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 r...

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

The Haunted Hollows could easily be rethemed with a similar style to what is currently seen in 'The Welcoming'. Then what will happen to Katanga Canyon? Nothing. It will remain the same. I think the haunted hollows rethemed is most likely if anything as it runs alongside the area of the coaster and...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Concerning what 8byfire wrote, (I didn't want to quote it because it is so long!) I think that's a brilliant idea, and would love it if that's what merlin have thought up of. Merlin are probably trying to appeal to everyone for this coaster so by having what you said it would fit in. I think it is ...

Re: Scarefest

If buying tickets at the door (I have a 2 for 1) How early would you recommend getting to the park? early enough that you'll be one of the first in, possibly aim to get there half an hour(ish) before opening so you have time to park and get to the entrance, but really aim to be the first into the p...

Re: Scarefest

Hi guys, I was just wondering if towers enforce the 15+ rule? my friend's 14 but he'll be 15 in December and we were just wondering how strictly they enforce this rule as it'd be a shame for him to miss out when he's only too young by like a couple of months.

Re: Scarefest

Hi guys, we are going to scarefest on the 22nd and 23rd and were wondering whether we get our maze tickets when we get there? We looked online but saw no individual maze tickets for sale online and we only want to do tott, the welcoming and hom, not sub species or the Altonville mine tours. What sho...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I think we might be looking into this a bit much? I doubt there's hundreds of animals included on this structure but anything goes I guess.

EDIT: Video available from TT Facebook https://www.facebook.com/towerstimes/videos/10155740341618185/ Ooh, I like the music in that, I wonder if it's any indication of what the actual ride's soundtrack might be like... I just really like the pagan vibe of it, I'm fairly certain that main instrument...

Yes, it’s not overly scary and probably on par with TotT it terms of scares :)

Thank you, I can't wait to try it out in two weeks exactly!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

They can't mislead the public, if they officialy say that it's from SW8 then it's from SW8 Not necessarily, if they say something and you believe it then it’s on you, and it should be noted that towers have yet to ‘officially’ say anything about this product :P. I’d be personally very surprised if ...
