What I did notice (although this probably isn't true) is that the two people speaking did sound somewhat German, which I did notice was also the website http://www.wicker-man.com/ language. Probably nothing, but you never know, eh?

Personally I'd also agree with others in saying The Wickerman film is honestly a terrible IP, and I couldn't see Merlin using it. That is, unless the ride trains are covered with the words with "NOT THE BEES!", then I'm all for it.
SIdenote: The person running the social media account will probably tease enthusiasts to make their day more interesting. Sounds harsh, but you'd be probably bored after answering the same questions from guests all day, every day. They probably aren't the prime source for SW8 hints.

I rode Stampida again last week, and although a different manufacturer, the flat sections are hell - and this is after being retracked two years ago.
