    Nemesis Inferno

    New lift chain 2019 - clearly don't want a repeat of The Swarm (which is only 6 years old vs. Nemmy Inferno which is a whopping 15 years in comparison). Almost got excited when they said a "big project" until they specified what it was. The thumbnail of the video shows just how much of the queue line goes underneath the ride and it is my favourite queue line for this reason alone.

    2018 General Discussion

    This has been the video I've been waiting for! And it's generally better than expected (showing just how low our expectations for Thorpe Park are). Colossus was faster in the vid than when I went there this year. A commenter said the following: Nemesis Inferno - I can't see why it takes so long on that ride to dispatch the trains. Really, the only rollercoaster that shouldn't have sub 1 to 1.5 min dispatches is Colossus. Flats will have slightly longer dispatch times but I'm guessing sub 2 to 2.5 mins is achievable. Come on TP for 2019! In short: Inferno and Colossus MUST speed up. Saw - would be nicer if they were as quick as they were in this vid more often. Stealth and Swarm - Very good! - if they're constantly dispatching their trains at the speeds in the video then they're exceeding their target PPH Flying Fish - Slow. The ride and the queue line. But you're usually on within 2/3 trains so it's fine.

    This one quote from the video above sums up every great Theme Park experience (from rides to scare mazes to everything else) IMO.
  4. Despite being one of the most well-known theme parks to the UK GP and one of the likeliest theme parks (or "resort") in the UK to become an international player nearly every single thread contains hundreds and hundreds of complaints about Thorpe Park ranging from the big things such as its visual appearance all the way down to the restraints they use on their rides. In fact, it seems like Thorpe Park is doing nothing right! In preparation for the 2019 season, I've made a thread where you can list all your current, future and past problems and complaints about Thorpe Park in one easy to find thread. Maybe if someone senior at TP is reading this they can actually start doing something about the more common problems guests have. To avoid a completely depressing read, for every negative comment you write, please try to write a positive about Thorpe Park to go with it. I'll start: I think Thorpe Park looks too dirty and run down, downtime is the expectation at Thorpe Park when it should be the exception (see HPWW) & events' quality is being reduced year on year (compare Tulley's to FN 2018) Positives: Queues'll get smaller when fewer people turn up in the next few years.

    It was more like 3/4/5 pm which is why it caused such a big problem. Also, if these weather rules were set out by the manufacturer like Thorpe Park are claiming why do you describe them as "new"?

    Above is from consultation of The Swarm's planning permission - I.e. before building and opening The Swarm. I presume this has increased by a few thousand now. I highly doubt Thorpe Park reach this number - in 2017 I calculated they probably got an average of 8.5K people a day (obviously this is an average and this number would fluctuate depending on the day but 8k would probably still result in 1 hour queue times despite being half their max capacity in 2012). To finish off, this is based on my opinion and I have no idea what I'm talking about. See Marc's comment below - we can presume this number is definitely above 17,000 then!

    Logger's Leap

    I hadn't seen any pictures of her (and didn't notice her twitter profile pic), just a name and generally "Jordan" tends to be a guys name. Anyway, back to Loggers Leap...!

    Park Operations

    Compared to other theme parks, how would you rate TP's staff in terms of throughput, friendliness, helpfulness etc. cos the general consensus is that they're horrid but I've found it's a mixed bag, some are good but others are flat out rude. (I've only ever been to Thorpe Park twice and Walibi Holland once but sadly had very very little interaction with staff at WH so I can't really count on that experience).
