Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It’s very relieving to hear SW8 is already testing! Should be running perfectly by opening day! Let’s hope this gives them plenty of time to work on theming - in fact, the fact it’s already testing makes me hope that there will be some pretty extensive theming there. Taron had track finished early s...

I absolutely need to make the SW8 opening day event! Would love to hit SMN and Sizzler too - fingers crossed!

Re: ScareMazing 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

Another exceptional event from TTSP! Definitely my favourite Scaremazing so far - also I think possibly our most packed schedule in TTSP event history! :P BTS on Sub Species and House of Monsters was very interesting to start off the day. I found looking around Sub Species especially interesting, as...

Re: Dragon Falls Tiger Retheme - 2018

Thought I’d add my two pence on this topic. Really glad to see Mystic East get a refresh - it really needs it. Dragon Falls’ current theming has been in a bit of a state since the statues around the drop got removed, and the paintwork hardly looks fresh. It’s also nice to hear about some new animal ...

Re: Heide Park

I saw something similar to this going on on the final hills when I saw there in October last year, with engineers walking along the track. I think they’re surveying the structure; I hope this means Colossos is more likely to survive, but I don’t think this tells us anything either way...

Re: Toverland

Interestingly, you can see the beginning is more or less identical to Flug Der Daemonen up until the Immelmann - dive drop, low airtime hill then immelmann (only main change is Flug rolls right on the dive drop, and Fenix seems to roll left due to the turn). Also the 6 car trains are another similar...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

In response to smoothness/upkeep speculation: Modern GCI appear to be pretty good for smoothness. Wodan (when I rode in 2016) was one of the smoothest woodies I've ridden - obviously, RMCs are smoother, but they less traditionally styled wooden coasters. Haven't ridden any other GCIs to compare, how...

Re: Heide Park

This has honestly made me quite sad. When I visited last year I was gutted to miss getting a ride on Colossos - I loved the rest of the park, but it was sad to see their biggest ride down. From what rumblings and rumours I've heard, it is possible that Merlin essentially left the ride to rot for a y...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The chances of The Wickerman being related to an IP are incredibly small in my eyes - Alton hopefully will have decided for SW8, as with The Smiler, a custom theme works better than an IP. Personally I'd also agree with others in saying The Wickerman film is honestly a terrible IP, and I couldn't se...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Gotta say - I like the logo quite a lot. I think on first preferences I prefer this to DBGT's logo; however, Smiler's will probably end up being seen as the more iconic one. The name is fine, about what we were expecting. I'll probably like it more when I get used to calling it The Wickerman (if tha...

Seems there was a lot hidden in this video - good job everybody! Sorry I haven't had chance to try and contribute to this.  On an unrelated note, I've got to say that teaser left me a little underwhelmed. For one of the first major bits of SW8 marketing, I felt there was a lot to be desired. I think...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

This maze theme definitely will be associated with SW8 - my question is will the maze's theme be darker and more intense than SW8's (as seen between The Sanctuary having a darker version of The Smiler's current theme) or will the ride theme be just as dark as the Scarefest maze (as we saw on the ori...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Who's to say there's necessarily a secret element? Indulge me for a moment, if you will. John Wardley (admittedly who is not working on this project) has always talked about rides where the unique selling point is just that it'll be a great ride. As far as I'm concerned Merlin could probably sell sl...
