Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

The red lights do look fantastic.

I'm glad for such an iconic ride, the park really does look after it.

Re: Six Flags Dubai

I think that is positive!?

There are rumours on another forum that the project has been cancelled as the contractors have not been paid.

More general information from an article posted a few weeks back here.

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Choosing which rides we hire for ERT would not be based around what footage we need, but we do like to alternate the coasters on the events so we'll try to film the rest over the course of next year.

Re: Chessington - The Future

That's a great ride.

However, right about now, any new additions would be welcome at Chessington.

It's coming on 15 years without a new coaster.

(And no, Scorpion Express does not count).

There is a minimum of £30 pre-payment when you first order ...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

How do you get accepted to film on rides? I have a GoPro and it would be nice to get some footage on the rides and attractions. The POV's were filmed on the recent TTSP event, outside of operating hours. Permission has to be obtained from the Press Office, and Health & Safety will need to appro...

Re: Rumba Rapids

Those plastic boats are not even made by Intamin - they replaced the originals, which had a much higher back rest, years ago.

Very much doubt the new safety measures are genuine either.

Wow, that's nearly 400ft. Only the Intamin towers attached to Kingda Ka and Superman top that.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Both the fog in the pre-lift section, and steam in the Wicker Man structure were on for the shooting, as they would be normally. You may notice that the picture goes a little cloudy after passing through the structure - this was the best version out of three taken. The other two literally had water...

Re: TT Summer Festival 2018 - Reviews and Feedback

What an absolute blast! So nice to see some new faces and friendships made. Will the Wicker Man talks be available on YouTube in the future? I'm afraid they won't be available this time. Due to the nature of some of the things included we were asked not to film the talks on this occasion. Is doing s...

Until when are tickets available? Tempted to come along again (I even have a tacky Hawaiian shirt to go along), but pay day isn't happening until a week before the event for me. :)
