Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

That is interesting to see... I remember at one point that the Flume station site was going to be a restaurant, but I haven't seen this yet. It seems unlikely that we will see another large theming structure built since all the other buildings and theming structure have already progressed so far. By...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Yeah, but could you still go to an attraction on any blackout date and pay for entry like other guests, despite owning an Annual Pass that this date would be unavailable? Basically, if I was to buy a new pass in the sale now, could I still go to Alton Towers Fireworks if I paid like other normal gue...

Re: Galactica

They actually made a small announcement about there being a  problem with a particular guest, but from where I was standing I couldn't see anything of a guest having problems with VR or anything. The long waits seemed to be happening every so often. Every few trains or so, there would be a long dela...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

So does that mean that if you were to buy the Annual Pass before the sale and before fireworks entry was excluded, you are still allowed in to the fireworks? Also, if you have an Annual Pass, does this stop you from paying for entry to attractions on any other blackout dates?

Re: Galactica

At the resort today and the loading procedures for Galactica were long and slow, possibly worse than last year... at one point the train was literally just parked in the station, fully loaded with guests ready to go but there was nothing happening apart from the staff skipping about everywhere, as i...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Now that you've pointed that out, it does seem obvious that they would already have the trademark sorted.

I guess... but if any happen to be found, it could give us a better idea of SW8's theme

Re: Walt Disney World - Epcot

If I'm honest, it's  about time for change at Epcot. In my eyes, Epcot is supposed to change and evolve. Unfortunately, due to the severe lack of investment there has been little, which I guess makes all these announcements of changes sound drastic. But change is good, change is needed!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I would buy th fastrack at the beginning of th day as soon as you enter and then, I would actually try and do both Oblivion (first) and Nemesis (second) during the early ride time, without using the fastracks. In fact you could easily do two rides on each in a row. I would do perhaps two rides on Ob...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

If Universal were to come on board with the project, wouldn't the current plans need to be modified significantly, and would then mean the opening would be pushed back further...? As for a Harry Potter land, I would imagine that if Universal were to open any park in the UK, a Potter land would proba...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Ok, I'm going to try my best here... When you arrive at your hotel, I would ask about what local taxi firms there are so that you know what there is to choose from. I'm sure they will be able to give any details like phone numbers etc. or even help you book your taxi. You mentioned about early entry...
