    The music is awfully bland. You could play it over The Swarm or Saw and I wouldn't know the difference.

    I thought the same, it's really generic.

    IMAscore have released a clip of music for the ride, and it's a much better version than the one Thorpe uploaded the other day. Reminds me a bit of some of his tv shows music.

    That would make sense when you think about it. Most of the time guests are only going to be near one speaker as they walk past. No sense in having a mix with some parts that your audience can't hear due to speaker location. Let's be honest, most area music is piped out of single speakers dotted around the place, rather than stereo pairs.

    Yes but the final mixes are also in stereo...they might be delivered partially in mono for the speakers but the versions that go online to show off on videos etc are in stereo.

    Well I'd rather it open late and have all the details finished than what it's current state is probably like. People would have moaned about it not being finished if it had opened on time, they can't win.

    They are asking people on FB who have booked hotels to contact them.

    I get that it might not be finished so pushing it back is fine, by why do they feel that such short notice is acceptable? They seem to be developing a track record of pushing their rides back with very little notice now, and that's what's going to rile the public up the most.

    I don't understand why they can't open a ride on time at the start of a season. Oh yeah I forgot... It's merlin.

    @Natalie, yes you're right, they can't win. Because they can't do anything right.

    That's if you're staying at Thorpe. If you staying off site then you're screwed really.

    Yep non refundable hotel money down the sodding drain. I'm fuming. How many years have they had to get this right, and yet they still can't. Poor conduct as usual

    Why oh why do Merlin continue to do stuff like this?

    It's a multi-million pound theme park ride they're putting up, not a shed. They must have know at least several weeks before now that it wasn't going to be ready on time, not a week before it opens.

    I'm not surprised, but it really is a poor effort.
