Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Off the topic slightly, but if THORPE do have a wooden coaster, then we are certainly not looking at 2019/20. It would be likely to come after that. I think it is very likely for them to add one though, especially around 'Old Town'.

I personally think Wicker Man will be very well received!

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

It is looking very, very impressive. I have a lot of high hopes for the finished product. Let's hope it sets the bar in terms of the standards we expect from a themed attraction!

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

They have the machines in the park, but I'm not sure about the hotels?

It makes me wonder if the stand will be used for F&B, serving something hot and spicy?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The only fire effects, I expect, will be from the actual Wicker Man structure where it will be constructed from metal or within the pre-show where it is controlled or contained. Everything else will be special effects as it is obvious that fire and wood do not fuse together naturally. A little Merli...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Could it be a similar effect as to what is achieved in Derren Brown during the tunnel section?
Instead of flames, the glow from beneath added with smoke may be enough?

Re: Towers Loving Care

Towers Loving Care has posted a TLC update... What a pane! Guess how many pieces of glass were removed, cleaned and replaced? Around 11,500,  so many in fact that we had to bring in additional glaziers locally from Stoke on Trent and also Wolverhampton who could undertake the specialised work as the...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Mine arrived today too :D
I really like 'Welcome to THORPE PARK Resort', 'The Power of 10', 'Inferno Reigns' and obviously 'The Big Top Theme'. There are more which I am sure will grow on me further with another listen :)

With regard to IMAScore CDs, they all tend to be like that but you do get used to it very quickly!

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

To be honest I did produce that in order to show why I didn’t think it’d work. To me it just seems like its a very odd ‘area’ considering you won’t see it’s headline attraction for what 60% of it. Personally I’m anticipating either the front strip of pavement outside Wicker Man and the courtyard ma...

Yes, it has definitely been turned down. In addition, the MOJ boards which were installed on the X Sector entrance should return too!

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

The Haunted Hollows could easily be rethemed with a similar style to what is currently seen in 'The Welcoming'.

I think enough time has passed for it to be reintroduced. It would be great to see The Smiler theme brought back to opening standards.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

I've shared my thoughts before, but I believe that we will see no retheme of Mutiny Bay. If any retheme takes place, I do agree that Gloomy Wood (Haunted Hollows) will be partly rethemed up to Duel and become part of Wicker Man. To be honest, I'm just expecting a visually spectacular ride which is n...

The most scary thing is all the time passed. I can remember lots of these being constructed.
