I was on site today, and unfortunately couldn't get a ride on it. Maybe next Scarefest, eh?

Re: Quick Questions 2010

2 small questons:

a) What way would you suggest going around the park, and when would be the best time to ride Thirteen wthout as long queues?

and b) On Rita, have the racing lights which flash from red to green disappeared, or are they still there?

Re: Hex ghost?

Never had a ghostly eperience in he towers, maybe because I can't remember - I haven't been on Hex for some time.

I seem to remember there being a Most Haunted or something like that which was filmed in the towers - try youtubing it, it might give you an answer to your story.

Re: The Magic List!

Following on from the post before me, retheme Air into its originall planned idea - fighting the Nemesis monster. 10 years on, no one would associate the plane idea with 9/11 as much as 9/11 and King Kong - with no disrespect meant, if anyone is offended.

Re: RCT3 Project: March Gardens

I think what's important in a water ride is the scenery. For example, Lost River in Flamingo Land is about 5-10 minutes long, and 5/6ths of it is you riding through the saffari park. Also, one with a lot of suspense could be a good instead. Suprise them, maybe a worlds first? - Though this might be ...

Re: Nemesis Shoes

I can't see why not - I you're allowed at other parks - I was allowed on Cliffhanger and Kumali at Flamingo Land.

I do seem to remember the Nemesis and Air teams telling us that shoes had to be on. Last time I went at scarefest, Oblivion had to be stopped as someones shoes fell in the hole :s

Re: Least amount of rides been on in 1 day?

That's weird - I went to last years scarefest, and managed Oblivion, Nemesis, Rita (twice), Spinball, Air, RMT, and the Sealife.

Generally, the lines have been decent every time I've been, always managing 6-9, avarage.

Oblivion is just amazing - I get so exited as the restraints come down, but due to my short memory, I always forget how awesome it is, giving it a great rerideability.

Re: Were you ever scared of the Haunted House ?

The old HH was great, even though I can't really remember it. The bits that stood out to me were the tunnel, which I can't remember its name, and the bit with the spiders - I hate them D: The little targets on Duel make it much less scary, and ruin the effect. I wish they'd install a Duel-style shoo...

Just maybe a bit of paint, or maybe make it look more like the apocolyptic/futuristic area it is, with added theming.

Just a few queries :)

a) Can someone post me a link to a good station creation set, and DazMatze's SwizzIt - I can't find it anywhere D:

b) How do you install cutom cars? Youtube or google isn't helping too much!

Re: The Future of The Flume

If they were to replace the flume, it could be some sort of water coaster themed to a sea monster attacking mutiny bay. They could barricade the area off with big wooden walls with fake 'warning posters' nailed to it, warning of this monster attacking, in the lead up tot he closed season they could...

What Route do you Take?

I was just thinking about it, but which way do you normally take to get to each ride? I normally do Spinball first, and move on to X-Sector.We then get something to eat at Mutiny Bay. Next up will be The Flume and Rapids, Duel, Nemesis and Air, before ending up in Ugland. Of course this was last yea...
