Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I was there on the last day of the season and I walked through Haunted Hollow, I didn't notice any effects off.  I've also not heard any speculation about a Haunted Hollow retheme, But I quite like that idea to a more Pagan style walkthrough than a generic gothic horror theme. I mean regarding the a...

Re: Fireworks

The show was really good. I enjoying it lots of fireworks. My highlights included the bits with John Wardley and the debate about Black Hole and Corkscrew. Great end to the season!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

ITV news article on SW8
(Warning THAT incident is mentioned...)

It says Bradley Wayne is the 'creator' of SW8, much like John Wardley was(Just for marketing) with Th13teen and The Smiler.

And it confirmed a March 2018 opening, along with a few nice facts of the ride.

Re: SW8 General Discussion

This is the first time I've fully watched a ride construction actively in person for the past two years, since the beggining with the teaser back in Feb 2016 so it feels after strange that the ride might be revealed tomorrow...  :O There will not be a full reveal tomorrow.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

If you exclude all the marketing and the sancutary and look at just The Smiler as it is now, It's far from a doom and gloom 'dark theme' to be honest. I could see SW8 working with the pagan theme in the same way.  I wouldn’t say it’s a happy theme. It’s extremly sinister and is designed to make you...

Re: Scarefest

I noticed yesterday that Galactica and Nemesis are near identical to what they were last year, which is a good thing.  The Smiler looks a lot better this year in my opinion as it's more subtle and not blinding. Rita is bathed in green. Th13teen building is also green however the ride itself has no l...

So it looks like a smaller version of Maelstrom at Drayton Manor, A Splash Battle and a Flying theatre. Perfect fits for Winsor.

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Huh, That's odd, I wonder what caused Merlin's stock to fall, I mean The themes parks have been doing well, But I guess it's the midways that have a fallen atttendence this time. Could it be because of the increase of terrorist attacks?

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

So it seems the SW8 and Wickerman logo are being projected onto the Towers on the entrance for Hex. 

Facebook Video

Also I believe the runes say 'Feed the Flames' but I can't make out all the runes so I'm not 100% sure.
