Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

If the ride theme itself is about paganism and reconnecting with the natural world it may not be as dark a theme as some people were fearing. Not a fear I really share since I love dark themes but I can understand people taking issue with every new ride having a sinister theme.

Re: Scarefest

Some of those actors were really going for it. So sad I'm not going this year, hoping they bring The Welcoming back next year in some form in a different location.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I assume a fire effect would be away from the track on the statue itself which could be metal finished to look like wood.

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

For me the VR is the weakest part of Galactica and DBG so to see it shoe horned into another ride would be a big waste of money. You'd still need actors to get people into the ride and seated, but with the added time for them to walk around and check everyone has their head set on correctly. Also I ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

They won't base a ride off a film that's a decade old and is only remembered for being hilariously bad. I'm interested to see if the ride will be connected with druids or something different.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I imagine most of the public who don't spend their time looking at meme-y things on the internet forgot about that film ages ago, or will think of the 70s version instead. As a side note, I've heard that the only recorded tales of the burning of a wicker man as a form of human sacrifice came from ro...

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.

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.
