Re: GET TO THE PARK & MORE, HELP :)

If you're thinking about renting a car, I trust enterprise or europcar. it's best to book in advance though so you know they've got a car there for you. Other must do's at the park (as well as the big six) Congo River Rapids, Hex, Duel, Spinball Whizzer and if you have time, Sharkbait reef is amazin...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I think that'll be what the GP think that'll be, but Merlin have devised a while backstory to build a theme onto. Then again, I may just be too hopeful with towers on this one.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

So far, we know 7 different runes. Could this be something to be displayed on the TVs in Mutiny Bay? Like a decipher the runes challenge?

Re: Mutiny Bay Smokehouse

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! I loved that show! Could they do a similar show inside the building? The park feels a bit empty, and I miss all of the entertainment it used to have ( outside of cbeebies land).

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Working on the Minotaur theme, it looks like the theming structure could be based on the Pagan theme of  Moloch although the ancient pagan god seems to be based on the sacrifice of children, although Alton may twist the theme and play on the sacrifice of riders in general, or that we are indeed all...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

They'll definitely be wanting to do a bit to it, with it appearing to be in the same area as SW8. Towers have been known to retheme or revamp the story of rides surrounding the new ones (Dark Forest, X Sector) and won't be wanting a badly rundown ride right next to their new coaster. I believe we co...

Has anyone mentioned the episodes (1,2 and 3) that appear on the SW8 webpage?
Episode 1 is the YT video of Francis but 2 and 3 appear as just titles with no video links as of now.
?


Episode 1 is the video explaining what the SW program is.

Re: Fright Nights

Thorpe are running a promotion for FRIGHT NIGHTS alongside Andy Muschetti's upcoming IT where if you buy a ticket in advance to see the movie you will also receive a 2 for 1 voucher for FRIGHT NIGHTS! One would hope this would hint toward a new partnership between Thorpe and New Line but I doubt it...

Emoji Movie - 4/10

Just awfully done (except the animation). Also really despised some of the product placement and feminism lines, as well as plot points which didn't make any sense. The ending and comedy throughout is so bad. Such an awful film!


Yet you give or a 4/10.

Ooooo! With Cedar Fair behind it, I predict better theming than SFFT's new ride, however not as much as a Busch Gardens or Alton Towers attraction. That RockWork looks cool though!
