Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Went on this a few days ago, I think that the main illusion of the train changing is overlooked by most people - and to me, didn't seem that impressive?

Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't the inner, modern train just moves into the other section and then just moves back at the end?

Used audacity to view the white noise at the end of the video as a Spectrogram and just as I expected there is something hidden within it. Looks like "Be Chosen"?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Surely though if you are rotating/mirroring the symbols they lose all meaning.

edit: Thinking about it, maybe thats the point? they wanted us to manipulate them perhaps

Well, I just copied the link and got this: https://az772917.vo.msecnd.net/media/4940/plaque.png It clearly says "plaque" not "plague" ??? There appear to be 2 links:   https://az772917.vo.msecnd.net/media/4951/plague.png https://az772917.vo.msecnd.net/media/4940/plaque.png Both ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I found something quite interesting. If you go to the SW8 page ( https://www.altontowers.com/sw8 ) and open the SW8 image in a new tab, the name of the photo is called plaque.png. Black Death? Dragons? Wickerman? I dont know anymore. EDIT: I also found that the background image with all the symbols...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

While I do think 'Be Chosen' is the most convincing speculated meaning of the symbols so far, there's also the chance that they have no specific meaning as such and are more just there to convey a certain theme. That said, it could be that they will play a more significant part in the marketing cam...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Anyone know if the park is likely to be busy next week? I'm assuming there will be school trips in last week of June

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Bit of an update I guess: The Smiler opened today before 10. They were testing for a while with no problems. It was running all day yesterday at about 90 mins queue apart from one point when there was a small issue, it was fixed in about 20 mins. I was on about the 2nd/3rd  public carraige toda...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

What do you guys think the chances of it being open this weekend are? I've been waiting months for this trip to go on The Smiler:( Who can say? Some days it's been opening close to 10am, so you might get lucky. You can guarantee that what ever problems they're having, they will be working as quick ...

Self-Duelling! Called it! Oh come on we all thought it was self duelling when the plans first came out showing 2 lift hills, and it was essentially confirmed when the first NoLimits recreations went up by Nemesis94 and a few others. In other words back in 2012. Krug the Inoculator is working, it sp...
