    It seems gcse results day is a good day to go to the park if you want to go in the summer. There won't be anywhere near the amount of teenagers

    I'm sure I saw that ops were singing happy birthday on opening day of the season in the station, too?

    Which obviously made more sense than singing it in August

    Is that the rolercoaster equivalent of BDSM? Their favourite ride must be Hero at Mingoland

    Are you sure they weren't referring to the, err, "other" Infusion in Blackpool?

    I am sure there would be some interesting rides there!

    Well. It’s probably cost them about that in lost revenue. So not far off the mark.

    Smiler has cost towers about £150 million in revenue. I'm surprised they kept it open and we're willing to spend that much tbh

    "it's the only thing here with a queue, it must be good"
    Derren Brown's Ghost Train, a dead Thorpe Park, 09/09/19.

    Hillariously incorrect.

    The way he said it i’m pretty sure he was on about construction cost alone tho. That’s why it made me chuckle.

    They would have lost that revenue regardless whether they kept it open or not

    Went the other week on oblivion and a kid saw the maintenance / holding shed whilst we were waiting to unload he turned to his friend and said

    "I was here the other month and they hadn't moved the track so we went into that area and almost crashed. They gave us free passes to keep us quiet'
