  1. Does anyone like me think that Hocus Pocus Hall might be rethemed into a ghost train or haunted house attraction. Another theory of mine is that it could be rethemed into a dungeon attraction. Does anyone agree with me? Please share your thoughts heare!
  2. Sorry to announce this news but the worlds first walking dead attraction is not correct is there also one in America.
  3. Does anyone think Canada creek railway could possibly come back this season?
  4. CallumSyxr when you say a little birdie told me that something will be repaired and working again are you referring to the Canida creek railway or Loggers leap?
  5. Does anybody know if the Rumba boats that are at Alton Towers will come back to Thorpe?
  6. You never know over the closed season Thorpe might put more jungle theme in and around the ride/area
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Do you think it's realistic that it'll return for next season?
  11. Does anyone know if Thorpe plan to do anything with this classic attraction this closed season in time for the next season of 2018?
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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
  15. I have just private messaged Thorpe on Facebook to ask some questions I will report back the answers when I have them.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. So the ride itself will stay just with a new theme. I hope the new theme is Jungle biased or the Thorpe Park Rangers!
  20. I don't think it will be a Topspin but maybe another big cat of some description? I think Animal Welfare would be called if they di install a Topspin in the middle of the zoo section due to the noise generated from the ride and the screaming guests on the ride! Tiger falls looks awesome though! I wonder how they will remove the Buddha statue? I think by Crain but what's you opinion on this do you think a Crain will remove Buddha?
  21. Rumba Rapids was originally open in 1989 as Thunder River. Thunder River was rethemed in 2001 as part of Merlins Ribhenna sponsorship I. Which The ride was renamed Rhibenna Rumba Rapids. However the Rhibenna part of the Name was dropped when the sponsorship ended. Although the ride itself stayed the same apart from a few minor changes. Rhibenna also Sponsored Berry Bouncers at Chessington this ride is know known and themed to the Jungle Bouncers. In the opening year of Thunder River a 11 year old boy Named Jonaphen White was thrown out of his boat and subsequently lost one of his ears! My cousin Natasha now aged twenty-Five went on this ride in 1998 with my grandparents. So does anyone know what the rides future looks like? or when reopened will it have a different theme or have a a touch up. I really don't want this amazing Rapids ride to be closed and lost for ever. Please answer the above questions to the best of your knowledge and if you have heard amÅ· rumours please let me know about them also. Many thanks Theme Park Fanatic!
  22. I'm looking forward to Tiger falls and the tigers being so close to the public. What will go into the existing tiger enclosure?
  23. Is lumber jump still there as I thought it closed with Rumba Rapids.
