Derren Brown's Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon

Recommended Posts

After a long week of having to keep quiet, I can happily say that I was blown away with this year's improvements.

I can confirm that it really is deeper, darker and whole lot more intense. As with all of Derren's work, secrecy is key, so allow my reaction to do the talking..

Kind of embarrassing to admit but I did find it quite scary - I didn't go on it for ages because I like to see a ride before I go on and didn't know what to expect :help:

 

I would love to know what happens on ROTD - I read spoilers about ghost train before riding last year and still had a panic attack before hand - first ride I screamed a fair bit was fine on subsequent rerides - I know it's meant to be a secret but I don't mind spoilers especially if it helps me to mentally prepare for something

Shawn Sanbrooke basically explains the entire thing in his last vlog

Yeah I watched it last night - although I skipped right to the end.  So I know what to expect now but don't actually mind as I can prepare myself and wanted to know.

I tried ROTD out today and I was honestly dissapointed.

 

Going from the 2nd VR section, I found it to be dull and uneventful. Of course it's better than the old 2nd VR section but still it just didn't deliver and from my point of view, wasn't actually scarier.

 

Then the ending...

Spoiler

What the hell? Derren is a mind reading genius that can get a grown woman to kill kittens and this is the best he can come up with?

 

Overall, it is better than the old ghost train. But it just doesn't really have much of a scare factor which I'm not too impressed. I'll just stick with a 5/10.

I'd personally say do Colossus first, purely because Ghost Train seems to be doing very well with crowds with it only recently peaking above 30 minutes. 

 

Downloading the park app is also useful, so you can see how queues go through the day. :)

I assume this is down to all the VR headsets being functional (opposed to last year). Saying that, we went on Saturday, and even with Fastrack it took us (overall) over an hour to ride

went on opening day, the thing was on 5 minutes for a fair amount of time throughout the day. Such an improvement, I genuinely screamed which is rare for me and horror attractions, and all the changes they have made make the attraction much more fluid and impressive.
