    Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Sounds like BPB isn't fully ready yet but it's good there was a big crowd willing to visit at this time of year. I didn't like the way BPB dealt with breakdowns when I visited last year though. They're going to have to change their attitude in that regard.

    Nearby Development

    So this article came up about Thorpe objecting to a nearby retirement development because the new residents would complain about the noise. I guess they are objecting to this to cover themselves legally in the future if this development went ahead? It could well interfere with Thorpes future development plans.

    Nearby Development

    I just think they're covering themselves though by being able to say "We objected" if new residents do move in next door and complain about noise.

    The Next Big Thing

    Thorpe don't know who they are targeting, what direction to take the park in and has pretty much been abandoned for major new investments from Merlin after DBGT.

    Premium season passes

    The digipass makes it a pretty good offer.

    2019 Season

    I think they were offending the enthusiasts too much so this post is to offend everyone else. Good job Thorpe, bravo. 🙄 👏🤦‍♂️

    Not for lols?
  9. Stop wasting money on it and knock down the whole ride. Then put a real ghost train in the building.

    2019 Season

    Well the current social media is really trying to p off their followers. Basically saying, yeah we know what we're bad at but we're going to mess with you anyway just for lols rather than tell you what the improvements are.

    I'll be at the meal. Also just to be aware, travellers have set up camp in the spectrum carpark this week. https://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/travellers-move-guildford-spectrum-car-15746063 They have left the Spectrum now.

    Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

    The Dr Archibald was another VR ride that felt like more of a demo. Not worth £9 a go. The best parts of it were actually the real world theming in the queue and the exit tunnel. To me its conclusive that no matter how good VR may be, it does not beat the immersion of real world, old fashioned theming, animatonics, smoke, lighting, sound effects & UV.

    2019 Season

    Yeah, there's not really much of a marketing campaign for Thorpe yet like Chessington and Towers. I have a feeling that Thorpe is going to focus on it's anniversary in a big way. Maybe have more throwback type stuff. They're certaintly targeting us as enthusiasts this year with the maintenance videos and old references. That's the problem with Thorpe though, it has an identity crisis.

    2019 Season

    This sounds great, the best parks in Europe have roaming actors. I just hope Thorpe can make it work for the whole season.

    The Alton Towers Dungeons - New for 2019

    It's a bit of a slap in the face to Premium MAP holders. Making their second biggest customers pay extra for the privilege. That's power towers.
  16. 16 hours maintenance a day is ridiculous. Now we know why it always opens later.

    TPM Guildford Meet Feb 19

    My Meerkat runs out 2 days before 😕 But I'm going to renew it for £1 travel insurance after it runs out 😄 I've saved quite a bit with it before.
  18. Good to have the dates now thanks. I will make some plans, until then put me down as definately maybe!

    Should be free, Sunday bowling deal sounds good. I know there's a Beefeater and Frankie & Benny's close by, don't mind.

    Is Nemesis the best Invert?

    The steelwork was put in to stop the creature from escaping. The army came in and did all that. You see the General Public don't recognise the story, they just think it's a ride.

    Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

    Did the Top Scan for the first time yesterday. Really enjoyed it actually, was very different to what I expected when you watch it. Said goodbye with a back seat ride on Olypia Looping. It was so forceful I had to push up to stop the restraints crippling me. Hangover was fun to watch. Also went on Wilde Maus XXL, the only other coaster worth doing IMO.

    Ride Sims

    It's quite good, spent an hour on it today. I was struggling with getting the two stations to work on Space Mountain though.

    Paultons Park

    It looks like it will a US Route 66 style theme from the new map. I've never been myself however it's worth keeping an eye on as they seem to be doing very well at the moment.

    Is Nemesis the best Invert?

    Yes it is the best and my personal no.1 rollercoaster.

    Nemesis Inferno

    Ah, I didn't realise that's what the track looks like unpainted.
