Re: Vampire

It is a shame because it takes away the character of the ride and it's not as impressive as it used to be.  I guess Merlin have to distribute their budgets carefully but to have some TLC given to Vampire would be great.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I used to like Knightmare too, a classic TV show :)

But regarding this attraction, it actually looks quite good and if Merlin were to put anymore VR additions in, I hope it won't be on any rides!

Re: Howl-o-ween

I quite like the sound of Chessington's line up and I'm tempted to go back to their Halloween event this year as I haven't been for a few years.

Re: LEGO Ninjago World - 2017

I went on the new Ninjago ride last week and I have to say, I was really impressed and once I got used to using my hand instead of a laser gun, it was pretty simple and I think it's a great addition to the park.

Re: SP Summer Sizzler 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

What an amazing day full of fascinating facts and fun with fantastic people. The talk was really insightful and there was a lot to learn about the park and DBGT which was a great way to start the event. The tour of the Swarm workshop was also really interesting and talking to the engineers too as th...

Re: Towers Loving Care

I like that idea Tom, having monorail trains designed around the coasters would look nice and also give them a refresh.  Also, if they were to do that, perhaps the windows could be made to be transparent as well so that you can get a better view of the park as you travel in the trains.

Re: Chessington - The Future

I love the idea of Mystic East receiving some TLC as it's overdue and will be nice to have some tigers to look at as well. Chessington has always been a pretty scenic park and this will be a nice addition.

Wow, it certainly is going up quickly and I agree with Dan in that the construction being easy to see with the viewing windows makes a change!

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I'm curious by this news from Thorpe but I think the world's first thing could be to do with DBGT too unless it's something temporary for the summer? I doubt it though but will be interested to see what it turns out to be.

Re: London Paramount - General Discussion

It is disappointing that the deal with Paramount has ended but I guess it could open up other ideas for IPs that the developers might choose instead.  I still hope this goes ahead and hopefully the planning application will be submitted as hoped.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I agree as it wouldn't make sense to have two coasters with the same theme so hopefully it will fit into its area with a suitable theme.  There's certainly been a lot going on with construction and it will be interesting when more wood appears :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I'd like to think that Merlin would come up with an original theme for SW8 but we'll just have to wait and see.But whatever the theming structure turns out to be, it'll certainly have a good near miss moment :)

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I agree, it would have been nice to add a little bit of theming to fit in with the area but at least there's some extra rides for smaller kids to go on.

Re: Galactica

It is a shame that Galactica's had so many issues with the VR and I'm sure Merlin would like to get it up and running - just a little embarrassing that it still isn't working. However, I'm not a great fan of the VR either and much prefer being able to see the scenery around the ride. I do agree with...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Spoiler!
It is hard to tell I think but the demon is very lifelike and the end part is very good. It certainly isn't what I expected the first time I did version 2 of ghost train.

Shame but it does make you think that the audio should be changed so as not to mislead guests :)
