Re: do you get sick on theme park rides? you can help!

Although Nemesis only has 4 inversions, I often come of the ride feeling a bit dizzy. However, I can ride The Smiler, which has 14 inversions, several times before feeling dizzy. I sometimes take travel sickness pills for the long journey but I have noticed it means I can do rides for much longer be...

I am going in April and I feel so lucky to be able to ride how it should be.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

A week ago I was there today. And I did really enjoy the use of the smell pods.
Spoiler!
I will be interested to know whether the train in the live scene is working, or whether any other parts aren't!

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Went on DBGT for the first time yesterday and I was impressed with the risk Merlin took with it. The theming overall was pretty decent and I liked all the little touches that added detail to the ride and queue experience. However what I did notice was the large amounts of various graffiti in the que...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Maybe they could get around it with smoke machines and red glowing lights. But then during the day you wouldn't notice the lights, so maybe they will have to do their best with smoke!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

At first I thought this was official concept art leaked when I first saw it. It is so good! You should be very proud of what you have achieved. The perspective and scale is amazing. Hats off to you!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Sorry for the confusion, I meant personally as a whole I speculate it will be better and look better than the marmaliser as a theming element. However who knows until it is revealed! Looking back on my previous post, I see your point Owen!  8-[ ](*,)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

This honestly excites me up so much. Definitely more detailed than the Marmaliser!  If this is the kind of theming we are getting, this could be one of their best themed rides!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

As long as they don't mention anything about what  happens inside there, then a) if there is nothing, we won't be let down too much and b) if there is something there will be a nice surprise! :)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Unless GCI and Merlin are aiming for some laterals to give a sense of 'out-of-contolness'. But still, for the ride to be safe it can't be going too quick... :-k

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

They used to do Coaster Climbs for selected rides at Towers (including The Smiler), however it seemed after the incident they stopped this. I am not certain but that is how it appears to me. I haven't done one yet so I would love them to bring them back. This is probably for reasons that would benef...

Re: Saw - The Ride

With the shotgun, it seems that you hear the gun get loaded before firing, so that is your que for putting your hands over your ears! I'm also not a fan of loud noises either! :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Maybe the theming element is an action against us 'abusing natural resources'. It seems like a wacky enough theme for it to be something Merlin would use! :lol
