Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Hopefully they include John if he is willing to from the very beginning of any other projects! Agreed! It really is shame he wasn't asked a lot earlier, what a ride it would have been. But like he said it is still going to be a very fun and enjoyable coaster, which I am confident it will be. Great ...

Not yet and its probably unlikely one will appear but like you, i want to hope that a digital version will be available

Me too, I'm hoping that it gets released on their apple music page, along side existing albums of theirs.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I think enough time has passed now since the incident that people have moved, it would make sense to re apply the previous theming elements, they sure add that small bit of atmosphere to the area. I just hope that nobody makes a fuss of it if/when they return. "Nobody" being the press *Cou...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

@Robhand Hit the nail on the head there fella. Was thinking exactly the same thing with the flame effects. Think they will use these in the tunnels hopefully a sound system too.. Roaring flames effect?? They would look great, weather they use them in all of them or not is another question. Before e...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

While watching the video, it stuck out to me when mentioned “what appears to be a real fire, but is actually special effects”. I saw mentioned in a comment above that smoke and mist particles could be used inside the theming structure (where the rider enters) to give off a burning effect, but I can’...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Haven't Posted in a while, but have been watching the thread since it started, and It's amazing how much progress is being made for this SW in such little time. So much going on! I hope IMA Score end up doing the soundtrack for this ride (It does make sense for them not too), I fell in love with the...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I personally feel like, for how old the ride was, how much work would they possibly of had to do to it? It was a fairly new attraction. Of course the main part would be from cost cuts and the amount of people it took to operate the ride. I think TLC is a bit far fetched, but I could be completely wr...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know the best/cheapest way to get to the resort from stoke on Trent station as Im visiting next week. I have got a private taxi before at £15 each way but they have gone up to £20 now. Are their any companies that people know of that do the journey for a cheaper price? Thanks

Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

I assume this question has been asked 10 billion times, but what happened to nemesis' red/blood water? I used to love it when I was a kid and think it added to the "scary" element of the theming.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I swear I wasn't dreaming this, but very early on in the SW7 development, wasn't their like a competition going on at the time to be involved/create ideas (or something alone these lines), to be involved with making SW7? I'm almost 99.9% sure I remember seeing this on an external site from Alton Tow...

Re: SW8

Thirteen taught us it leads to disappointment. Disappointing to some, however Th13teen was the first of its kind and no one had seen a functional rollercoaster track free fall with the train operating at the same time. This element was kept secret during the entirety of its construction so it reall...

Re: SW8

Wasn't there very small teases as to what the logo would be very early on, like the smile stencil being sprayed all across the park. Or did they do that nearer to when they released the official ride name to the public? (I hope I'm making sense :lol ) EDIT: Just seen Justin's post, clarifying my poi...

Re: Towers Loving Care

This is more of a general question for my fellow TT members, but what areas of the resort do you think are in need of some serious TLC for the 2017 season, and what order do you prioritise them? (excluding rides that are already down under "TLC") It will be interesting to see different peo...
