And Bert, pagodas aren't just in China. The architecture is seen across the majority of Eastern Asia so I wouldn't be so quick to put them down on that one.

Whoops! I don't know a lot about architecture so I just assumed that they are Chinese (because of the one at Towers is Chinese).

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I've seen somewhere it will have rockwork (similar to Helix/blue fire?) , and things to fit the Chinese theme, as on the posters. I'm pretty sure someone said something about pagodas as well which could be pretty cool if true. The theme is Japanese not Chinese so don't expect any Pagodas but expect...

They are a theming company who have worked on projects with Merlin in the past, One of the most notable examples being I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here:The Maze at Thorpe. They've also worked with Europa Park, Disney and Universal.

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

Erm, what to say without being biased? Positive: It's good to see that they are expanding they're thrill attractions. This will probably be advertised as one of Thorpe's major coasters again. This has the potential to be successful as SAW:The Ride. Negatives:  It's sad to see a family attraction lea...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

On the subject of Millennium Flyers, What are they like to ride on compared to something like Th13teen or RMT or even Octonauts. I've heard they're like sitting on a sofa whilst on a coaster. Is this true? Also I've heard MF trains can staple you and if so how bad because I got stapled on Galactica ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I personally love the trains, the level of detail and theming looks excellent and, in my opinion, they’re the best themed trains on the park right now. Well you obviously forgot about the Octonauts train then...  https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/20150321_img_1388_hursty.jpg

Re: Six Flags Dubai

Thanks for the update. All they needed was one outstanding ride to be a world-class theme park and they seem to have cut that.. Mack Hypers are obviously great - but makes no sense as it will be the same ride type as Velociraptor just down the road.. Think of the difference between Blue Fire and DC...

Re: Land of the Tiger - 2018

The new station looks great, This was my only concern when In heard Dragon Falls was getting rethemed. 

It's a worthy replacement, I hope Chessington keep up this level of theming seen on The Gruffalo and Tiger Rock!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Where? Can I have a clue? Or is it sarcasm? If you look at the ORP camera, It looks all rusty and out of date, Which is character development for The Beornen, Which shows that they are are a bit out of touch with modern society. The detail is so subtle but I love it! Also in that photo we can see t...

Re: Towers Loving Care

In my opinion, Even Tomb Blaster was better than Duel in it's 2017 state. So I'm hoping the Duel refurb will make the ride better than Tomb Blaster though!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Apperently the intial teaser for YotWD had binary code on it and at the bottom had the numbers '053018' which could be hinting at a 5th of March announcement for the headline attraction, The X retheme.

I've been thinking about Project 2020 and wondered if they will utilise an IP for Project 2020 and if so what IP will they use(Assuming they are going for the teen market) maybe we'll see another SAW like situation with a ride themed to another horror based IP. But what IP's would they go for? It? A...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

All of Towers new additions since 2012 have had themed uniforms for each attraction, So I don't see why they won't have a themed uniform for what if supposedly their most elaborately themed attraction in a long time at the park.
