Re: Thorpe Park - Temporary shipping container hotel to be built Oh m£rlin, when will you learn that were laughing at you, not with you! I think this is one of the worst idea's in the whole entire world. Why would anyone want to PAY to stay in a Shipping Container. I understand that they're testing the market, but theirs a large difference between a temporary hotel made out of Shipping Containers, and a full time themed hotel made out of bricks and mortar. I sure know which one I'd choose.
