Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

If the trains were to have been delivered.. which way to Alton would you think would of been the route.. A50 to Uttoxeter and up through Alton.. or the back ways through Ashbourne.. I didn't want to say anything because I thought it wouldn't of been the trains, however on my way back home from work...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Judging by how Merlin handle their marketing.. I agree we will see more of these clues (obviously) for this month, and maybe some other small teases for January, but I don't think we'll see much of solid marketing until February time. This would make sense as it would bring the GP to look at what is...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

This video  is linked to on the SW8/Welcoming site - what's up with the music? I can't tell if it's just music from the welcoming, or if it's the first glimpse we might be getting of the ride's soundtrack. Sounds... weird  :| It sounds something out of Dark Forest aha, I didn't go to Scarefest this...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I could see that.. but why have 2 of the same thing? We can see the massive structure from the queue, so there wouldn't really be a point.. unless like you say just for entrance sake.. I do still think they will add the Themeing Envelope 1, a lot of access was needed for the site, so something could...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

If it had to be for anything.. my money is on Capt. Barnacles theory, would make sense as the building was only just being started before closed season.. if more than 1 appears then we'll know they could be anywhere on site.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

The only difference I can tell from those on Mystic Timbers, and on SW8, they face the opposite direction from that on Mystic Timbers, than on SW8.. I'm not saying they are anti-rollback.. things.. but I understand why they could of been anti-rollback.. things (what are they?). because on Mystic Tim...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I don't think they'll be painting the wood, as it fits with the ride.. plus there is a lot to do, it'll have a polished treatment done to it to protect from weathering, unless this has already been applied to the wood before it got to AT. Either way, the vandals will always happen, it is a shame as ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Wardley Drop.. love it :lol

Yeah the height difference between the top of the lift hill and the bottom of the site is dramatically different.. I'm looking forward to seeing what speed the trains will be travelling at when it hits the bend near the queue shop.. those Lateral G's..

That first turn just reminds me of Nemesis.. I'm sure that section was one Mr Wardley's inputs for sure! Can't wait.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

And I'm sure some of us will be making our way to the hotels over the winter season, so could possibly see things in the parking lots or storage areas.. similar to when The Smiler trains were on the car park, (is that right? My memory is rubbish), could have the same thing this year! The Smiler tra...

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

Has nobody considered the possibility that they have Gloomy extended to the point of SW8 and Duel, so all that land in between can be for other attractions? The flume area with the second lift could easily house another flat ride as the trees are rather tall in this area.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Not gonna lie, it's going to be upsetting not to see this ride now for a while, however now we can look forward to seeing the trains coming in the next month or so.. 500 tests, then re-tests with people is quite a number.. is that common?

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I know we are a while off yet but I'm looking forward to the tv advert for the ride, I love Alton's adverts, they're usually wicked Its a shame they don't advertise The Smiler one anymore.. the Halloween one was brilliant! But I can imagine the structure definitely being the focal point of the adve...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I do believe the only "Unique" feature on this ride will probably be how close the structure is to the track, it looked very close on pictures back when the wrapping wasn't there, and that was without any theming! There won't be any sort of secret element due to us already seeing the entir...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Getting discussion back to a more simple level, what does everyone think we may see in the pre-lift turn section? I am hoping for something exciting to really kick the ride off! I also hope for something to kick the ride off.. but judging by the speed on NL2 videos (I know it's not a good reference...
