  1. The Future of Rumba Rapids!

    Does anybody know if the Rumba boats that are at Alton Towers will come back to Thorpe?
  2. The Future of Rumba Rapids!

    You never know over the closed season Thorpe might put more jungle theme in and around the ride/area
  3. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    I don't think it will be a walk through maze life Saw-Alive as I'm pritty certain that I read somewhere that the rollacoaster structure itself was staying and just being rethemed just like Chessingon kept the Bubbleworks boats and layout but just rethemed the scenery to become Gruffalo themed.
  4. 2017/2018 closed season work!

    If anyone knows anything or has any photo updates from the current closed season you can post It all here. What if anything do you think will happen to Old Town or the second hand Waymouth Sealife Rides that arrived for the start of last season. Post anything closed season related on this thread!

    However Loggers is already there all they need to do is replace some parts and retheme or refresh it whereas any Slammer replacement would have to be built from scratch that's the difference that's my opinion anyway.

    So it'll definitely return then!
  7. The Future of Rumba Rapids!

    Do you think it's realistic that it'll return for next season?
  8. Canada Creek Railway: The Bear Hunt

    Does anyone know if Thorpe plan to do anything with this classic attraction this closed season in time for the next season of 2018?
  9. The Future of Rumba Rapids!

    Does anyone know or has anyone herd any romourers as to what if anything Thorpe are doing with this fantastic classic this closed season in time for next season?
  10. Logger's Leap

    I think that Thorpe will try to reopen Loggers in time for this coming season after all the main director wants to! Does anyone ageee with this or have any idea or have herd any rumours regarding this much loved classic?
  11. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    Don't panic yet !the WD may just be a codename as Thorpe have only just refurbished X and I doubt that they would waste their money or change their target audience for the sake of one ride. Living dead might be the sponsor but may tone thier scaryness down to create a mild well themed special effects ghost train combined rollercoaster for the younger guests/family's Similar to Crushes Coaster at Disneyland Paris but horror themed instead of Nemo.I think this is extremely likely given Derren brown is next door and that is aimed at the teen/adult audience.we can live in hope! my point is backed up by the failure of Saw alive the permanent horror attraction with live actors back in 2011
  12. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    I have just private messaged Thorpe on Facebook to ask some questions I will report back the answers when I have them.

    The two former waymouth rides look hideous in their surroundings I hope over the closed season these are removed! A Rumba refurbishment and reopening would be good though.
  14. The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

    I think that Thorpe Will carry out the Rumba retheme and also Refurbish and possibly rethehene. I also hope Canada Creek Railway Returns as the have some track and the trains are in Storage so if you read between the lines this could mean thier considering bring it back. As why keep engines and track without entending to reopen it. I also would hope that they will remove Slammer as with it not being in use or even operational Thorpe could utilise this space for something better for instance Peeking Hights from Chessington as if would fit the space and used to be at Thorpe under the name Eclipse.

    Good hope you right regarding the Jungle theme. They could add attractive the theming like the spraying elephants at Chessingtons former dragon falls or Legolands Boating School?
