If SW8 has half the detail that went in to The Welcoming then we are in for a treat!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Yes - it is very much a construction site so don't take anything there as being finished. The park will need the extra route capacity for Fireworks crowds.
I believe that the temporary pathway behind the ride will be closed and used as a staff access route only - but we shall see!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

There's definitely a washing machine element inside it! :P In all seriousness, there's no reason why they have not constructed the track inside other than the structure has been heavily under construction up until now, blocking access through it. You can now see where the track is being built inside...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Having read the report and watched the presentation, I am generally concerned about the future of the parks. I'll be quite honest - I don't care much for Merlin's Midway attractions. For me, they are a 'do once and don't bother again' type experience. Generally they don't change from year to year (w...

Re: Efteling

Exciting! Although the park has some epic attractions anyway, I feel it is missing an iconic coaster to attract thrillseekers world wide.

Re: Toverland

It's a beautiful park that keeps getting better. I remember attending for the first time in 2004, then went back last year and the difference was astonishing. Both rides look like great additions. It seems like the Wing Coaster is going to be B&M's most popular ride they sell - quite a few are a...

It's hard to tell from the photo - but is there clear signs of ongoing construction? Seems like there isn't much difference compared to your January photo.

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

As I said before, OPTIMISM! The Resort would not keep announcing fundamental pieces of infrastructure like transportation, hotels etc if it was not going to happen. We have been hearing from them at least every month now. To draw up an agreement with TFL is a huge deal. You could jump on a boat from...
