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.

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Justice League - 3.5/10 In my opinion, this movie is a big disappointment. $300 million spent, an ensemble cast as well as two? great directors and it is just an absolute diabolical hash job. The runtime was too short as well as Steppenwolf has got to be the worst CGI antagonist I have ever seen in ...

Isn't the current construction by the Enchanted Village to do with a Santa tipi for Christmas?

Could be in this case but I'm sure Tipis are a part of the development of the Enchanted Village.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer - 8.5/10 This is the second movie of Yorgos Lanthimos that I've seen and for me personally, he is a director/writers work I'll follow very closely from now on. The first movie was The Lobster which was genius, funny, original, whacky. This movie is basically a black reve...

The Enchanted Village expansion has already begun construction I'm assuming for a launch next year.

I have read also there will be a large £18 million / 250 lodge accommodation site in a nearby quarry 4 miles away subject to planning permission approval.

Re: Fireworks

but the storyline was absolutely appaling! What the hell were they thinking!?!? It was beyond shocking. That is the sort of idea that gets rejected at the first brainstorm. They've gone back to basics. Hearing from guests directly what Alton Towers Resort means to them, how it makes them feel, the ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Without the accompanying video, this really doesn't say a lot apart from it's a theatrical experience over a world first & safety after The Smiler is paramount which we kind of know anyway. 

Not sure if it's my end but I can't play the video at all on my phone or laptop.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

doesn't look like much in the maintenance shed Could be just that, a maintenance building. I think I've said before but with it being a wooden coaster I'm not sure how maintenance bays work for those, I've not been on enough to fully know but with steel, you can do switch tracks to an outer building.
