Re: Project 2020

Wait, is it confirmed X is being rethemed? If so i am going to be so angry, X is an alright theme, there’s no need to change it to The Walking Dead! I hate The Walking Dead, if it were to be rethemed I would love it to go back to X:\ No Way Out.  Surely the new ride has got to be on Swarm Island. Wh...

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...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I hope the theming is incredible as I'm worried about the length of the ride, but knowing them, they'll have some sort of other gimmick to make it worth while, anyway I'm sure the Wicker Man will be definitely enough. Do you think they will add that 'fire' to the sound tunnels, because that would be...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Wow, a lot has happened. I think it is great to have another family coaster, as when I went as a child the only ride I could go on other than Twirling Toadstool and Ice Age (which i didnt want to go on at the time) was Spinball Whizzer, and I was bored waiting for my parents to get off rollercoaster...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I thought that x:/ no way out needs a refurbishment its so dull and hot inside i think a re design with loops make it faster and perhaps make the que better wat do u think? Well I would love to see this happen although I'd prefer them to concentrate on Project 2020, I just cant wait that long... Bu...

Re: Project 2020

Hi. First of all, when i said i thought it would be a racing coaster I meant to say I want it to be a racing coaster. I would love to have a hyper coaster, I just hope it doesnt use an IP but I have a bad feeling it will and as there is room at the back of The Swarm, it will have to be a small ride ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Face on the back of the head?! You're all wrong - it has to be Voldermort's face on the back of Prof. Quirrel's head!  HP finally coming to AT lol.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Fun! and also the name wickerman is basically confirmed as theme park world wide said that there is a secret message that sais wickerman in the welcoming. Thanks,  Ben. And as I noted as my signature alludes to, 4 T W C M syllables - The Wel-co-ming / The wi-cker- man, very subtly poetically clever...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Yes I have to agree, when the first symbols were revealed I was thinking that same. It can't be a coincidence either. Probably just a cool little Easter egg than anything with a meaning though! Let's have a forum challenge - link them to meaningful things, an out of season Easter egg hunt! Double c...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

This will never happen but i would love for the track before the drop to be longer, and what would be awesome is that if the backwards part of the ride had a corkscrew.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

So i do think it be be removed as ive said im sad about it but i do think gloomy wood will stay, because there is also a high chance it it being replaced, and i was thinking,(this probably wont happen) the flumes gone, only one major water ride left, so could there be a possibility of there bieng a ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I just did a bit of research on African tribal myths and legends. One legend stood out for me as it ties in with Katanga Canyon, as well as speculation concerning the SW8  construction . "The Zambezi River God, or Nyaminyami, is a dragon-like creature believed to command all life on the Zambez...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

What happened to the theory of the theme being a dragon who moves the earth and protects the river (river rapids)? That's the first I've heard of that theory :-k This may be a little wrong as i have bad memory (got hit by a car 2 months ago) but i remember when the black spikes where bieng made, th...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

Heres an idea if i could choose what to do with the ride. It would be called Alton Manor. I would replace it and go with a dark ride shooting game simalar to duel but with a twist... You do the classic haunted house shooting ride and then you reach what looks like the end station. The car keeps mov...
