Re: The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare Extreme

Wish I knew about this earlier in the year. I don't watch Walking Dead so a retheme of X didn't interest me, but a horror maze crammed with actors that's open all day and free sounds amazing!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

One thing I want to point out about Wicker Man is how effective the head choppers through the structure itself are. I'm usually not susceptible to them, but something about these actually made my brain go 'Woah, watch out!' and automatically pulled my hands down. It really feels like your going so c...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

If true that's great news! Wonder if they've fixed the dead screen on the Marmaliser.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

On my last trip we went on 7 rides, Duel and Hex both had short queues and were operating fine but every one of the 5 coasters stopped at least once while we were queuing. You shouldn't hear a 'technical issues' announcement in every single queue. Hopefully if they get enough complaints the accounta...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Rode The Wickerman at about half 7 on Saturday after queuing from 4.15. Kudos to the staff for working late. After queuing for so long, having never ridden a wooden coaster before and getting to ride it in the dark it was possibly the greatest experience I've ever had on a ride. Really looking forwa...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The station, after ride corridor and shop are fine, but the pre station queue needs serious work. Screens are off, music is too quiet and the projection room is too light, it utterly destroys the atmosphere of the ride.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

What do we think the chances are of SW8 being open at the start of next season then? Construction of the track seems well along but I'd bet there's a lot of work and tons of testing still to do. I'd love to go to the park on the day it opens but being so far away and having to book a hotel in advanc...

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...

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.
