Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Is there a specific time that the park will 'shut' so to say. I see right now The Wickerman queue is about 150 minutes. I'm going to the park tomorrow and if we were to get into the queue, right now just before 9pm and then will we be able to queue up until about 11:30pm and then ride? Or will they ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Does anyone else think that they'll add live scare actors into the maintenance shed during scare fest, as that's what I think it's planned for.

Yes, my school and most others in West Midlands broke up on Thursday. Going to Towers on Wednesday, hoping it isn't too busy.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Just thought I'd post this here after not seeing it on the forum and seeing it on a group. The website PicSolve that do the photos for Alton Towers Rides, had the name 'The Wickerman' in the code of their website, confirming the name of SW8. It has since been removed and changed to 'SW8'. Here is a ...

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

Hi all. So I'm going to be going to Disneyland Paris on a school trip February 26th-27th, will be the days we spend in the parks. On the 26th we get a half day at Walt Disney Studios, and on the 27th we get a full day at Disneyland Park. I was just wondering, will it be busy when I'm going and what ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I love the smiler, both the ride and the themeing, but the one thing I can tell stand about it is that I find it to be a really jolty ride. I found it more jolty than all the rides at Blackpool, which is pretty surprising. Still one of my favourite rides, however!

Re: Ride Downtime

I'm sure I saw someone in the Facebook MAP group the other day say that they heard a loud bang off Rita a few days ago, engineers have been trying to fix the part. In track I'd presume.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

How busy will the park get? I'm going to the park on Friday the 27th and was just wondering how busy the park would be, with it being half term and all. Another question for you all, what's the longest queue you've ever seen / been in at the towers :)

Re: The Drawing Board: Dark Forest Concepts

A vertical launch coaster? Is their any of them already in the world? How would that work? Or does rip ride rockit sort of count as that. I'd of taken Rip Ride Rockit at towers for sure!

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I feel as if Wallace and Gromit / Shaun the Sheep, could possibly work out well for a re-theming of CCL especially with the new shaun the sheep films coming out. I can't actually think of any rides that would suitably go with the theme, however. What do you think?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The chances of The Wickerman being related to an IP are incredibly small in my eyes - Alton hopefully will have decided for SW8, as with The Smiler, a custom theme works better than an IP. Personally I'd also agree with others in saying The Wickerman film is honestly a terrible IP, and I couldn't s...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

ImageAnother reply off of the Towers Team? Do you think this confirms that the new ride will be based off of the most recent Wickerman film? Or do you think this means nothing?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Hello all, new to all this, but just played the video backwards and nothing could be understood unless I was an idiot and missed it. What I did notice (although this probably isn't true) is that the two people speaking did sound somewhat German, which I did notice was also the website  http://www.wi...
