Re: TTSP Team Changes

Does this mean Community Advocates can now be renamed Glitter Advocates? :sus:

Genuinely great job done on your time with the team, Dom, it'll be weird not using you as my forum go to guy :lol

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Friendly reminder that the leak that gave us the name "Wicker Man" also gave us the logo used around the park for the Welcoming and SW8 before they happened ;) http://www.towerstimes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Wicker-Man-SW8.jpeg Also guys, just to point out this really is a discussi...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

New trailer just released themed around the Welcoming...I can't spot anything beyond what we already know here to be honest but I like the style that they're going for.





There is also a new page on the Welcoming website to support the trailer

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I can't help but feel SW8 will have it's own sub-area to Mutiny Bay, as obviously on it's own SW8s theme does not fit any area around it, but with some slight tweaking of the setting of Mutiny Bay, it could be that the Village, or the ride, or whatever it's being themed to, is inland to where Mutiny...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

I can see that Merlin have lots of fans here, so I appreciate that I'm not going to get anywhere. BPB is the leading UK park IMO, Merlin have slowly destroyed the magic that Alton Towers had. Days at BPB for me are much more enjoyable than days at Towers, and at the end of the day, that's why I pre...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Saying that BPB is higher quality than Merlin is like saying that Drayton Manor surpasses Europa Park in quality. It makes no sense at all. The company have done an amazing job since taking over the shambles that was Tussauds from 2002-2007. As a quick refresher of what Merlin have bought about: Saw...

Re: Ride pin badges

It's a shame that some people buy all of the pin badges to the point they sell out, only then to sell them on eBay, if AT put a limit on the amount of badges per person I'm sure that the problem would disappear and there'd be more than enough for everyone interested in buying one :)

I don't, I've not found a single ride to make me sick yet.

I do know someone who got very sick on Air/Galactica though... :lol

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

As stated at the TTSP Summer Sizzler behind the scenes at the Thrills Workshop, it's apparently just a nightmare scene to make work. I think they would have much better investment removing it and having actors in the tunnel as seen on press night earlier this year. Not only is it unexpected but it m...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I believe SW7 had the name "The Smiler" leaked in similar fashion to how SW8 was leaked not long ago. I vividly remember Towers2Go (Remember that channel? good times) reporting on it from the SW7 site which is a fun memory :lol So due to this I am inclined to believe SW8 will be named Wick...

So, I finally left the UK this week to visit Phantasialand. This is my review of the park, the rides, and possibly more. Note that Chiapas Die Wasserbahn was closed for the entirety of my stay (and will be closed for a while if the rumours of it breaking a chain are true). Berlin The first thing you...

Re: Phantasialand

Hey guys, Was at the park over the last few days and it's weird to say that it seems easier to photograph the prototype the prototype at the Vekoma plant than to actually photograph the ride itself. It's like a military operation to keep that ride hidden. What you can see of it, however, is massive....

CV, I'm having a hard time seeing it from your point of view here. Hex has been made infinitely better and I didn't notice any loss of atmosphere, and the lightened vault was a plus as you could see everything as well as having new strobes for it too, adding more effect. I honestly haven't experienc...
