    Hocus Pocus Hall

    You’re probably right. I went on the first weekend in March but Transylvania wasn’t open - it still looked like a building site. My friends and I saw The Vampire in testing though which was exciting! We went back for my birthday in April and Transylvania was open and The Vampire was running but Prof Burp’s still wasn’t. Then back again for May bank holiday and finally Prof Burp’s was open (with ALL the glorious animatronics & effects working...not forgetting that delicious smell). It immediately became my favourite ride ever - and still remains so to this day.

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    Indeed - opened April 1990 along with Professor Burp’s.

    The 90s were nearer 30 years ago. For example the Vampire is 28.

    Rumba Rapids

    All that’s needed are those random squirters back in action & we’re almost there! And also, rename it back to Thunder River, a much, much better name.

    2017 Season General Discussion

    Went along today expecting it to be quiet since the schools have gone back, but it was much busier than I expected and operations were quite poor throughout. In order of riding (or attempting to ride): SAW - running well, four trains (I think) Samurai - not open until 12pm Colossus - running on only one train all day, queues 45 mins. Rush - closed all day Vortex - running well Stealth - didn't open until around 1:30pm and on only one train all day, queues 45 mins Nemesis Inferno - running on only one train all day, queues 45 mins. Rumba Rapids - now officially closed until 2018 Storm Surge - [why did I bother?] Ghost Train - queue advertised as 45 mins but took just over an hour. Not sure of how many running (how many are there?) - anyway, my first time and I loved it! SWARM - running on only one train all day, queues 45 mins. X - running on two trains but zero queue - where's the logic? Really quite disappointed. Could have fitted in much more if more trains were running on their coasters - so frustrating. And not forgetting the new ridiculous 4pm closing!

    Can you explain what you mean? What did they do to TMOHPH? Cheers
  9. Has anyone been on this recently? Have there been any further changes? Are the FX/smell pods still working? I've still yet to ride and am looking forward to seeing what they've come up with.

    The ride's so old the cameras probably don't work.
  11. Yes, because, let's face it, Zufari's pants.

    There has been ONE restoration exception: Hex. But so far only one. If they can restore that why not Vampire? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
