Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

I really do hope the One Tree Path does remain open... it is a good shortcut and especially useful if you have people of different ages in your family so can get to different park areas much quicker. :)

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

I've head on other forums that the tunnels will have smoke effects, so that's something at least! The wood fencing around the ride should get a bit darker in time as it is exposed to the weather, so will match the rest of the ride hopefully at some point.

By the way, welcome to the forum! :)

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Yeah, the queue does look a bit on the short side compared to some of the others. It might be that some of the queue goes into the trees perhaps. :)

Isn't that the station and the maintenance area the bigger building behind / next to the station?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I agree, I'm quite curious as to why they keep showing the spinning thing... there must be something to it for them to keep showing us it... also, at the very end of the video, there is what appears to be a close up of the ram head on one of the ride trains. :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I too am really impressed with what we have seen lately. The quality of the theming looks really good, the effects look fantastic in both light and dark environments, and the ride looks much faster than I expected it would! Can't wait to ride it! :)

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

We are thinking of visiting in March - any ideas when the Rock N Rollercoaster re-theme will begin? MOL Rock 'n' Roller Coaster will be open all March, so don't worry about missing out on it before it closes! The ride is due to close for a few days in May, but I'm not sure that would be long enough...

Is the scaffolding mounted onto the car in that image for filming purposes? i.e. Will cameras be fixed to the scaffolding?

According to members of other forums, Towers have been filming the advents over the past few days, and that the metal bars are indeed for mounting the cameras on. :)

Not sure of the source, the person who posted it on another forum didn't give one... it looks as if it's been leaked though. :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'd imagine that level of fog would make catching the on ride photos a bit difficult, as well as possible safety issues with the lack of visibility.  During the day the lights and fog probably wouldn't be as effective as they are during dusk, so not having those effects isn't really much of a loss. ...

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

The opening of this latest expansion will certainly bring some much needed attractions to the park. And yeah, using Slinky for the coaster train is a very innovative way to incorporate that character! :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Wicker Man is looking brilliant! Even if the fog is just there for the promotional pictures, the fire effects are very impressive, and I'm sure it will look really good in the daytime as well! :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I understand perfectly well that factors that can influence the speed of the coaster during the testing stages, but not everyone who did see the video will. My point was that anyone who had seen the video and was disappointed by what's it showed, because they didn't understand the possible reasons o...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

You speak as if this “interest” can’t be relatively easily piqued again with the revelation of some exciting photos/video and a release or two to the national press :P No, that's not what I'm saying, I'm just saying that at the moment , there doesn't seem like there is much interest in the project,...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I think it's quite clear that as things stand, this ride isn't delayed... I'm just worried that with such a large gap in their marketing, apart from the release of their overpriced Photography Box, it's a bit easy to loose interest in the project.  It dosen't help, I don't think, that the last we re...
