Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

For 4 seconds of footage, I am very impressed. It is also very effective in the daylight too!

Re: Liseberg

That was my initial thought too, Chris. Having some kind of lighting effect would add a feature to the ride, especially in a park located in a city.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It is disappointing to see an image of the trains leaked, however, it does look they have been tied into the theme well with lots of detail. It will be nice when the side profile is released, to see if the detail continues all the way around :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

https://i.imgur.com/K7e0tnJ.gif The GIF does look good. I still believe there will be an element of smoke though. I think until we can see all the effects working in real life, it is hard to tell what the overall appearance will be. One thing is for sure, we have a visually stunning coaster with wh...

Thanks for the link, Chris :)
I didn't know that. By the look of those panels, getting into the trains must have been troublesome?

Re: Land of the Tiger - 2018

It makes me wonder if this is the theming for Tiger Rock's station building? It looks like the station layout.

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

It does look to be a very nice addition, with great theming which is scaled to the ride. With Toy Story 4 planned as well, this will be a popular area!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Even though these are promotional images, I am confident we will still get a decent end result. I am still expecting a similar effect, perhaps without so much of the lingering fog, similar to that pictured in the second photo above, posted by Jack.

Re: Towers Loving Care

In some ways, I agree with you, however, I do believe money would still be allocated to heritage projects such as the Towers or garden restoration without being forced to do so, with or without the Towers Loving Care project. It would be the same for any maintenance of historical buildings, be it Wa...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The outbuilding near the Wicker Man structure looks like an old farm building, similar to a pig pen. It makes me wonder if that is a water tower next to it? I also wonder if they left The Welcoming up in case of any unforseen delays, similar to The Smiler. I honesty thought it would reopen after the...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I'm looking forward to riding it in the summer, however, could your disappointment be down to there not being much theming or individuality? What I mean by that is that the coaster is intertwined with other coasters. therefore losing impact, especially at low levels?
