Thorpe Park - 16/6/12

Postby Simba » Sun Jun 17, 2012 8:40 am

So yesterday was the fourth time I have been to Thorpe Park this season, The rain held off and it was a fantastic day of riding.
 
Breakdowns, breakdowns and more breakdowns, that's what makes Thorpe highly fun and unique without them it wouldn't be Thorpe Park. So as you can guess on my forth visit to Thorpe we noticed many breakdowns, The Swarm broke down twice, Colossus once five minuets after I went on it. Tidal Wave had a long breakdown.

I have been wondering what has happened to Slammer as it is currently unavailable until further notice, I know Thorpe have had allot of problems with it so maybe we might be seeing it being removed for a better ride in the near future. 

So in a nutshell it was a good day and it was enjoyed.

Do you ever go anywhere other than Thorpe?

I can see your reasoning behind constantly going. If I could I'd live there.

Well, I would love to live there. But as It is right on my doorstep along with Chessington World Of Adventures and because of it, they are the two major ones I offtern go to. But the next new theme park I am going to is Crealy (Devon)

I can see where you're coming from with that but I just love the place. Maybe it's childhood memories. Maybe something else but I find the park so fun and the rapids are my favourite rapids.
