    2020 Season

    I visited today and on the whole it was a positive experience. Entering the park was seamless and well organised with a temperature check taken before entering the bag drop area. It was fairly quiet being midweek & term time. Two staff members were situated at the entrance of the dome reminding guests to wear their face covering before entering. In the queue lines the vast majority of people were abiding by the social distancing floor markers and frequent Covid related announcements were made on most rides. As for park operations they were a bit hit and miss as ex

    2020 Season

    You might be right Josh. I thought by lowering the rate Thorpe could offer a reduced ticket price at no extra cost to them and sell more tickets as a result. From doing some research it looks like a mixed bag, some companies have passed the saving on and others won't be or are yet to decide.

    2020 Season

    Now the VAT rate for UK theme parks has been cut from 20% to 5% I would have thought the £39 day price should have been reduced to reflect the change. It can only be assumed that this is a profiteering technique by Merlin.
  4. Rode this three times on Sunday, front, middle, and second to last row. Didn't find it as thrilling as it was at the end of last season. Is it possible to not have as much zip around the track early on in the season maybe...

    Station and outside queue, one is 'Welcome to X a journey of light and sound' and the other is a more lengthy safety related announcment.
  6. That does makes sense, don't really see why Stealth has a spare and the other coasters don't but then again I'm not an engineer.
  7. Stealth was having big problems with the traction wheels as someone has already mentioned, the train kept getting stuck coming into the unload platform. One train operation using train one then this was taken off and replaced with the re painted train two but the same problem persisted. I think I saw train three out as well in the morning so they all got a run out today!

    Oh okay thanks for that, a couple of new voice announments been put in for 2016 see how long they last!

    Guru Josh Project - Infinity (2008) I think that's the one mate! Noticed this ride was just using trains 1 and 4 today. Am I right in thinking this still has/can operate with five trains at once?
  10. Okay thank you, the records that they have of me working their, will they be that I just worked during the 2010 season or that I only worked a couple of months? I ask this because there is a question that says why I left. Sorry I know its a more detailed question but I need to get It right for when the 2013 season application comes out.
  11. Okay thank you, so when they see my application for 2013 theres know way they can tell if I have worked at or applied for Thorpe before?
  12. Hi guys new to the forum, I worked at Thorpe Park from March to June 2010 but I didn't pass my probation, I was F & B and only worked in that department because I wasn't old enough to work on rides at the time (16) but I really want to return for the 2013 season but would I still be on their records? I applied for the 2011 season and admitted on the application to not passing my probation and understandably didn't get an interview so I want to know if I can get away with saying I have never worked their before or saying I stayed for the whole season and left at the end of my contract.
