  1. Nothing officially confirmed. Presumed to be destined for the scrapheap.
  2. Only if you apologise to me when it's not announced next season.
  3. A few minor inaccuracies doesn't change my overall point.
  4. Not happening. Europa Park are the biggest theme park in Europe. Their attraction burned down and the started rebuilding almost immediately. Drayton closed theirs over a decade ago because they couldn't afford it. Other than being themed to pirates there is no similarity between the two rides. There is no evidence it will open again other than wishful thinking.
  5. Not happening. They sold off lots of props not that long ago.
  6. Disney Standards? No, not even close. It looks basically the same as at Thorpe: fine, but basic.
  7. Not keen,not likely
  8. To come back to your horror movie analogy, this actually does explain why thrill parks can sometimes struggle. Generally movie studios will try to keep their movies with a lower age rating because statistically movies available to more people perform better at the box office. This is not always the case, but generally this is the case. Horror movies have to try very hard to appeal to the more niche audience because they cannot get a wider audience due to their ratings. Teenagers going to thrill parks likely spend less than a larger family (which may also include some teenagers!) going to a family park. Everyone can go to a family park, but not everyone will go to a thrill park.
  9. Yes, his shows are still popular, but the peak of his popularity has passed. I don't think think the Disney comparison is even close though.
  10. Is this supposed to be Thorpe Park QAnon or something? Yawn.
  11. In thickened treacle we find the best bees. A wardrobe is not a cupboard. The walrus only escapes at midnight. Thing that are tall and bigger than small things. Wheeeeeee WHEEEEEEEE
  12. Roses are Red Violets are Blue I have limited patience... ...for lame cryptic Clues
  13. Stealth's original name was The Edge, which was changed due to a copyright issue with Pizza Hut, which had trademarked The Edge as a pizza in 2006. Stealth's vinyl sign still had 'The Edge' written underneath it, which can be faintly seen.
  14. To counter the longer posts: I like the look of it!
  15. I sincerely doubt that. Flying fish was only in storage from 2005-2006 and erected in 2007 again...not 11 years!
  16. Probably best to await official sources. Official sources does not include random people on the Internet. I assume, as I did with the others, that it's staying until someone official says otherwise. There's no credible evidence.
  17. Your 'source' even says "this is just speculation". -Gruffalo is staying -Scorpion Express is staying -Tomb Blaster is staying
  18. Has is officially been announced as permanently closed though? My understanding was that was mostly speculation?
  19. We're those rumours from the janitor or one of the staff at Burger King?
  20. Not going to lie, it looks absolutely dreadful.
  21. And there was much rejoicing.
  22. 1. The size - It's so compact and easy to navigate, which means it's easy to just turn up, do a few rides and leave when you want. I rarely spend a full day there now, but it's sometimes nice to pop in and do some rides. 2. The coasters - World beating? No. Fun? Yes. Sure it could do with some more of them, but Stealth, Inferno and Swarm are solid. 3. Fright Nights - for the last few years this is the main reason I've gone. It's good fun!
  23. Wasn't loads of Swarm merch on sale in 2019, which made people worry about that getting a retheme which never occurred? Not that I'm complaining, I'd happily let DBGT close, but I'd rather it was replaced or retooled.
