    Given Thorpe already have 2 hour queues, I'm presuming they've finally made security efficient.

    Well done Thorpe Park!

    Can’t help but think the area looks a little sparse? Not sure if there is more to be added, but the event does officially start today.

    On Saturday they only bag searched people who set off the alarms on the arches, I did and they checked my bag and let me through without using the sand.

    Are Spaten and Becks all there is?

    Based on this, yes it appears so.

    Looks pretty decent really. The stage needs some graphics added to the front, but the stalls etc look fine.

    Reminds me of Winter Wonderland in a way.

    Also have to remember today is a Oktoberfest Lite day. Friday and Saturday are the core days with entertainment in this area.

    Clever to see they've changed some of the themes and audio to match the event, notably Rumba (Oopah) Rapids and Detonator (5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Auf Wiedersehen, in a German accent). :p
    Wonder if Towers will do simillar?

    This looks fantastic. But where on earth are they going to put it?

    Probably the coach park (ie the car park to the right as you drive in)

    That would make sense, as I'm assuming coach trips aren't a thing at the moment.

    I absolutely love the Oktoberfest announcements along with the soundtracks that have been remixed to have an oompah style theme!

    I visited Thorpe today with a couple of friends. The Oktoberfest theme certainly adds a new, fun vibe to the place, especially with the music that has been composed for it. There's a variety of oompah-esque tracks playing in the main area outside DBGT which are nice to listen to, and a few others playing in certain locations around the park.

    As for the main event itself, it is very small and contained, with not an awful lot going on. I would imagine once the stage gets some use it will feel more alive. The 5-odd food stalls didn't really cut it for me.
