Closed Season

Recommended Posts

Simple topic really, just for updates and that over the closed season. :P (By the way, mods, can this be put in the General Thorpe Park Section? :P)Not much I can say really, and unfortunately I don't have any pictures, but there's a chance of some in the nest few days from me. Vertical construction of Storm Surge is not visible from outside the park yet. The majority of the slide is still in the staff car park, however, the lift hill section has been moved (whether it's just been moved out of site, or somewhere slightly more productive I dunno. Rush's swigs haven't been taken off (which is different to previous seasons I believe?) and Slammer doesn't have any scaffolding on it (for a change :D). Samurai's arm is still in its ordinary position, though I'd assume the pods have been taken off like usual. Not much else I can say really. Photos will probably come from one member or another sooner or later, so until then...

Well you won't find them in the general closed season topic. You'll find it in the big orange box on the top right corner or the Storm Surge topic located in the future section....

Its been a while now since Vertical Construction started on Storm Surge. Surely something new has happened!

Vertical Construction started mid-December, so not a while really.The only update that can be given is that vertical construction is continuing.

Hopefully we should get an update next week. The Christmas break is ending today, maybe operations will resume come Monday.

Operations have already resumed... Between yesterday and about 10 days ago, more work has gone on.

Both of you, this place isn't for direct insults.Be indirect and sarcastic but if you're going to be insulting directly, take it to private message.

Seems to be a very quiet closed season really. Slammer hasn't had it's scaffolding for what seems to be the first time, the four major coasters are probably fine, and Storm Surge is hardly the greatest piece of construction ot occur. I haven't even seen Rush's arm taken off. Hopefully we're looking at more spruce up this closed season..

Over the closed season I would like to see Thorpe Park clean Nemesis Inferno's misters out, they were literally just spraying you with water near the end of the season, but at the beginning of the season they were probably the best I have ever seen them. Oh, and also I wonder how long Storm Surge's effects will last (that's if Thorpe add any). I doubt any of Tidal Waves effects will be mended. Maybe make Stealth's launch smoke work again, it was at the beginning of last season, but not near the end... Add some lights and stuff in X:\. I can think of more but I'm not going to list them. :P

Stealth has had over £90k spent over it closed season so rest assured that it will working fine

Doesn't mean anything though. I wonder how much a new drum costs, and those kind of rides go through those quite a bit!

The Alton,CWoA & LEGOland seperate vouchers says valid until April 30th so its not as though its only for Febuary half term.. I was bit confused!

I know. I was confused. But then I realised that last year they did thorpe park only vouchers. there are more vouchers to come tomorrow, so perhaps they'll be the thorpe park ones?

Zodiac has been deconstructed (ie had pods taken off). Not much else in the way of winter maintainance to be seen. Samurai still has its pods, Rush still has its arms, no scaffolding to be seen...Quiet closed season really...
