Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Not gonna lie.. this one is weird.. is it even a clue? Yes, Alton have called it Challenge 4,and the video on youtube says you need to go on snapchat to find the answer, this was strange though. Didn’t Thorpe Park give clues like this about Derren Brown’s ghost train? I might be remembering wrong, ...

I dont think the words will form a sentence, unless we have to change the order of them. So far we have Tree, centre and chosen. I guess we’ll soon see

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Alton Towers have released what i think is clue 4, on their snapchat and instagram stories (maybe in other places too) it is the word fusing written with one letter in each line, and the letters ontop of each other. The letters change into runes, in a certain order. I think the order of letters will...

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

The Welcoming Blindfold Section At Scarefest this year, i was lucky enough to be at the back of the first ever public group in The Welcoming. I had already been in the other three mazes completely fine, and i was fine in the Welcoming, until the blindfold section. I had never done a blindfolded sect...

Just out of interest, how do we know this is completely true? I fully believe it but I don’t think there is any evidence that it has

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

The documents did say the ride would be finished by December for 3 months of testing and training. I think it will open on opening day now

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

The opening line of “it is done” suggests to me that either the theming structure or the ride itself is finished. I really am loving these teasers and I can’t wait for the full announcement, whenever that may be. I think it means the ride has been finished, and they are ready to test. I think the a...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

I’d love for Th13teen’s outdoor section to be made longer, and the trims off. Th13teen is probably the Rollercoaster I have ridden the most in my life (may only be beaten by Stampida or El Diablo). I’d hate for it to leave, but would welcome a longer outdoor section, although it will never happen

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

We’ll probably get 5 or 6 more clues (if we’re lucky) I’m guessing that because winners will be contacted by Jan 13 that we probably will have had an official announcement by then

It's a great ride that needs to be given some slack!


Finally! Someone else who doesn’t hate it!

Re: Greatest Scare Attraction of all Time?!

My favourite maze is Sub Species. I only started doing mazes last year, and only did Terror of the Towers because I was too young for Skin and Sub Species. This year TotT was still great, and in a group of 5 at the back it was great! Skin Snatchers was fun, especially being the youngest, so I was pi...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

Rita is my favourite UK coaster, and my favourite non Spanish coaster. It is my 5th favourite coaster and I adore it. I know some people want it to close, but I love it. On the front row the launch is always incredible, and the airtime is great aswell. If this was to close we better get a powerful i...

Re: End of Season Review 2017

I only visited the park once this year, and I probably won’t come back next year. I think the park is just too busy, because we fit it in with Thorpe Park in April, and we only got on 3 rides the whole day: Vampire (Which broke down), Dragons Fury and Rattlesnake. I get I’m not the target audience, ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Going on from what Justin said, the queue line needs cleaning up and Gateshead put in to shorten the length of the queue path. Where the sign is that says “No eating or drinking beyond this point” There are no bins. This makes some people just leave bottles and food on the floor, making the last cat...

Hello! I’ve been on the forums since September, but never actually introduced myself. I’m Jacob and I’m from West Yorkshire.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

While I can't help but get excited when I see things like this video, I still have an underlying worry when I see how they're marketing this as a world-class themed experience as the last time Merlin did that sort of thing, we got the sensational fail of the Ghost Train. Hopefully Merlin have learn...

2017 was a great year for me with Alton Towers, I think I visited 9 times this year (I live over 2 hours away) and enjoyed every visit for different reasons, once being to ride hex once again, being there on the day the SW8 supports went vertical (May 30th), watching SW8 rise, the scare mazes were a...
