Might have been near it, I'd rather a coaster then a restaurant anyway :-)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I reckon they're secretly working on some when better scenery in theming envelope 1, so they're subverting everyone's attention. Dom you could be on to something.

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

The Dark Tower - 8/10 I'd honestly never seen any advertising about this film, but from the cinema trailer, it looked quite interesting. The plot can be a bit hard to file at times but it's a good little film. It's got a great cast with some people I'm told I'm meant to recognise, but i don't. If it...

Re: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi

Is there not already an aquarium in Abu Dhabi? The SeaWorld name will get them some visitors, but rides would get them even more. I thought they were good at this sort of thing! On another note, IKEA Sheffield is opening soon :D :D so IKEA Abu Dhabi is a bit off my radar!

Re: Warwick Castle Discussion

I remember they removed the seance a few years ago because it was getting unpopular. It was definitely not there last year anyway, and it was a bit naff when they did have it. Dolls House is interesting though, any descriptions?

Re: Best/Worst places to eat in Alton Towers?

I've always thought the best FB stands were in Mutiny Bay, and I've always enjoyed my food whenever I've got it in mutiny bay. My favourite overall restaurants are the Rollercoaster Restaurant, Emporer's Bar and Grill, and the Woodcutters. My worst are Fried Chicken Co, Burger Kitchen (CCL) and (Unp...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

The only rides I could think that would fit are already in cbeebies land. It's a good idea for the park but as Mandyland is home to the only Wallace and Gromit ride it is unlikely that the IP is up for sale at the moment. Also, the resort already has a children's land themed to an IP, so I'd rather ...

Re: Elo Coaster Ranking Project

Very interesting! As much as I wish I could add mine, it falls just one coaster behind the required limit, however, it is entirely possible for me to go to a new park before the end of the year, so I just have a few questions. 1. Do bobsleds count? (Avalanche @ BPB etc.) 2. Vekoma Junior Boomerang. ...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I'm doubting that they'll remind the house of monsters theming, as it seemed to be very popular and well built. August is the main time when families come to the resort so dismantling the play area at that time seems like a bad investment in my opinion. Also, wobble world always seemed to be unenjoy...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Towers have also been doing a lot of work with Nick, with Mutiny Bay, Many Scarefest Soundtracks and (I think) Christmas. All I know is, we'll be getting some great audio, from a great composer, be it IMAScore or Nick Hutson, to go along with a great ride experience, a great theme and some great mer...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I've no idea as to why they don't use printed concrete. It's becoming more popular in driveways and the like. Surely it'd be much easier than laying them ugly bricks. I'm not exactly sure why you think that the pathways are ugly, but I'm quite happy they didn't, but that's my personal opinion. It's...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I'm really starting to believe that SW8 is doing to be themed to being stuck in a different time, "the group" has somehow made its way into ATR from the past, so I'm wondering if we could go back to their's in the same way. It's certainly a possibility.

Re: Scarefest

Well, it certainly looks like the pagan ritual has been confirmed! I think the only reason the group have allowed the public in is to sacrifice then to their gods.
