Re: Project 2020

The picture attached is just a brief idea of where I'd imagine a hyper to go and what the layout of it would be.... at this rate though, looks like it ain't gonna happen  :lol

Edit: How do I paste/attach pictures to posts?? For some reason it isn't showing up :(

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

Falcon's Fury seems to have been down for quite some time now and apparently they're waiting on new parts to come? Wonder what's going on  :roll:

Re: Flamingo Land

Why, why, why has this made it to the news!?

Coasters do this so often and I've been to Flamingo Land before when this has happened and nothing was made out of it. The media really mustn't understand how rides work that well.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Does anyone know where I can find the full Wicker man soundtrack? The only one that seems to be available is the main IMAScore one but i'm trying to find the queue line and station audio :/

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

After seeing a few recent videos from Pleasure Beach Experience, it looks like Icon is now testing on 3 trains. Also, the Icon logo has now been added onto the station building along with more theming and rock work taking place! :)

Re: Project 2020

I've seen somewhere recently that the next coaster that Thorpe Park will be installing will have a top height of 50 metres and will be on the island just behind the swarm. A lot of RMC coasters have the height between 40 and 60 metres so there could be a chance that it might be the UK's first rmc :)...

Re: Project 2020

I feel like a B&M Hyper would fit well in the loggers leap area and going behind inferno and the rapids. With an RMC, I believe it would go well behind the The Swarm :) I guess only the future will tell....

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

A full track walk is currently taking place on Wicker Man at the moment whilst a growing queue of people wait outside the ride entrance! Looks like Alton Towers are doing their best to see if Wicker Man is good to go for a soft opening today :)

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

It does look good, however, I do think they should have painted the pyramid, although I can understand why they haven't with Ghost Train. Hopefully it will be an improvement as X isn't a great coaster. I'm just worried that we will have an X:/No Way Out style attraction with sudden stops and just a...

I think it's also worth noting too that the live stream showed the trains speed with no test dummies in.... This thing is gonna be fast!! :D

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Not sure if this has already been added in the discussion yet, but I've been thinking about the Soundtrack for Wicker Man. All the videos that we've seen released from AT have all had small snippets of some sort of music. Do we think that all of these together will form the Soundtrack for Wicker Man...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I am honestly so excited for this! Even at day time, the effects look great and I love how they are still using mist even if it isn't as much shown on the pictures a few days ago.

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 liv...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

If you exclude all the marketing and the sancutary and look at just The Smiler as it is now, It's far from a doom and gloom 'dark theme' to be honest. I could see SW8 working with the pagan theme in the same way. I wouldn’t say it’s a happy theme. It’s extremly sinister and is designed to make you ...
