The Wicker Man and Outlast 2 both have similar themes as they are based around a group of people who live in a forest in the middle of nowhere. Likewise, these cults have some sort of god/supernatural idol that they look up to.
I believe that if SW8 was to be part of Gloomy Wood, Duel could be refurbished into some type of old church that could be where the cult bases themselves. The ride type would be kept the same (maybe without the guns) but would have the theme of trying to explore/escape the church and discover who these "people" really are. This is just an idea of course, but it's something I thought would fit in well if Duel was to be re-themed

Duel has already been confirmed to be receiving TLC over this closed season. As for what level of attention it’ll get, at this point it’s anyones guess. I can’t imagine it’ll see any drastic changes except effects being fixed and maybe some improvements to the lighting.

Duel would need a big investment though, which I can't see Alton paying for anytime soon, but I could be wrong! I think we'll just get an improved Duel with fixed effects next season.
