Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpKEvExXUAUxiNK.jpg Motiongate have announced that they will be bringing a Halloween event to the park, with the main draw to the event being a live action Saw maze, at an event called 'Fright Nights' (sound familiar?) The event will also have family offerings and is the...

Re: Drayton Manor

Its gonna be taken down at the end of this season according to the park manager. Which is a shame because I haven't got the cred. But apparently it rides awful. As Lady said its incredibly unreliable and hasn't been running for most of the year, I doubt it will be replaced with anything major. If th...

Re: Project 2020

There's a small teaser on top of the Blair Witch building which you can see when exiting Inferno. There's a piece of wood with "MMXX = ?" on it. From the creators of 'Saw: The Ride', 'The Walking Dead: The Ride' and 'Angry Birds Land' comes 'Blair Witch: The Ride'! A mini dive coaster!!! ...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Interestingly enough, the website lists an email and a phone number which you can contact for any questions. I decided to phone them and it goes strait to a dead number, hanging up strait away. I then sent an email but got a response saying that the email domain can't be found or doesn't exist. This...

Re: Six Flags Dubai

I’ve heard those rumours too, but I’m fairly certain that the park has secured funding, from images I’ve seen construction isn’t really in action currently and has slowed down, I believe this is due to them changing up a few things, it’s still on track for a late 2019 opening, will that happen? I sa...

Icon VS Wicker Man: An Honest Opinion

Right, this maybe a controversial coaster nerd statement, as pretty much everyone I've told has responded with things like "Don't worry, opinions can be wrong" and "Whats wrong with you?" But, I want to just put it out there for the world to here, because I just have to say it. I...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Finally rode Wickerman for the first time today and let me just say WOW I LOVED IT, I did it back row and middle row and they were both fantastic experiences, a world class coaster and my first wooden coaster! I think I still prefer Nemesis in terms of layout, but overall, this is my fav ride in the...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

I was at the park today with a few theme park fans when this got announced, one of them got on the phone and talked to someone who apparently works in higher management. According to them it's going where Charlie is and will have its layout changed, with the elevator being the first thing you enter,...

Also I had no idea they were planning something else for Jurassic Park, I wonder if it maybe a Flying Dinosaur clone or s...

Re: SW9

I've had a few thoughts, but I do think the next SW will be aimed at teens/adults, with SWX (SW10) another thrill/family. Reason being, SW5 Air (high thrill), SW6 Th13teen (family thrill), SW7 Smiler (high thrill), SW8 Wicky (family thrill), so if the towers are going by this model (which I think is...
