Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Saw the following image on Twitter , and was intrigued by the posts which have appeared in the middle of the site. They appear to connect to the point where block paving for the queue-line currently finished, so I wonder if they may be indicative of more the queue-line's route. https://pbs.twimg.co...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm still wondering where the hell the queue line goes from that entrance.. does it go through the beams? In a tunnel? I'm so confused :-k intresting choice of queue entrance, however I can imagine the feeling of excitement you get as the GCI train races past :) I think it's great that they're utili...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I wonder what they have been up to today whilst the parks closed.. if anything at all. There have been suggestions elsewhere that Towers have taken advantage of the theme park being closed today by filming promotional material on the construction site with the 'head' uncovered - presumably this wou...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

The ride should be called Wicker head & shoulders rather than Wicker Man. In all seriousness, this looks like it will be very impressive! Sponsored by "heads & shoulders" ??? :lol That would be hilarious, especially as the theming element looks to be a right good head chopper haha...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Holy cow I was right for once.. that to me looks like a rams head, which is ironic because Satanism indicates a goats/rams head.. putting the marketing and that theory, could be a possibility.. some dark, dark stuff Towers are doing here possibly, but this is getting really exciting now! Know it's a...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

SECRET ELEMENT!!! :lol
Probably something to do with the theming structure that they don't want us to see.. I do have a feeling that theming structure is going to have a big unveil of what it is, and have a few hidden surprises, fingers crossed. Time will tell.

Knew it couldn't be finished at the highest point! Could be its neck or part of its head.. if it is indeed a Wicker Man

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Don't know if anyone has noticed the site currently on TS facebook page.. but the first drop will go into another tunnel by the looks of it, as that 'extreme banking' turn has had a few more struts put up before the banking, and a tunnel strut has been added as well. Whether or not the tunnel will ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

@PhNx Survivor: The drop definitely has an open air portion at the bottom just before rising back up into another tunnel. The bents would have indicated if it was continuous. I'm only saying that due to plans showing it was a full sound tunnel for that segment, and as people were wondering if it wo...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Just looking at the pictures on Facebook, that first turn after the lift hill is more banked than I thought it would be, looks similar to Nemesis beginning in a way..

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It's quite far ahead of where I thought they would be right now with regards to construction.. I'd give another 3/4 weeks and we'll have a full Coaster structure complete.. cant wait to see the rest of the area take shape!

Not heard the Mystic Timbers audio from IMA Score, but I really enjoyed Helix audio from them, I haven't been able to listen to DBGT audio much cause its usually always broken down :lol However I'm sure whoever they go with, (Hopefully IMA Score), we'll get a great audio soundtrack from the provide...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Think it'll be better for drainage of water over the bricks/surfaces, take The Smiler for example, the amount of times there are huge puddles due to bad planning of drainage is rather high, don't think AT will want to do that again, but I do agree that the bricks could of been a nice graphite colour...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Maybe this is where John Wardley had his input :lol (Won't let me quote you T0mPr1ce) As for the same structure under the top of the lift, in the maintenance building, this could just be transfer track segments, but it does beg the question that they cover the entrance of the maintenance building up...
