Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Looks much faster than expected in some areas and much slower than expected in other areas, I will give it time time to warm up before I judge however. :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Just a quick question, is the park traditionally quiet on Easter Sunday or is it generally quiite busy?

That rocky wall is giving me serious Skull Island vibes. Of course this will be a much better ride  :lol

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

That is some pretty large theming pieces, I have a feeling this could be one of Merlins biggest theming projects to date.  :lol

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Maybe the storyline could be of a mine being affected by some sort of curse? It fits with the Welcoming story. You could be getting ready to go on a mining tour but the curse arrives in the preshow and your mine cart (the rollercoaster) goes on a cursed ride? I don't understand? Are you getting thi...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it seems this section is after the helix and the theming structure fly through going into the turnaround at the top of the site. Of course I coud be wrong but I think this is probably correct.

Remember that 'mistake' worked very well for the park. They managed to rake in allmost 3 million guests in 2010, a record year if you think they didn't even pull in 2 million last year!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Everything is begining to take shape all of a sudden and, from what we have seen from the layout so far, this ride is set to be so much better than we imagined! High banking, airtime and a layout that uses the terrain!  However the amount of negative comments, especially from the TTSP Facebook page ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I dont see how people could think its gonna be in Gloomy Wood, the entrance is in Mutiny Bay (Katanga Canyon at a push) and Gloomy Wood is still a good 5-10 minute walk away when using the old pathway past the rapids. In my opinion, the ride will be in its own sub land bridging Katanga and Mutiny. ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

http://i.imgur.com/cheqTJe.jpg This photo is confusing me, there are two bents going off into two directions (after the drop into the pit) but in the plans it does not show track to be in that location, I'm trying to get my head around it??? Unless that section is after it goes through the theming ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

That rendering has me very excited. This is very far ahead but does anyone ,who has been to previous opening days for the secret weapons, have any tips for getting one of the first trains? I would love to, however I'm not sure how things work on opening days for rides.

In what way do you mean size? Height of the ride or track length?
