  1. Isn't that the idea of having the hotels? To attract people? Would be stupid for a company not to capitalise on their offerings surely?
  2. Dont think they will stop it this time. I believe it was stopped as people didn't pay, and as the entry system was older they couldnt stop the use of the pass. Now it's all on Accesso and connected via a central system, they can terminate passes and it stops entry if you miss payments so they dont loose out.
  3. Personally don’t see this impacting at all. Thorpe is established and been there too long for a new development (which would of been aware of the site before construction) causing issues with future attractions.
  4. Unless I’m missing something it’s free. For premium passes or £1 to pre book. Standard passes are £10 and only £20 during the peek time at the end of the month towards the end.
  5. Love how rumour is always reported as fact here.... Personally I dont care anymore anyway
  6. Again not my point... I said that Figaro did the Construction - its them they might not want to use for some reason, that was my point. Forget it - pretend I didnt say anything....
  7. Think its just been updated..... Someones having a bad day lol
  8. Not saying it would stop them, but as they have experience (never know might even be some of the props and inside stuff) the decision might been made not to use them and rather than build a worse version than the year before from people who have not had experience - they just didnt. Just a theory.
  9. If you have someone who does it right, getting someone else in is a risk, as they could get a backlash if its rubbish. Also depends on the contract I suppose. Would explain why they have decided against bringing it back it though.
  10. I wouldn't be that surprised if Big Top didn't come back. Wasn't Figaro Bros the company who Thorpe hired to make the maze? They are the ones with the project zero stuff that has nothing todo with the park but advertised in the park - probably without Thorpes Permission. If wither Figaro Bros wasn't able to commit to the maze because of their own scare attraction or Thorpe dropped them because of it, could explain why its not coming back despite everyone seeming to want it.
  11. Got to love the Thorpe/Merlin PR. Spelling mistakes, website inconsistencies in regards to opening times, old pictures being uploaded to advertise fright nights... Well done Merlin!
  12. I would say that given that the Fright Nights page on thorpepark.com says: FRIGHT NIGHTS Returns for 2018 featuring AMC's The Walking Dead. I would say its going to be very heavy Walking Dead theme. Also it is the Year of the Walking Dead. Walking dead has only been about for 1 year at Fright nights if memory serves. I did think that Walking Dead would be get boring by Fright Nights. Personally think the two mazes opening mid year would of also stopped some people from bothering with fright nights.
  13. I agree. We dont know how Long The Walking Dead IP will last - look at Saw The ride, thats been going for a while now. Might have several years of The Walking Dead before it expires.
  14. I must admit I do find the theories funny. I love how much stock people take from the staff. I do think it’s a bit like Chinese whispers amongst staff. I also find it incredibly hard to believe that the management of the park tell seasonal staff all of the latest information. As for the Studio 13 stuff, it might come back, but how often do you ever see a maze come back thats been totally canned?? The props are used in zombie hunt but is that not as zombie hunt was low budget and somewhere there is a bit warehouse of the old props they decided to use?? How about we all just enjoy the summer and see what the park announces???
  15. Surely its good that Merlin are trying out new technologies?? Yeah its a gamble and maybe it didn't pay off, but is that such a bad thing? The parks would be stale and boring if they didnt take a risk here and there.
