Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

To be honest, I am a little late to this too. From the amount of buzz I have seen on this thread, it seems like waves of video game levels. Like, wave one is done and now we are preparing for wave two! Sorry for the cringey comparison but that's how I see at the moment! It will be interesting to see...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It's seems interesting they have gone for the likes of Elliot Crawford in this video, as his YouTube audience seem to be for young adults, maybye suggesting that's what Merlin want the target market to be, which might not the reassuring. I'm not sure though, he might be involved so that the ride sim...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The symbols look like they have been burnt in to the wood. Could this relate more with the rides possible involvement of fire?

Re: Silver Dollar City

In all honesty I'm not sure that I would personally be a fan of this. I like Spinball but inversions added would be too much for me. Looks like a unique investment though. They might do different trains styles like in previous Mack concept videos.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I have noticed the ride's state recently and the big issues I have seen is effects, lighting and completed scenery. These days the trommel barley works, the zombies sometimes don't work or come out too slowly, the screaming room lights are LEDs with gels, and when I mean competed scenery, for exampl...

I'm sure if the trims were turned off the outdoor section would be improved massively.

Re: How many visits per year?

I like to try and get 3 in a year. I would love to do more but 3 times is more than enough for the rest of my family! Unfortunately I think I am only able to go twice this year meaning I have no more trips planned to go there again this season! :(

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Maybe the architecture and design of the preshow building may give some clues? It may be a little early on to tell.

Is it possible to get film permits or something similar to be able to film on rides at Merlin parks? Because I have heard at places like Busch you can be directed to managers that can give you a special card that allows you to do so. Just wondering...

Re: Merlin's contract with Bose Audio ended, they've turned to Ohm Audio instead?

There still are 32se speakers on Towers Street on buildings and on Turnsiles, and the Ohm ones are on poles and painted green to be camouflaged. Maybye Bose weren't happy with Merlin taking off the logos. Also Bose seem to have more diversity with speakers with different shapes and sizes. Something ...

Re: Merlin's contract with Bose Audio ended, they've turned to Ohm Audio instead?

I do prefer the Bose range of speakers personally as they seem to produce better audio. Ohm is probably cheaper however we can see with Hex that Ohm speakers can't cope as well with high amplitudes for instance in the Cinema room. It seems Tussauds/Merlin have worked with Ohm in the far past with th...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

A horrific accident has occurred with what seems to be a KMG Afterburner at Ohio State Fair where a gondola fell from the ride while in operation. At least one pereson has died. Whether any action will be taken with Vortex will be interesting to see.
