    2019 Season

    Thorpe don't appear to be too impressed with plans to build a retirement home near the site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-47236355 "Merlin Entertainment said the development of 79 apartments could impact future investment at the attraction because residents might object to noise coming from the rides and visitors."

    TPM TP Opening Weekend Meet - Sat 30th March

    I'll be coming, would be up for the meal afterwards too, not really fussed with which restaurant it is. We can hide from the apocalypse in Thorpe! (sarcasm)

    2019 Season

    Seems like Thorpe's twitter team actively want to be roasted now: There's many more replies, but didn't want to make this post too long. Strangely enough, Thorpe (I think for the first time this year) actually acknowledged the negative tweets being made...

    2019 Season

    I remember seeing Facebook and email adverts last year with this sort of thing, the Facebook page was called Merlin Backstage or something similar and it was advertising a range of different Merlin attractions and Merlin passes over two adverts. The Merlin pass is currently the main thing linking all the attractions together and the GP who own it are aware of the 'Merlin' brand/company.

    I've seen plenty of online adverts (banner ads) for breaks at Thorpe Park but nothing else.

    TPM Guildford Meet Feb 19

    Depending on if I can get out of work that day I'll either be down for the entire time or just the bowling

    'I'm a Celebrity' Maze

    If it is closing for good then I wonder if we'll see the building go back to only being used at Fright Nights or becoming another year-round attraction. Can't see it being used for much else apart from maze-type attractions.

    Ride Sims

    Only ever played the original a little, went back to play it some more and found it had closed. Will definitely be giving it a proper go this time!

    Interesting to see some areas that Thorpe clearly don't want the public to see, strange that they keep the lighting on if no work is being done 🤔 Also highlights once again that Thorpe has a security problem, you'd think they'd sort it out after the break ins and people scaling Stealth (although the guy did say he filmed that video a few months ago).

    Is there a maximum length for hair

    Definitely, the photo is of Xie Qiuping, the world record holder for longest hair: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/longest-hair-(female)

    Blackpool Central

    Today Blackpool Council announced £300 million plans to develop the site of the old Central Railway Station into a new entertainment attraction, scheduled to open in 2024. Attractions include: The Flying Theatre Virtual reality experience Alien Diner A Multi-media exhibition Adventure Land Thrill and Gaming Zone There are also plans for hotels, shops, and restaurants to complement the new area. More info: https://www.blackpool.gov.uk/Your-Council/Creating-a-better-Blackpool/Blackpool-Central/Blackpool-Central.aspx https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-46476635 So what are your thoughts on this? Personally I think it looks like an amazing addition to Blackpool and will be a great addition to the line up of already existing attractions.

    Good to hear they did go ahead with the various changes they said earlier! Looks like they've finally replaced all the light bulbs on the organ (even if it's not as good as it used to be it's still nicer to have it properly lit). Are the floods in the ceiling just a static colour now?

    The 'star' stuff is a running thing throughout the year, staff and MAP holders can give staff a 'star' if they think someone is doing an exceptional job. I think the star ball is only for those with a number of stars but I'm not sure.

    The chandeliers haven't been binned, just stored at the back of the station, you can see them if you look closely as the train goes back into the platform.
