That new puzzle was weird... At least they're getting more subtle and relying only on runes and curiosity.

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I think this move is the perfect opportunity to turn it into a really well themed attraction. I agree that X hasn't been the greatest and must say since it lost the "No Way Out" theme and aspect of the ride, it hasn't been the best when basing it on a rave. I think this could be a really ...

I'm so glad that this was restored! It looks so beautiful. I always find the little buildings within the gardens magical when I see them!

Re: X:\ No Way Out

You have to take into account that many people are respectful of X and find it perfect the way it is (with of course quite a few flaws but nothing as bad as a Walking dead retheme).  That may be the case, but is it really that wise to base an opinion on just hearing about it? Based on that logic th...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I mean it isn't shocking that this got a dark theme, I guess. It does kinda make sense for Thorpe to be catering to an older demographic as its special thing. I think the weird thing is that they gave such a childish ride a dark theme. If it was a new roller coaster or walk around attraction, I gues...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I do not agree with refurbishing X to the Walking Dead. I feel as if the points have been repeated a lot but it is so illogical. I feel as if they're taking away all the rides aimed at a younger audience, and, with logger's leap being closed frequently, I feel as if there's nothing to cater to the d...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I think they'll wait for the extreme marketing after the winners are announced, using the clues as hype bait until and then the stunts as hype bait after.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Also, I think they realised their mistake because on the Snapchat version there are no ruins. Also, is anyone else thrown off by the "Closing date for entries is midnight on 31st December 2017. No entries will be accepted after this time."? Does that mean the competition and all the clues ...

But it's also terrifying. Very very scary. One of the best episodes is season 3 episode 2, playtest. Any...

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

I would love to see either Sub Terra to be reopened or redone. It's such an interesting premise and for it to just go to waste feels just wrong. This has probably been said a hundred times but anyway. Forbidden Sweep should be replaced with a flat ride! Also, I think it would be awesome if they just...

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I have a feeling that it's going to end up going down the smiler route with a heavily themed area that extends to about 5 feet from the ride. I feel as if getting near it will announce its presence but I don't think we're going to see some grand theme change to the area around it. Maybe a slight pus...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

That's so incredible! I've been meaning to do something like that myself but never got around to it. So glad that you did! And I totally agree about the Beornen being similar to the ministry of joy. It's a really cool name but too hard to say for a ride (in my opinion) so it would make sense if it b...

Totally agree. That would be awesome!!! Much better than Wickerman if I’m honest.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

The new trailer is pretty awesome. I'm getting goosebumps!! Going back to what Jm55 said "they've developed their own language and belief system" really intrigues me. I wonder if we'll get a mythology or if it's just to back up the "technology is against our belief" thing they se...

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Animal Kingdom

Ah. That makes a lot of sense, but I also think it still makes profit, since before I don't think there was that much at animal kingdom, so now this convinces people to buy park hopper passes. And I know that's not as much money for Disney as a day ticket but at least it's something, no
