  1. I visited DLP in 2000 and always wanted to go back - 23 years later and I’ve not yet returned. Other than that I went 11 years not visiting Thorpe Park - I had a pass in 2001/2002 and visited a fair amount then life happened. Back then I wasn’t a huge thrill seeker (Tidal Wave was my limit) but I was an enthusiast and followed the construction of Colossus then was too scared to ride it when it opened 🤣. Fast forward 11 years to 2013 and I revisited and finally put my big girl pants on (with the help of some awesome members on here) and beat my fear of heights and/or puking on some poor unsuspecting person sat next to me (god bless motion sickness meds)

    I’m actually kind of gutted about this - I love water rides and haven’t ridden Viking River Splash in years as it’s always been closed with the exception of 2021 where it had an absolutely massive queue (so I think that popularity isn’t necessarily an issue?). My only criticism of it is it can be incredibly rough and I wouldn’t feel comfortable taking a child on as it hits those side with such force at time that you really have to brace yourself.
  3. I’m quite partial to a bit of Rage (adventure island)
  4. Call me harsh but I think anyone caught doing this should be swiftly kicked out - it shows zero respect and makes the place look awful.
  5. I remember pre covid going on tiger rock with a friend who had to leave the station to go to the loo - it was a busy day with a queue of well over an hour - I assumed and had no issue sharing a boat with others but they just stuck me in one by myself which is ridiculous. I love Paultons Park and I hope it continues to excel as it has been doing in recent years but this country needs more competition when it comes down to theme parks. Merlin I feel are far too complacent because they have the monopoly and in turn it feels like they really don’t care if guests have an enjoyable day or not. It’s seems to be all about £££ It does seem at the moment that Chessington doesn’t have the best reputation in terms of ride availability and ride reliability - Jumanji area looks decent enough. The fact they have a soon to be opening B&M coaster (something I never thought I’d see) is brilliant but it’s not great if majority of the other big rides aren’t available. I only visited Chessington twice last year and the last visit was unbearable - one of the worst days I’ve had at a theme park (thankfully I was with a friend, her little boy and her partner so the company was fab). Hopefully things will improve but only time will tell
  6. It’s late and I’m waiting for my meds to kick in so I had a gander - I don’t use tik tok or Snapchat and had no idea who she is. Apparently she’s a 15 year old YouTuber/Tik tok thingy thing - loads of followers, don’t know why - seems you can get famous from not doing a whole lot these days. Wow I sound like a miserable old cow 🤣
  7. *New for 2023* Rollback reimagined
  8. In general I would say the offering by Merlin for dark rides isn’t great but I LOVE Hex. Also really like Flight of The Sky Lion and Bubbleworks (not so keen on Gruffalo). I wish there were more dark rides to chose from - something like Symbolica at Efteling would be pretty cool to have
  9. I’ve only just seen this! Reminds me a bit of my younger sister who considers the flying jumbos something of a breakthrough for her personally. I took her to Chessie 3 years ago with my nephews and she wouldn’t even go on Scorpion express or the log flume. My niece and I went on Rameses and my sister looked genuinely concerned 🤣🤣. Also I’m creasing at the term “digestive evacuation” - brilliant! Speaking of stealth, my younger sister had a job that she had to drive sort of near to Thorpe and asked if I’d ever done “that big white tall arch thing”
  10. Have a fab meet everyone! If it wasn’t for the heat I would have loved to have joined but alas, I can’t function in this weather
  11. If you are timed out for an hour you can still use main queues in between - for example if you are timed out for 60mins and another ride only has a short wait then you can use the main queue on that ride before using your ride access pass again. You can use your ride access once the time out has passed to go to the next ride using the pass. Hopefully that makes sense
  12. It really is grim and needs some TLC. The graffiti aswell is disgusting - I saw one a couple a months ago with a phone number and to call for sex?! It was there on my following visit a few weeks later. I haven’t been to Thorpe since May and I’ve developed a strong disliking of the place - the word skanky seems too nice to describe it
  13. I would be up for a catch up - you free before 22nd July at all? It’s been ages since I last saw you
  14. You really haven’t missed out with Storm Surge - it’s pretty naff, your feet get absolutely drenched, it takes forever to get to the top - and then you end up bobbing around at the end for what seems like an eternity!
