Well, the X re-theme hasn't been officially announced yet has it?
Aside from that, more of what is happening on those 10pm closes to entice people in to the park and stay.
Interesting... Thorpe Park is now doing a similar model to Alton (Pay for a day, come back for a year) but is still branded under the "Annual Pass" which includes all the benefits (discount on F+B, Merch etc) except for car parking.
Huh, Thorpe's version includes F&B discounts whereas Alton's doesn't
Thorpe still has KFC and Burger King so they want people to go to the Thorpe park run establishments. AT only has house-run food so don't need to encourage its use as much.
Thorpe's version pre-dates Towers by about 3 years iirc.
Thorpe's version was just released this week? At least in the past few years it was a regular annual pass product.
Thorpe have priced their annual passes at the same price as the on the day tickets since 2014 now I think.
Nah, last year I got a Thorpe only pass for my cousin, it was at least £60.
You overpaid then. I definitely got one for the price of a day ticket last year and I believe they were available practically all season (although an extra £10 charge was incurred for Fright Nights visits).
Didn't they have something like three passes, a entry cost season pass valid till the end of the year, a standard annual pass and a premium annual pass both valid for a year from issue?
When was this announced I've not seen anything about it
It is in the Ts&Cs
29. Some peak date exclusions apply (No entry every Friday, Saturday and Sundays throughout August and the 1st September and 2nd September)
On a random note, has Thorpe said anything about X's Walking Dead retheme yet? If they haven't, they've got to soon, as the park opens in just over two months.
Nope. Nothing yet. Although they must be announcing it soon.
Also rumours are going about that a decision has been reached regarding Loggers Leap, and it will definitely be returning (if true I presume that will be the 'new' attraction for 2019).
RMC Logger's Leap? Anyone?
I wonder what state the trough is in after being left for so long?
Probably no worse than when it was full of fast moving dirty water 8 hours a day with logs bashing every corner.
I don't think there was an inch of mud on the bottom with weeds growing out of it while the ride was opperating.
Granted, cosmetically it looks like something about of Spreepark, but structurally likely not much different.
Oooh! That's good! Wonder whether that decision was made in the same board meeting where they made the decision about Colossos?
