Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Well, ECC are listed on GCI's website however I can't believe GCI or Merlin told them, They probably had someone on-site who heard it.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

^ What about all the other 2018 coasters, SW8 is the only one left which hasn't been announced as far as I'm aware. 

Also Merlin announced The Smiler, DBGT, Sub Terra(Well just a few hours earlier) and Gruffalo all in January of their opening years, I think SW8 will follow suit.

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I think there would have been better way to impliment The Walking Dead IP than retheming X, Such as retheming one of the flats and giving them some attention or retheme I'm a Celebrity. If you put a dark theme on a ride peoplecare going to expect high levels of adrenline, X isn't an adrenline filled...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Sorry for the double post, The link now works for me and the answer I've just submitted but here's a big clue, It where wood coasters (Well GCI's at least) begin as Southen Yellow Pine *blank* in Pennsylvania.

There's the Link to what TPC just mentioned,

Re: X:\ No Way Out

If they are putting a Walking Dead theme on this, then it's getting theming on the ride (Or VR), So I guess that is a plus and I guess all the party lights will be turned to white and red then.

Re: X:\ No Way Out

Noooo..... X was the one family coaster at Thorpe, And it's by far the tamest ride I've been on. Why are they retheming it, it literally just got a refurb in summer... Also when I rode X I loved it not because it had any force or anything, just because it was a cool rave with the New IMAScore soundt...

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

There's not been much talk about Forbidden Sweep's removal towards the end of this season, However the removal of the game is a bit of strange one, I think Towers might have found a true replacement for Ripsaw and want to close off Ripsaw/Forbidden Sweep's area for construction of a replacement. Or ...

Re: Legoland: The Great Lego Race VR Coaster (3 Parks)

Turns out the VR video will be Figment Productions but will be MackMedia in the sense of the other Mack VR coasters where the headset is given to the rider instead of the headset being attached to the train.

Interesting. I wonder how much longer Merlin's VR 'trend' will last.

Re: Galactica

The VR is decent, However it's not the best quality picture, The improvements were to the area were nice.  However the VR will soon become outdated and it, in my opinion, should be removed as there's nothing else in the country that compares with the experience of flying like that.  Personally, on a...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Why would they use this smaller Wicker Man for the advert? 

They use a company in Manchester to make the adverts I believe and the adverts are often CGI heavy, so I doubt it's for the advert.

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...
