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,...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I'm kinda betting that the 2 drop sections will be slightly different from each other, with them having different audio effects, still quite an interesting development happening! Also I had no idea they were planning something else for Jurassic Park, I wonder if it maybe a Flying Dinosaur clone or s...

Apparently there is a strong rumor going around that Thorpe's next coaster will be a B&M Mini Dive, which I kinda hope not! Hyper or RMC!!!

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...

Re: Alton Towers Magic Making Museum

I went for an interview at the Magic HQ at AT a few months ago and around the corridors they had various posters one the walls showing concept art for Hex and Air, there were also models including one of Splash Landings dotted around.

Re: Ferrari World - Abu Dhabi

From what I'm told by friends from the park, Mission Ferrari is having a few tweaking issues that they need to iron out (apparently they have been having rollback problems). The original opening was this summer, but its apparently being delayed to at least October. Shame, but hopefully it'll be grea...
