  1. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    Desperados sponsorship probably ended
  2. X

    I'd pay good money for them to release the old soundtrack from 2013 if they had it at the expo, but alas I doubt it will ever happen
  3. The Smiler

    Probably not safe with the drop, it's rare you can take bags onto a roller coaster in the UK from my experience
  4. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    I think it's the exit station, the door in the photos is in the right position for it to be

    They were probably referring to Rush being fixed, given it was broken at the end of last season.
  6. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    I get the feeling that the idea behind it is that the apocalypse has happened and the survivors have decided to take over X as a safe zone, which is why the building is the same colour (plus Merlin's lack of will to repaint anything at Thorpe).

    I really need to explore these forums more!

    Defunctland posted this very informative video about Black Hole if anyone is intrested. Also gives a brief history about AT too.

    While I'm sad to see X go this does look like it could be a very high quality and good new ride, and will have tidied up a lot of the areas of X that needed work. If the concept art is anything to judge by then I'd say the corridors will all have been made to look like prison corridors or a hospital perhaps. It also appears that when you're on the ride itself the brake runs will be themed with different areas, I'd imagine with actors trying to grab you, projections, maybe animatronics. I'm curious to see if there's a soundtrack in the pyramid and what will happen between the break runs, guessing maybe intense music and some lighting. I'm going to keep my hopes up for this until I see it in person, although I do hold everyone else's skepticism regarding actors staying with Merlin's track record. R.I.P. X 2013 - 2017

    Duel is getting some much needed work done to it over the closed season:

    Thorpe have shared some more info on the special events this year: https://www.thorpepark.com/blog/your-guide-to-the-year-of-the-walking-dead
  12. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    More likely to be animatronics if it's got a high enough budget, though it's more likely to just be a waxwork with a strobe light sat in front of it
  13. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    I'd be down with that if it means we can finally hear the music on the ride

    It never usually opened before 12 anyway!
  15. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    They wouldn't need to do much to achieve that theme, just keep up the lack of maintenance to the theming and job done!
