Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

Gimme a new attraction for 2019 please. Can we just replace Rumba Rapids already! I hate that ride, even more than Nemesis Inferno. It just lacks excitement for me, which in some cases is good, but you barely get wet. Mabye just add some cannons or a water fall, maybe change the theming and the old ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Alton Towers have today put out a casting call for “actors and performers” for the upcoming Alton Towers Dungeon, which is set to open in 2019. https://i.imgur.com/xS0caTJ.jpg Source: @alton_towers_entertainments on Instagram. So this is going to be about Alton Towers history? Couple of complaints,...

Re: The Future of Oblivion

In my opinion the whole back of the X Sector needs a bit of TLC, it's looking a bit grey ever since Submission left  :cry:. I know its supposed to be retro but couldn't it be updated with more soundracks and more just emphesize that its retro, Oblivion being one of my favourites, I just think more p...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

I have recently participated in an engineering Jack Petchy run challenge sponsored by Thorpe Park. I haven't won but whoever wins the finals will help Merlin Magic Making theme the new attraction near Old Town, or in it, possibly on the Logger’s Leap site. Don't wanna sound like a downer, but have ...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Just gonna put it out there, I think nearly every area should have a flat ride, DF, CCL (which really needs attention or a re-theme) GW, and one to replace Ripsaw in FV.

It’s very unlikely, but I’d love more to be added to Towers Street!

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

I think that Gloomy Wood should have a horror water ride. The horror element could make it really scary. It will bring some thrill seekers missing Nemesis Sub-Terra which at the rate it is going will probably never reopen. It could be indoor or outdoor. Sorry, I just had to say, after the demolitio...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

Guys - I think you're all gonna be a bit surprised by this when it opens. I was part of the event with Jordan and there are some really fun elements to this ride, before, during and after the main ride experience. And it's not just a quick retheme and a splash of gloomy paint - the attraction tells...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

But are you still allowed on it if you’re under 13? I get these things confused. I can go on it, but I have the mental age of a 5 year old so is that a suggestion or is it a rule?

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

C'mon guys, is there nothing left to speculate? Lets talk! The only thing i have as a conversation starter is, it would be cool ift he zombies scared you in the unload bay or chase you out of the exit, that might be possible due to the bottom left of this picture  https://www.instagram.com/p/BfbN1VE...

Do you think anything big will be in the shed? I hope so, it will make the ride way better. The shed could look like its on fire! That would be cool what do you think? (Wait a minute i saw a video which revealed, that infact nothing is in the shed, you go into a dark room, then come back to the ...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

I think I might have changed my mind about this. I thought it would be boring and have a lack of theming, but now I've seen those photos, I think the ride will be good as long as the theming is just as good through out the whole ride. The last picture got me thinking, in the unload bay could a zombi...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

Is this really happening? It’s a shame, it will be a boring coaster, the name obviously should have The Walking Dead: The Ride as it is long and repetitive with two 'the's' and the syllables dont match. I also agree that it’s a shame it wont be one of the only rave/light hearted/disco themed coaster...

Re: Project 2020

If they were to use an IP, I think they would use The Walking Dead, as they have the licence for the mazes and there was speculation on a ride being themed to it. I highly doubt they will give Project 2020 an IP, but if they do, I hope it isn’t The Walking Dead as I hate it. On another note, do you ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

There is still a major issue, having to look behind you to see the wicker man on fire. Does anyone have any thoughts? You enter the structure three times I believe, twice from one side and once from the other, the fact it has the ram's head and wicker man means it will I assume be set up for all of...
