Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

I would advise anybody who has the video not share it. Not only will it spoil DBGT for many, Merlin may well take action against yourself and the person who filmed the video :)

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

On Ride Photos for Galactica have indeed returned, and it's far better than the strange ones in the queue line. I feel this is even better positioned than Air's old spot, some very good reactions on the final turn :)

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I'm honestly very hopeful for Alonso this year, he's been stuck in a bad car for so long and it seems he's finally getting back to where he wants to be. I don't expect amazing results for him (however one or two podiums isn't out of the question), but it's nice seeing the normal mid-low tier teams l...

For it to need trims it'd need to be overshooting the brake run, and luckily it isn't doing that ;)

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

To comment on Jack's opinion that this is the best woodie in the UK, I would have to disagree. Personally for me Megafobia is a much better woodie, if you were to qualify it on roller coaster experience alone. Obviously as a themed attraction Wicker Man is vastly superior. I will say it was tough s...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I won't waste my time on what the ride consists of as it is all listed above (thank you all for saving me typing ;) ), however these are my thoughts and feelings about Wicker Man; I think I make a very good case when I say the coaster itself is not the best thing in the UK, possibly not the best thi...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The advert is there to sell the product to the masses, not the story to enthusiasts and I feel that needs to be remembered. This ad will hype up non enthusiasts to ride Wicker Man in the end, and that's what we all want considering how long we've waited for a wooden coaster, isn't it? Remember guys,...

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

We must hope the queue moves fast enough so people don't have time to deface anything. I also very much hope Alton Towers put the time and money into fixing anything vandalized, as you say, it's pretty much inevitable

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I've listened to the audio snippet twice now, and it's pretty nice, if a bit generic. But geez, the audio is dark for a family coaster. The ride is literally about human sacrifice ;) From bits of area audio I've heard from videos today though, it sounds a lot more festival-esque (Similar, but not t...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I honestly don't think the fire effects will have too much issue operating in the rain, I believe the problem that the Swarm and Scorpion Express have is ignition, and looking at how Wicker Man will be working, there will be no such issues. There's many instances of different fire effects around the...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Worth noting that the video has confirmed the ride will feature permanent lighting near the entrance, this is in the shape of tribal torches, which is great to see at a UK park :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I think the ride will look absolutely stunning in the day or not. I don't think they're showing everything off yet in terms of fire, either. But even if it is just that it looks stunning in my opinion. Even if it does look better at night or on a dark evening, it will still look stunning during the ...
