  1. Words cannot explain my hype for this! From what we've learnt so far, Efteling (an already immaculate park) are about to gain another fab dark ride that may even shake the industry as a whole. If I'm lucky I'll fit a visit in this year, but if not, I'm gonna have to get here sooner or later.
  2. Was it good? Was planning on viewing but haven't got to it yet.
  3. Planning on watching as many films as I can at the weekend. Be sure to expect a hell of a lot of reviews.
  4. Unless anything pops up, I'll be attending!
  5. Big Top ('16 obvs) proved that when Thorpe put the effort in they can successfully deliver original mazes that are high quality, well-themed and consistently effective scare-wise. I think the complete overhaul took a lot of us by surprise, and I pray that the future mazes to come - although they're IP - will follow its footsteps. The start of something new maybe? We can only hope. My only three problems with TBT would've been the fact that exposure to light and lack of actors in the strobe maze (on my runs) ruined the immersion, and effects such as the drop panel, push panel and two way mirror were never seen in use by myself and most of my friends. I recall one of the designers being a bit miffed off about that. But don't get me on to the abomination we call P15.. I have quite a bit of hope for next year, with the fact that we're set to see something a bit different if the island really is "changing"". Dominic Jones seems pretty confident about it. From what I've gathered, I think he'll play a great part in improving Thorpe as a park overall.
  6. "A big plus of that is that we are able to update this when newer technology becomes available, meaning a more intense experience for you". *prays for computers with a fully functioning cooling system*
  7. Thorpe seem to be filming some Ghost Train related content today.
  8. I saw a review discussing this. I see where they're coming from, however I doubt that anyone's going to leave thinking "Gee, I'm sure that must be exactly how someone with DID behaves". I do understand how a sufferer would find it offensive, but the people involved in the creation of the film have stated a number of times that this film is based off of purely fictitious events and in no way shows a realistic portrayal of the disorder. Some people were going as far to say that Split's transphobic..pathetic.
  9. Disagreed. I'd say it's no more than a neat little easter egg for those who have seen Unbreakable. It tells us nothing more than the fact that the characters from both films live in the same universe - nothing that really assists Split's narrative. The Village, Unbreakable & The Visit were a bit naff imo, however Signs was alright. I think TSS is and forever will be his finest work.
  10. I watched Split yesterday. As I do with all the films I watch, I entered the cinema with low expectations in hope of being blown away. Fortunately, I didn't leave disappointed. For those who haven't heard about this masterpiece, the story revolves around mentally-ill Kevin, a man with at least 23 distinct personalities, who is compelled to abduct three teenage girls. During their captivity, his final personality "The Beast" begins to materialise - which leads to all hell breaking loose. Although you may've been unaware about the film's existence, I'm sure you're familiar with the director & writer M. Night Shyamalan, who is considered the father of supernatural films with mind-blowing plot twists (he was the creator of The Sixth Sense, a personal favourite of mine). Disappointingly, my only two problems with Split was that it lacked a signature Shyamalan plot twist and I found the ending very anticlimactic (a common trait of modern horror imo). Apart from that, I absolutely loved it. It stands out from half the horror films that film companies are lazily churning out nowadays. It had the perfect combination of suspense, narrative, unexpectedness & surprisingly, laughs. Visually, the cinematography was great, it was excellently written and the acting was incredible - especially James McAvoy. I won't say much more as films like this are best left unspoiled, but I'll conclude with this thought.. What could be achievable if the human brain was able to use 100% of itself?
  11. I'm going to assume that this is the missing content that never had the time to make it onto the ride till now (eg. IT COMES FROM THE BOWELS OF THE EEEEARTH).
  12. Well there goes my hopes of a new lineup of original mazes @ Fright Night's..
  13. Frankly, I'm disgusted. Now that you've said that, I'm gonna fetch myself one. Cheers.
  14. Thought I was the only one.
