It’s half term I’m not surprised they sold out.
Ever since Thorpe sold out for the rest of the season it appears twitter has become a breeding ground for ticket scammers who suddenly have lots of tickets to sell!
I’m sure those on here wouldn’t fall for it. But you never know, people sometimes get desperate when FOMO hits. But don’t fall for it folks, keep well clear!
All remaining Luna Cinema screenings have been cancelled.
Was always the risk they ran with bad weather but hopefully it’s something they try again during summer, there has been demand for it so it wasn’t all bad.
The opening dates and times for Thorpe’s 2021 season are up.
Whilst things can of course change, it does show:
- Season runs from 27th March to 31st Oct
- No closed dates during the season
- opening hours of 10-5 weekdays, 10-6 weekends and school holidays
- Later opening hours on Fri & Sat during September, hopefully this means Oktoberfest will return
- Fright Nights dates 8-10 and 15-31st Oct with 9pm closes
The lack of closed dates and signalled return of Oktoberfest sounds promising - at least there doesn’t appear to be any significant cuts in those areas. Hopefully this is the case for Alton Towers too.
Any events to return this year like Hyper Spring or Supercharged Summer as they were planned for this year!
Interesting they’ve used the Covid close time for Fright Nights next year. Either they’re pessimistic, cautious or they’re using the precedent to cut the hours permanently.
They did cut the hours before Britain realised it was in a pandemic so I'm unfortunately thinking it's long term.
The closing time was ether 10 and 8 depending on the day at the start of the year.
Clearly it's just annual maintenance - all rides have to undergo a strip-down and thorough NDT inspection.
Rush spends more of its life in pieces than it does operating tbh.
Nothing out of the ordinary.
I know closed season speculation is usually pretty silly, but come on this is a bit far !
When you turn off your TV do you have to dismantle your oven? I dont get this.
Also how could Slammer share a power supply when the rides are so far apart. The park will have several sub stations to run areas, which are all fed from the incoming supply to the park.
Opening an electronics box and some graffiti on a panel really isn't activity.
Slammer is still standing, waiting to be put out it’s misery unfortunately.
Anyone know what's with the Tesla marquee?
Given the fact there’s a couple of Teslas sat behind the marquee (one without number plates) I’d assume it’s simply some sort of corporate event. Possibly a dealer demo event or something and they’re using Thorpe as a venue.
Theme Park Guide were reporting the Tesla stand is there as Thorpe have rented the car park to Tesla for socially distanced new car collections.
