Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Just a few small pieces of theming like what's scattered around the River Rapids queue would be nice. I'd say if we were going to see a second major theming feature there'd be something there by now, but could be wrong.

What was the Smiler looking like during Scarefest 2012?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It looks like the Mad Hatter. Perhaps we're getting a more intense Blackpool Alice ride.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hey folks, considering doing Scarefest on the 31st this year. With it being Halloween, is that usually pretty busy or?

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

Remember the new Courtyard canopy will be in the same style as the existing one. There aren't many themes this style would match.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Giving most (but not all) of their "scary rides" scary themes would work fine IF they had enough children's rides with childish themes and family rides with a tone that lies in the middle. They are doing this - the bigger rides are getting the adult themes, small rides get the light themes...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I'd also like to say that this really makes me hope it'll be intense. Yet another ride that is clearly a family coaster with a dark death theme just won't do it for me

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I quite like this, although: 1) I was hoping for a slightly less sinister theme since the park (that's all about magic and happiness) has 5/6 main rides themed around misery and horror, and 2) I can tell already this is either going to be it's own random area or screw up the theme of a different one.

The group is angered by the "rapid advance of technology". Digital clock changes to old one, modern alphabet changes to runes... you may well be right...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

"Ground Breaking Development", "Globally Unique Experience" Sounds like they are trying really hard to say "World First" without actually saying it.  I'm alright with that though. I'd rather a really good ride with no records than something underwhelming with one recor...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It seems that they're actually showing us two things at once in this marketing. They're showing us the history of the SW line which is aimed at everyone, but also showing us the new Ride which clearly has a dark theme. That's why it seems a bit all over the place with who this is targeted at.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Hopefully we'll be able to get a picture, however, the marketing boards around SW8 have changed to reflect the branding introduced last week. More runes have also appeared. It appears that 'Be Chosen' is spelt out down each side of the new boards through runes carved into the wood, while SW8 appear...

Re: Mutiny Bay Smokehouse

Shame about the stage, it was a nice example of how Merlin should be with their theming efforts. Hopefully the improvements to the Ingestre building will also mean a bit of theming on the walls or something. I'm certainly glad they're giving the old building a bit of attention.

Re: Scarefest

I'd say this points towards the new maze being a link to SW8, like The Sanctuary was to SW7.
