  1. On Friday, they'd actually sold out of all advanced fast passes already 1-2 days beforehand, and on the day all one shots had sold out also (except for rumba rapids...) As a result some of the queues felt like they moved at an absolute snails pace - especially Saw where the fast track queue was out the gate and nemesis where it was back to rumba rapids. Went with low expectations, managed swarm, stealth, nemesis, Colossus, black mirror, depth charge and the tea cups and felt that wasn't too bad considering. Of course saw didn't open on time (I don't think it opened until 11ish) so
  2. I would say that even if you got there and inside say by 9.30, having been keeping an eye on the queues for e.g. saw, Colossus and nemesis this/last week (if they managed to open on time) were easily getting to around 45 min+ by 10.30. Yesterday Saw had already managed to hit "90+" minutes by the time it got to 10.25. I'm going on Friday and slightly dreading how mad it'll be to be honest (when I booked I had hoped it wouldn' t be too bad), although its not sold out under 'reduced capacity' as people say I doubt its much different to a typical summer weekday in non-covid times.
  3. I guess with the weather being a bit rubbish, more people may have preferred to do an indoor ride/attraction. thank you!
  4. Does anyone happen to have a pic of the QR code to book a timeslot for this please? Can't say I'm really keen to go on it but some people in my group haven't done it before so want to 'experience' (if that's the right word) it lol. Also sad news that @MattyMoo reported the demon scene is out of action again- its a cheap trick but honestly one of the better parts of the whole thing hah. Thanks
  5. Does anyone know what's wrong with Tidal Wave? Saw some pictures yesterday with it not having any water and I think its been out for a few days now. On a side note I believe tickets for Thorpe are sold out now up until Saturday.
  6. Yeah she was on love island but going back a few years now. I mean I guess the video doesn’t give much away but just looks like a hall of mirrors with a few flashing lights and some other effects hah 😂 let’s see.
  7. Bit late to the party on this one but I'm a bit annoyed they've got rid of the bag rooms and replaced them with shelves, as I know people who have had belongings stolen from these and certainly in summer its hard to wear something that can store your phone etc. securely. I guess as people are saying its probably all about budget and cutting down staff costs, shame. Can't say there's a huge amount to get excited by from the photos but I'll reserve judgement hah.
  8. I think an announcement on opening day is imminent- Alton Towers have just announced the reopening of the theme park and 'selected self-contained accomodation' on the 12th April. So I assume thorpe will follow suit!
  9. Couldn’t find a suitable place to put this so I thought I’d make a new thread. If you have any recommendations or links to shows/documentaries on theme parks, post them here! I wanted to recommend the documentary series ‘The Imagineering Story’ on Disney+. It’s a really incredible series covering all sorts like the history and design of the parks, how they created Disneyland in California and the park in China, developing rides and animatronics, behind the scenes for several rides and all sorts really.

  13. and don't forget to go to mount fuji to see the mountain go to fuji-q highland and get on do-dodonpa. Know you love a launch coaster as much as I! Now that disneyland tokyo has a new beauty and the beast area I'd love to go back lol, and disneysea is stunning for sure. Florida was next on my list for a big trip, although 2021 looking less likely right now 😐 2 trips to thorpe park will have to do for 2020, more than I expected tbh so can't complain!
  14. Disneyland Paris is closing from the end of tomorrow due to government advice, hoping to reopen during the Christmas period (when they’re at their busiest) but then closing again for January and February. Sad for the staff and cast members working there.
  15. After 2 trips to Thorpe park for Fright Nights 2020 (the past 2 Fridays), thought I’d write up a review. Starting off with some general comments, I certainly was pleased at the variety of things going on in the park. It’s nice that in most areas, there was something happening, when in the past there would be several dead areas in the park without shows, actors, zones or anything to tell you you’re at fright nights. I’m assuming this is also to help spread people out covid wise. It is hard to rate things given how different things are compared to any other year due to
