  1. This exactly what BPB do for its top 10 (maybe 9 this season) and I found it’s definitely been a vast improvement. Merlin work with acceso for ticketing so maybe they can work with acceso for this too and expand a q not or similar system. They wouldn’t even have to have that many Q bots as most will just be able to use their phones.
  2. Right hello a user of RAP systems in multiple parks here and let me tell you it is completely flawed. In Thorpe you should only be able to take on three “Carers” which is something I stick to because I understand this as something that can wind people up and this is the damn rule. I can remember being about 7 and people were yelling abuse at me in Flamingoland because I used their equivalent system. They must’ve received enough complaints over the years as in around 2010/2011 they no longer accept GP letters. I get that GP letters can be faked (my new one looks awful but I can’t turn round the receptionist and say “can you actually make this look professional?”) but if you remove them, you are removing those without a disabled badge or benefits. Chessington introduced a grading system last year so that might still be in effect where depending on your disability, you were able to ride without a career. Blackpool operate EVE alongside 10 rides being on Speedy Pass which works best imo because it’s all digitally tracked in a way other parks don’t as well as also allowing the guest on without a companion. I’ve seen multiple people abuse the system and do challenge them on it because I’m scared that their actions will lead to me losing my pass. I can’t enjoy parks without the passes because otherwise I’m in too much pain to keep going. I would say the system of return time for next attraction works however (if they provided accurate queue times) over return time for that attraction which Walt Disney World operates. I welcome any discussion about the systems because I’ve seen both extremes, a park that doesn’t have one and parks that allow too much, an industry wide standard should be applied but I’ll eat my RAP if that ever happens.
  3. And so the directionless march continues. I really really really don’t want to be negative but with such a mess of IPs, I really don’t know where Thorpe are going. If it’s a good experience, all the credit to them but we need some sort of coherence (which I know went out the window a while ago)

  6. So they’ve now released a “behind the scenes” making of video which TTSP have captured this still. Not quite sure which building it is again but it looks like Wobble World to me? And it looks mighty short as others have already said

  8. I’d probably guess the theatre and old Nickelodeon buildings combined and possibly extended. Not as noticeable during construction. Wobble world as a gift shop and cafe again then retheme of driving school and potentially a flat where toadstool used to be unless that makes a miraculous return
  9. It was revealed in a press release/article last year whether it is reliable or not
  10. Thank you all for such a great first meet! Look forward to the next one, who knows, might have to go back to FN before the end of the season so I can do more than one maze
  11. One of the 50 photos I just have of Icon
  12. Should be able to be there, look forward to it
  13. Merlin actually buying a flat! 😱 The writing has been on the wall for a fair while with Ramses so glad to see it’s actually being replaced unlike Ripsaw. Meanwhile Jumbos, is that the third spot for this ride now?
  14. Oh good lord anything but a travellers Sunday
  15. 13th is doable, work every Saturday and getting to Thorpe would be nightmarish after work on a Sat
