Re: Flamingo Land

I really hope this one is true, I'll have to pretend that Thorpe finally re-tracked Colossus when I'm on it.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I'm not very experienced with this stuff but was planning to visit tomorrow, would the rides be expected to be able to operate as usual from opening tomorrow?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If Wickerman can't open this weekend is it more likely that the opening will be pushed back a whole week (so it will be on a Saturday) or just until the weather improves enough to open (likely Monday based on the forecast)?

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

As long as I can still hear that music I'm happy with keeping Oblivion how it is, although I wouldn't complain if they added an inversion.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

A week until opening day and still no TV ad, is that normal? Now that we know the opening date I would have thought we would have seen something by now, as I can't really think why we haven't got one yet.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I've posted on here and another site that this ride is supposed (what I've been told by a good source whom I won't reveal) to have a secrecy surprise element like 13 has, I don't know (and I don't want to know) what it is.    All will be revealed (if there is anything to be) on opening day.   Retur...

Ah okay then hopefully we'll get a full pov soon, I feel like the pace is going to make or break this ride for me.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

We might also see real fire inside the structure further away from the track, as I'm not sure that the wicker effect on the wickerman itself is actually made of wood.

New video just been posted on the Alton Towers YouTube, loads of runes on there, looks like we need a translator. https://youtu.be/1CyouN5REFo

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Just saw something on Facebook about London commuters being trapped in a wicker cage as part of a promotion for SW8, seems somewhat similar to the smiler's marketing campaign.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Just thinking about this marketing campaign so far compared with the one for the smiler, what do you guys think about the possibility of us getting an app this time and if we did get one, what would it contain?

I'll probably be disappointed but I'm really hoping this is an RMC.

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

The undiscovered island thing would fit in well with the idea that these people don't like new technology, sort of like those tribes in the Amazon which have no contact with civilization and attack helicopters which are taking pictures with spears.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know if the path which connects forbidden valley with the hotels has reopened (its name escapes me) and what time it usually opens?

Marmalader? That sounds tasty. Is it a food and beverage unit? 

That would have been a great name for the queue line kiosk.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Thanks although I can't really tell where things are on the TPW pictures which is why I was asking, I should have really made that clearer.
