Re: Galactica

I was on park today and Galactica was still operating with no VR, did see an employee of Figment on site though with one side of the station blacked out so you could not see what was happening on the other side.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Went on the smiler at the weekend, nice to see more effects working, more than the last time I went on anyway. I agree that the music is a little loud at the start of the lift hill.

Re: Scarefest

Visited at the weekend, great atmosphere and rides in the dark as usual. Enjoyed the score zones too, freak show is a nice addition.

The application indicates that construction will start in September, if approved.

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I've always had a good experience on Galactica, I also like the fact it can be updated so you get a new experience.

Does anybody know when new planets may be added? Last I saw was a poster saying departing soon when I was on park last week.

Re: SW8

I do like the look of this, with some good theming this could be a good experience/ride although being an SW I was hoping it would be a bit bigger.

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I was on park yesterday and rode Galactica twice, it worked perfectly both times. Although there were a fair few empty seats due to headsets not working.

Re: SW8

I was on park yesterday and a member of staff told a friend of mine that what was coming will be bigger than the Smiler, not sure if that's already obvious from the plans though.

Does it still say time to get corrected before u get on the train?

And has the overall bass/volume been turned back up in x sector/ the Q


I think it has been amended to just say Join Us.

The music still doesn't appear to be as loud as previously although still a reasonable volume.
