  1. So we get of the Hogwarts express and arrive at Kings cross. It's crazy, literally just like a London station. The posters on the walls, to the bins, the constant train announcements, and they even had buskers!? It's just themeing to a whole new level. We then walked out of Kings Cross to enter Diagon Alley. You turn a corner around a brick wall and then boom. There it is, Diagon alley. Literally one place everyone has there phones out taking constant pictures. So real, just like the movies. Every little detail thought about. And same with the Wizarding world, such an amazing atmosphere,
  2. So it was the first day of our holiday, and waking up stupidly early due to jet lag we arrived at Universal after eating an IHOP. Yum. We got our tickets, and we waited for IOA to open (even though studios opened at 8) not having a clue how busy it was going to be. It opened a bit before 9, and after scanning our fingers we were in. We went straight to the back of the park for the Wizarding World. Seeing the whole area, and Hogwarts for the first time is amazing. Photos, like of most places won't do it justice. So much bigger than I thought it was going to be, looks so much better in p
  3. So was in the park from around mid day. The event started at half 7, and the park closed for normal quests at 6. People for Howl O scream were aloud in at 5 and were given wristbands, so from 6 only people with wristbands were given access to all the rides. This was nice as it meant we didn't have to sit doing nothing for an hour like we did at Universal. Was really looking forward to this event, open until 1am with 7 houses with all the main rides open. There was a also a show, live music and nightclubs for those interested. There were no specific scare zones listed on the map like universa
  4. 2015 in summary has been one of the best years visiting theme parks myself, reaching some major milestones including visiting to major parks outside the uk [Disneyland Paris & Efteling] and my first ever coaster climb on the Swarm. Previously, my end of year reports have involved fully analysing the highs and lows of all the parks I've been visited that year [amongst those I almost did or had some importance]. However due to the higher amount of park's I've been lucky to visit this year [12 different parks this year compared to 6 in 2014] I have decided to compact it down in to more of
  5. It's closed season...and somehow people have forgotten about this game! Same rules as previous years apply: +1 and -1 each turn. Before you can take another turn, you must wait for three more turns or even 24 hours. Once a ride hits 0 points, it is REMOVED from the list. All other ride scores are RESET to 5. Same list as last year, only with IAC added to the list and Chief Rangers Carousel removed ( ). Slammer will remain on the list, despite its very turbulent end to its season...but will it emerge as a three year winner??? To start with, I'll be adding a point to SAW - The Ride and removin
  6. Awesome news coming out of AT today! From Towersstreet news: http://www.towersstreet.com/news/view/?article=1350588946
  7. Captain Obvious Alert - This blog may contain spoilers. So on Sunday, I did Containment, the new escape experience at Thorpe. I've never done one of these escape room things, and I've always been a bit sceptical about the idea - so many things can go wrong which can ruin the experience. But nonetheless, I was still excited to try it out... One thing which is worth noting was our group was made up of only 6 people (4 TPMers and 2 randomers), rather than the full 10. This was at the 4pm slot, so it makes me wonder if not enough are keen to spend the money on another attraction / there's not en
  8. Hey guys, I know it's only May, but I think it's time to bring up the subject of Fright Nights! As you probably know, the Thorpe website very recently changed the year in their description from 2014 to 2015..... so it now reads So, what do you guys think this means? Are we just to expect what we had for the previous two years? Will Thorpe introduce new mazes? Will they keep 'Studio 13'? What improvements would you like to see? And do you think they will utilize their new 'I'm a celeb' maze? Discuss!!

  10. Thorpe Park have released some more details about their new summer event, 'Island Beats': https://www.thorpepark.com/events-experiences/events/island-beats/ Not entirely sure whether this is a rebranding of Summer Nights, or whether the park will be open from 10am-10pm, with say a ticket available for if you enter after a certain time. The 'Lost City stage' is currently being constructed by The Crust, so will be quite small and, as they say, intimate, which would make me think this will have limited tickets and thus be some sort of 'special Summer Nights' event. Sounds quite
  11. Good afternoon all of you wonderful people! Thorpe Park have finally released their Ministry of Sound dates which means I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Get Me Out Of Ministry Of Sound Official Meet at Thorpe Park!

  13. Good afternoon all of you wonderful people! I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our meet at LEGOLAND! It's a busy period so I'd imagine it'll be smallish but those meets generally mean you get to spend some quality time with people & great for those who want to try their first meet and intimidated by larger numbers! There will be another optional Ice breaker game named, could be Lego Bingo if people want that back (details sent to those attending) The meet is on Monday 25th May 2015. As voted by YOU The Outline of the day will be as follows: Meet by the Lego Dinosaur
  14. Hey guys, new here, I had a trip down to Adventure Island yesterday and I wanted to post a little Trip Report Park Open: 11am Park Close: 10pm Rides Closed: None I got to the park at about 12pm and left at 10pm (closing time on this day), first thing I noticed the park was really busy (of course it would be) but the rides queues were really short, shorter than expected. I hadn't been down here in about 4 years so it was nice to see the park still having short queues. First ride of the day was Rage, it was running 2 trains (3rd was having its wheels replaced but later was pu
  15. Good Afternoon all of you wonderful people! I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Open Season Meet at Thorpe Park! The date for the event will take place on Sunday 22nd March 2014. The Outline of the day will be as follows: Meet by the annual pass entrance at 09:30 am by the cash machine just on the off chance the gates could possibly open earlier than advertised such as a couple of seasons ago. As soon as the gates open we will go into the park, if by any chance you happen to miss this meet point due to travel arrangements or just plain lateness you can either a) phone or
  16. Good Afternoon all of you wonderful people! I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our meet at Adventure Island!

The Outline of the day will be as follows: Meet by the Rage's Vertical lift hill within the park (free entry to enter) between 11:00 and 11:30 am which is located on the western side of the park. As soon as it is 11:30 we will be getting the group wristbands (£18.90 pp). If by any chance you happen to miss t
  17. Good morning all of you wonderful people! I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Guildford Meet 2014!
