All the information are rev...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

A second gate at air has been a topic of conversation for many years. It was included in the long term development plan that was published about a decade ago. If it was to become a second gate I think it would have to be exclusive to certain groups such as disabled, pass holders, resort guests. If ...

Re: Oakwood

I do think that a family thrill scale GCI/Gravity Group for Oakwood would be great. Drenched replaced with some kind of elevator lift water coaster and a mining themed area, inspired by Tornado Springs, would all be amazing for the park's future.

Re: Drayton Manor

It seems like Drayton Manor is going into administration and it is rumoured that Mellors are not taking over now. Sad times indeed

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Yeah I absolutely agree. I think though that when details are revealed later on (if they go ahead), they'll definitely edit scare mazes with no touching from the actors but they'll resort to jump scares and freaky appearances throughout the mazes. In terms of the mazes, I could only see Sub Species ...

Re: The Next Themed Area or Area Refurbishment

Yeah I think Gloomy Wood is up for debate. Maybe that will be SW9 and it'll have a special element or break a record for the UK, Europe or the World. Either Intamin or (dare I say) Vekoma and themed to the area.

Re: The Next Themed Area or Area Refurbishment

Now that Cloud Cuckoo Land will be transformed into The World Of David Walliams for 2021, what area is next for a retheme, major refurbishment or some kind of major new attraction? Next SW? New dark ride/flat ride/water ride and where?

Re: Djurs Sommerland

Djurs Sommerland have revealed on their Facebook page a new attraction has been pushed back to 2022 from 2021. A themed sign has appeared, but theoretically, I think if we put 2 and 2 together, this sign is on the Jungle Safari ride site, which closed in 2019. The site labelled for 2022 is also on t...

Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If all the rides operate at under half capacity (2 people per row is now 1 person per row and for 4 person per car rides and coasters turn it into 2 per car and one at each side of the coaster car or ride car) and the park capacity is reduced drastically till the end of the season then it could work...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

Yeah I completely agree. I think that Alton Towers Resort will relaunch World Of David Walliams and other parks will relaunch their new attractions.

Chessington has an absolute field day. Rainforest area and Drop Tower in the same year haha!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

Yeah I think if there was anything else as well as a relaunch for Walliams World, then it would be a few thousand pounds worth spent on refurbishing services like toiletries, planting, gardening, etc.

Re: SW9

Yeah that would be nice. It would be nice if Mack Rides did an extended Powersplash layout that's more of a water coaster than just two inclines at either side and a splashdown. Also something similar to an Aquatrax, like a Chiapas style system maybe, would be nice.

Re: SW9

What kind of coaster would be added in that site though? Would it be something with a lift hill or a launch and would it be low to the ground, a twisting & turning type coaster?
