Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

First time I visited Alton Towers was in 2010 the year th13teen was opened. I was 9 around the time and I went with my mate and his family who absolutely loved rollercoasters unlike me who despised them. I remember walking down towers street toward the bottom and seeing storybook land when it wasnt ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Just realised how amazing it is going to be to see a wooden rollercoaster on that site in 1 years time!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Thank you, OhShambhala! :D The backstory of the ride first is set in the Katanga Canyon itself. This is home to the tribespeople who live in the Katanga Canyon themed area. However, the pirates of Mutiny Bay are getting greedy and have decided to extend their territory into the Katanga Canyon. This ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Its going to be interesting seeimg the fully built SW8 on the 2018 map as the past major additions to the park are normally overexagerated for dramatic effect on the park maps mearly look at 2013's map and how large the ride actually looks. This will be interesting because of the area the rides in b...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

For all we know it might just be a giant structure of some sort not even revolving around a wickerman at all. Might just be a bridge or a giant skeleton seeing as its in gloomy wood

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I have an idea about an alien/sci-fi theme could be perfect for this area. Tqirling toadstool could be rethemed to an alien saucer of some kind, frog hopper could be turned into something revolving around the moon and zero gravity, gallopers most likely would be removed from the park and even though...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I arent the biggest fan of IP's so I dont really like the idea of a wickerman themed ride espicially something significant as a worlds first coaster. I know thorpe park did it with Saw: The Ride but I feel some great themeing (and yes Saw foes have fantastic themeing) will come to fruition with this...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Do we actually know that the structure is a wickerman or is it just a giant structure of some sort i mean it does look kind of like a head on some shoulders but for all we know it may just end up being completely different

Re: How many visits per year?

I normally get around 1 visit a year and I like it that way as it seems better as I try to make use of the full day out getting on all the rides not just the coasters and thrill rides :D

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Can I just ask who in their mind would place a worlds first ride into gloomy wood? I have also discovered a plot that involves the very words SW into the WICKERMAN; 'W', is used in the Wickerman and is also used in sW8. It was planned from the start. If they use haunted hollow they knew that they'd ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I just can't stop thinling about the possibility of a pirate themed wooden coaster as it works so perfectly. I see it as RMT is katanga's coaster and with sw8 close proximity to mutiny bay i just feel that it should've been themed to mb amd not kc. It could have been called the kraken or something a...
