  1. 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.
  2. Love how rumour is always reported as fact here.... Personally I dont care anymore anyway
  3. 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....
  4. Think its just been updated..... Someones having a bad day lol
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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???

    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.

    Unfortunately things happen, and when people have paid money - not matter what the reason - people will complain even if its not their fault. Sure the media team can deal with it, it is their job after all ?

    2018 General Discussion

    Thorpe's marketing team are bad. They seem to be in all directions with no consistency. This year was billed as the Year of the Walking dead. So far there has been a ride retheme and Zombie Hunt. There was some marketing campaign that was abandoned (did anyone ever work out where Chloe is or do we just not even bother mentioning that anymore??) and now the Thorpe website just displays Love Island stuff. Infact there is no mention of the so called Year of the Walking Dead on the homepage anymore, just in the Events section. Colors have been changed from the mustard kinda colour to Blue to fit in with the love island stuff. Where is the consistency? You are either having major conflicting events going on (horror vs reality tv) which will put some people off, thinking its scarier than it really is by the Year of the Walking Dead stuff, or everyone is going to think that the place is going to be full of the cast of TOWIE. Come on Thorpe, marketing isn't difficult! Have a plan and stick to it rather than changing mid year. So far I feel that it has been a let down. Feel that Fright nights might be ruined as some of the mazes (infant the so called Extreme version is not even on fright nights) have been available throughout summer rather than saved up for the fright night dates. Thats my opinion - I know some will disagree!
