    Fear on a Ride

    Yeah, Thorpe is notorious for undesirable characters, it's appalling that they seem to accept such a poor standard of behaviour when it ruins the experience for the majority of guests.

    When I worked on rides it was standard procedure that it had to be fully locked off and clear of guests before you even think of entering a ride area. Tragic news.

    No no no, that's why they're losing customers!

    The park hasn't felt any busier than last year for me, and Icon was virtually walk-on all day on Sunday on 2 trains... it has a good throughput, but something's not right if your new 16 million pound coaster can't attract a queue.

    Yeah, this one; https://youtu.be/PK_yVGW1BHY I think the new one is much improved as it actually shows the product as well as people (adding the human element is always a good thing in theme park ads IMO), still isn't perfect as it feels a bit "cut and paste" but much better than the first version despite the interesting visuals it had.

    It was painfully slow last Sunday with VR working, only two trains (one station) running and stacking for 5 minutes each time. It's shocking when they allow fads like VR to impact on the efficient operation of the ride, needs to go ASAP! Also it broke down twice but so did Rita.

    This is very exciting, wonder if it'll be like the 90s PB series - "get the damn thing open!"

    Tidal Wave

    That's a shame considering they were fully restored either last year or the one before

    Has Thorpe always had this many closed days scheduled for October?

    Tidal Wave

    Am I correct in thinking the water effects in the queueline are broken/off again, despite having been fixed a few years back?

    I wonder what's wrong with Saw Alive for it to still be down?

    Annual Pass Price

    I completely agree. However, if you've waited a long time for a ride only to be turned away, some compensation should be offered for the lost time.

    Car parking reached £18 today I believe (though I have heard that it was £20 earlier on).
