Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

This is going to look amazing at Scarefest but it's a real shame the smoke won't be present on the actual ride as it gives a great atmosphere around the Wicker Man. I'm assuming the smoke machines were purely for the promo photos anyway.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

There's a 5 metre Freefall drop and then a backwards section



Stops in the maintenance shed, a section of track turns a 180 so your hanging upside down, artificial fire below lights up all around, you free fall and then all goes dark. your dead lol.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Have to admit the quality standard isn't quite there for the price. I'm all for limited edition stuff but don't feel this is worth the price.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I do believe this will become the best ride in the UK. It looks incredible, can't wait to head over this spring.

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Coco - 8/10 (easily one of the best films out recently) The Darkest Hour - 6.5/10 (the film won't be for everyone, I watched it simply for Gary Oldman's performance tbh and he excelled.) The Post - 8/10  Downsizing - 6/10 (the premise of this movie has so much potential ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

They've removed the POV but everything else is exactly the same after playing them both side by side and the POV is cut & extended with the sun through the trees scene.

Tweaks to the color are a lot more vibrant in the new version.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Whoever reported that has too much time on their hands. Enthusiasts are enthusiasts at the end of the day, to some people it may bother them. For The Smiler the world's first tag was warranted as it is a stated fact it has the most inversions in the world but with Wickerman & before that Galact...

Wow I wonder what they're gonna put in to replace them? I personally think they might just have a bit where you pay at the turnstiles.

Would make sense I guess. To save money hiring additional people to sit in the booths all day just have machines.

Originally I wasn’t sure on the track colour but it looks a lot better than I imagined it would.

I love how Amanda said the track / support color echoes the sunsets of Blackpool. lol.
It really is coming along and I can't wait to head up to Blackpool to jump on this.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Loving all these Wickerman teasers, the best marketing material Alton Towers have done in a very long time. Really digging Wickerman & it's overall aesthetic & feel.

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Watched a fair few movies over the last couple of months, won't go into detail but will list from top to bottom (best to least enjoyable). Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - 9/10 (so far the frontrunner for the Oscar award for me) The Disaster Artist - 8.5/10 The Big Sick - 8.5/10 The Flori...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Funny you posted that Rob as I was watching that same video yesterday morning.  I was thinking back to the aerial images and the large rectangular object in the theming structures shoulder which could be one of these systems. The only problem with these is they use lighting and surely the environmen...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'll reserve judgment on the tacky world first tag when I see how they've incorporated everything to do with the attraction. Must admit though when I did read it I made the facial expression of my avatar. Can't fault the promo videos/artwork/snippets of audio apart from the countdown videos. It'll d...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Just a FYI when I went on YouTube last night it said 17 minutes ago so looks like these will adhere to following SW8 and will be posted the same time each night at 8pm I'd say. With the reveal being on the 8th as well I wouldn't put it past them for an 8am timeslot.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Thinking along the lines of something happening in that enclosed section - we know from the plans that there is expected to be some form of preshow. What if this pre-show is the start of the ritual The Beornen make you a part of. Riding the coaster is the main section of the ritual, then the enclos...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I don't think they are nitpicking about the proportions of the theming structure. Don't forget the width has to be wide enough for the track & all its supports to pass through it three times which is bound to make the "shoulders" extremely wide.

It'll be at a set time. They'll be inviting press for the unveiling and they'll, in turn, post their articles for it as the full details and website are shared online.
