Would make sense, considering Heide Park. But AT have never really had mainstream film related IP before?

Just me? :lol


I know you are joking but I actually wouldn't be surprised to see Duel replaced with a Ghostbusters themed ride. Not a retheme but a complete new ride system. Although Cloud Cuckoo Land is the most likely location for the next big attraction, maybe extending Dark Forest to where Charlie and the chocolate factory and Twirling Toadstool/Ice Age are. An indoor water ride like Valhalla but themed to Dark Forest would be a good replacement for Charlie.

Nor would I. I'd love to see a Ghostbusters attraction take over Duel and have the story line be related to the haunted house, possibly the Ghostbusters heard of disturbances in the area and are having a look around the building with you. Maybe have a nod to John Wardley by having him be one of the ghosts?

You could have the hearse replace the zombie outside and build a new pre-show in the queue line so the current building could seem identical.

Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself and I'd doubt something like that would be a major development anyway!

Merlin have just added a ghostbusters dark ride to heide park so doubt they would use the ip here too.

See I disagree, if I have an IP I had previously worked with I'd use it as much as I could. But like I say I'm very doubtful although it's certainly not impossible...

I definitely think we'll be seeing a B&M for SW9, I'd say around 2021/2022. I'm hoping for a Wing coaster, but I don't really know where SW9 will go...

I'd like SW9 to be a launched wing coaster from B&M - all of Merlin's wing coaster installations so far look/are consistently great, and are just pure fun to ride. If Alton Towers were to get one I think combining elements Raptor (ground hugging layout), Thunderbird (launch) and The Swarm (just because it's a great layout) could make it a real winner!

Be interesting to see where sw9 goes in the park. I can't imagine it being in ccl - especially if it's most likely going to be more of a thrill coaster.

The car park behind Galactica would seem the most likely location for a new large scale thrill addition, if that's what SW9 turns out to be. That area has been earmarked for development for quite some time now.

Anywhere else around the Towers would obviously require the removal of some pre-existing attraction and I would say that is very unlikely to happen within the next 10-15 years at least in both Dark Forest and X-Sector.

I really can't imagine any coasters being constructed in CCL, the positioning of that area is on the very edge of the Churnet Valley and as such would present a significant noise problem, as well as also requiring severely restricted construction heights. I would think its far more likely we would see some sort of dark ride in CCL, potentially utilising the former Charlie site. There's no reason that this couldn't attract a "Secret Weapon" code name, as it would likely be a significant investment on the same sort of scale as previous SW's.

Do we think they'd utilise an unused area for SW9 or replace an existing coaster? Obviously would be nice to see Rita replaced with a new mack/intamin LSM but how likely is that? Would its popularity have to wane a bit before that?

Also, how extensive is the area between FV and the gardens? I seem to remember rumours of an RMC there (lol). Would a megalite or something be feasible along there with landscaping/encroaching into the gardens slightly?

Apologies if similar things have been asked already!
