  1. Fires at Thorpe Park?

    Yeah it wasn't the length of the whole park haha
  2. Fires at Thorpe Park?

    It was installed on the opposite side of the park, but it was more of an attempt to replace haunt's place in the lineup as opposed to fill the area where it stood.
  3. Update on Octopus garden rides post leaving Thorpe Park!

    I know they were removed to make way for Storm Surge, but I'm not sure what they did with them afterwards. I wouldn't assume another park bought them, maybe they were put into storage?
  4. Fires at Thorpe Park?

    It was replaced by Detonator and one other ride which I believe was Vortex.
  5. Tulley's Shocktober Fest Scream Park 2017

    Oh yeah and the other descriptions have been updated too, Twisted Clowns will still have the gimmicky 3D. The Cellar also hints towards another creature being featured in the maze, not sure if it's the same description as last year. Also believe this to be a new image for VIXI that I don't remember seeing in the Hellements gallery last year:

    Thought VIXI was meant to be completely new? Apparently it's The Hellements VIXI
  7. MAP Discount

    Not 100% sure but I doubt it as you have to pay extra for fright nights with an annual pass anyway.
  8. Thorpe Park Engineer Salary?

    Will do, thanks for the response!
  9. Thorpe Park Engineer Salary?

    Might sound like an odd question but I was wondering if anybody knows how much Thorpe Park engineers get paid. I am looking to do a career with mechanical engineering in the future and was wondering if Thorpe was a good idea or not. I know I'll enjoy it because working with machines and rides is what I enjoy doing, but I don't want to set my goal as an engineer there just to find out I'll be payed a fraction of minimum wage, which I expect Merlin get away with . Any info as to other wages there might help as well so I can get an idea of how much they pay generally for work. Thanks.

    I feel Tulleys is more intense as well, and I didn't experience a touch scare once last year at Thorpe. The lack of actors at Thorpe means mazes are often long and drawn out without any real scares, whereas Tulleys is full of actors hiding around every corner, creating an onslaught of scares.
  11. Park Operations

    I believe the delay is caused by disorder on the part of the employees. The last time I went through the bag check I spent most of the time waiting for the employees to finish their conversation before poking my bag with a stick and waving me through.

    Am I hearing a new entrance being developed which interacts with a brand new B&M Hyper? No probably not.

    When it's only a mild shock out of the blue it scares you. And they are scare attractions.
  14. Park Music

    Today was my first visit since the update to the lost city soundtrack, and despite my initial feelings of 'nothing can improve that music' and 'I'm never visiting any Merlin park ever again', the new music seems to breathe new life into the area and makes it feel much more alive. It seemed refreshed and lively compared to past experiences. Colossus on the other hand...
  15. Fright Nights 2017

    Saw that at the park today. Looked as if the floor was either complete or almost complete and the frames of the tents seemed to be going up pretty fast.
