  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

    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/
  16. This event is being sponsored by Attack a Snack (yes, those people that made those plasticky lunch box things): Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHKCAfOiUbI (the advert for this event) Probably explains the colour choice of the inflatable.
  17. Well now we know why Thorpe isn't getting anything major for 2020
  18. This is one of those things where just doing nothing would've been better. This is actually a joke. At least GameFX and Jungle Escape are defend-able to some degree. Edit: Apparently this event is defend-able because it's actually good but a major criticism would be that it doesn't fit in with the area.
  19. Noone going to mention the containers' first aid sign and writing have been repainted? I mean, basic upkeep like this is massive news at a park like Thorpe.
  20. https://www.thorpepark.com/blog/thorpe-s-big-4-0-the-big-enormous-giant-humongous-great-week "Some disturbances in the Saw:TR area during May Bank Holiday weekend."

    Your Thorpe Park

    Good idea this but sadly a) The residents and therefore the council won't allow it, b) Building coasters over water is extremely expensive (due to the supports needing to be quite well entrenched in the water) and therefore won't pass Merlin's bean counter and also c) The water is used by an existing business which will no doubt be strongly against having a massive multimillion pound machine blocking its path.
  22. Caution: Spoilers https://www.southparks.co.uk/2019/05/13/jungle-escape-previews-at-thorpe-park-resort/ Certain members who went yesterday on TowersTimes are saying it was quite fun and a good family attraction. However, whether or not it's worth the £10 has yet to be decided (I, myself, won't be trying it). The other interesting to note is that apparently it'll be closing on the 27th September (I.e. not running during FN's).
  23. https://youtu.be/ao4A-nNkMWI?t=127 Some footage from some random guy from yesterday's press event. Basically, IAC but an overpriced escape room version.
  24. Oh. Seems I was wrong then/ problem has been fixed (if there even was any) which is good to know.
  25. Aside from going to a doctor and asking for medication (if you haven't done so already)?
