The fact that the Galactica background remains certainly suggests to me that whatever this is concerns Galactica above others.
And what would happen when the creature appeared?

My bet is on Big Six Challenge now, however it could just be hype for Alton Towers reopening...

I still maintain that it's the return of the Big Six Challenge.

I will be highly dissapointed if that's the case. Teasing about, well, absolutely nothing!

I was going to say TH13TEEN style, which is why it makes me think Big Six...

The Big Six was a tiny thing that really shouldn't be hyped at all. its just a marketing thing. its not difficult to ride all 6 and the prize is a free ticket on probably the busiest day of the year. the GP used to brag that they achieved the big six and when I pointed out that anyone can and that you can't use the ticket because its for a Thursday in September or whatever they realised it was a bit stupid too.

It wouldn't be teasing about nothing.

The challenge was very popular with the GP before its removal in 2015 and now the attention seems to be shifting away from The Smiler I believe they'll want to bring it back.

I highly doubt we'll see any changes to the VR on Galactica. Figment will have been too busy working on DBGT:ROTD to be able to do new content for Galactica too.

If it is the Big Six Challenge returning it would probably centralise on Galactica, in the way it did on The Smiler in 2015, hence the common Galactica background in the two teaser images.

Just because it's popular doesn't mean it requires teasing. The rollercoaster restaurant is fantastic and very popular, but requires no teasing. Teasing is used by parks around the world to build up anticipation for new physical attractions, not some sort of in park challenge.

I have absolutely nothing against the Big 6 Challenge, I'd actually be happy to see it return, but quite frankly if this is what they are teasing and creating such a big deal about it shows the state that we're in right now, nothing better for them to talk about!

It's either 3 things, its just hyping for the park opening which is likely because for some reason I'm expecting for it to be a good season for the towers.
It could be a teaser for the big 6 challenge which would get me excited and alot of other people as is being said here, I think this is also likely.
And finally it could be a new VR sequence which I would love and would be increadible however I think thats alot less likely

Its probably teasing the opening as they could have 19th-Smiler 20th-13 21st-Rita 22nd-Blivvy 23rd-Nemmy and 24th-all of the past 5 (+Galactica background) on the same image saying "OPENING TOMORROW!!!" Or something.

Obviously Rita this time. It does seem to be going in chronological order.
