  1. Personally the Eddie Hall collection was a much better fit for me. I mean I guess its not a surprise that a strongman can't fit on many rides, even a retired and slimmed down one lol. Just the sort of publicity the park needs though. When is boohooman x Derren Brown coming out.
  2. As a regular DLP visitor, going from there to Thorpe you do really notice how dirty and tatty the buildings and rides in some cases are in Thorpe. Of course I realize its a park/company on a completely different scale, but you still can't help going to Thorpe and seeing how grotty it is by contrast lol and its ok to mention it as there aren't really that many excuses for it to be so unkempt. I'll caveat this comment by saying that, like others have said, I agree DLP has a lot of issues itself with overcrowding, long queues in peak times etc so no rose tinted glasses here.

  6. Not an overly impressive list but here it is Definite Thorpe Park Alton towers Tulleys farm Siam park (does that count..?) I'm going to assume Brighton Amusements doesn't count either 😁 Likely A European theme park not yet booked (hopefully Europa park) (Very) Long shots Orlando parks (may have to wait a while for this trip though...) Parc Asterix (trip report still in the making from previous visit in October...) Gardaland Cedar Point
  7. Congrats all Worst UK ride not a surprise then... I'm only surprised it wasn't unanimous haha.
  8. Agreed that cameras/people vlogging during ride/maze have to be up there with the most annoying people ever.... Same at Disneyland Paris whenever a show happened if you weren't at the front you'd get a view of a sea of phones. Just enjoy the moment people! I can imagine WDW is even worse for that.
  9. Whenever a new ride opens in Florida carnage seems to follow, I know Universal is a separate park but well the Hagrid's Magical Creatures ride had a queue time up to 10 hours at one point. I guess a lot of the crowds seem to flock to things no matter what the wait time/the chance of breaking down! But that is what happens when you open a new ride in some of the busiest theme parks in the world haha so it isn't a surprise.
  10. Well brace yourself here is my enthusiast level park count: Thorpe Park x3 Alton towers x1 Asterix Park x1 (review still in progress...) Disneyland Paris x1 (3 days and both parks though...) Tulleys (if it counts) x1 Next year I hope to add Europa Park or another European park to that list. Can't wait to go back to Asterix when their new ride opens Florida is still the plan in a few years.

    Thorpe Park 2020

    I feel like having Deluxe VIP Ultimate car park fast track exit tickets is the most likely 'exciting' 2020 development we're gonna see 😂. I'm sure they'll get gifted to "Celebs" from Love Island in no time...
  12. Not sure yet if I'll come along, its my work Christmas party the day before so may be a bit worse for wear haha. Probably winter wonderland at the earliest I guess!

    Thorpe Park 2020

    A new coaster announcement please Thorpe... The Swarm opened in 2012 and derren turd train in 2016 so surely they are due something in the next few years? With towers getting the smiler in 2013 and wicker man in 2018 (I get they have more space but both are great rides), feels like we deserve something better than a rubbish VR train simulator. Not only that but the park has been looking very decrepit, dirty and tatty, whenever you looked at anything too closely you see how filthy and knackered everything is. Even the plants looked crispy and dead in queue lines e.g. the Colossus queue, and graffiti everywhere, it just feels like they honestly don't care about park presentation lol. You definitely wouldnt get that in disney (yes I said it- cliche but true.) Strangely thorpe put a nice flower display near the teacups in a bit of the park nobody really walks through. So yeah a deep clean is what the park needs, and a new ride announcement would be ideal lol.
  14. Forgot to add for anyone interested, on Sunday I only queued 5 minutes for Blair witch as I did it around 9.30 on a Sunday and at that point the park was dead. It was showing a 120 minute queue at some points of the evening so this definitely was the right strategy haha. Living nightmare queue seemed very short too most of the time (even when it said 45 minutes it was actually 20). Did do or die at 9.55pm as again the queues were 100+ minutes most of the evening for that, but only waited 15 mins or so at the end of the night.
