Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I do agree that Blade should be replaced with that sort of ride.. but as much as this would please a lot of people, it would also take away a smaller ride for smaller guests, or for people with not such a tolerance to bigger rides.. If anything i’d love to see the old BoneShaker site in Dark Forest ...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

SW9 won’t be till about 2022.. if Merlin stick to their 4 year scheme.. although due to the incident in 2015.. I don’t know how this now will be, as SW7 was 2013.. meaning SW8 should have been 2017.. so maybe 2021..

Hopefully when that time comes, it will also be the end of Rita :lol

Re: Congo River Rapids - General Discussion

One thing that I’ve always wondered.. why are British rapids so.. bland and boring? Compared to rapids in America or Germany.. great example.. Popeyes at Islands of Adventure.. just curious as you don’t tend to get that wet, but on popeyes you get absolutely soaked. I know for one the weather will h...

Re: Congo River Rapids - General Discussion

Wouldn’t all this just be sorted if seatbelts were put on the rafts? If people didn’t adhere to the rules for safety and wearing your seatbelt, then what blame can be given to Alton. And if people want to move because they don’t want to get wet.. why the hell would you go on a wet ride in the first ...

Re: Cedar Point

Think they need to shut the ride down.. do a full re-test and maintenance check from RMC themselves, then re-open to the public when ready. The ride is having a lot of problems that shouldn’t be happening.. even with the reputation RMC have, I understand there will always be technical issues and sm...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I definitely would like to see Charlie rethemed in 2019 and from what's been said on here it is looking likely. Either a fantasy theme or the most unfortunately likely option is a David Walliams IP. Not big on IP but once they add that, that means that CCL is on the chopping block for 2020. But Coa...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I could see that happening.. But seriously, the park needs to add 2 new flats at least. Don’t care about themeing, just 2 new concepts that have proven successful in other parks around the world.. the park for older riders is now just a coaster park with the odd 1 or 2 filler rides. Although saying ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The temperature in the pre-show area is actually surprising cool, but as Chris has stated, the stretch of queue just before the baggage area is the hottest part, so your body will naturally adjust to that heat and feel cooler when going inside.. the shop is usually open so ice cream and drinks are a...

Bit of a late reply, but quite a lot of the ride is actually up by Merlin Studios North, behind Cloud Cuckoo Land.


You are joking?

Why remove a ride and keep part of its remains for years? That’s quite depressing :(

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If anything on the sound tunnels, I think the first tunnel needs slightly more smoke, not too much, and lights down the sides to look like burning embers.. The second tunnel ideally wants to have more Smoke aswell as a little gust of wind removes all the smoke in the tunnel. Apart from that, I agree...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Was there anything said about the last part of the ride? As it is just dark with nothing, it is quite a loss of opportunity.. the music however kicks in and it sounds like something is about to happen..

Hopefully some additions to the 2019 season perhaps?!

So.. for the first time in a long time.. this being a few years.. the Tickler is actually working for once, (it’s always been off when I come), all screens and audio are working outside.. The Giggler is not working as far as I can see.. and the interior projectors are working except one to the left ...

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

I agree.. was a bit extreme for someone who slipped.. I assume they were taking precautions, just in case.. I have checked online, Google says it’s open but how accurate that is I have no idea, I can’t see if the water park is open on the website.. I would assume it’s open? Like you said, people sli...

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

In all the years of Splash Landings and the Water Park being open.. i’ve never heard the words “she was stuck”.. From what falling over? Or on the flume? There are plenty of signs with health and safely warnings, and instructions show how to ride the flumes safely.. this sounds so fishy.. I bet she ...

So.. nothing has still happened to this site.. there are pictures everywhere of how overgrown the cars parks are, and looking at all the pictures shown for the land where a lot of the rides used to stand. It has become a very high active site for wildlife to live there. As much as I would love to se...

Just a smallish update on Harry Potter, uploaded 5 days ago, no new Jurassic World info, and just a general look at both IoA and Universal.
