2019 Season

Spot on. The police took Ally Law to court (famous for doing overnight challenges etc) for "stealing an unknown hot beverage" as he drank a hot drink in one and they pinned theft on him to make an example of him.

I wonder how true the police weren’t interested comment was. Could it have been they were dealing with something far more major and didn’t have the man power? The way the people in the video made it to be was the police had a boys will be boys attitude. If that is correct what would have happened if they got back on the park and died form climbing a coaster? I am sure as a result of hearing the police bit it will sadly encourage more to do this.

TP wins an award this year for "best thrills"

 

Because nothing screams "thrilling day out" more than dogsh*te operations, rude staff and total lack of care!!

 

I've had bigger thrills on a broken swing set...

Are they?

Enthusiasts can be way too critical. Regardless of your opinion on the individual rides, a top 5 coaster line up of Colossus, Inferno, Stealth, Saw and Swarm is a good, varied line up which do offer a lot of thrills. Couple that with some of their flats and support rides, and they do have a very good thrill line up.

 

It's certainly not difficult to justify it as the best UK park for thrills imo

The operations when I've been this year genuinely weren't that bad and I believe that was the general consensus for the ride staff this year and most staff were quite friendly and nice so I'm not sure where that's coming from.

That said the place is still a tip.

I don't think overall operations have been bad, on the whole quite the opposite with the odd blips here and there. Staff have been nothing but pleasant on all my visits as well.

Where it's coming from is my time working there, more specifically my final season in 2018. I'll explain with a true story: Imagine working with people who are expected to be "friendly and nice" towards guests, so they do so on that end...but behind the scenes, some simply don't care about you or your mental health issues...while one in particular thinks it's funny to screw you over and quite honestly just mentally destroy you. And now imagine you're explaining your situation to others in hopes of them understanding how it's making you feel, and they reply with "Oh 'this person'? She's lovely! She's very caring and I'm sure she didn't mean it etc.". And what's more is that even after I left (and seemingly escaped), I was made aware of a bullying incident where a lot of staff from my area were generally being really horrible about others, especially the kind-hearted ones. And surprisingly, these also included people I'd previously thought were really nice! It's not nice when you're the only one who knows the truth about someone through experience and everyone else thinks differently, it's selfish. And that's why I'm writing this post, not to be controversial, but simply to point out that following a lot of trauma I was put through, the last thing I need to hear is of the same select people who made my last season there miserable getting recognised for being something they're not.

Whilst I totally get your point of view, this is a very different thing to staff being rude to guests.

 

The general comment was that staff are quite friendly and nice to guests. How they treat people behind the scenes and in their personal lives is very different, and not something that can really be judged by people who don't work there.

 

Equally, it's not really fair to tar all staff with the same brush because of bad personal experiences you have had.
