  1. In my opinion Fright nights needs a rebrand. Seeing to many posts on that MAP group about how their kids were scared and how to put up a cross to not be interacted with. For me seeing families / kids running around is a complete atmosphere killer as how the hell can this be scary. I think theres only one way to do it, and I don't see it happening. Close the park at 4 and have an event going from 5 til 11, 13+ only and no ways of preventing a scare.
  2. Went to fun nights. It was fun not scary. My first interaction with the crows was them filming a ticktok over at Amity high, fun, not scary, might take the kid next time.
  3. Did you go in the maze last year? It was literally just fumes, from the moment you walked in to exit. Perhaps complain to the park if you have an issue with the mazes not opening due to ventilation problems.
  4. https://parksscaresandglitter.blog/2020/10/19/yesterday-at-thorpe-park/ By far the best response I have seen, and I guess these vloggers, who probably took that pic are immune from the rule of 6. Either way if I saw the park as busy as that within that area I would probably just move on and avoid the area and perhaps find a quieter more chilled area. Or in the case of most of these Vloggers, I would just call it quits and head back next week on a quieter day rather than complaining on twitter in seek of vlogger credibility and an invite to next years press event.
  5. It's a real shame. Capacities are set so the online booking system can't be 'oversold' as such. However you would have thought lessons would have be learnt by previous years. Perhaps police are required to patrol the entrances to Monks for example if that were the case.
  6. Have a new coaster coming in 2023.
  7. Yet Luna cinema can run films with a start time of 9.45pm, makes no sense.
  8. From looking at the videos here's my takeaways, I will probably go at some point this weekend. The event looks really good in terms of scarezones and entertainment, I think Thorpe will continue the maze payment model from now on as theoretically queues should be lower whilst there is still enough entertainment on park so that you know you are at Fright nights rather than just being at a park with mazes generating less complaints of log queues for average attractions. My only issue is what is the point of having as enthusiasts and Thorpe alike call it a 'VIP& Press Night
  9. Think I'm going to take some time off this forum. Just seems like a place full of negativity. Trying to keep to a positive mindset currently.
  10. Perhaps its just park of a longer term project like what as been done with the dome / megastore. It has to be stripped at some point, perhaps it could of waited til the off season but personally it has no impact to my day so I don't care and look forward to the redevelopment.
  11. Remember the park is still on skeleton staff, office job side. Besides I would be confident in saying with potential capacity numbers you won't be waiting very long for rides at all.
  12. The Creators of the Crystal Maze Experience are launching a new attraction for 2021, based on Judge Dredd. Concept art here: https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/attractions/crystal-maze-creators-launch-judge-dredd-live-game-a4484161.html Website here: https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/attractions/crystal-maze-creators-launch-judge-dredd-live-game-a4484161.html Looks very immersive.. @JoshC. - Please move if better suited to a different thread.
  13. Looks cool, one of these would be good at LLW. Just ashame it lacks a water splash.
  14. Indeed, any kid would appreciate this and wouldn't say, I can see a shed, that spoils it for me.... I think enthusiasts have a silly opinion of everything has to be Disney standard or else its just rubbish even if it's a quality attraction. It really does spoil the day for me when people going on the ride for the 3000th time like to point out the black wall or un-themed roof when I just want to be immersed in what the ride already gives.
  15. Merlin attractions are good to go with certification from the tourist board! I assume Blackpool will follow in the next few days if there operations are u to scratch. I believe some Merlin Midways are now set to open on the 4th, Manchester for example. The London attractions, Merlin's money maker are awaiting for London and tourism to reopen and will be the last of the UK's attractions to open. Also its the thought that counts....................
  16. I think Disney are invested in Florida, they have a contract with the NBA to fulfill and the resort openings seem to be practicing social distancing. Not that I agree with this as everyone from Nebraska to Miami will be bringing the virus down with them for their family vacation.
  17. Gives my the sense of actor interactions around the park, no mazes rather experiences and zones, with no area of limits, type of thing.
  18. Kellogs voucher? 19.50 +the 2.99 for the box of Frosties sounds like good value to me
  19. In all seriousness when will this park be converted into a Thomas land + Zoo.
  20. Share the fun, much cheaper or perhaps pay the £20 more and have endless fun at the resort!
  21. Probably produced in a way too to add a bit of drama to the video in the hopes of it going viral
  22. All sold out? So there must be demand at this new pricepoint. plus its still cheaper than walkup and can be booked on the day. I really don't understand why MAP holders find the need to complain about a normal ticket price raise. If anything wouldn't that mean less people in park. Besides you have multiple options, share the fun for £15 being one, buy one get one free another........ so in all lots of options so that you don't have to pay full price. In terms of gigs yes, gigs do vary in price, I genrally go for the £15 ticket price point on a weekly basis, however if we say a stad
  23. Debatable, perhaps the are driving you to buy a season pass, and how to these compare in value to the likes of Paultons and Blackpool? Yes a dayticket price is high but realistically I wonder what % of the market buys these. Plus £39 seems to be good value you too when something like a gig can now cost upwards of £80 for a ticket.
  24. You should get Merlin to hire you and play the organ all day in the Vampire station @Matt Creek, now that would be immersive.
