Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If this is the case, I think it's a first for GCI. Maybe this also ties into the fact the layout was only designed to utilise 2 trains, but the park opted for 3.

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I absolutely loved this ride, and in my opinion it is the best ride in the park, and my number 3 coaster, after Shambhala and The Swarm.

Re: SW9

There are quite a lot of options for what SW9 could be. Apparently, even Alton haven't got a clue at this time. I look forward to seeing what it is, that's for sure.

It's also worth noting that IMAscore announced that they have made Wickerman's soundtrack in this tweet. What's everyone's thoughts?

It's hardly a surprise tbh.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

^You are correct:-

So therefore I predict tomorrow's video will be of Th13teen, and then Sunday's as the Smiler. And then I think Alton will make a video on Monday announcing SW8 in a similar format.
