    2019 Season

    The timing of this suggests it's probably closer to have fallen down than been taken down! Why would they do it now, and with such temporary looking fencing looking so crap unless they really had to?

    Quantum is one of the best rides on the park, genuinely miss it when it's not there.
  3. Hello Fern! There's nothing wrong with going alone; I've done park on my own before now and have had a decent time. There can be advantages as you can just get on with doing exactly what you want rather than the faff of deciding what to do next, but I'd agree it's better to do it with others. We do have organised meets here on the forum which can be a great way to visit with others, they're great fun and everyone is welcome but it is a good idea to try to use the forums to get to 'know' a few people before hand. Hopefully we'll see you there!

    Selling things to commemorate attractions that the place could do really with now as they've mostly not been meaningfully replaced is a little saddening.

    Paultons Park

    Moved and rethemed magma? Moved and rethemed the other two junior drip towers they have? Or new drop towers? If nee will all the others remain? Paultons like their drop towers!
  6. This is excellent for the park, a bold and not cheep investment. Although I'm a little sad they've come away from knocking up rides in their shed. It's pretty imposing on the front, I don't know how their planning works and what boundaries they can reach before they require permission, but I'm surprised the council are happy with this. The park owners and the council are not exactly friends!

    Anyone know what is actually up with Monster Party for it to be so swiftly and lengthily down? Brand new madhouse and simple pre-show seems like something which shouldn't cause too many issues.
  8. It passed me by at the time, but that Fast and Furious thing a couple of posts back looks like absolute turd, doesn't it?
  9. What do you mean? In a theme park? Thorpe is on the flattest piece of flat land, there is no naturally moving water to harness for this. If you are considering something on the rapids, it'll always cost more energy to pump the water up than it will make processing it as it falls again. Otherwise you've solved the world's energy problems!
  10. Not sure why this is being discussed 9 months after it happened? Power cuts happen, not much anyone can do about it. 🤷‍♂️
  11. It's the footplate assembly you step on to get on the ride, and look like the wings of the plane. It's one long price which sticks out of each side of each two seat wide ride carriage, so quite a large bit to fling off. I wouldn't want it hitting me!
  12. Not something they've knocked up in their shed this time then.

    You sure? I can't believe people would be able to stick it out that long!! Every time they post there are just constant waves of negativity thrown back at them from nearly every responder. With the (lack of) direction of the park at the moment it's quite understandable, and they must realise they've missed the mark with the promotion of this year's offering but seem too far commited to it to change tack. It must be absolutely soul destroying.

    Just when I think I couldn't love the way they are going about this more. Little touches ❤️❤️
