatter a few remains around The Swarm area and build that woodie!!!
  5. The text bouncing around looks very cheap and tacky. But apart from that it's quite good... Exactly the sort of thing I expected.I have no idea when my first trip to Thorpe will be this year, but these adverts have got me very excited!

    Get little belts of hysteria every time I listen to this song, a sign of good music.

    Your Thorpe Park

    2012:. Swarm opens, obviously.. Storm Surge “mysteriously perishes” in a fire mid-season that also wipes out X:/NWO and The Arena. Not naming any names but a headless monk has been seen sneaking around in the area.. During the closed season Neptune’s Beach is torn down.2013:. Neptune’s Beach & Storm Surge area tuned into family-orientated pirate themed land with various “Family” rides and a Sea-Life Centre built slightly underground with a grassy area to sit on above, it will be themed around Smugglers who sell rare exotic fish or something along those lines.. An indoor Top Spin opens in the place of X, similar to Talocan but themed to pirates and treasure and getting trapped by some sort of curse that happens to invert and drench you for no apparent reason.. A family coaster of some sort in the place of The Arena that stretches over to Fungle’s Safari. A spinner or Vekoma Mine-Train.2014:. The Time Voyagers building becomes home to a new motion simulator, themed around an alien invasion in Amity.. The Dome & Entrance bought up to date, The Dome will have a glass roof on one side giving a nice view of the park as you enter it and The Entrance will pretty much be the same… just more “modern”. Also one of those massive tower things in the middle of the dome, giving views of the park and surrounding lakes from hundreds of feet up.. Rumba Rapids themed more like Inferno, with rocks, palm trees, mist effects, sand around the area giving it a “desert island” feel and most importantly less offensive to the eye colours.. Repaints for Colossus, Inferno, Slammer, Samurai & Zodiac. 2015:. B&M Flyer opens on the island behind Swarm, with a big fat sexy pretzel loop. No idea what it would be themed to. I know it’s unoriginal but maybe the whole medieval/oh no I’m riding a dragon thing could work.. Vortex dies, replaced by another grassy area to sit and relax.. Giant Huss Frisbee opens on the new island, as well as a more family orientated but still quite thrilling flat.. This is where I got bored of doing this.
  8. I so wish I could make this, but looking at my dates for my trips to hospital I have my treatment the week after meaning I'll probably be too weak by then :(Gutted!
  9. It's nice paving, The Swarm clearly have taste for sparing it. Honestly, next people will be moaning that the weather's not post apocalyptic enough for them.
  10. Meh, I'm just gonna queue. It's not just the conversation thing (And for the record my social skills are fine )... If I go to Thorpe/Alton/Wherever with a group of friends I want to stay in that group, not be separated for the whole day. I used to be able to do that, and I don't get what's so unreasonable about wanting that. Sorry legs
  11. No just me and a friend, and my brother and his girlfriend queued. We tried the whole "one person on a ride with me" thing but they got bored quickly waiting around so we split up. My disability makes standing for long periods of time hard for me, and by the end of the day I would be completely shattered and would take me a day or two to recover, something I'd rather avoid. I'm willing to do this so that I can visit Thorpe with more than one person, as eventually the conversation dries up and the only words that you speak are "What shall we go on next" - "Don't mind". I am grateful for the whole exit pass thing, I know they don't have to do it. I just think changing the policy to only allowing one person on a ride with me pointless.
  12. Last time I went to Thorpe (May... I think) We got turned down and we had to split our group into two. It sucks. I'm actually considering spiting my health at some point this year and just queueing, just so that I can have a nice day out with my friends.
  13. I know I'm in a minority here, but I think this is genius.If any of my friends do bring this up, I'm not going to tell them it isn't true. Because they'll s*** themselves the first time they ride. Oh... wait, I'll only get to ride with one friend due to Thorpe's stupid disabled policy only letting me take one person on a ride (Which means visiting with just one person, too)
  14. The park to be closed to the public on the 11th June for my birthday so that me, my friends and family can have the park to ourselves :PEvery year.
  15. Speed, Floaty, Speed, Floaty :wub:I'm in love. Roll on my first trip of the year, whenever it may be.

    I'm loving Timeline.Mainly because I'm quite vein, the big picture at the top of my profile is fun for me to look at.

    don't like most of these songs, and this video makes me worried about the state of chart music. But it's rather addictive!

    I need to give up eBay.I told my friend Sharon I'd buy her a Bast Taste Bear for Christmas, I end up bidding on a few when I find out they're going cheap. I get outbid and get a little competitive. Next thing I know I'm the proud temporary owner of 6 Bad Taste Bears. Ergh, I need to sort my life out.

    Music

    The Garden Rules by Snow Patrol is literally, amazing.It almost makes up for the fact they haven't released a good album since Final Straw. I'd post a You Tube link but none of them are working for me, Copyright? You'll all have to take my word for it.
  22. Like I said before, I'm just hoping there will be disabled access to both sides... Otherwise I may have to spite my legs and queue for 'the other side'.
  23. If it was me in charge, I'd have on-ride audio with whatever noise "The Swarm" make when they're swarming about (Maybe some sort of distorted buzzing, with sounds of being shot at and engines failing and starting again as you glide through the elements... Maybe the sound of crashing as you enter the brake-run)And then just, simple, eerie music played throughout the island.
  24. Oh yeah, Storm Surge happened. I almost completely forgot. Literally.
