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

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Hey guys, Without trying to sound like 'that guy making stuff up' I've just heard from an employee that splash landings is set to be closed (hotel, not water park) any idea if this could be true? Seems very odd but from a relative who works in the hotel. Any one else heard anything of the sort? Gutt...

Re: SW8

Are wooden coasters particularly expensive?? I've no idea of costing on wooden types? I'd be interested to hear what a similar layout/size to this has costed elsewhere in the world?

Re: SW8

Could it be that the coaster is just a part of the development? And the other space left around the flume site will house something else? A flat ride or more themeing/interactive elements?

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Heres something I've just spotted which is quite odd, and I'm pretty sure i don't recall hearing anybody discuss. I've picked out three images, which on inspection all have different setups regarding the 'handle' area of the front metal bars on the barrier section of the carriages. Does anybody reca...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I was extremely disappointed with galactica on my visit on Monday this week. Id ridden it probably 10/12 times before Monday's visit. I rode twice in a row, and then returned an hour or so later to ride again and it was absolutely awful all three times. I rode the back row first ride of the day and ...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

There was posters up on the exit stairs leading to the Galactica shop today, with 'new destination' planets being advertised as coming soon and read as if these will be new VR scenes :)
