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...

Re: Movie Park Germany

Wow, that's pretty impressive! Surprised at how much detail they've put in, especially for a smaller park. That said, I feel like Helix will still remain the ultimate in Mack Mega coasters.

Re: Dark Forest Gertslauer?

I don't think there's any reason for a Dark Forest Gerstlauer - they have a perfectly good infinity coaster within two minutes walk, and there'd be no need for a Gerstlauer family coaster there as Th13teen would be too similar of an attraction. However I would like some new flat rides in the Dark Fo...

Re: Galactica

I believe this will probably be be an issue with the new headsets - Shaman at Gardaland is also yet to operate with VR this season (however Shaman is a brand new attraction and will be much more popular than Galactica). I agree it's getting beyond stupid now. I'm pleased Alton Towers are trying to r...

Re: TTSP@15 Event Feedback

Another awesome event and the best one yet (I know I say this every time)! Smiler is always a wonderful ride to have ERT on - and I must admit it was definitely running a fair bit smoother than usual! I got in 4 rides, which was a pretty good amount. Ride takeovers were just as fun as ever. The Blad...

Another question - does anyone have any idea if John Wardley will be around before or after the Q&A? I don't know about others, but if possible I'd like the chance to either get a photo with him or get my copy of "Creating My Own Nemesis" signed :P

Re: SW9

I'd like SW9 to be a launched wing coaster from B&M - all of Merlin's wing coaster installations so far look/are consistently great, and are just pure fun to ride. If Alton Towers were to get one I think combining elements Raptor (ground hugging layout), Thunderbird (launch) and The Swarm (just ...
