Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

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

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I've posted on here and another site that this ride is supposed (what I've been told by a good source whom I won't reveal) to have a secrecy surprise element like 13 has, I don't know (and I don't want to know) what it is.   

All will be revealed (if there is anything to be) on opening day.

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

I didn't get to see the video before it was deleted.  I've seen the one with the guy reacting to it, but it was heavily edited.  Did you original video show any of the fire effects or were they cut out of that too?  Has it been uploaded anywhere else?..... The video of the guy reacting to it is exa...

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

It's been suggested that they try and tested it with the lowest speed possible by only half filling the cars with water bottles and stalling it just as it goes over the lift hill to see what the worst case scenario would be, to find it stalling point.  The original video did mention in the comment b...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I too would rather see a few of the rides with sponsorship as opposed to hours and ride cuts. But obviously in keeping with the theme park as oppose the Oblivion Fanta gate

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This time last year everyone kicked off just over the 30mins later opening time, before they reverse the idea leaving DF to open at 10.30.    This year, despite the reversal of the staggard opening times, we are still worse off than last years proposed 30mins later open times.  Yet everyone on FB is...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Don't forget that the Smiler and Oblivion don't operate if wind gust reaches 30mph +  So avoid windy days otherwise there be even less choice of rides in the mornings

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

Looking at the recent announcement wit ref to staggard ride opening and the seasonal operational of the Rapids, I don't give much hope at all for NST 

I think we can quiet safely say it won't be opening anytime in the foreseeable future

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

What I don't understand is why Congo River Rapids has become a seasonal attraction? It can't be due to the weather as we go in September every year and a lot of the time the weather is actually really warm. Nor can it be due to not wanting to have it operate in the dark, it was open for Scarefest w...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This is Alton's standard copy and paste reply to the staggered opening times, according to them, they have done this in the past and this year is no different  :lol

I've openly voice my dismay both on Alton Towers and Merlin Facebook pages.  I personally don't think Merlin has enough feedback regarding this  ;)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Those tunnels look unfinished to me, what you can see just looks like a base frame to attach cladding to, just like the roof which is only half done

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Stripes91: Does anybody have a ‘birds eye view’ diagram/image of the track? It’s just that there’s a bit of discussion around the maintenance building that doesn’t seem to add up to me - don’t maintenance sheds usually have switch tracks, meaning riders don’t go in them? Or is this maintenance shed...
