Re: Alton Towers - Music and Videos

I just checked and it is on the Alton Towers Scarefest app, although this is no longer available to download unless you have it already on your store account.

Re: Ride pin badges

The controversial SW8 wood (which I love) is being sold in batches, so I hope this will be similar. I expect more will be placed on sale next weekend.

Re: SW9

I would actually like SW9 to be delayed by 12 months from its current schedule and instead a role out of a new flat to every area in the park as that’s what the park is desperate for at the moment, 4 or 5  10/15 minute queue time flats. It would lessen the capacity issue across the park and rejuven...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

From those YouTube screenshots, you can really make out the face on one side. I'm more convinced it will be looking up now with the ram looking down towards the track.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just thinking along the whole "Big event at Halloween thing"... Alton Towers have their Firework Show at the end of October / Start of November which always sees an display themed of most of the major rides. If i recall correctly, when The Smiler was opened they interpreted 20% of the sho...

Re: Scarefest

Sub Species, in my opinion, was poor last year. Mine Tours was very good and put me on edge. Although I can't say what this year is like, Mine was far better!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I must agree.
With regards to the human side, it is really hard to tell. I'm going purely on the raw folds. If the mouth was placed high though then it could see flames burst out! Exciting times ahead!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just had a quick go at drawing in the two sides. Here is a basic interpretation of how the structure could look. I think we are looking at something double faced instead of just one.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I've gone raw on both sides but I'm trying to work out how they would blend. I'm sure I'm way off though :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I think most certainly it will be bursting out of the ground. This ties in with the groundbreaking tagline originally seen, although it could appear to be burning to the ground. I don't see it being tied to an IP though. With credit to TS 'evilcod' for the original photo, I've had a go at drawing th...

Re: Scarefest

I wouldn't worry too much. Events always tend to improve over time as changes are made! I've heard that filters are going on to some floodlights this week. Let's hope that is true!

Re: Scarefest

Time slots are allocated to control the flow of guests and so the resort will know roughly how many people they have around or in the Towers at any one time.   This year, you have 2 hours to complete the mazes, however, mazes can usually be completed in any order. If there is a delay or queue on any...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I'll be purchasing one, although I do think they are expensive for what is essentially a block of wood. I just hope they don't sell out!
