  1. Double post... Done Vulcan Again and wow. That second half is great Imo. First half still the bag on your head with some small jumps from a few actors. But at the area with holes in the wall you take off your bag. And the second half is great. New flaps and sections to the maze. About 5 or 6 actors with really good scares. 7.5/10 Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Vulcan Peak has been updated. And safe to say it's now my second favorite maze at the park. New second half was really really good with some great scares! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Anyone done that Fanta thing? Actually looks decent from the outside but have no idea what it actually is Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. The event has potential... Considering it was only a preview tonight there was some positives to take. Roaming actors, especially the clowns tonight was a big positive and seemed to see them quite often through the night. However the mazes... Blaire Witch - Daytime 3/10 Night 6/10 Yes yes it's a preview event, which is why it has potential. Lots more overgrown , can't see round some corners. More themeing. So much more potential for the event. However very short. Dead Creek Woods - 5/10 Maze has a lot of promise and has a very good chainsaw section in the middle. Ending could be better but hopefully as the event goes on they improve on the ending. But hopeful. Platform 15 , Living Nightmare and Saw all exactly the same which isn't a bad thing. Platform and Saw was good tonight. LN was meh. No actors really but perhaps expected on preview night. But with still two mazes and other elements obviously not shown tonight there is promise. Looking forward to getting back for a 10-10 night later in the event. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. They message me straight back saying this was a mistake... Got my hopes up to quick... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Looks like Thorpe have decided to open later for preview... Just messaged them now [emoji108] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Looks like it is the end for the hall... Hopefully something new for 2019? Idk. Anything is better [emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Okay so the top left is the Do or Die walking dead maze. And if you go on the website you can see descriptions for them all... Vulcan peak is a bag on your head maze ... But what's the two being covered in the middle still?... Hm Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. So what clues we got from this... Big Top at the start... Did recognise the 3 people walking too , but can't put my head on it. Guessing middle video was Blaire? Idk. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  10. MerlinAP just put this on Instagram... Please don't give me false hope [emoji23][emoji58] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Don't know if it's been posted already or not... But Blaire witch theming going up Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Via a ITV article. Can't see too much but the station area is looking good. Actually looking forward to this... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Have to go the other way round, last year's Big Top was really good... when it was split it wasn't scary at all, dragged out and it just didn't work. Having it in one big strobe filled tent last year made it the best maze Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  14. Just want to say how good Derren was today. Queued 20 minutes and the new batching system is still working well. Timing was perfect from the hosts. First section was clear and all audio and visuals working. Timing was perfect again and didn't get help up. VR ended and we got off. Tunnel scene worked and many live actors was there. Second VR timed perfectly again, everything working and some interesting hosts holding my hand. And it's always fun seeing the GP reaction to the new ending. Probably the best I've had on Derren. Hopefully it's always like that and it's a solid part of the park. Was very impressed overall today. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. And it's also apparently now unavailable... Didn't last long [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  16. First 'big' coaster in the UK was the Scenic Railway down Dreamland. I remember my dad dragging me on it crying as a kid... changed a bit now [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  17. I only managed to get onto two mazes last night which was Cabin and The Big Top. The Big Top: Honestly for me it was one of the best Thorpe mazes I have done since the Asylum... probably due to its simular feel. Lots of strobes, fences and actors everywhere on my run through. Had a load of jump scares, good interaction and a decent ending. 9/10 for me... Cabin: It's getting a bit of the same... I think we need to get rid of all the lions gate mazes now. But still a enjoyable maze. It wasn't to scary and some effects don't work but overall it's a good layout and idea that can be made better with an own IP and new affects. 6-7/10 Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  18. We sort of got around it by blagging the priority passes to seemed to be new employees to use them on the big top and platform 15... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  19. Yesterday was a nightmare for me... queued for a hour at 11 being told it was opening for them to turn us away as it was far from opening... Come back when it opened at 3 ish, queued for a hour before it broke down again. Stayed in the queue for another half hour before it started up again; just for half hour later to break down AGAIN! We left the queue and got on with the day and got some free return to Derren Later. At 8 we finally got on the ride just to get evacuated on the first train... and not to get on it again. And all we got was 2 fast tracks which we couldn't even use on the mazes. Fun! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  20. He's too right though [emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  21. Well I'm 6'6'' and do have very long legs, I'm able to fit on every ride at Thorpe; some a bit more tight than others such as Colossus. Have to sit at the front of the cars for those. Same with stealth. Other than that everything is quite accommodating tbf. Don't know about chest size or anything as I'm not the largest [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  22. All the park needs is just slight park wide theming... maybe even one or two scare zones around the park where actors are roaming. No one will expect Universal level but something simular is really needed. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  23. Despite this 'old town' should have a pretty good atmosphere if they do it well... good audio, roaming actors in the queue and lighting. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  24. The map really does show how close every fright night attraction minus Containment is... I actually kind of like that. But I feel the rest of the park will be really bland on the Halloween side of things. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  25. Don't know how official or whatever this, but party! Also the description is showing land names and park information. Didn't know if we knew this already or not. Really hopes this goes ahead. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
