Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Really love the new trailer, and I really like the tone in which Alton is going for SW8 in, and even though I wished for it- they have actually (so far) gone down the AHS: Roanoke theme which I love!!

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

A Bad Mom's Christmas - 8.75/10 Ho! Ho! Ho! It's that time of year again already! Or maybe they've just released the main 'Christmas batch' early this year due to The Last Jedi being released - and most likely taking the percentage of the Box Office. But, back to Bad Moms! In my opinion, this movie ...

Re: Album's You've Heard and Your Review

reputation - Taylor Swift This is probably the most highly anticipated albums of the year, and in my opinion, it lives up to it! With this being Taylor's 6th studio album, it is definitely in a whole different league to her other albums. There are a few stand out songs, and also features a GREAT col...

Re: Fireworks

Has anybody found a daytime image of the current set-up for the fireworks lighting rig? As the pictures previously attached in the post a few above it isn’t very clear of the size of the rig. And judging from those pictures provided, a much smaller set-up to last year; however there are stil 3 days ...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Happy Death Day - 6/10 Erm, well firstly it's more of a comedy than horror... Only 1 jump scare, if that (and I'm VERY easily scared). A decent plot, but basically a Halloweeny remake of Groundhog Day. The characters were decent, and the humour used was actually very funny and made me more laugh tha...

Re: Scarefest

It's good to actually see this be used, I had a feeling it was but never actually saw it myself! interesting that you'd say a regular guest Dan, I'd have put money on it being a staff member. Having watched it again and paid more attention, it does appear to be a member of staff. Silly me :lol My i...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Even though this doesn't really blend in with the current discussion, regarding theming for SW8 we could maybe be seeing a Wickerman theme along the lines of AHS: Roanoke... As during that season of AHS, it does feature a lot of 'Village', 'Wickerman' and "Fire" themes within it, and could...

Re: Scarefest

Thanks for the advice How early would you recommend getting to a maze before your time slot? Also anything else I may want to prepare for? (Sorry for so many questions) Have you booked your mazes yet? If so, what time? Because that would affect the time I'd recommend you to arrive.  I believe I boo...

Re: Scarefest

On this coming Saturday, what sort of time would you say is best to get to Galactica to have a short queue time? Also the Runaway Mine train I'd say your best bet for Galactica would either be (as stated above) as soon as the park opens or at about 8.30pm, which is when I've seen it the quietest. T...

Even though I highly doubt any of you have it, I guess its worth a try... I'm looking for the new Big Top loop (that's not really muffled) and the Freak Show loop. Fingers crossed someones got them, as I noticed the Freak Show loop posted last year has been deleted, thanks in advance (if someone get...

Yesterday afternoon Oblivion & The Smiler were shut due to high winds... Girl running towards her mate "the smiler has just crashed again" Mate "I swear it crashes every week" (also, bare in mind the 'Weather' announcement was going off as well.  ](*,)

Despite not having a full day at scarefest, I am just leaving the park in the queue for the monorail as I type this... Managed to ride Th13teen, The Smiler, Oblivion and Nemesis... As well as that I did all 5 scare mazes as well as freak show, and to say the least, I am impressed with all of them!  ...

Re: Scarefest

On the subject of freak show being the only scare zone, I'm worried about the atmosphere of the back of the park. FB is going to feel dead I believe. with nothing really between GW and FB I think it might feel a bit empty and boring. With all the scares at the front of the park (Towers, mutiny bay,...
