Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I would have thought that such a big group as ECC would have had some inside knowledge either from Merlin or GCI themselves.

Gosh does anyone think the Big Dipper needs a coat of paint because it looks very old and rotting compared to Icon and even Infusion!

Re: X:\ No Way Out

Hopefully it will be a themed corridor that just builds to the anticipation before boarding. I am not sure about the dark theme of this ride however on the whole I am looking forward to the project. Will it be better than Air's retheme however?

Re: Last ride you have been on

Shockwave at dusk. It wasn't too bad of a ride I must say, but there is one awful kink similar to the one on The Smiler's however this one is just before you go up the loop.

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Robert, I really hope this is their strategy too. Surely they cannot be adding more hotels without keeping the Theme Parks in proportion to them?

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

I also love the drop on Oblivion and I find the pop of airtime before hitting the brakes very satisfying!  Its joint second with Nemesis in terms of Big Six rankings in my opinion. Having said that, it is the roughest B&M coaster I have done. It isn't terribly rough but there is a fair share of ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

In a nutshell, I think it is a fantastic ride! However, unless it has major TLC work, it will never ever have the same 'vibe', atmosphere and freshness as 2013.

Does anyone know the throughput of this ride? If there isn't an official figure, what would be the estimated throughput?
