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

Clearly there must have been a light out for you, because I could easily see the large set piece which is a few feet from the queue, along with the various Easter eggs in the boxes and on the walls (especially love the one near the front end of the station!). In regards to the actors it’s unfortunat...

Also it looks like it will be based off the Lego Monster Fighters sets as I recognise the Mummy and Frankenstein's monster from the set. 


That is correct. :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Wicker Man is loud when it comes near you, and the maintenance shed has got some loud audio. The station also has some loudish dispatch audio. Unfortunately as a ride it is very loud because of the amount of music they use, even whilst the coaster itself isn’t awfully loud!

The effect was broken on Thursday as well...

Needless to say when you’re hit in the face with water at 30+ mph it’s not very comfortable!

It’s nothing to do with the SW thing though? This is purely just the usual marketing image we get showing off the coasters! :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The TV ad still has to be edited, had any VFX added and have it’s graphics and CGI material added, so whilst it was filmed before it may have only just been finished more recently.

In the past the TV ad for attractions has even came out the day before opening, so it really could be at any point now!

I think the upper height limit has more to do with leg room in the cars than headroom avoiding the themeing above you head


It will be to do with the near miss elements, this is why THE SWARM has one and Runaway Mine Train doesn’t :)

Normally between 1.94&1.96M although it may not be the case. If you’ve been going on 13 ok I’d imagine you’ll be fine - just avoid putting hands up! :lol

As a tall person, I do wonder if the ride will have an upper height limit (like Th13teen) because of the head choppers etc.


Yes, yes it will :lol

I imagine it’ll be 1.94M like all other rides :)

That’s quite normal for promotional images, remember the amount of lighting The Smiler had when those images were released


Yes I know, my point was just to say that on opening we shouldn’t expect the fog over the track etc, or so much lighting!

Apparently the fog machines and some of the lighting was added for the images, so we should expect less lighting and fog :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I've been thinking about the shop today and what appearance it will take. Personally I’m expecting something along the lines of The Smiler as opposed to Ghost Train with this. Something not too flashy but nicely themed. I’d like to see something like Ghost Train but I honestly don’t know if we will...
