Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Isn't DBGT's budget still from MMM since it's only in it's 3rd year?  And also it seems strange bringing back an attraction from seasonal operations after 5+ years of being scrapped, It gives me a bit of hope for Sub Terra. I think the budget cuts are actually pretty sensible since it's attractions ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I also knew about this rumour and now I know it's true I'm very annoyed.  One thing that is bound to happen with these cutbacks is when the park gets busy at Fireworks, Scarefest and Summer Holidays/School Trip season the queues for rides are going to be even worse than they already were. Also it's ...

I actually don't want to see a POV, It will spoil any suprise the coaster might have.

What, So there's a Eurofighter that's never been used just sitting there idle? 

If that went up for sale I'd imagine it going quite quickly.

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

I'd imagine the ORP's for Wicker Man will be available in the shop itself as I can't just see all of that area just filled to the rim with merchandise! 

On the subject of the shop I hope it is like DBGT's current shop because that's awesome.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

From the same blog post lewis97 posted Alton Towers have confirmed real fire effects will be used on the Wicker Man.  The  Wicker Man  rollercoaster experience will see the chosen ones lured in by the Beornen, and invited to climb on-board the Beornen’s train passing further into their secretive wor...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I mentioned it on TowersStreet, But I haven't mentioned it here so I'll echo what I said there.

I'd think it'll be amazing if we saw some sort of Fake Fire effects under the track at certain parts in the ride to give the illusion of the ride itself being on fire.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

I think now that MB courtyard and Wicker Man will just form it's own section of the park as a sub-area to Mutiny Bay.  I think it'll be called something like 'The Woods' or 'Alton Village' or maybe even try and combine it with Gloomy Wood to form 'Alton Woods' but with The Tudor style half of Haunte...

Re: SW9

Towers design the SW's to improve on the previous one, Oblivion went for the 'World's First' to top Nemesis. Air aced as a contrast to the intense pevious two coasters. Th13teen was all about bringing back a major coaster to Towers and The Smiler was about adding a proper thrill ride after Th13teen'...

I love the poster for SW8, However the 'World's First Rollercoaster experience fusing fire and wood' is absolutely hilarious.

Re: Heide Park

So is George's Dino Adventure by S&S Steeplechase? I wouldn't have thought that Merlin would have brought them for any of their park, But I guess they have done. 

Also is it a credit?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Is Ben and Jerry's supposed to still be there? I kind of assumed it'd be demolished but it's still looking pretty untouched? The Ben & Jerry's stand was the only building that survived demolishion, I think it'll open as a Nitrogenie when the new season starts though, Because I don't see Towers ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Can I just change the discussion for a sec and say something, For a world where most theme park attractions get built in factories and theming just printing of a machine, It's been kinda cool to have a ride which 95% of t has been built on-site, The theming and the ride itself being built on site by...

^ If you look at all of Alton Towers Facebook posts their often posted at 20:00. And the other social media just post whenever they feel like it.  If they want the media to write about on 8-1-18 they'll post it earlier, or have a media presentation earlier so people can find out that day. 8pm is a s...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Wait wasn't DBGT marketed as a 'World's First', I don't think they specified what it was that was 'World's First' either. Or maybe one of the elements of the ride or the theming structure has something to do with 'World's First'. I don't think it'll be something to do twith ride hardware with how tr...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

InvadR is 2ft higher than SW8 and InvadR has a flat turn of the lift hill and reaches 48mph whereas SW8's turn is banked(Probably John Wardley's change) like Galactica or Nemesis allowing it to gain more speed.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

From the (legal) pictures we've seen, People have said something about a Ram head behind the main head, Of course I see the horns but I can't see a face, Is that just me or does anyone else not see it?
