Bear in mind it is just something I knocked together for fun and is entirely just for artistic purposes so isn't even necessarily accurate to the layout we already know, and this is just what I think the theming element MIGHT look like, it's looking like the head could even be more of a ram's head type thing actually, and I very much doubt any fire effects will be that big, that was more for dramatic effect but still, this is really more just like what I imagine a possible concept sketch for SW8 might've been. (I didn't put any people in the train because I suck at drawing people.)

As good as having an animatronic in the main theming structure, I personally highly doubt Alton would keep on top of maintaining it... Sure for the opening year, it'll look mint, but then it'll just be left there to die. However, if they did opt for the option of an animatronic, that'd sure be pretty cool to see, however, not entirely sure how they could incorporate that in with the rest of the structure.
