    Near the start of season, anyone for Chessington and Thorpe? My MAP runs out mid-April so keen to visit the park before it does and Thorpe is always fun early season. It isn't right at the start of the year, so they have time to actually open stuff. Also got a few exit passes left over from 2016 to use.

    I boycotted CWOA in 2016 but would like to see the new Gruffalo ride, regardless if it's any good or not. Plus try the Smokehouse to see how this well received new Merlin eatery is going down.

    Was thinking Chessington Saturday and Thorpe Park Sunday, with some accommodation somewhere on the Saturday night. Feel free to join us!

    Let me know if you are interested.

    Accommodation
    Myself and John will be staying at the Holiday Inn London Shepperton on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Meeting times
    Chessington: Meet at park entrance at 9.30am
    Thorpe Park: Meet at park entrance at 9.30am

    :)

    I need to do Scorpion Express, a ride on Vampire and Gruffalo would be a bonus. I'd probably not bother with Thorpe as I'll do it with Nicole when she is free for Derren Brown. So I'm a maybe

    I'm in, I've still got MAP fastpass vouchers so I can become part of both park's problems for a day.

    Interested! Will probably just come down for the Chessington day unless I can be tempted to stop over Saturday night

    Still not done Chessington, only fair I put myself through it at least once too, I'll try and get down for it, probably won't do Thorpe though.

    I'd love to come to this but engineering works means that the usual 3 changes are 6 or 7 changes now. :(

    I'd be happy to join you guys for this, still fairly new here but live close to both parks and could do with a coaster fix. Also haven't been to Chessington in a while so be interesting to see what else Merlin have abolished with my childhood.

    I'll just need to decide whether I turn to the dark side and buy an MAP.
