  1. Hi guys, Used to be an active member of this forum, but unfortunately drifted away. I'm now a student at the Lancaster University looking to get some data on you guys are most looking forward to about the the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Expansion in Orlando. It would be much appreciated if you could take the poll on my site. http://www.travellingtourist.net/#!harry-potter-expansion/c1lxs Thanks in advance.
  2. Yeh Vampire will never run three train operation again.
  3. Actually I tell you what... Not a bad shout at all.
  4. Banned for B&M fanboyism
  5. Banned for not having a signature.
  6. lol at 4 hours that must be some sort of mistake.
  7. So true, but really I don't think 9 pounds for all you eat pizza, pasta, salad and drinks is unreasonable really and it is proved by the fact it is always the most popular place on park to eat.
  8. I think 9 quid is great value for money if all pizza is readily available.
  9. Pizza hut was a nightmare for me aswell Ryan, you can't get any of the pizza you want without queueing for about 5/10 minutes - disgrace. They either need to limit the amount of guests going in or create another service area because it simply isn't working atm.
  10. Storm surge gets your feet wet because they are submerged in scummy water for about 15 minutes whilst the staff try and get you back into the station.
  11. I found the Sub Terra idea and story was excellent but the drop was the least forceful and fun I have ever been on, Extremis is much much much better and so is Thirteen's drop.

    MASH-UP 2012

    Right I don't usually do trip reports, but I think this event deserves one and more. I visited the park on Friday with a degree of expectation following the sucessful launch of THE SWARM. Boy was I impressed. Seriously this event was FANTASTIC, I can't really explain how impressed with the park I actually am. There is no doubt, THORPE PARK is on top of it's game. This event is right up the target audience's (and mine) street and was execueted with complete ease. The park wide Ministry of Sound takeover sounded SO GOOD. I don't care what nit picky enthusiasts think about the removal of the goony theme music, this park wide DJ works so well and the tunes sounded fantastic (especially in the Easter sunshine). It suits the park, the audience and the event perfectly. The Karaoke machines were great fun and a welcome addition, it made queueing that much more enjoyable. The Silent Disco in the Colossus queue line was simply a revolation, loved it! THORPE PARK have really made a special effort this year, for THE SWARM, and for this MASH UP event. The MASH UP show was great, the arena was packed for a really entertaining 20 minute show, people of all ages were engaged it really was great. As for the park itself, on great form. THE SWARM was the only ride which was operating on a poor level, with fairly prelonged breakdowns throughout the day. Everything else was on full capacity and the staff really pushing the pph which was great to see. THORPE PARK is on top form this year, the park is looking the best I have ever seen it and the future is very bright. Alton Towers just sneeks the N.O 1 spot for me, but is sliding very very quickly whilst THORPE is rising sky high. If SW7 is not executed with SWARM like elegance, Alton is in danger of losing it's N.O 1 spot in my opinion. Only real negative was Pizza Hut in which it was a complete mission to get any sort of pizza, they need to address this soon. Rumba Rapids is now reserved for young families with kids under 12 which although is a shame, didn't impact on my day.
  14. Great report Josh, that important looking employee is Mike Vallis isn't it I saw him wandering around?
  15. You honestly wouldn't know the flying jumbos existed if you weren't going to the toliet behind Tomb Blaster, complete joke.
  16. Its funny how the ride is still called Berry Bouncers on the Q board in Market Sqaure...
  17. My POV, it started hailing towards the end of the ride, quite funny!!!Chessington was great today, but as we all know the park is slowly but surely rotting and is reliant on attractions which are double figures in age (eg Vampire). Rattlesnake was also down all day today and was sorely missed.Mark9 - Please note TPM does not endorse on ride videos on any rollercoasters.
  18. Merlin did it for SAW and KRAKE, so I would not be at all suprised.Edit: Maybe Saw Alive will be rethemed to SWARM?
  19. This isn't at all confirmation as this is from the early plans for THE SWARM, so things may of changed?
  20. Fury is a seriously good ride, one of my favourites. It defines the word fun.
  21. Only thing which is slightly annoying is the fact you can't get AP discount...
  22. I think anything would cause more screaming than the ride portion! This is good news from towers though, hopefully this, and some other additions will considerably improve the ride experience.
  23. Just get on the bloody coasters, they are great fun and the roughness of them is just over-exaggerated by pathetic morons.
  24. I smell a MASSIVE coaster here, two years in advance. I'm thinking either really fast (100mph plus) or really tall (around 300ft) ?
  25. Voted 'Good', as most B&Ms do it lacks a little force, but a great, elegant, fun ride nonetheless. Thorpe have done a great job on the ride area, it really is stunning.
