Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I just calculated the ride Height from highest point to lowest point of the ride by the way, On the ITV news report it said the 'theming structure' (The Wicker Man) is 6 stories high, Which is 18m.  From the photo below we know the top of the ride is 4m taller than the 'theming structure'.  https://...

Re: Project 2020

If it was to go behind The Swarm surely they would have to consider guest traffic, I mean I'd imagine in the summer it could get very busy having one small bridge(Swarm's entrance sign is) to get to two major rides, then surely they should construct a path/bridge that would go around/above/below Ste...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I don't believe this has been posted yet, But this is from Alton Towers' most recent blog post.  People often ask me how we run the best, most thrilling and exhilarating rollercoasters in the world while keeping our guests completely safe?  That’s the daily balancing act we face here at Alton Tower...

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...

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.

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.
