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. :)

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

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...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

With Alton leaving it so long since they last revealed anything about the ride, they seriously are risking people losing interest... If they genuinely don't have anything to show us at the moment, they could have released some footage from earlier stages in the development of the ride that would at ...

The lack of Annual Pass discount may also put people off. Despite that, I do think it will sell out, rather quickly too.

Yeah, as of right now, there are only 235 left in stock, so the price hasn't put some die hard fans off of buying it! :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I hope they have some sort of incenses in the shop that make it smell wood like. I feel like that could be awesome, and we have been seeing a use of incenses in Thorpe. It would help bring the shop to life in all senses. That would be a really awesome effect to have! It would definitely help them c...

Re: Towers Loving Care

Yay! Duel TLC looks like it's coming along really well! Whilst I liked the old soundtrack, it's not one that I'm sentimental about, so it will still be nice to see a change! :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The Arctic Explorer rooms do indeed look very nice, but I'd have liked them to have more of a variety of rooms using the "explorer" theme. What if they were to add "Jungle Explorer" rooms or "Desert Explorer" rooms for example. I think that would have given them more va...
