Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I did the mazes on Saturday and felt perfectly safe during every run. I've heard some people have had issues with other guests distancing (particularly in Mine Tours), but this will vary per group.

Hi OliverDav, welcome to the Forum!

You'll need to upload the image to a hosting site, such as Imgur, then copy the BBCode into a post. It should like something like this:

When pasted, the image should appear instantly.

Hope this helps :)

Re: Drayton Manor

Good news! Although the Looping Group don't have a lot to their name (some of their major parks include Pleasurewood Hills and Bagatelle in France), it's certainly great to see that someone is stepping in and will hopefully invest a little. I last visited Drayton Manor in 2018 and, whilst it's got s...

As reported on Southparks FacebookMerlin Attractions Operations Limited have filed a new UK trademark for 'CROC DROP'.

Could this be the name of Chessington World of Adventures Resort's new drop tower, which is currently under construction and set to open in 2021?

It's the hottest day of the year so far today, with temperatures peaking around 30 degrees.

Who else wishes they could cool off on the Congo River Rapids? Not long to go now!

In 1981, guests visiting Alton Towers could take a terrifying tour through Doom & Sons, the Resort's own petrifying funeral parlour. Being a macabre mixture of interactive scares and ghoulish gags, the walkthrough experience played out like a fearful funhouse, creepily complementing neighbouring...
