I don't think these are easter eggs. I just believe these are nods to other rides at the park

That's what I meant. Tomato, Tomarto.  :lol 
It's still nice to see Sub Terra and The Flume are being acknowledged.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I've also noticed that The Flume's station tap also features in the video at 1:12 alongside a Sub Terra egg. 

EDIT: I've noticed this easter egg from The Smiler's construction as an easter egg in the video

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Hmm, this is weird, there are easter eggs everywhere, including a Sub Terra egg in the background. And underneath the Air poster there are a load of Runes with a new rune which looks like a fire... This is interesting... But could someone tell me who Eliot Crawford is, or is he another Miles Cedar.....

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Merlin Magic Making will most certainly be involved. I believe it is the Northern Studios working on the project.  I will have to see if I have a photo. Yeah, I saw in the top right hand corner that it said Northen Studios. Never knew until today MMM were split up into Northen and Southen.  I mean ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I don't have any photos  but  I spotted a trailer saying Merlin Magic Making in the old car park today, next to tent where wood is being cut. I didn't see the Merlin trailer this morning. But anyway we now have 4 compainies simutanously working on SW8. And as Lewis said, trackwork has begun all the ...

Re: Mutiny Bay Smokehouse

Does anyone think that this is to compliment SW8 next year, similar to that of RCR and Galactica, I mean I love how Towers expanding their F&B options, and Mutiny Bay was already the best F&B place in the park. However if this is going to be in the same area as SW8, SW8 not looking likely to...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

The documentary was a great watch, It really gives an insight for people like me who never got experience the original Haunted House!

This gives me hope for Duel's refurb!

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

Going with what Burniel said about Merlin only doing one large investment a year. This is not true as Merlin have made multiple large investments in one year, 2011 we saw Krake and Raptor and in 2013 we saw Zufari and The Smiler. I think Merlin would still treat SeaWorld/Busch Gardens with the same...

Re: LEGO Ninjago World - 2017

I got on Ninjago for the first time today and I actually enjoyed it much even though it was screens the effects made it feel realistic with the 3D. However I have a few minor complaints with it. Firstly for an attraction only a couple of months old, the queueline paint seems to be flaking off. Secon...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just looked up the Myaminyami on Wikipedia and I found something quite interesting... Heavy earth-moving equipment roared into the valley and tore out thousands of hundred-year-old trees to build roads and settlements to house the workers who poured into the area to build a  dam  that would harness ...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

With going with what has already been said, they could add some props in the finale sequence, I heard their was an alien animatronic in Sub Species which never worked and was removed from the maze in 2016, if Towers still have the animatronic, they could use it in the finale as a static figure but w...

And by Sub Terra you mean Sub Species, right?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I noticed this when watching TPWW's most recent blog, It seems like a tribal necklace to me.  A dragon would explain a lot though, It would also explain the horns on the wickerman from the planning application. A dragon would also explain the piping(could be for sewage though) that is supposedly for...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'd imagine it's a wood structure because they could say, much like Mystic Timbers, it is theming. I mean it would be weird having a large wooden wickerman then steel supports everywhere. I'm sure the reason behind it will be revealed in marketing for SW8 in time.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Also did anyone see the TS post yesterday, about the Rapids having old themed items added.. might just be reading into it too much but could have something to do with SW8..? You mean this? https://scontent.flhr2-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20229134_1546732175397221_7030652557759513991_n.jpg?oh=e329ec1...
