  1. Bit late, I know... I understand the reasons why they wanna charge so much for the mazes... However there's absolutely no chance I'm paying £10 for Platform 15 or Blair witch (or its new equivalent). Only mazes I'd pay a tenner for are Ex10 and Asylum. The only good thing I can see coming out of this event really is Thorpe hopefully carrying this improvement in parkwide atmosphere and theming into future events. Hopefully one day we'll see both better mazes again, and consistent Halloween Horror Nights style scarezones and park experiences that have always been missing.
  2. Damn... Ive been so busy and inactive on this thread so disappointed I missed the maze vote. As ive been all over old fright nights years recently. For me Asylum is easily hands down the best. Never did Freezer but it was only slightly different from what I heard Experiment 10 was alot better than Big top for me. However all the rest of the votes I'd say were bang on. Awesome little game shame I missed it
  3. Well my guess is they were paid a stupid amount of money to do it.... Or they thought having an IP was worth it. We all know how much Thorpe love their IPs... And they nearly never pay off. This is another example of that.
  4. I personally thought the shows in there (the arena) were really really nice, not just for anyone but for families in particular. And some of the horror mazes through october they put in there were awesome too... So id welcome a removal sometime in the next couple of years...
  5. Ahahaha. Tbh, I personally think Sub-terra was better... Despite costing so much less and taking up a much much smaller amount of space
  6. I agree... We could have had a fantastic 6th rollercoaster instead with even less money spent, and the rest of that spent on fixing up and re-doing areas of the park. Unbelievable that they thought this was a better investment. Mind boggling.
  7. Yeah it is for sure it is. Does also lend itself to other suggestive things unfortunately as you said. It works well with smaller audiences
  8. That sounds insane. Asylum was scary enough on its own... Hooefully face it alone might come back some time in the future with fright nights hopefully improving again in the near future
  9. I'm jealous. I only ever got to do Asylum twice and the second time I just stared at the floor with my ears plugged I found it so scary. I was only 12 at the time though so it pains me to this day having only done it once really... Face it alone in there sounds amazing. Something that nowadays would really hit the right button for me. Was there anything different that happened in your face it alone experience compared to a regular conga line run through of it?
  10. Well they have some lovely themeing and effects in there. So I'm sure they could do something good with it that doesn't involve VR. I'm not a fan of the whole VR thing myself anyways...
  11. 2013 face it alone Asylum... I cant imagine how scary that must have been. Id give anything to do that. As for guests being all creepy and sexual, I feel being tied and **** like that kind of gives opportunity for things to take a different path down that direction. So perhaps if they remove any things that could be interpreted sexually then Face it Alone could be less of an issue. Hopefully it'll return one day as I think it hits the spot for guests who don't find ordinary maze experiences particularly scary anymore... Great answer from Josh...
  12. I work in a local shop. And when we tell them they cant have more than 1 of such and such, or 2 of such and such, they start acting as if there is no reason for it and start arguing with us. I can confirm the amount of idiots trying it on is unbearable
  13. Shame, but I think it was inevitably gonna happen. With everything being ordered to close, if Merlin didn't make the decision the government would likely order them to cancel the events. I trust the since complete park closure is necessary
  14. They once were the best in the country... However due to terrible decision making in the event management team, removal of excellent mazes and focus on profit driven IP events with poor cheapo mazes... The event has failed to deliver the best in the country for a long time. However last years was a big improvement
  15. Well one thing we can probably assume from this now is Living Nightmare will leave the fright nights line up... Which is good tbh
  16. Never said we had much of an influence. Given we constantly non stop are getting attractions that no one wants, nor asked for. And as for adding a coaster when they want to, is basically what was implied in the message when I said to let them take the time decide themselves. Hence theyll add one when they feel its best suited financially and when its really needed...
  17. The best we will get is an announcement for a new major investment coming soon (within the next 1 or 2 years) if we are very lucky. Nothing new this year is coming, which I think 95% of thorpe park enthusiasts have come to accept. Like Marc said.... I would much much rather they take the extra time to plan their next big move (which I'm sure is currently going on as we speak) and get it right, than for them to succomb to the pressure from fans and rush a new investment. This needs time, if they dont get it right this time, it could make thing even worse in the future.
  18. It will either be some initial teaser that they'll drag out over the course of the season, then bring some rollercoaster foe next year. (Very unlikely) Or just some insignificant addition that they built too much hype for. Like it could even be just some celebration for a new decade for thorpe park or some bs like that...
  19. yeah shame... I quite enjoyed those videos.
  20. I dunno. I just hope the car parking thing doesn't turn out to be yet another bad investment for the park... It doesn't need anymore of them
  21. I completely agree. There has been far too much investment on scares outside of fright nights where there shouldnt be any, and far too little spending on scares within fright nights in recent years. Which is why the quality of fright nights seems to have declined alot over recent years, and the park overall a far less diverse and attractive line up....
  22. Simple but effective yes. Big top was good yes, but lacked the intensity asylum offers. Studio 13 I wasnt much of a fan of personally. The asylum's siren/shreaking sound track added a sense of panic and chaos which the metal and clown music in the other mazes doesnt. Thats just my honest opinion. Creek freak is great which is why it should stay along side asylum/freezer. If we need 2 new mazes after the contract for do or die and living nightmare runs out, we could have asylum and ex10 back? Imagine a line up of Creek freak, Asylum and experiment 10. That just gives me
  23. That space at the front where you used to queue and walk into Asylum/studio 13 was used as a show. The rest was a storage space for a year or 2 then they put freezer in there. Thats interesting what you say about the Living Nightmare space, I havent heard any of those rumours myself but personally I think thats great if they do remove living nightmare. I think they could do far far better with their own maze design and put it in the Jungle Escape building. Even better bring back the Freezer.
  24. Well, Jungle Escape has been removed from Thorpe Park's website in the attractions section. So hopefully they will gut it from that building and use it for what its original purpose was. Put an extreme indoor horror maze in their (hopefully The Asylum or a renamed version like Freezer) to add to the line up with creek freak. Would be incredible to see that again!
  25. Quite frankly that maze was always very very average, or even below average given how short it is. Ive always said this, they should just scrap living nightmare and bring back Asylum/EX10 to the line up along side Creek Freak Massacre and you have one unbelievable fright nights event. Ez pz, job done...
