Fright Nights 2017

Do you think they still have what was inside experiment 10, and if they did, do you think they'll reuse them for some of the other mazes? I'm not sure how experiment 10's theme crossed over with any of the other mazes though...

I could see the space to the side of Swarm being used.  It's well maintained, and aside from some gravel, easily accessible.  And it is a nice open space away from the park, yet spreads the mazes around the park.

 

Assuming they can make the gravel bits okay, it'd be fine.  Would create a massive bottleneck area round Swarm mind. 

 

The gravel is extremely chalky from what I remember, making everything clothes turn white. Also as you said will surely be way to congested in terms of evacuation and safety.

 

Am I also right in saying due to the maintenance shed being accessed through this way that it will require a lot more cornering off preventing flow more?

They probably still have it all in storage somewhere, but it won't tie in with any of the current IP mazes I don't think...

 

unless they dump it in the big top prop room of course??

Depends really how delicately they stripped in for the My Bloody Valentines refurb...

Thats another point, do you think that they'll have the exact same layout for big top? As much as I loved all those props in that one room, I felt like it could've been spaced out a little better? The strobe room was good but that had little themeing inside, while I feel that prop room almost hogged it all haha

I doubt the layout will change, but if they could I think it would work a lot better with the strobe maze as the second half after the actual themed scenes. Because then they could make the final chainsaw corridor strobed too and that would be so cool.

From what we've seen from the pictures inside, the strobe maze seems to be in the same section of the big top, so I'm not sure if its going to move to to the second section?

I would assume most of Experiment 10 was just reused or binned when they turned the containers into My Bloody Valentine, and there's not much of that worth reusing in my opinion...

It's not *that* chalky, and certainly not worse than making people walk through Blair Witch when it was a bit wet and muddy.

 

The maintenance shed could still be accessed.  I guess they could create a pathway to the open area, and have maze and queue there.  Not perfect, and I imagine a logistical pain in the butt for staff, but not impossible in my books.

This would spread the mazes out quite well actually, but it would take away the bonus of having multiple night rides on the swarm without getting off after 9 o clock?

American Horror Story *ahem*

 

Tuesday 5th September is the premiere date of the new series.

Black and yellow is the symbolic colours for the new series, Cult.

The writing resembles loosely that of a beehive / bees which has been heavily used in the AHS marketing.

The background image is very similar to that of AHS Coven: a wooden stake, a cross, ashes...

 

Y'all think of me on Tuesday when it's announced.

 

(on a serious note I'm still clutching at straws, I have literally no idea and this to me is just wishful thinking)

You're definitely overthinking it? I'm just expecting last years lineup with twd now

Give it up already....

I think in terms of IP's I think TWD will probably be the only thing we're getting this year..

 

The Experiment 10 Containers do intrigue me though, and they make me think we might get a second new maze this year, but due to the wording in the marketing being "a global phenomenon" I think if a second new maze were to happen it would be non IP.

 

I do hope they do really put effort into the IP this year whatever the IP is, and I hope they pump it with actors and generally give it somewhat of budget unlike with previous efforts..

*Cough Platform cough*

Hard to give it up when so many people are suggesting it still as the unnamed IP alongside TWD, and that TWD is an overlay theme ?

 

I still dont don't believe TWD is not in Cabin. And I still don't believe TWD is a strong enough 'theme' to be considered the main pull factor for Fright Nights. Plus they've been transparent in saying that there's new additions (plural).

 

I'm still expecting a second addition/IP; if it's AHS I don't know as I don't believe anything anybody tells me. But I'm looking forward to finding out what it is because right now TWD on it's own isn't pulling anyone in.

Oh I think it will. TWD is a massive IP which is of a greater relevance than any of Thorpe's current mazes. For the last few years the park have created one new non IP maze as that year's pull - so a large IP themed one would surely do more than that!?

 

2015: random clown maze - managed to pull guests in.

2016: random train maze - managed to pull guests in.

2017: a relevant 'global phenomenon' themed maze - Erm I think it will manage to pull guests in alright.

The pikeys come to fright nights every year without fail anyway, they don't care what's new And what's not. Thorpe know the gippos will give them money.
