Re: Cedar Point

I know I've said it before, but it just looks incredible! Having a quick look through some of the media coverage from today the reviews all seem to be very positive so far, although of course the real test will be when the ride opens to the GP. It just looks to be a stunning coaster - I really hope ...

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

According to ThrillGeek on Twitter , Busch Gardens Tampa are due to make a big announcement next Monday (30th April) with the only hint being given in the email they've sent out being 'Thrills are on Tap'. With the recent markings being spotted on Gwazi could this announcement be regarding the futur...

Does Wickerman offer one shot Fastracks? It hasn't been advertised as doing so but neither were DBGT's...

I'm afraid not. The only Fastrack is bundled in with the Gold and Platinum package, or with a VIP Merlin Annual Pass.

Re: Cedar Point

In a blog post posted earlier today , Cedar Point have announced that they have slightly increased the height limit for Steel Vengeance to 52" (approximately 1.3m). The ride previously had a 48" restriction (approximately 1.2m). It's certainly an interesting move from the park, and suggest...

Re: Six Flags Fiesta Texas

We've been given the first look at the trains for Wonder Woman Golden Lasso in a Facebook Live video posted by the park earlier today. I've managed to take a screenshot, which although not the best quality, gives a look at the train for those who may not be able to view the video: https://i.imgur.co...

Re: Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Wonder Woman is now testing on three trains as shown in this video which has been posted to YouTube sm2FW_IbKow As with previous tests, it is looking very fast! Even with three trains though I do have some concerns regarding the ride's throughout with the trains being single file in design, I think ...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

Having had the chance to experience the ride during the press night, I have to say I was plesantly surprised by it. The level of theming inside is fantastic with Easter eggs for fans of The Walking Dead and also a few nods to X:/ No Way Out. The pre-show sets up the story for the attraction nicely, ...

Re: Towers Loving Care

Having done Duel at the weekend have to say I have mixed feelings about what they've done to it. As good as it is that it has got some much needed attention, I really don't like how some of the neon and UV paint has been done - in places it's just too much, almost garish. There are a fair few elemen...

I have literally written about almost every detail of this ride, from the plans, concepts and theming, right d...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I've been thinking. What if Alton towers called the weather warning late on purpose to generate media involvement and get more people talking about it? I can assure you that Towers would in no way have done that. They were all set for opening on Saturday 17th March - that's why the Press Night was ...

Re: Legoland Windsor Resort - The Future

As reported on  SouthParks News, new plans have been submitted for the Haunted House ride. Perhaps most interestingly the ride is now proposed to be a madhouse, similar to Hex, instead of the drop tower that was proposed previously. If this gets the go ahead, it will be Legoland's new attraction for...

It seems to be rolling out the update gradually so it's showing for some people but not others. I'm sure everyone will be able to see it in the next couple of days :)

It’s quite harsh to think we are in the presence of people who have been on the ride, but can’t say anything.. as much as we all want to know what happens, I bet it’s even harder to keep it all a secret when people will be guessing what happens, and only the Admins know if it’s true or false :lol B...

Out of interest, Can someone confirm if it has seatbelts or not?

I'm interested in finding out but so far I can't see any! :D

There are no seatbelts on the train, just lapbars. In my opinion this is the right choice :)
