Re: Toverland

Toverland have published Episode 3 of their 'Making Of' series, with this video mainly focusing on the composition of the music and soundtracks for Port Laguna and Avalon. Obviously the end of the video that shows the first sections of Fenix's track going up is now a little outdated :P RxJ1TLl5UCE

Great photo update, Morgan :)  The final sections of Fenix's track have been placed today, as shown in these photos from Toverland's 2018 minisite ! https://2018.toverland.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/180503_Fenix-af_5.jpg https://2018.toverland.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/180503_Fenix-af_3.jpg...

Re: Walt Disney World - Epcot

A massive concrete foundation has recently been poured for the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction coming to Epcot, which looks to include all the footers for the coaster in the new 'facility' being constructed.

Makes sense to do any maintenance work on a quiet day like today though. Hopefully back open tomorrow!

Well, it won't be open tomorrow, they'll be nobody to ride it.

It's that a possibility? That it was kept closed because it was so quiet?

The entire theme park is closed tomorrow ;)

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

The way the conversation has been edited doesn't really make sense, whereas it does if the Alton Towers line is included, although had it not been for the quote referencing Alton Towers in the article you wouldn't think anything of it.

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Here's a wild bit of speculation... This article quotes David Walliams mentioning a "Gangsta Granny Alton Towers ride" in some Britain's Got Talent related thing. Now of course it could just be something that he spontaneously made up in the context of the conversation, although something a...

Re: Toverland

It would seem that Fenix's lift hill has today been topped off, as shown in this video . Photos posted on Toverland's minisite also show that other sections of the exterior layout have also begun to go vertical now too. https://2018.toverland.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/180418_1920x1280_Fenix_05-...

Re: Project 2020

I have read suggestions that the trees being cut down in between The Swarm and Stealth was to clear space for whatever the 2020 investment turns out to be, so that would potentially give them a wider site to work with. Couldn't really complain about a new B&M in the UK, but I still hold out hope...

It would seem that on-ride photos have now returned to Galactica, with the camera apparently located on the last bend.
