Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Look at Kraken though. The fact that less than half of the trains are VR marks a change. Hopefully they will realise it’s not worth the VR and just scrap it.

Re: Project 2020

TBH I wouldn’t mind either a Hyper, Dive, LSM, RMC or large GCI. However it’s good if we’re getting a hyper in just 2 years, finally a lengthy good coaster that can compete with those in America. As long as their next coaster is Golden Ticket Award standard, I’ll be happy.

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Does anybody know why Oblivion is down for the second day in a row? Just curious as I’m visiting on Saturday and hope that it is open by then.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know if Nemesis could possibly be on 2 trains next Saturday?
Anyone have an idea as to what the crowds will be like on Saturday 7th? Thanks.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Re: Rush

Does anyone know what’s happening with Rush? We were told last year that it like slammer would be SBNO. We were then told it would return 2018 following a replacement part being fitted. We were given updates that it had been paired but now there’s no news on it. What is happening with this ride as i...

Is it more or is it shorter in length as there is only 5 folds whereas last years had 6.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

As it is the year of the Walking Dead, could we see X removed after the season to welcome a new coaster replacing both it and Slammer (RMC)? This would make sense as the Walking Dead could be used to bring in revenue and guest numbers whilst being removed before the IP dies out, people get uninteres...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Looks to carry some speed to it.
Hopefully we’ll see a POV issued by the park in the next couple of weeks. The advert will also be soon although it does feel surreal seeing the construction and realising opening day is 25 days tomorrow

Re: Dark ride ideas

I don’t think you could get away with that now - advertising to children they should follow strangers based on bribes?
A lot of remastering would be required

Re: Galactica - A worth while investment?

With Krakens future being questioned after half a season, should we question Galactica? Coasters are still getting VR however they are being improved so that it better works. Personally I feel Galactica is good but the VR is crap. Universally, VR is increasing queue times by dispatches and it clearl...

Re: SW9

Although one would absolutely love a Valhalla-Chiapas hybrid on the west side of Katanga, I can see it being a new roller coaster first then water. For Coasters, I can either see one of the following 3 being created: an RMC hybrid launch replacing Rita, a wing or hyper coaster in the Valley or a Tar...

Re: SW9

A rush style screamin’ swing could be feasible in the blades pit, but I do think that one of these, a gyro swing, a top scan and something unique would be good. If I were project manager I would think about in the next decade of developments: a Flying theatre in the staff car park behind Towers stre...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

I have just had a quick thought... At fright nights I waited 2 hours for this attraction although it was advertised and was disappointed with the throughput. With there being 60 people every 5 minuted going through that creates a 720 throughput per hour. Half of these were being fastracks halving th...

Re: Heide Park

Surely they could RMC it so it still retains and can be marketed as a new coaster
