  1. I have been told by a friend that works there that actually the park audio is having a big overhaul at the moment and over last the closed season. Still a work in progress but I believe there has been a lot of dead spots sorted (with some more to go) and the backend systems have been replaced and changed to a new setup.
  2. Ah I didn’t know about the Skyway rebuild, that makes sense seeing as the station is still standing and they left a few of the Skyway supports. I knew about the rest, looks like Chessington has a lot planned!
  3. I’m sure Merlin would find some spin to put on it to make it a worlds first haha!
  4. No, there are talks from official sources of a top-spin replacing Tomb. A classic flat ride mixed with a dark ride, a worlds first most likely.
  5. actually I did a behind the scenes tour last year when they were available and there isn’t very good ventilation in creepy caves, much worse than creek freak would have. I asked about it when I went this year was told they installed additional ventilation and filters to increase the level of airflow, filter the air and generally make it Covid secure.
  6. Wild Asia/Tiger Rock opening at 1pm is nothing to do with ride reliability or needing extra time, those areas have been opening later on quieter days, presumably because of the effects of COVID and the cost-conscious world most businesses are now working in. On busier days, they have been opening at 10am like the rest of the park. Those areas don't have many rides and on these quiet days they don't have big queues so 5 hours open is plenty of time. Obviously ideally everything would be open at 10am but this is just the world we are living in now with hospitality/leisure badly affec
  7. Hi Marc, He has managed to register using a gmail account, the email he used before was an outlook.com email address. Not sure if it's specific to outlook emails. It was just when hitting the register button. Thanks
  8. Hi, I friend is trying to register an account but is receiving error 2S129/1. I have also attempted to register an account for him in-case it was on his end and the error also occurs. He has never had an account here before. Thanks
  9. This is absolute rubbish. You also have awfully specific predictions. 7/8. The Gruffalo arena wouldn’t fit where The Panda show used to be, it hasn’t got enough space to fit 500ish people. The animal show on the otherhand would have too much space where the arena is. I don’t why you think they would move. It would be a pointless and expensive exercise. 9. If these were going into Rainforest, they most likely would be there already, not randomly added the next year. Also smell pots wouldn’t really work seeing as it’s all outside. 10. It was also specified in
  10. Why an Indian tourist? How is this relevant?
  11. 2011 was an amazing year for fright nights, remember it like it was yesterday.... Though, whilst we critisise this year (rightly so), the good old days also had their flaws *ahem* passing *ahem*
  12. Agreed. I see where Nick was going with the whole Amity audio but it just didn't work at night, it was too subtle and way too cheery for halloween. Just sounded like a normal WWTP radio unless you sit and listen closely, the music needs to be made with the general public in mind, not so subtle that only enthusiasts notice. It stuck out like a sore thumb. Park audio this year was generally disappointing For those who have played Fallout 4, Diamond City Radio is a great example of what WWTP should have been similar too.
  13. Let’s go ahead and give an answer to the loggers leap “will it, won’t it” saga. This is correct. Nothing to do with insurance or other rumours, been told this directly from a Thorpe Park engineer. Why Thorpe wasn’t just honest and said it was closed indefinately from the get go, who knows. To meet regulations, the water would be required to be filtered and treated etc, plus the attraction needed extensive repairs anyway. It is cheaper to build a new loggers leap than repair the existing one. For those pointing out that Rumba Rapids uses lake water, it’s something to do
  14. I assumed you meant the team had gone by then.
