You're all wrong, those are clearly the antennae of a giant ant. It's the Honey I Shrunk the Kids ride we've all been waiting for!

Re: Galactica

Sadly I agree as well. It's even worse that I had a big soft spot for Air, listening to the queue line music chokes me up a bit.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

If you look at it from Towers point of view the new scare zones are a much better use of money. They're cheaper, for one thing, and practically every guest that passes through that area encounters the attraction, as opposed to the old scare zones where the majority of guests will walk straight past....

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Speaking for myself, the cheaper options being unavailable just means I'm less likely to go at all.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I could see VR working for a game stand or something. Vive controllers, gotta shoot targets and dodge things for a high score, could have a screen showing bystanders what the player is seeing.

Re: Last Game You Played and Your Rating

Ah, great idea!

Factorio (PC) 10/10

Possibly the most addictive game I've ever played. Who knew logistics could be so fun, a game for tinkering late into the night.
Also the late 90s dark rpg art style appeals to me, as does the sombre atmosphere created by the music.

Re: Upcoming movie releases!

So.... after years of games trying to emulate movies and being worse for it, now movies will try to emulate games with probably the same result.

You could be onto something there, that little preshow bit done up to look like it's underground would fit in with the 'groundbreaking' bit people were speculating about

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Might get some proper official hints at a theme soon instead of speculation from planning applications and the like. Or we could just get some more misdirection... ;)

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

It should be reported on every time a media outlet invents a news story... But then that might make it seem like something unusual.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Yeah that path could just be for easy vehicle access to the site. I've heard wooden coasters need a lot of maintenance so maybe they're just planning ahead for that.

Re: Scarefest

Terror of the Towers finale was way too short last year, didn't have any of that disorienting panic cos it was just over way too quick and didn't have enough actors. Hope that at least is improved. The rest of the mazes were great.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Excellent Photos, Captain! Thanks to everyone posting pics for us people who can't get to the park.

It's great seeing this coaster slowly appear, and these pics really show the scale of the site. It's think it's going to easily be the best looking ride in the park.

Are there any new hoodie designs this year? They seemed to be clearing out stock last autumn.

Re: Galactica

They did such a good job with the portal putting on the goggles was a shame. More theming elements like that would be great. The flat riding position would give you a good view of it too.
