Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I think in terms of excitement, it is because Icon is just a rollercoaster, no theme no real media or PR content just “hey we are building a ride” Rides in today’s world need to tell a story, much like John Wardley says, with design you’re an entertainer. If it doesn’t tell a story or aesthetically...

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

In real life it looks phenomenal and very impressive, the centre theming structure is very imposing on the area and viewable all round.

I think come March people are in for a treat!

Re: Fright Nights

Interesting Fright Nights are being advertised as “most frightening yet”, for this to be true Brave It Alone has to return for me. FN last year lacked the edge and atmosphere for me it has had in the previous 2/3 seasons, the maze quality (scenery and sets) improved but frights and intensity decreas...

I do wonder why they don't reuse the Haunted House soundtrack, or at least parts of it. Was magnificent.

I’d like to think with the new sound track being done in house, parts of the original HH music could be Easter egg’d in.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

No idea why they thought they needed to change the Inferno and Colossus themes, they have always been fantastic as is. I agree, iconic themes should have been kept. It’s odd though as in the making of video it can be heard that they say colossus and inferno were kept the same, which they haven’t be...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Usually, for new attractions, they don't offer Fastrack straight off. I expect VIP holders will be the only exception to this rule. If they do, then I'll be looking to Fastrack as I'm not looking forward to queuing on opening day :lol It’s an interesting subject, Fast track essentially costs the pa...

It looks like the sound tunnel isn't solid, therefore you'll be able to still see through it.

I’d disagree, when zoomed in it appears internal from the wooden timber they have blacked it out.

In a shocking turn of events no one could have predicted  Its closure has been strongly speculated for months due to it being closed since mid August. It seems that they can no longer find an insurer that is willing to cover the ride :( I hadn’t seen anything of it, seems neither had others as they...
