Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

When I first heard about duel alive I found it hard to believe it was even allowed! Yeah its pretty incredible actually I assume thats why they never did it again because it was a health and safety headache. I cannot wait for a refurbed duel, I've accepted that they'll keep the guns but considering...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I really like that approach though I appreciate something special at the end of the day a great coaster will hold strong for years while a worlds first element or surprise may not last

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Well its certainly pagan as the runes seem to be a mixture of Irish ogham writing and Scottish pictish writing so I dont see us getting meaning out of them. It may not be monster it could still be a tree as the tree holds a lot of symbolism in paganism

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

They did say its getting TLC this closed season. I'm hoping for a revamp and removal of the guns but they'll most likely touch it up like Hex( which was done really well)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Saw this on Reddit this morning and rushed here, so its defiantly pagan themeing which is great and we'll be getting some scarefest experiance for it, so I wonder what that is. Also be chosen is similar to join us or don't go alone from the smiler and thirteen which is interesting

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I know its a long way off but I'm so excited for the trains to arrive and for us to see some queue line progress. The coaster is also looking great

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

The same person who did sub terra and the ghost train is doing the themeing for sw8 so maybe we'll see NST and Duel both refurbished because Duel really needs it

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Themeing is coming back now I think Merlin and other parks have realised how much it changes a ride. I'm excited to what queue like themeing this ride will have. I'd agree smiler has alot of themeing as the queue line fits its theme but themed ride is thirteen or hex at the current moment

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I really really enjoy this, I think honestly it could be the bodie setting that being said the fins on the themeing do look animalistic and they're certainly covering it because it'll give away what the themeing is. I think its definitely in katanga however but I do entertain the idea that it may be...

I'm going to call this now and say that this tlc year will focus on gloomy wood and sub terra and as such they'll be working on reworking animatronics and effects

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I doubt that it will be the gruffulo, it will be a new IP as they know a branded ride such as this would not go down well

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Dunkirk 9/10 Where to start, the less I say the better. This movie combines my love of history and film to one brilliant film. It is beautifully shot, incredibly well acted and scored,edited exactly how a Nolan film should be and historically accurate to a tee. The film was more suspenseful and stre...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

They may have to just patch things up a bit that wore down or speakers that don't work, mainly I think they'll just make additions to cut down on the staff needed

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I think it may be like the mine train(or thirteen) in the way that you're not going that quick but theres a lot of near miss element's that make it seem quicker.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm all always blown away by the pace they're moving at now and its just getting more excited. I'm really liking the look of that hill. This excitement has me arranging a trip to my local woodie and tayto park (as well as the new flume)
