    So why were the anniversary events cancelled?
  3. Because Varney is desperate to get to the 1000 rooms, that’s all the sheds are for a tick box for shareholders.
  4. Heads up for anyone who’s booked hotels or made arrangements for Fireworks this year, they’ve now changed the opening calendar and fireworks are now a week later with an added day -Friday 8th, Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th November.

    Periods of downtime don’t necessarily mean reliability issues, it could be idiots with mobiles or a handful for other reasons.
  6. Old thread I know but only appropriate place to post given it’s a relatively small park with no thread of its own. But Flambards have fortunately had the case thrown out as they had made significant improvements and they were even acknowledged by the boy’s legal team. Basically this case was wrong they only attempted to further it because it was “no win, no fee” but now it’s costing them thousands. https://www.cornwalllive.com/news/cornwall-news/disabled-boy-who-tried-sue-2708196

    Unfortunately until Merlin get tough on just who is eligible for RAP this is how it’s always going to be. I assume they are too worried about getting Daily Mail stories such as “Merlin said I wasn’t disabled enough anymore”

    Buying VIP on the day would get you exit entry treatment but that annual pass version won’t unless there is specific instruction from management (front row, special event etc) Considering the event was also staff day it could of been a manager or management friends family or even ride host friends family.
  9. Are the Dungeons at Towers run as a midway or are they “Alton Towers presents The Dungeons”?
  10. What I find more shocking is if it’s not finished then why is it open and why are they charging money for it?

  12. So much for future of theme parks then.But in reality correct decision, they didn’t update with new videos / alternate journeys so it got boring extremely fast and the quality was poorWill there be a new theme to bring the park a “New for 2020“ 🙄

    Remember this is being done by a third party, not Thorpe Park. Upcharge on seating and even cushions is the norm at these outdoor cinema events

    Not forgetting those silver coloured ones expecting fastrack when they can pull themselves away from the hospitality marquee. But apart from cost cutting it really is madness to mix the event with staff & pass holders

    Pirates 😂 These screening things usually go ahead even in heavy rain, they advise you to be prepared although they will upsell ponchos etc Like you it’s not for me but it will appeal to some.
