Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

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. 

I will update this topic with any information as we get it. :)

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...

This is your chance to grab a ticket before they go on general sale tomorrow. We are expecting this event to sell out very quickly as ticket numbers are limited.  Sho...

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...

Re: Fright Nights

^ That's for a second, as yet unannounced, IP based maze. :)

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!

Platform 15 is also having some major overhauling this year. Think the difference between The Big Top 1 and 2.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I do believe the ride is ahead of schedule by a few weeks. It certainly is going up quickly, though not abnormally quick for a woodie. Most coasters go up very quickly once the foundations are done. Now this part is done you can begin to get a sense of scale from the ride. I'm definitely looking for...
