Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Must admit, SW8's marketing isn't inspiring hope in me at this point. They seem to have no focus just yet. They started with the dark/mysterious tease at the end of the National Rollercoaster Day video, then released a re-edit of the RCR video, then announced the adult based maze and now release thi...

Re: Fright Nights

I don't think so, and I would very much doubt there will be any connection this year! :) It appears that BLAIR WITCH is returning based on this photo posted by Thorpe! https://s21.postimg.org/4pcuj143r/IMG_3733.jpg There is also a police badge in the middle that appears to read "City of Atlanta...

Re: Fright Nights

Thorpe are running a promotion for FRIGHT NIGHTS alongside Andy Muschetti's upcoming IT where if you buy a ticket in advance to see the movie you will also receive a 2 for 1 voucher for FRIGHT NIGHTS! One would hope this would hint toward a new partnership between Thorpe and New Line but I doubt it ...

Re: Silver Dollar City

I'm not sure I fully trust that, as the trademark filed is for 'Time Traveler' as opposed to 'Time Machine'! I wouldn't be surprised if it is a Big Dipper though if I'm honest... Yeh not entirely sure about it myself, although the look of it does match all the teasers, the fonts are all the same. I...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Why would Thorpe Park be teaming up with Universal? :-s

If you mean in regard to the IP it's worth noting that it's been axed from HHN (only the permanent attraction in Hollywood will remain) and that the show isn't a Universal property :)

Re: Scarefest

Interestingly its still advertising a ticket for 3 mazes, think one of them could be free? Did they advertise "Altonville Mine Tours, Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers" tickets before it was revealed last year? They have a 3 maze option or a 4 maze option, so no I doubt it will be ...
