Re: Ideas & Suggestions for 2020

In terms of ERTs- it'd be nice to see both Galactica and Saw on the offerings. It's been a very long time since we've had either, and in that time there's been plenty of new members who won't have had the chance to experience them. Behind the Scenes is already cropping up quite a bit, and that's som...

Re: Plopsaland De Panne

This coaster looks crazy! It's really cool that we're getting one of the modern, inverting Mack spinners as whilst Time Traveller does look great, Plopsaland is far closer. Really looking forward to seeing this completed, and will certainly be making the trip over the sea to give this a go. The only...

Re: TT ScareMazing 7 - Reviews & Feedback

Once again, the event was so much fun! It was really great to take-over the mazes, as it's always so nice to see different peoples reactions, and doing them as a community is really refreshing.  The talk was insightful hearing just how much effort is put into Scarefest every year. As always, it was ...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Well, this is a "surprise"! The Walliams idea itself isn't really shocking, but I just don't really feel that this is... right . It's no secret that CCL has been a very quiet area over the past few seasons and has clearly needed work, so in some sense, this is good news as it means that th...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Project 42 is presumably having some issues with its preshow today. The maze opened an hour later than usual- the preshow video has been moved elsewhere, and the walk from preshow through to decontamination isn't being used.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Once again, Scarefest goes from strength to strength. I seem to say this every year, but based off my first impressions- 2019 is the best that Scarefest has ever been! Towers Street is decorated in it's traditional fleet of bunting and pumpkins, including a new set of ride-based ones. There's also s...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I'll do a proper review of the mazes tomorrow- but The Attic is different to anything the Resort have done, whilst still feeling traditional and retaining that "Terror" vibe. As a theatrical based maze, it feels right as a separate ticket. It's great, and the sets and lighting are very good.

Re: The Future Of Scarefest

You'll have to forgive me for reviving such an old topic, but after experiencing the three Darkfield containers last week, would a more "theatrical theatre" type attraction work? For those that haven't heard of Darkfield, their three shows/attractions are very simple. You're given a pair o...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

On a speculative note thanks to this little tidbit on Darkest Depths, could we possibly see a big puppet for the "kraken"? And with some of the old Sub containers being sighted, maybe parts of the old alien puppet could be retrofitted?

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Theme Park Guide have shared a photo update of various construction-y bits, and with it comes the interesting news of containers inside the Courtyard for Darkest Depths, and confirming that The Attic will be, uhh, in the top floor of the ruins. What's interesting about this, is that access to the t...

Re: Fright Nights

If I'm brutally honest... no. As a standard passholder, there's not much incentive to pay extra for what has in the past been a string of weak days out. In my time visiting, Fright Nights has rarely impressed, and after the plethora of poor reviews from last year, it'll take a lot of changes for me ...

Re: Forbidden Kingdom Drop Tower - New for 2021

Whilst it's sad news to see Rameses departing, it's not a huge surprise that it's leaving the Resort as it's been on it's last legs for what seems like forever! It's great to see a new ride  installed at Chessington at long last, and even better that it's a drop tower, which is something the park ha...

It is yes- Helix and Balder have traditional on-platform drops, and you take your bags on Lisebergbanan (which is fun trying to keep hold of them!)

Yeah, no matter which queue you use, you'll need to pop your bags in the lockers prior. If you're wanting to keep hold of your phone then the staff should ask for any smaller items in the station as they have trays for these.
