Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

The ride is targeted to open with the season next year.

However the resort won't confirm this until much nearer the time as they don't want to get caught out like they did with The Smiler.

Re: Fright Nights

Has anyone that has been recently noticed any changes or improvements to Living Nightmare? It hasn't got amazing reviews so was hoping they may have improved it :) I went on the 20th, It's not changed much beyond having a slightly reworked finale.  There was a lot of actors! (More than 4 per room/s...

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

I've never been a particular fan of Hotel New York, for its price bracket it doesn't really offer anything too special and you may as well pay the extra and stay in the Disneyland Hotel. 

So for me this change is a welcome one. However if they touch Tower of Terror I will be incredibly annoyed!

Hello,

Earlier today a piece of information was posted in this topic, however due to an external request we have had to remove it temporarily.

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

The ride is a heap of turd operationally, it's throughput is small and it's a maintenance nightmare.  It also annoys the locals with noise, is obnoxious in theme and placement and infringes upon a 'protected view' of the towers.  Every major planning app that references that area has stated the ride...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

That looks lovely. I really liked Aquatica on the last two visits to Orlando and with that addition it possibly edges out Volcano Bay in terms of what slides the park has. 

They just need some sort of LSM Aquacoaster now and there will be no reason to tolerate Volcano Bay and the awful TapuTapu.

Re: Scarefest

It's looking like another high quality addition. Mazes tend to look far better when theatrically lit with smoke and other effects so I can't wait to see it all in action. The tech geek in me is already spotting certain things in place. There are a few changes to the other mazes as well, so overall t...

Re: Mutiny Bay Smokehouse

Our of curiosity, does the Chessington one offer anything in the way of Vegetarian options? The menu online very much implies that other than chips and salad, they do not.

Otherwise, I'm sure it'll be lovely for meat eaters but the food situation for Vegetarians at the park remains truly appalling.

Re: Toverland

This park has always been a favourite of mine. Troy is excellent and each addition seems to be adding more theming and immersion.  The layout of the B&M very much reminds me of Gatekeeper, though it's a lot prettier and will look absolutely amazing swooping over the lake.  It looks like I now ha...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Right, so we can rule the Fireworks out then. I'm torn between wether they could be doing stuff for Scarefest or SW8... although the time might not be right for installation of lights on SW8, Sappire need to know the plans from AT, so that could still explain why they were onsite... but I still thi...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Lateral G's are fine in a flat section of track, as long as the coaster tracks well and remains smooth. I rode Stampida again last week, and although a different manufacturer, the flat sections are hell - and this is after being retracked two years ago. Stampida could be rebuilt from scratch and st...

It should be a fairly good lineup this year! Only a couple of days left until the announcement now.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I would expect those TV screens to be showing something sooner rather than later. They're not a cheap addition and they'll want to make the most of them before the season ends!
