Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I really hope the spinning doesn't hint at things otherwise I will have to close my eyes and miss out on it, which really wouldn't be fair to those who can't do spinning

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

I'm currently going through the motions with this.  I'm happy because light and sound X kind of felt a bit temporary and this will give it so much life. The theme is actually quite good, especially when you think back to how much of an impact Saw The Ride had on Thorpe Park. Also the idea that it co...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I believe it’s been leaked. It’s possible that they are filming the advert and someone leaked it from that. All I can say is I like and can’t wait now for opening

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Those images are quite pretty promotional images. Its a shame that it won't actually look like that with the whole fog thing, but I think it will still be quite an Instagramable ride.

Re: Colossus - General Discussion

I have a very marmite relationship with this coaster. On the one hand its always lovely to watch and the four barrel rolls are the highlight for me, but the train is so small and its so rough that I don't enjoy riding it any more. Its also a very photogenic coaster and I do love sitting at the exit ...

All the items in the box are also limited edition and will only be available in the box. They will not be sold separately in the shops. This is according to an email that someone in the Merlin VIP FB Group received back. They did provide a screenshot but I currently haven’t worked out how to get ima...

Re: Fright Nights

As much as I adore the BIA experience, I don't think it will make a return in the foreseeable future. But I guess we can safely assume that both Saw Alive and The Walking Dead Living Nightmare will be returning for FN, given they are opening during the year. I would, however, be sad if TP decide to ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'm not shy about my hatred about AT merchandise and how crap it has been, and yet again I'm not a fan of this, mainly due the shocking price tag attached. That being said, the wood and this rip off are in some respects good news for Wicker Man related merchandise. It kind of comes across that they ...

Scare Kingdom Scream Park

There wasn't a topic for this place so thought I would start one. Scare Kingdom is based in Lancashire and over the space of a year they host many different scare related events. Their first event, Valenterror, opens next weekend for one weekend only and will have three attractions open. These are: ...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I don't think anyone is surprised that the popularity of the VR has decreased. Having never experienced the VR side to Galatica I wouldn't like to comment, but I would also think them not updating the VR with new locations as original hinted at hasn't helped. Given Merlin seem to be trying to grab t...
