    Only done 2 trips to Thorpe this year and not managed to get on Samurai yet - would have done on last visit but it looked like it was whipping everyone around and I didn’t fancy up-chucking my lunch
  2. I was quite surprised that they have suspended sales of MAPs. Yes the current MAPs are great value when you look at the attractions that you can access, free parking, 20% discount etc (with premium). I hope they don’t bring out a ton of options because I am incapable of making decisions 😂. I could potentially see them dividing the passes to southern/northern attractions possibly. Years ago (2002) when the parks were owned by Tussauds I had an off peak 2 park pass (for Chessie and Thorpe) - still have it somewhere 👀. It was £35 at the time and obviously only for use on off peak days but it
  3. This happened a couple of times yesterday - the train was getting round that final bend in record time which I didn’t notice at first - do you like the German audio on Stealth? I love it 🤣. We got on Stealth 4 times yesterday which was fab!
  4. Just remembered getting stuck in the tunnel just before entering the station in Wickerman - my niece was panicking a little bit but luckily it wasn’t too long. From what I can assume it was a guest action as the train in front was sent fully loaded and there was security at the exit to the ride.
  5. A couple of these I find terrifying - Detonator - I’ve only ridden it 3 times and can’t bring myself to go on it again but getting stuck up there - just 😱😱. I always dread getting stuck or delayed on The Swarms break run - I really struggle with The Swarm these days - it’s the only ride that seriously affects my breathing and by the time I’ve hit the break run the damn vest restraint is so tight. I don’t have any exciting tales - got stuck on Rumba a few years back when all the boats gathered at the bottom of the conveyor lift at the end. I was with someone who worked
  6. I thought the exact same thing about Adventureville - weirdly reminds me of the bubbleworks. Ive not visited adventure island since 2017 and gutted about over the hill - I genuinely enjoyed that ride. Axis looks interesting - is it very intense? I wasn’t a huge fan of Scorpion so not really fussed that it has gone and the last time I rode Dragons Claw I had to go to the toilet to be sick 🤢 . As for Time Machine - did it once - never again 😱 - horrific thing! Great review - was hoping to take my nephews there but I think it’s best to stay away after what yo
  7. Wow - that doesn’t look v healthy!
  8. None of the effects were working today either. Um this might sound a bit odd but I had a weird moment on swarm where I momentarily went floppy for a few seconds halfway through the ride - anyone else had that happen? I’ve had a couple of occasions where I’ve for a split second lost my vision but I’ve never just flopped about 🤨
  9. 💓💓💓

  10. I still to this day don’t know how I didn’t throw up on XNWO - this was many years before I discovered motion sickness tablets. At least you boffed in the corridor and not on some unsuspecting fellow rider 🤣
  11. I’ve read about and seen a fair few vids on that place. The guy that runs it surely has to be some sort of sadist? There’s a huge waiting list for it and I question why anyone would want to experience what looks like torture 😮
  12. Have you ridden the coaster in any of its formats? I’ve ridden it as XNWO just the once because - motion sickness and rode it as X and TWD many times.
  13. As much as most of us are critical of Merlin, this is really nice to read - nice one Thorpe 👌
  14. My older sister works in retail and someone went into where she works, purchased whatever and then declared she was off home to self isolate as her husband has been tested positive - it’s idiots like that with zero respect or care for others that are making this situation far worse. If the parks open on Saturday I’ll eat both my cats - I mean, that may happen anyway thanks to the selfish gits striping supermarkets bare. Times like this I’m ashamed of how humans behave - pure greed and lack of consideration for others
  15. I think Merlin will only close the UK parks if they are told they have to - would be surprised if they did it voluntarily though I’d be happy to be proved wrong
  16. On more than one occasion (guessing must happen a lot during busy times) they’ve filled the Vampire with RAP users/carers - dread to think what would happen if an evac was needed
  17. Just read that Disneyland Paris will be closing 15th March until the end of the month.
  18. Absolutely agree with you (especially the bit about sink fast tracks - don’t give them ideas!). Thing is I, and probably most people inadvertently touch their face without even realising it - also the bogs at Chessie are bloody disgusting at the best of times - there are certain ones I just won’t venture into because they are that bad. Just thinking about queuing to get to the sinks kind of makes my stomach turn a little
  19. Since the coronavirus numbers have gone up in the country it is something that has concerned me - I have health anxiety on top of crippling anxiety and I should keep away from reading click bait scare mongering articles. However, it is something none of us can ignore especially at the stage it’s at now. I have tickets to preview day at Chessington and am possibly not going to go now. I know it’s possible to catch it anywhere (had a woman sat next to me coughing away happily in the docs waiting room without covering her mouth). My main point of concern is that at parks you have n
  20. I’d buy a Saw Alive smelly thing - always loved the smell of it in there - reminded me of bacon 😂
  21. Jeez this has spiralled a bit. Whilst it’s not ideal to cut yourself at a theme park and for me it did hurt a fair bit, not once did I think “oh I’ll pop into guest services and make a complaint” - at the end of the day, the medic cleaned up the cut and said she would flag it up so hopefully someone had a look in that tunnel. Accidents happen and yeah it’s not fun to walk around with blood on your trousers, it’s not like my leg was hanging off. There are many ways that guests can injure themselves at a theme park - mostly due to the guests pratting about. That said when you are follo
  22. It’s not conked out.....yet
  23. That is pretty much what happened to my leg - I’ll insert a pic but apologies as my legs are awful. With me it hurt as soon as I felt something hit it but I didn’t think it was that bad until exiting the maze - at that point my leg felt wet and the blood was coming through my (thankfully black) trousers. I had some plasters on me as I tend to carry plasters/headache tablets and various stuff with me to cover nearly all eventualities but was worried about it getting infected so I went to the medical centre who were fab and cleaned it up and whacked a decent sized plaster on it - I told the la
