Re: Legoland Windsor - The Future

So it looks like a smaller version of Maelstrom at Drayton Manor, A Splash Battle and a Flying theatre. Perfect fits for Winsor.

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Huh, That's odd, I wonder what caused Merlin's stock to fall, I mean The themes parks have been doing well, But I guess it's the midways that have a fallen atttendence this time. Could it be because of the increase of terrorist attacks?

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

So it seems the SW8 and Wickerman logo are being projected onto the Towers on the entrance for Hex. 

Facebook Video

Also I believe the runes say 'Feed the Flames' but I can't make out all the runes so I'm not 100% sure.

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

I was aware of the new name since the Paramount name was dropped, but I wasn't aware about the logo, Sorry.  :roll: I'm extremely sceptical that this project will go ahead though and the occasional bit of news suprises me that there are people working on this project everyday. Doesn't mean I don't w...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I'd like to see Spinball removed and replaced with a Cbeebies Land expansion, And with that sized land they could fit a Cbeebies dark ride and/or a Cbeebies water ride or even another show venue.  Cbeebies Land is a very nice area of Alton Towers and I could see a big expansion either 2019 or 2020 a...

Re: Dragon Falls Tiger Retheme - 2018

Strange how it was anounceed today, I mean most Merlin additions are announceed in January of their opening year, I guess ghis addition is fairly small when compared to other additions across the Merlin theme park (Non Cbeebies). This addition does looks promising though! Nice to see Dragon Falls is...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

The KC to MB pathway hasn't been altered all season, It's just been closed as it's sandwiched between the SW8 offices and the construction site. I've seen workers use the path all season whilst on the rapids as well, so it certainly hasn't changed.

Re: Do you get sick on theme park rides? You can help!

I did Maurders(I can't pronounce or say that) Mayhem for the first time expecting to come off dizzy and I was fine however later went on Storm in a Teacup, I came off with a headache. I generally try avoiding Spinning coasters as I get motion sickness when spinning a lot but I'm fine with VR that ha...

Re: Scarefest

random question, but for anyone who did Sub Species in the previous years...what was the hidden ending, and how was it compared to the normal one? (I'm not sure what the normal one is either, I'm a bit far from AT but I'm curious about the mazes). I've been wondering this for ages, thanks! I believ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I've heard a lot of people talk about a possible Mutiny Bay retheme to 'The Village' or 'Alton Village', I mean it seems plausible as MB would have the same lifespan Ug Land had before it's retheme into Dark Forest. I'd imagine a retheme wouldn't be too hard as MB still retains a lot of it's Merrie ...
