Yeah they definitelly don't need another IP. A dark ride with an original theme would be great.I'd hope that they continue down the current trend of fairly familiar themes (Dinosaurs and Americana) with a fairly robust design and quality behind it.
They already have an IP the park is now synonymous with in the public eye. They don't really need another IP, and nor do they need to copy a poor looking dark ride that looks incredibly static and dull.
Something like Popcorn Revenge's ride system could be a shout as a starting dark ride attempt.
The non Peppa Pig rides rarely get queues longer than 40 minutes on even the busiest daysOut of interest, does Paultons tend to get long queues for the non-PPW rides during the summer holidays? Only asking because I’m going on 30th July, and I’m wondering whether to expect queues of 1hr+ for major rides like you’d get at one of the Merlin parks on a summer’s day.
I’ve been monitoring the queues for the past couple of days, and I’m cautiously optimistic, as nothing seems to be getting particularly long, but I wasn’t sure whether the summer holidays would be different.
I’m in the South West.@Matt N what ITV region do you live in? If you are down south I would expect more Chessington and Paulton adverts. In the midlands you would probably get more Drayton Manor and Alton Towers.
I don’t think they need to advertise Thorpe Park either, there is nothing new worth advertising and the newest attractions need booked time slots too.
That makes sense then, you are seen as too far from Alton to be their main audience. They will advertise midlands and north more.I’m in the South West.
Thorpe themselves put a myriad of TV adverts onto YouTube, with some advertising Black Mirror and some just advertising the park, but I’ve never seen any of them on TV. I found this odd given that I’ve seen a fair few for Chessington, Legoland and Paultons’ newest additions, and I’ve even seen 1 on TV for Alton/TWODW.
