    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: General Discussion

    It can still run three trains but currently they limit it to 2 trains when the park is open - sometimes it tests on three. I think one of the main reasons is staffing required - look at how many staff there are on the 90s videos, think there's 3 either side of the platform checking one side of...

    Thorpe Park: General Discussion

    It was a financial disaster and only lasted 13 weeks - so doubly so a good Merlin project! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/lancashire/3398491.stm

    Nah they'd just buy and re-open the old Mr Blobby Land theme park in Morecambe (I remember going as a young teen and it was quite disappointing)

    Grand National will be on 2... as will the Ghost Train ;) Can you imagine how long a normal Ghost train queue would take with only 2 cars on track!!

    I'd hope, giving that they only strip down one Icon train per year, that it'd be on 2 trains at least from the start

    Just had a look at the group accounts (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/01837026/filing-history) £1.6m pre-tax loss for the group (£1m profit last year) - made up from: £3m loss for the park (but with over £7m capital expenditure on the park in the year) £987k profit for Big Blue...

    Stargazing Pods

    A slightly larger pod with a toilet/shower, then a decent sized pub/eatery in the centre and they'd be so much better. The bigger models aren't that much more expensive.

    They've been doing up Beach Amusements (the one by the entrance, it's had new doors, painted window frames, new outside signage - don't know what's happened inside but maybe they've put the "best" of all the machines from there and bowladrome together, if indeed it's been demolished.Should be...

    Blackpool Central Redevelopment

    Will be interesting to see if it actually happens this time, we've been this close with all the hype so many times about Central station/car park over the last decade or so.

    2019: Peter Rabbit Hippity Hop - Junior Drop Towers for CBeebies Land

    Should be in perfect condition, it's been closed for TLC for how long? 2 or 3 years? There's no way they would lie and use TLC as an excuse so it must have been completely rebuilt and in perfect order by now surely! (Same as Loggers Leap which has been closed for development for about 5 years...

    We can wait until it's seen on the motorway heading to another park as a parts donor, then ask the park and have them insist it's still on site undergoing maintenance... y'know, like they did with Ripsaw

    I would imagine the board of directors makes decisions as a whole, so all of them round a table each voting yes or no.

    Thorpe Park: General Discussion

    The only people I know who love IAC aren't young adults. My mum (in her 60s) and all her friends love it! Agree that if they want to go down this IP route they could at least make it appealing to people, rather than "Well I like SAW, but not touching the rest of them". (I love SAW, can't stand...

    What? They've only had the IMAscore tracks 5 minutes! Haven't been back since the start of the season (where we got on 0 coasters on the first day, 2 on the second day) so until you mentioned this I was wondering "Why would IMAscore be telling people they are just wrong about the music and...

    Stargazing Pods

    To be fair it's probably the best video you could do when you're trying to advertise such a poor product (not "exciting" like the sign says). Half the video just showing the teddy though - is that included? :D

    If you've not had the email (like me) they put up on Facebook/Twitter etc the other day to DM them for the discount code if you're renewing and want to do it online :)

    Quick Questions

    I still don't get why they refuse expired ID for things like this, it's not like the fact your provisional expired means you suddenly got younger without telling anybody....

    The door's quite nice... er... that's all I can say I like about it at the prices they are charging!

    Stargazing Pods

    "Free" bed linen? As if this is a perk that you don't get in EVERY hotel in the world - where bed linen is included in the price. (Or is it yours free to take home? Doubt it) Then you have to pay (probably double the retail purchase price) to hire towels - so that's how they keep the shower...
