Went on it today and can confirm their was smoke in the station, and both shoulder flames were on
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move

Holy hell that looks so cool! Will definitely have to go back for Scarefest!

I’m eagerly awaiting to see Wicker Man with all the red lighting and actors walking around, should be a brilliant year!

Get yourself to Scaremazing! :)

I am really looking forward to experiencing Scarefest this year, and in particular, experiencing more night rides. It should be really good; Wicker will look amazing. I did see it through the fence the night before opening and even that was impressive!

Has the resort confirmed that the Wicker Man actors will be surrounding the area, or is that purely speculation? Nevertheless, I'm VERY excited to ride Wicker Man in the dark - however, I'm sure the queues will be more scary than the ride  :lol

At this stage it’s speculation, however, there were wraiths around Thirteen during Scarefest in 2010, so it may be that there are a few actors around the Wicker Man plaza this year.

With The Welcoming: Be Chosen being situated next door to the ride, it is plausible that the maze will be allocated some extra actors to try and blend the atmosphere between the maze and the ride.

It's a great idea but I'm unsure if it'll happen. It seems that Towers struggle to hire actors so they'll be focussed on using them in the mazes.

Speaking of effects, it seems the smoke effect in the station is finally working as it was originally intended, as shown in this picture taken by Thrill Nation on Thursday.

Only saw it like this at the beginning of the season. How epic will it look at Scarefest!!!

The smoke shouldn't be behaving like that. It's not supposed to leave the wicker wall on the other side of the station. 

I would surmise this is why you don't see the effect on very often.

I think it looks quite effective how it is in my opinion.

Station smoke wasn’t on on the 13th September, shame, it looks so effective! Mist through the structure was working well though, quite a soaker in the front row!
