Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

I saw the structure in person on Jan 2, and I’m pretty sure the scaffolding wasn’t there, and there were the sound walls up on the helix. How was this photo taken?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Why don’t people do further research into the articles they make? If you research beyond the name you see that the theme is different to either film

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

This could be a tenuous link; however, with the announcement due tomorrow, a little speculation can't hurt. Bear with me, but this focuses on the number 8 ! Secret Weapon 8 Also known as SW8 Countdown Videos (Facebook) It was noted on Facebook that the countdown announcements were posted at the fol...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

From drone videos we have seen, the welcoming is still standing. Could this be incase SW8 is delayed like the Smiler was, and they could reopen The Welcoming in March, like they did with The Sanctuary?

Re: Scarefest Mazes for First timers

You should be fine, last year was the first year I did Mine Tours, Sub Species and the Garbage (Welcoming). Start off with House of Monsters, it’s just fun. Then do TotT, My friend did this for the first time this year and loved it. Becuase you are in a conga line the maze feels less intense, especi...

Re: Events Calendar 2018

Will the SW8 meetup be all day? I’m at the park that day and was just wondering if it would last all day, I’ll definitely be there! Hopefully at Sizzler and pretty sure I’ll make it to Scaremazing!


Edit: Is scaremazing or Sizzler 18+?

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I think the fact that up until this point there has been no mention of there being a "world first" is pretty indicative of its relative insignificance. Therefore, I can't imagine it will be a "world first" in relation to the actual ride system/hardware, but perhaps something mor...

Oblivion with back to back seating? Just a suggestion. It would provide a whole new way to ride such as classic ride.


That could be cool! It would be strange facing up at the sky, but I would like to experience a backwards vertical drop without going to Hansa Park!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It would be good if it was used as the entrance, but looking at the picture I can't tell if there is any gap for you to be able to walk through, so I'm not absolutely certain. It won’t be the entrance. It may have an entrance like Th13teen’s, and have this above the entrance, but I think this is be...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

With the theme of SW8 getting clearer, I think Duel has the potential to be re-themed with some major refurbishment taking place. If anyone knows what Outlast 2 is then this will make more sense. The Wicker Man and Outlast 2 both have similar themes as they are based around a group of people who li...
