Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Hmm.. now that I think about it.. they did use a lot of the rock they dug out from Nemesis' pit, and used it for the surrounding area of Forbidden Valley, you can see the excavation marks still :) Yeah I agree, I especially love the part in the queue than goes over the bridge near the water fall, as...

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Welcome to the forum :P

And I think they will keep the One Tree Path open, as it was very useful for the end of last season when I went. sure we'll find out soon enough in 3 weeks almost :)

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I agree that Nemesis is better overall themed, and ride experience is possibly.. the best in the park, however I do find it hard to see its design better than The Smiler, to cram 3 minutes, and 25 seconds into the space of where Black Hole used to be is quite remarkable.. where the theming of The Sm...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I'm sure, at this rate, you won't be disappointed with Wicker Man being open.
Fingers crossed nothing happens from now to the season opening!

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

I'm sure it will all be open at first, but eventually.. like how Th13teen is, they will close off the parts due to numbers.. I can see the queues being similar to Th13teen after a season or 2 goes by.. oh well, less queue for me :lol

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Depending on what type of effect, you don't necessarily need extractor fans, plus there are different type of extractor fans other than roof installations, could be on a wall, or joining into another room to be extracted there instead, in the ground to be extracted via a pipe outside.. I don't neces...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It is odd that the 2 teasers now have had that spinning camera/room.. I don't personally think it'll be in the Maintennce Shed as there is hardly any room for such a device like you say.. Maybe in the pre-show area? Or maybe it's just showing you a quick glance in the pre-show area with the camera s...

There is definitely something about this ride that we don't know, that trailer brings so much hype! I ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

You also have to bear in mind.. if the train is going that speed on that section of track, with a half full train..

Imagine the speed coming out of those 2 sound tunnels, with that extreme banked turn and to the turn with the camera.. it is going to be quite a spectacular thing to witness!

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Well doesn't that look good! Not gonna lie, I can't wait to walk through the new route under the lift, different angle of the ride for great photography!

Like Dom said, the signage is simple but very effective! cant wait to see this beast at night for Scarefest!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

They have been quite weird with the Wicker Man's face(s)..

Just a note, this will be the maintenance shed yes.. what's the black board in the back for where on the other side is normal track to the station?

6 wooden carriages??

Is that right?? Sure that's a mix up right there?

And that wording is confusing as hell.. whoever wrote that needs a slap.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

As cool as that simulation is.. we have to remember it is a recreation, and someone's hopes for the ride. (Even though the ride layout is already seeable so why make a different layout I have no idea..). Where I do hope we will have something like that ending, (not as bright obviously, pitch black.....

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I don't see the reason why AT would charge £55 for a Season Pass.. when then the ticket price stays at the £50 mark for 1 day.. it doesn't make sense.. either way I will be purchasing a season pass! I agree a figure of around £30 for 1 adult is a fair price with the current situation of rides and at...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Not gonna lie.. that made me laugh.. I'm sorry. If anything I think a similar ending to Mystic Timbers will be what we receive.. however even if there is nothing, it's still a good experience that AT was in need of. Since news is slow now.. what's the likelihood we'll be seeing the TV Advert end of ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

You know what would be a fun/cool effect.. as you are in the station and see the tunnel where the maintenance shed is linked to, it's completely engulfed in mist/smoke to represent a burning effect from the maintenance shed.. I still believe this ride has more to offer than we know, and I'm betting ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Seems a really good way to have a piece of AT I guess.. but I bet after a short period of time, vandalism to the bricks will occur from people who just do it 'for a laugh' or '#Yolo'.
