Re: Duel - General Discussion

I'm really happy with the overall improvements on Duel and I think as a whole they have/are doing a good job. The only thing I would say is that, after talking to some GP friends, they could do with putting a sign up on the main entrance/ doors saying some a long the line of, "A million apologi...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I've just read about the whole David Williams IP idea and I can see it working well. Also both David William's books and Roald Dahl's books have very similar illustrations/art styles so it would be realitivly easy to change Charlie into the new IP. Overall this is very interesting development

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Fast and Furious has recently begun soft opening and it looks to be similar to Kong. The Tim Tracker has done quite a good preview/walk through of the ride but be warned this video contains spoilers of the queue/pre-show

Re: Black Hole soundtrack

So if that's the lift soundtrack, what's this one? 0OIK-iSqGb4 Why I am thinking were there two? That is the lift hill sound track that was played as riders ascended the lift and pendulum was the name given to the song. The station soundtrack was posted above and is called Station Earth.

Re: Christmas & New Year at the Alton Towers Resort

I've never personally visited due to the restrictions however like mentioned before the park looks magical in the snow and just imagine what the towers would look like in the snow. As a only a few attractions are open, which is understandable, I can see something like a Christmas market working real...

Re: Scarefest

I have a feeling that this scarefest is going to be one of the best in recent years what with the four mazes, new additions to existing ones and the all round atmosphere seems like it is starting to build. The only problem is that I don't know if we will see four mazes next year what with the courty...

Re: SW9

Moving the main entrance would free up a lot of space however I don't think that would be needed at the moment because I think towers will expand into the car park near galactica that rarely gets used first as you can argue that some of the path infrastructure is there already with the path to the R...

Re: Ride Downtime

It will most likely be that a fault has occurred that requires urgent attention and cannot wait for the closed season. Health and safety must come before guest satisfaction. Yeah most likely something urgent and if anything needs doing it is probably best to do it now before the busy scarefest/fire...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I know duel alive was really hard to do H&S wise but it would definitely help to expand their offering for families at scarefest and could prove very successful like house of monsters, however people wouldn't want to pay for an already existing ride so I don't know if it could even be made finan...

Re: Scarefest

Although the new scare maze may market the ride wrong I must admit I do have high hopes for it because the last few mazes towers have done have been of a really good standard which I hope will continue. Also the last time they did something like this was with the sanctuary which I never got to ride ...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

i think it needs a whole re-theme. I like the idea of the guns to make it interactive, but i cant stand all of the l.e.d's!! so if there was a technology that could get rid f those that would be good! then re-theme it to an 1800's old gothic mansion with gargoyles out front and a new bone chilling ...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

When I last went to towers a few weeks ago duel was in a right state with many effects not even on. To start with the smell pod in the entrance hall wasn't on. Then when I got onto the ride the cracked wall scene and the dinning room scene had no music on what so ever so we went through that part in...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I wonder if the be chosen at scarefest line could relate to the fourth scare attraction at scarefest. Very much like how the sanctuary and the smiler where linked, so this fourth scare attraction will tell us the story behind SW8?

Re: Oblivion's 20th/21st

I think it would also be nice for them to put the full queue videos back on instead of the weird jump cuts we have now. I understand why they did it but all that has blown over now so I don't see why they don't put the normal videos back on.

The Future of Oblivion (20th and Beyond)

So I was thinking the other day and realised that next year will be Oblivion's 20th birthday. Do you think we will see some signage/merch changes like we did for Nemesis or do you think it would be the year after with SW8 opening, if they celebrate it at all. Personally I would like to see the 20th ...

Re: Galactica - A worth while investment?

I very much agree with Justin about Galactica and I think in some ways it is underrated. Merlin have added extra theming with the addition of the screens in the station, the new staff uniforms, the portal, the soundtrack and the additions to the bridge (Which unfortunately are not looking the best a...
