Care to spill the beans Mr Know-it-all?

To be fair he probably does know a lot more than he lets on.And you'd be surprised about drinking coffee.

Didnt know where to put this:So I open the sun to find that they are doing the norml 2for1 vouchers for all merlin parks, but fter reading TP isn't included.. why?! 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!

Probably because the theme park voucher which is missing Thorpe Park is a "kids go free" one and they don't want kids going to a park with little to do. CWOA, Legoland and Alton Towers are fine for kids.

I dont know anything but its kinda obvious there not sitting there watching deal or no deal drinking coffee for 5 months.

In previous years we've had Vortex removed completely for refurb, Zodiac replaced by another model, Samurai pods taken away, Rush arms removed. Maybe thats what JoshC is referring to when he says the park is quieter as nothing large scale has been seen from outside it.

well if they are doing anything it should be removing the baked beans (I think) stain from the nemesis sign if that is still there I wont be very happy :L

Har. Reminds me of the bird poo on laser raiders sign. 6 weeks, I wanted to clean it. But I had to be ladder trained.. then I had to be trained in right cleaning stuff, then I'd have to ask permission.It was still there all of last year >_>

Haha! Were you not able to just get a really long broom or mop? Or is it pretty high? Haven't been to Legoland for years.I'd like to see some improvements that are on the same scale as last year. I was pleasantly surprised when the park re-opened for 2010. ;)

Haa, lego had no such thing. They were awful for cleaning stuff when I was there. It wound me up so god damn much!

Just because we cant see it any improvements doesn't mean there hasnt been any. And dont be so obssesed with something happening to X no Way Out its highly unlikely to have any major upgrades or any additions

Very true point I totally agree ! Wouldn't you all rather have the rides safe rather than clean park :) I

Yeah totally agree the park looks shabby and wants a proper good clean IMO because turns down trade .

Alot of the areas look fine, I can't think of much else than Colossus that needs a major clean but it certainly makes the park look a lot better especially when tidal wave was all re painted and revamped with the exception of the fire thing :)

I might not work in Enviro anymore but I can tell you now, the main bridge has been de-gummed, and they are currently doing the Admissions area and I've been told (by a SP TL) that they have de-gummed the whole park and it's looking rather nice compared to other years...

Didn't quite know exactly where to put this; We've seen them before at both Chessington and Alton Towers and not sure if this has already been seen, but check out Silent UK's photo's at Thorpe Park, from 2009. I recon they're due another trip.. ;)If you don't already know, Silent UK are into 'Urban Exploration', which is basicly trespassing, but the pictures they take are pretty unique and defenitly worth a look!Trespass here!

Thorpe Park are fully aware of them and their stunts in the other Merlin parks, but what can they do apart from keep a close eye... when they're there at least!! :wub:

Yeah, they have little else they can do apart from watch and ensure they don't damage anything - which urban explorers don't do.Quite fascinating photos, I love pictures from these guys!

Rush is getting a little bit more TLC this year than usual, the top has been taken off along with half of each arm so when you go by the park most of its gone at the moment!

Makes a change from most of it being gone cos it's decided to throw it at the guests :(
