Re: Thorpe Park Resort

The website is legit as Chessington used the same format.

Initial details and a potential layout should be revealed on Friday - exciting!

Re: Thunder Looper

Such a different world back then with very few people actually using the internet, let alone social media and forums. https://youtu.be/6G9bbrvUIms Thunder Looper was without a doubt the king of the valley back then. I'm sure it would still be a...

Re: Help with proposal

How lovely! If you want to send me an email with details, I can forward it to the contacts we have at the park. I know they are about to have the busiest week of the year yet, so there's no guarantee they would be able to help - but nothing to lose by trying.

That’s usually the case, but COVID has got in the way and delayed all Merlin capex projects by varying timelines.

Re: SW9

Possibly. Obviously the coaster plans were drawn up for that site a long time ago, but don’t think anyone knows why the project didn’t go ahead - either due to budget or conservation constraints. Would be a great location for the next major ride!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Quick Questions
