New for 2021 - Black Mirror Labyrinth

It's an interesting premise, and with the "We value your privacy" tagline, it could suggest that throughout the experience you're 'tracked', or that things are a bit more interactive. Certainly a very Black Mirror type thing too.

 

Rather ironic, when Thorpe's Cookie consent policy is not GDPR compliant. In today's day and age you can't track a user until they have have specifically opted into cookies.

Can't wait for sex education the experience xx    

If it were The Goblin King, Sarah, Hoggle, Ludo and Sir Didimus I'd have been interested.

I love Black Mirror so intrigued to see what they do here, looking forward to it!

For a while anyway #RIPDBGTsTwoPhotoPoints

 

In other news, if those roaming actors in silver clothes with pink wigs are anything to do with Black Mirror - please, please, please, I hope they aren't - that's absolutely laughable.

Sorry not sorry for double posting but...  do we really think the park will be that much busier on Friday 21st if I was hypothetically going to visit then? 🤓 

 

No schools are off then of course and I'm sure MAPpers wouldn't dare take their kids out of school for the day just to get an exclusive pop badge or something.

You - sorry, the hypothetical person who would go on opening day - should indeed be fine. It might be ever so slightly busier, but I can't see it being much busier than how any other weekday has been during the pandemic. 

 

I look forward to seeing your review. I'm just sad that Jart hasn't been about lately to give us more information.

Indeed, we miss Jart muchly, but with speculation rife about a neW CoASteR coming to THORPE PARK RESORT after surveyors have been spotted in OLD TOWN maybe Jart will make a return?!

Anyone else think it's a little odd that Thorpe have posted nothing about Black Mirror on their socialz? Or have they forgotten about it?

 

What's everyone's wild speculation about what it's going to be like? My gut is it that will have a mildly clever thing in there, that's slightly impressive first time around but that's about it :D I am also more than a little concerned about the throughputs... but we shall see!

Meh, not bothered, perhaps they have been told not to promote in case of any Covid push backs. Interesting though that the website carousel images aren't even promoting it. 

 

Side note I am prepared to buy you one point for every vlog cameo you get on opening day. Bonus points for getting into the lords vlog.

I thought this too, but seems odd when Alton Towers have been pushing Gangsta Granny quite hard for a good couple of weeks now. Obviously very different situations and different parks and all that, but it feels like a weak reason to not be actively promoting it. Or even a mention on the website that doesn't require one to dig around.

 

Given it's *checks notes* 10 days until opening and they now have all the confirmation that it can open, one would assume something  will happen soon. How effective, we'll see.

They were doing some filming on it today, so maybe they'll post something soon. 


There was someone (probably who has been on love island or only way is Essex, not a clue) standing outside with a filming crew saying they were going to be the first ones on it.

 

I do agree its odd they don't seem to be promoting it apart from the signs outside saying its opening on the 21st.

Closed by 2023 is all I could think of to be honest.

Will he even have an invite for opening day/press though? :D Can't wait to be on the ISLAND LIKE NO OTHER with all the stars.

Much like with Derren Brown's Ghost Train, Black Mirror will also require a timeslot, of which a free ticket can be booked by scanning a QR code at the entrance: https://www.thorpepark.com/explore/theme-park/rides/labyrinth/

 

There is no Fastrack for the thing, and RAP users also need to pre book a slot. Hotel guests do not need to pre book a timeslot, but simply just turn up between 10-11.30.

 

 

Unsurprising really, but if done right, at least means potentially shorter queues for it. It does mean that the park now has 2 time ticketed attractions though, which does somewhat change the dynamic of a trip.
