Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It wont beat Nemesis, but its starting to come together really well. Nemesis was when Wardley was in his prime lol. He has slacked off since then, or maybe just had less freedom with budget constraints and planning.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I think they have done extremely well with The Smiler to cram that much track into that space, but I think its pretty much a ride that sits on a flat piece of land. If you look at Nemesis the engineering and planning to dig that huge hole and then integrate the ride elements, queue line, station int...

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Not a fan of the cheapo pine-like fencing around the whole ride. Plus the finish of the wood is much lighter than the dark wood of the ride itself which looks really nice. I hope they add some glowy red lights or something inside the sound tunnels, that would make them a bit more interesting.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The promo shots and trains look really impressive. My only gripe is that the ride looks really short unless something amazing happens in the pre-show area. The centrepiece with the big rams head looks very well done. Hopefully the ride whips you at a decent pace over some of those airtime hills and ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

It such a shame that 2 of my best friends are total yellow bellies when it comes to rollercoasters :( I'm hoping to go sometime in late March. Hopefully the Wicker Man will be open by then :)

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

It is a bit of a shame that in 24 years, Towers has yet to come up with a better ride than Nemesis. It is still head and shoulders above all other rides in the park in terms of its design, theming, and overall ride experience. If it was opening new this year people would be foaming at the mouth at h...
