Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Hi all, I have been a observer for a number of years and have finally joined up to join the conversation. I saw a really good video on YouTube that someone put together a creation of their take on how the Wickerman will run. The part I found really good was their take on what will happen at the end...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

http://i.imgur.com/HZpprTg.png Another reply off of the Towers Team? Do you think this confirms that the new ride will be based off of the most recent Wickerman film? Or do you think this means nothing? SW8 Nicholas Cage themed. It'll take you through all of his best roles, eventually leading to a ...

Just posting a construction update, that's what we can see out of the top of the scaffolding.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

No pictures because my phone died, but I honestly assure you that protruding from the top of the scaffolding is a brown bristly back/top of head, and two horns.

Google "gruffalo". Exactly those horns and back.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I dont see how people could think its gonna be in Gloomy Wood, the entrance is in Mutiny Bay (Katanga Canyon at a push) and Gloomy Wood is still a good 5-10 minute walk away when using the old pathway past the rapids. In my opinion, the ride will be in its own sub land bridging Katanga and Mutiny. ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Hate to disappoint people, but I went to the park today and there's 100% a gruffalo under that big tent/tarp thing.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just a thought, What if as you went through The Wickerman's legs, you got sprayed with water... [emoji38] I can actually see Merlin doing that. Looks at torture scene in The Dungeons... Sw8 - world's first rollercoaster to feature getting urinated on by an inanimate object.... I mean it's a world's...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

My guess is there will be lifts involved in the pre show. It would be interesting if there was a big wickerman themed pre-show to hide a lift, á la transformers: the ride. Perhaps a scene showing the wickerman coming alive, picking up the ride vehicle and throwing it, with the ride being launched a...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Hi, long time lurker and coaster fan, and now a member of the forum I suppose.
I'm from Staffordshire, so have an active interest in the goings on of Alton Towers, although I also follow other theme parks across the world for exciting new rides.

See you on the rest of the forum!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Finally bothered to make an account here after years of lurking, just because the breaking/falling element seems entirely possible, if not likely, but maybe not in the sense we'd think. Mystic Timbers (also GCI) opened recently and features a large room at the end filled with underwhelming screens (...
