    Wicker Man - New for 2018

    I love the ride itself, probably only behind Smiler and Nemesis for me and thats without taking into account any of the theming. My friend who doesnt really care about the theming who came with us also loved it, he put it above Stampida. Maybe it comes down to the fact you have been on so much more rides than me.

    Logger's Leap

    Yeah I don't think it's concrete evidence Loggers is returning or anything like others, but thought it was worth posting here anyway. Also suggests they like to have a joke about it, which would also be poor.

    Sorry for the double post, but feel like it's necessary here. Brentford's Technical Director has died aged 28. Rest in Peace.

    Yep. And we're 15th ? We are a shambles atm. If we aren't near the play off places in January we'll lose Maupay, Mepham, Watkins as well as Barbet, Macleod and McEachran and then I can honestly see us going down if that happens.

    Fright Nights 2018 - Spoiler Thread

    I'll have a look at that then, I try to avoid YouTubers who use the word "sick" and use those hand motions he does as much as I possibly can but I guess I'll make an exception. Then again, I've never seen a negative comment during a press night anywhere so it probably won't be the same. That last bit says it all really.

    Fright Nights 2018 - Spoiler Thread

    cough Jack Silkstone cough. Whether he gets paid or just a suck-up, it was so blatant when he repeated the exact same stuff after every single maze on the preview night. It was "soo sick". Also, watched two POVs of Vulcan Peak just now, and oh my word. I didn't make it through all of I'm a Celeb because it got too much for me and I don't think I would be even slightly scared in that thing. Love how before the ending you literally just walk through the behind the scenes area that I exited through, without any attempt to theme it.

    ...I'm so confused right now...

    There's a few reasons why that won't happen, the main one being it's going to be Room on the Broom. Also, why do a lot of your ideas revolve around pretty obscure IPs?

    Just got home from ithe first day and honestly today was one of the best days I've ever had at Chessie, and as you all know I have had many. Didn't go in Creepy Caves or Curse today (Curse was actually closed for a large portion of it) but the atmosphere around the park is pretty great and Trick or Treat Wood was actually surprisingly good. Music could have been turned up a bit in some areas though, still using the music I linked above if you scroll up in most areas however around the Gruffalo Arena they're playing the IMAScore soundtrack from a few years ago, one of my favourite theme park soundtracks out there. As I said, TOTW was surprisingly decent, my sister got a few genuine scares on the way round and the actor playing Xander was brilliant. All the actors knew exactly who to target, not the tiny little kids but mostly kids younger than me. Throughputs were pretty horrendous though. Speaking of throughputs, operations were up and down. At times on Dragon's Fury cars were leaving the station every few seconds, but then there's Tiger Rock. They were letting a certain amount of people into the station then not letting anyone in at all until nearly everyone had boarded, then when the ride had a delay there was no announcement, instead we had two guests go around the queue telling everyone. Then there's leaving the park. We had an interesting experience. Basically, the park was put on lockdown because a child with severe autism ran away and went missing, from what we hear. I've made no secret of my (pretty mild) autism on here and I've had to remove myself from certain situations at parks before so I completely understand, I also understand why they put the park on lockdown. That's not the problem. The problem is, why, oh why have roaming scare actors scaring kids who are waiting to leave? I wasn't around when it was going on but from the descriptions I've heard it was pretty chaotic. We had tears from my 10 year old sister as one (dressed in a black robe that completely obscured their face) stood in front of her before suddenly jumping out. There were children as young as babies crying scared. Eventually the actors were asked to leave, but it begs the question, why have scare actors scaring little kids in a kids park, especially when there's already a kid missing because he had to remove himself from an overwhelming situation? We saw more than one kid run off away from the actors. I'm sure it's great entertainment for adults and teenagers at parks like Thorpe where they're expecting it. Not little kids at Chessington. Apart from that though, as I said it was great, and I highly recommend Howloween this year.

    I was expecting Room on the Broom, doesn't mean to say I wanted it though. I'm pretty sure most of us who are disappointed just didn't want an IP.
