Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I think the situation will be closely monitored, however, I don't know if they'll give it up easily, especially when a lot of time has been invested in it. I suppose it will all come down to the upkeep and reliability of the attraction.

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

VR does not belong on coasters... never has, never will!

I have no objection if they developed a VR experience on a robo arm, but even then, I think this is a push as everything should be experienced for real!

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

It all depends on the restraints. I believe I was on one of the last, if not last ride before it closed and they were really struggling to get the lock lights engaged. I recall it has been reworked that season too?

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

The actors were removed from the final section before the ride closed. The only Phalanx operators in role were in the preshow, although this was more for batching. There were also hosts in the ride area, therefore, the number of people operating it had been reduced.

I really hope it makes a return :)

Yes, they are amazing. Hopefully, we'll be able to utilise some of the Merlin ones with your permission. I'll get back to you on that! ;)

Re: Legoland Windsor - General Discussion

To be honest, I think having too many passes is confusing. I'm also not keen on the inconsistencies between resorts as there is no clear brand. In the past, this was the 'Annual Pass', but now we have season passes, annual passes were you pay once and now this!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Just looking at Mystic Timers, Wicker Man is going to be a great family thrill. Unlike Th13teen which didn't hit the spot with enthusiasts initially, I strongly believe Alton Towers are on to a winner! As explained by Chris and Adz, I also believe it will be a three train service.

Re: Towers Loving Care

Great to see the building refreshed, adding to the rejuvenated Towers Street. I hope something is done inside as it really did feel neglected at Fireworks.

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 :)
