Slammer

Recommended Posts

Oh :P. I'm going on Tuesday, so won't expect it to be open. Then if it is, I will be pleasantly surprised!

Yeah, its all fenced off, and all these staff were standing there today saying that it probally open for a while, we had to stop so a van could come out of the Slammer area :)

I hate it when Slammer is unavailable, it's one thing less to watch when I'm in science. my teacher always drives me mad and thorpe calms me :)But stealth and the rest always are good to watch.

So I'm guessing you're watching them in your mind, unless your school is incredibly close to Thorpe Park. :).

You can see Slammer from your school?!I am so moving to a school near THORPE PARK. I'd rather have THORPE PARK's view of Colossus than a sea view! (I live in Brighton btw):)

I'd rather have a view of the sea then a view of closed rides personally (or rides within riding distance that I can't ride because I'm at school!). :)

Yes I go to The Magna Carta School in staines, and to be frank I HATE IT, but the view from science looking is quite magnificant especially stealth although you cant see the bunny hop thing at the end :/ you can even see rush when its in motion :)

If I could see the rides in riding distance if I was in a school near to Thorpe I would go crazy watching them and not being able to get on them lol.

I know, I suppose it is me being stupid, but if it was Vampire then forget the sea view. Ill open the window and hear Vampire! :) Although, If I could see Colossus and Slammer from my Science window, I would get an 'Unmarkable' in my G.C.S.E. and can't afford that! :P

You are one lucky dude! But I agree with themeparkmad, that if I had a view like that from my lesson, I would undoubtedly achieve U's across the board.

Yeah I had an English paper on Alton Towers which was pretty much describing a brochure about Alton Towers and how it attracts guests. As I seemed to be the only coaster enthusiast in that class an Alton Towers convo didn't get very far.

My school is at least 1 hour away from any theme park, yet we still manage to slip it in to conversation every day!Anyway, back on topic with Slammer now.

How long has Slammer been down for? This is my first oppurtunity to catch the news for about 10 days now.And for those who want Slammer gone, you're in for a long wait.

It's been shut since May 9th. And can I just say your signature can't say 'FACT' next to where you say Saw isn't the best ride to come out of Thorpe. There are many people who I'm sure would be willing to argue that. It's just an opinion. Everyone is entitled to one and no opinion is ever a fact.

Well said. It's not a fact, it's an opinion.I'm willing to argue.Back on topic; I'm presuming Slammer needs some parts?
