Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Hearing from multiple sources that nemesis is going to be running a 1 train service all season! This is not going to be a fun season with all the budget cuts really starting to affect queue times. I remember it running a 1 train service once before, and with only small visitor numbers it was taking ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Whilst the photos are nice, and the structure looks brilliant! Im really disappointed in the lack of effects on the images. It’s hardly ‘bursting into flames’ I can only see the two small flame effects on the shoulders and that’s it? Nothing at all in the chest area? Hoping this is literally a tease...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Fingers crossed for something tomorrow perhaps? Are Fridays the days they would usually opt for to make more info known?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Im going to say it.... I'm actually bored waiting :( we have nothing more than the name and a couple of rubbish instagram pics to be excited about. its very strange in my opinion, were just 5 weeks'ish from season opening and we haven't had much to get us pumped up! (by modern standards / digital me...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Disgusted that Nemesis, the parks main attraction in many eyes, is open for a shocking 4 hours on most days! An absolutely ridiculous decision. If that doesn't change within the first month I’ll be shocked! There’s going to be some big customer service queues.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Kind of upset it looks a bit happy lol! Was expecting it to be a bit more horror like, or a skull like design instead of it being an actual human feature head design. It’s defo a miniature version of the main themeing element I can tell the facial features are the same as the tarp covered version. I...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

The black things look like piles of that rubber/plastic floor tile square things that join together? I wonder if it could be that and what that would be for if so

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

would have liked to have seen some nice black cobble stones going down instead of red blocked paving :( doesn't seem to go with the theme to well seeings as they have been making the station appear 'aged' etc

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Cheers for the update pic. I really can't work this thing out. It just doesn't seen high enough yet. Isn't there a hole where the train will run through pretty much exactly under the 'horns' currently? That would mean there's a big hole in its face lol? Or am I completely wrong?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Seems weird seeing that new addition to the theming element, I really did think we would see it go higher in size before any 'horns' or the likes were added. Very intrigued now. It always looked like a torso awaiting a head and arms (scale wise)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Anyone ever seen the film 'knowing' these symbols really remind me of that kind of a vibe, like where someone has been 'chosen ' in that also. This just got very exciting! Really pleased they've gone the dark and twisted style route instead of some rubbish gimmicky pirates thing hahaaaaaaaar
