Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The ride is going to run three trains, so with blocking I would expect;

One train on the circuit
One train loading
One train either in the preshow if it stops the train or waiting in the maintenance bypass/turn before the station.

Re: Heide Park

Lots of the flat rides from the park have appeared on private showmans advertising groups on Facebook. So it looks as though Merlin is having one of its flat ride culls in the near future. Oh and we’re due to find out what’s happening to Colossos within the next week, so that’ll be fun seeing them e...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

They would be stupid not to sell posters of the artwork, at minimum I think we’ll see the prints like they’ve done with the other attractions in recent years. Obviously concept art is heavily embellished, but I think we have a good shot at the fire from the top of the structure being very impresssiv...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The artwork and visual styling looks incredible. Though Alton Towers has always excelled in this area. The worlds first is laughable, but then does it really make a difference? That’s just some marketing fluff to get it in the papers, probably to justify the mistake on the Merlin Annual Pass sale ad...

Re: Events Calendar 2018

As it’s a meet up I would expect the focus will be around SW8 opening and riding together. There won’t be any fixed plans for the day so people are free to come and go as they please. ScareMazing is the only event where the activities carry age restrictions or advisories. Usually 15+ for the scarema...

Re: TTSP Discord?

Hello, Thank you for the suggestion. We used to run a full chat room service in addition to the forum and shoutbox, whilst initially popular this eventually could not sustain itself so we discontinued it. We have also previously had a community based Skype group which had the same eventual outcome. ...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

In the past they have allowed those with renewals not yet due to buy and not ‘redeem’ the renewal until necessary (up to a year) so it’s definitely worth giving them a call and asking about that. I think they basically just add the months to the new pass.

Smilies!

Hello!

Sadly the time has come to retire our existing smiley set. Over the coming weeks we'll be slowly phasing them out and introducing a new modern "Emoji" set. 

We're aware of a few bugs, so please bear with us during this transition! :)

And yes, of course we have :poop:

Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park London

I visited on Boxing Day. I'm lucky enough to be able to get to a lot of the bigger fairs in the UK and Europe so things like Hangover, Air, Blizzard (Turbine), XXL etc are far too expensive at Winter Wonderland for my liking. I often find them half the price and giving twice as long cycles elsewhere...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Can i ask what makes the images become illegal ? Im just an intrigued man here and there is no laws regarding images taken from aircraft or drones at this point ? The footage clearly shows guests within the path of the drone which makes this a legal grey area. We have extensive knowledge of the reg...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I'll definitely miss the hilarity of X in its 'Rave Coaster' format. It's always been in the "So Bad It's Good" category for me.

Now however it'll have a IP and have to present itself seriously, I guess we'll have to see if the theming can back that up.

Re: Nurburgring

It also stopped operating because during a launch it shattered the glass windows of the building. They weren't able to remove it because the entire building is designed around it otherwise it would already be long gone. Hopefully something can be done with it but I'm not going to hold my breath.  It...

As it stands the retheme will not include VR.

The budget is substantial enough for some pretty cool interior theming. :)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

When that pathway was open it was really interesting to get up close to the ride. The scale is much more impressive in person and you could really get a sense of the elevation changes between the top of the lift and the helixes down by the theming feature. This is not going to be a slow ride by any ...
