  1. I think the ride looks decent. Yes this is nothing special or anything innovative, but its probably a step up from the state that Bubbleworks was in.. Maybe the theming in places are a little sparse, but its opening day, things can still change.. Anyway this is probably way better than some of the flops we've seen recently.. Not naming any names IAC, DBGT, Sub Terrible..
  2. Christ.. Calling that cycle pathetic is generous.. The ride barely opens.. And when it does, we get this.. I think its time Merlin put Rameses to rest, even Ripsaw didn't run THAT badly..
  3. I think it'll probably be a great ride, definitely not a Shambhala beater, but probably the second best there. Very odd though that they're adding a Intamin Accelerator and a drop tower.. Like they don't already have those models in there lineup.. Holy sh** that name though
  4. Lorde is back.. (If you know who she is) Probably not her best work, but that Piano Riff is bae <3
  5. I play very basic guitar.. (Badly at that) I'm hoping to take professional lessons somewhat soon though, so my ears stop bleeding every time I attempt to play a instrument
  6. Just watched Hush on Netflix, and I gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised. Its not anything outstanding, but its a very effective thriller with a smart twist on the home invasion genre.
  7. I think IP's aren't the problem of Fright Nights to be honest.. Actually Platform was actually quite a refreshing idea for a scare maze, and look how that attraction turned out.. Though I think the current IP mazes are fairly stale due to their age, which happens to most scare attractions anyways.
  8. Just.. Why? If they're gonna open it, you'd think they would open it during peak times.. Very odd..
  9. Yes.. Loggers is 100% opening.. And Alton are getting a Aquatrax next year..
  10. You're generally not missing much. Actually a lot of the rides at Thorpe are outclassed by American Counterparts. For example Gatekeeper/X Flight are probably better than Swarm, though Swarm has better theming. Nemesis Inferno is a fairly weak invert compared to the likes of Afterburn/Banshee/Montu. Stealth is outclassed in nearly every way by Xcelerator at Knotts.. As well as Kingda Ka/Top Thrill Dragster dwarfing it in comparsion. Saw and Colossus aren't anything to shout about as both are fairly rough too Derren Brown's Ghost Train is the probably the main thing you'd be missing out on, but they're better dark rides out there IMO.
  11. Still kinda sloppy running one train on rides that could run two.. Especially in comparison to parks like Europa.. Which run run three trains on Silver Star.. often.. But all parks do have there problems, and sometimes it can be unavoidable.. Though on my visits to BPB I wouldn't call there operations anything to shout about..
  12. I think Silver Star depends on the seat.. I've noticed towards the back row the ride offers a few ejector moments, and the ride has alright floater air in most seats. I'd still call it great though, as it is a B&M Hyper after all. But its definitely one of the weaker B&M Hypers though..
  13. Yep this will definitely happen.. Along with Rumba getting a revamp, Loggers opening this year, and a B&M Strata next to Swarm..
  14. I think when done right free flow can be brilliant, look at Sub Species/Skin Snatchers. But with Thorpe's usually sloppy operations, the free flow mazes tend to overflow and overcrowd horribly.. Conga Lines do have a lot of negatives yes, but with the over-bearing demand that Fright Nights bring, it seems more practical IMO. Though I do agree on TOTT, which isn't helped by some stairs/uneven flooring which makes the conga line style even more inconvenient.
  15. I think Saw Alive has been quite good post ScareCon. It seems they've loaded the maze with actors in the last few years, which means scares come quite thick and fast. Also Saw Alive isn't plagued with the issues of being a free-flow maze..
