Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'll be going to Towers for the first time this year soon and I want to know if Wicker Man has a free flow station, or is there someone telling you where to sit? If so, is there a front row queue line?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Alton Towers tweeted this out, confirming the official opening is this Saturday, and that there will be an opening ceremony. It also has a slight new teaser.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

That's where the confusion is, it says near Mutiny Bay, not in it. It's just it's own area.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

ITV news are just saying "halt", doesn't mean it is definite, especially since Towers haven't actually confirmed anything. But as saw-x-smile says, no point in risking it, even if there is no snow, the ride can't operate in those temps.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

The 2018 park map has been shown by TowersTLC, Wickerman looks fantastic. However, no indication as to what area Wicker Man is in, as it looks like they labelled the map by category, and not area. Therefore Wicker Man is labelled under thrills. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYWbLljWkAATZ6Q.jpg

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

TowersStreet has tweeted  these  pictures, showing the complete removal of The Welcoming, and a slight retheme to the Mutiny Bay Area, surround the Wicker Man plaza area. Good move, or not? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYCcuGSWAAA1P7K?format=jpg&name=medium https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYCcuGcW4AY...

To be honest, kind of disappointed with the staff uniforms.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's also worth noting that IMAscore announced that they have made Wickerman's soundtrack in this tweet. What's everyone's thoughts?

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

TowersTimes have released  these  pictures on their Facebook. Notice the burnt part of the wooden posts, confirming that they will have flame effects! Also, it looks like the warning and height marker boards are up, as well as a nice new look to the Katanga Canyon pathway. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Alton Towers tweeted out this gif which shows the structure at day and night with effects on. As assumed there is no fog on the final effects, however I do like the bunting in the foreground of the shot.
And with the half term event almost over, the focus is starting to move back to Wickerman.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's worth noting that Towers are currently running a survey on their website to see how well Wickerman has been promoted and to what we think of it so far. It could show that the teasers and promotions are kind of over, and we are in the final stretch to the opening. Obviously it could also be how ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this already, but what is everyone hoping for with the staff uniform? Like Smiler, Galactica, and Cbeebies Land.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Alton Towers have released this teaser video again, which was the same as the one from a couple weeks ago, but was pulled. It seems it is now officially released. Nothing new in it to talk about though :(

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Unfortunately I can only get out to one Merlin park every year, (because they’re expensive and I’m only 15), if it wasn’t for Wickerman I would choose to go to Thorpe Park instead with 10pm openings throughout the summer.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I honestly feel that these new openings aren't coming from Merlin. Look at Thorpe's openings this year, 6pm closures from March, and 10pm closures throughout the summer. If Thorpe can do this, then it couldn't have come from Merlin. This is Towers themselves doing this, and the primary reason is sim...
