Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I wonder what kind of queue times we will be looking at opening day/weekend? People will no doubt flood there in droves. And why not it looks incredible!!

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I've only had the chance to ride it once and i really enjoyed. Ok its not a major attraction but with AT's lack of flat rides it was a good filler ride.

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

When I was at Scarefest, 2 years ago, I'd never done a scare maze.....too much of a wimp, but then decided to bite the bullet and buy a ticket. We went to TOTT, walked over the bridge 1 by 1 and was then made to wait at the bottom of some stairs. We were waiting for ages as there was a hold up in th...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If The Smiler doesn't replace Nemesis as the #1 coaster in the country, then I don't think Wicker Man will unfortunately.. if anything I strongly think it will be the 3rd best coaster in the park.. but with theming.. that beats everything :lol With regards to spoilers I have only seen 1 from snapch...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I've never really ridden wooden coasters apart from the ones at blackpool and never really been a fan, bit too rough for my liking!! But with this im really excited as this is a full ride experience!! The theming looks incredible, and i'm really intrigued as to how the ride will end? Will it replace...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

i think it needs a whole re-theme. I like the idea of the guns to make it interactive, but i cant stand all of the l.e.d's!! so if there was a technology that could get rid f those that would be good! then re-theme it to an 1800's old gothic mansion with gargoyles out front and a new bone chilling t...
