  1. So turns out Mr Morris from Friday Night Dinner was right... These Punk Rockers are everywhere! Back on topic... I'm interested to see how it'll come out, no offense to them but their music just sounds like bog standard emo hardcore. I'd love it if it was anything like Rob Zombie but I do have my doubts based on the back catalogue. I get that they are likely doing it for next to nothing possibly for exposure, but I don't understand how it would get people into your music if its so different from what you normally do. I suppose Thorpe don't really care if its not as good as it could be and see it as a bargain!
  2. I'm definitely a fan of 'intense' mazes, which is why asylum and the chop shop are my favorite mazes of all time. Having said that I used to enjoy Hellgate and Se7en for example, because they each had their own charm and were definitely entertaining, but for pure scare factor they don't quite come close for me. I find platform 15 and blair witch dull and monotone other than the house scene in platform and the finale in blair witch. Hoping there are some tweaks to both. Will wait and see if this new maze delivers the intensity, and balances it with some theming and charm too!
  3. Not sure where they got their stock image from but in my opinion these people look more like 40 with 2 kids and a mortgage rather than 18 year old A-Level students celebrating their results... (obviously I know there are mature students out there but I mean its not the image I would have gone with)
  4. Sorry another double post... This year will be the 10th anniversary of 'Peur sur le parc' so they have a new 'haunted house', aka maze in the UK, coming. From what I can gather using google translate, their mazes are: The catacombs, new for 2019. I think this seems quite a unique idea so I look forward to seeing what they've done with it. The Anubis Wrath, an ancient egyptian themed maze, again quite different. The House of Fear, looks more standard as a haunted house, looks like a man with a chainsaw and the usual monsters in there. Mission Lost, some sort of 3D alien maze, not sure how this will work out Look forward to giving them a try next month!
  5. Yeah I assume this is how it'll work, I guess there never used to be much difference between them so that may be why I don't remember having a choice haha. I agree that its a welcome change for Paris (although I've always loved ToT!), I was worried that they'd get rid of the Twilight Zone in favor of the story lines used in other parks, so for them to keep it and give it a refresh is a great outcome in my books. As Rock'n'rollercoaster will be shut while I'm there next month, ToT will be the ride I do over and over in the studios haha ❤️
  6. Double post... sorry. Details of the changes to the Tower of Terror have been announced. There will be 3 separate stories. Looks a bit scarier if I'm honest so I'm looking forward to trying each of the 3 out! I've copied over the details they've published on each below. Not sure if 'shaft creatures' is a bad translation but it sounds a bit odd haha. The 3 horrors: The Malevolent Machine The little ghost girl haunts this elevator. But she is the least of your worries. Because as soon as you take your seat, this malevolent machine only has one thing in mind – to trap you, and clank and screech with glee as it catapults you up and plummets you down at its wicked will without warning. The only thing you can do is hold tight and scream! Will you be able to free yourself from its grip? The Shaft Creatures “They know you’re here. Whatever you do, don’t scream!” Scary creatures roam around the elevator shaft and are looking for distressed souls to terrorize – as the louder your pleas for mercy, the more powerful they become. Can you stay silent while plummeting – several times – 13 unlucky floors at the speed of fright? The 5th Dimension Don’t get lost in this dimension! A sinister Poltergeist specter has opened the 5th dimension and wants to take your soul with it. Prepare to question everything you think is real as you’re dropped into a terrifying psychedelic journey between worlds. Will the little ghost girl be able to take you back to our dimension? I'm not sure how it will work with each of the 3, whether you will get a choice or not, how exactly it will work in practice I will be interested to see.

    Music

    Appreciate nobody has posted in here for a while... Usually around late august I start getting in a halloween mood and the amount of Wednesday 13 I listen to dramatically increases. Nice bit of horror metal and some amusing titles (e.g. my home sweet homicide, happily ever cadaver). They are also big film and TV geeks and some of their songs are quite tongue in cheek, there a lot of references dotted about (e..g. their nod to Vincent Price below). from their newest album, slower but quite melodic and haunting
  8. So it seems the announcement on Monday was a continuation of a story on the new wastelands area. Seems like a fun idea to write a story but I don't think we learnt anything that we didn't already know. On a side note... I'm going to Tulleys with family including my dad who has never been in a scare maze of any kind. He says he doesn't get scared by anything...hopefully we will get some good run throughs to test that theory!
  9. I'm sure everyone from love island were gassed to come and hear it live!
  10. Not sure where to put this, but I believe on Thursday last week (5th September) BoohooMan did an event at Thorpe which included a range of Love island contestants and other 'celebs' (ahem), It was a launch of a clothing collaboration with 'Deno' (never heard of him). I think other than 500 people who entered a competition to win a ticket to this event, it was closed to the general public (assuming just in the evening). Unsure if this was to help raise hype for thorpe and therefore subsidised... If not hopefully it generated a bit of cash at least!
  11. I'm not sure why blair witch still remains, surely there is something more exciting they can do with the space. I did it last year and well it was better than dead creek woods but pretty poor, and not many actors. When you look at Tulleys for example, they only really have one dud maze (VIXI) but they have 8 others and circus of horrors too, and seem to be going from strength to strength, while Thorpe's FNs feel a bit stagnant. The roaming actors at tulleys are a laugh and they definitely create an atmosphere. When a maze seems to be getting mixed reviews (again other than VIXI) they seem to reinvent it, like the colony and the cellar. It seems that thorpe just doesn't care as I'm sure they think people (like me lol) will turn up regardless of how much they change so why bother. They've taken a leaf out of tulleys book with doing a copy sister to the chop shop, but I feel they shouldn't have stopped there.
  12. I'm sure its already on the local MP's radar, the loss of RR paired with some missed bin collections and a Waitrose becoming a Lidl would result in carnage in the consituency.
  13. Unpopular opinion alert! lol. Asylum always used to be the highlight of fright nights for me. Can't believe this is going to be as good but who knows.
  14. ‘Most intense maze ever’. Lol jokes aside it looks like it has potential... just have to wait and see.
