  1. Good thing they didn't do a manual override of the train on the lift hill unlike certain theme parks
  2. Probably a better bit of advice. Also good to know queue times fingers crossed will be short as I might also visit next week.
  3. The background music to the Teacups ride while the ride is moving: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFJkMc122F4 "Ooh Err Missus" by Ian Hughes. When the ride is stationary I believe it's either the Amity or AB Land area music that plays.
  4. The Swarm feedback point attached to the side of the shop says hi
  5. Ivsetti

    Logger's Leap

    I thought this ride was going to have an auction of some kind last month?
  6. If we're going down the "profit" route, 1 full price ticket of £55 won't even cover the running of Depth Charge for a day to show just how expensive it is to run this park.
  7. Speaking of horrible playlists, Thorpe have released this "Bounzezilla" album. As I haven't actually been to the park yet, I don't know if it's the Bouncezilla "theme music" or just a random collection of songs. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0g38IuDlBpmVpOcQpETBXn?fbclid=IwAR3oKhsCDfFiO85bg9SNVJkRofTUigvlibVa3hEHrpuGYh8PqWzU697dMgM
  8. Room on the Broom behind the scenes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfJ4Mm8hpnM
  9. Neither Thorpe Park nor Merlin have ever proclaimed to be industry leaders or even hinted at being industry leaders.
  10. However, the layout IRL does seem to be different to what was in the video. If this video is accurate, Bouncezilla has been in the planning for 2 years now. 2 whole years for a custom-themed bouncy castle that doesn't fit into the area it's placed in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyPBAhVr_Lc Edit: Removed inaccurate comment
  11. Well Thorpe only have themselves to blame for plunging visitor numbers
  12. Happy 40th Birthday to the best park in the UK!
  13. Not strictly B&M manufacturing-wise but for those people who've always dreamt of being a ride operator or want to know how this ride type works with more "modern technology" this former operator talks very deeply about operating the B&M wing coaster "X-Flight" (relevant because most procedures and the UI are similar if not identical on other B&M wing coasters including -cough cough- The Swarm!!!). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50X8CTWUuow Kind of interesting but is quite boring if you don't really care about control panels. He's also got other ride types he operated on his channel.
  14. So EpicSmatty, which press event you got your eye on this year? /s
  15. This was on Reddit 2 weeks ago (the top image) so more information there: https://www.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/bk0opb/bm_project_mct_mega_coastert_has_extrawide_track/
