Re: The Most Magical Merlin Dark Ride

I've voted Hex and Bubbleworks before it was manhandled by Imperial Leather.

Journey to the centre of the earth at Disney Sea, to build a entire working volcano out of rock is a pretty amazing feat. Also I think Phantom Manor should get a mention as it the greatest haunted house built ever, nothing has matched it's eeire atmosphere. Hex is probably best themed ride we have i...

It sounds good whatever they mean but you couldn't do anything on the opposite side of the street unless you moved the admin to a different section.

Hmm. Do you think Black Hole will be removed in time for a new attraction to be put in it's place next year ?

Are blue sky meetings just general meetings?


Well Blue Sky Meetings for Imagineers is when they begin comingh up for ideas for new attractions. I don't know if a Tussauds Blue Sky Meeting is the same thing ?

That rabbit really was quite cruel, he dragged that poor girl quite violently through that place.

I like the idea of a open ended haunted walkthrough, something for Thorpe to think about.

Not a patch on the original. It doesen't have the same dark edge as the orignal one did, it's like AT ripping out Nemesis and putting Nemesis Inferno in it's place.

It really sounds lethargic that's all I can say (bit like CATCF). They shouldn't have replaced it.

I think there hasn't been a good orignal Dark ride from Tussauds since Hex. You can't say they are getting better I think Bubbleworks and The Haunted House were the best dark ride in UK but I suppose that crown belongs to Hex because Valhalla is really a mish mash of a ride that has no clue what it ...

This is the Tower of Terror at Disney Sea. It's actually not themed around The Twlight Zone but a different storyline altogether.

I know what your thinking "Why Tussauds Why Aren't you stinking rich like Disney".

I've just seen it. Go on ATA forums and look for the new Alton towers Ad thread.
It's pretty dull but the highlight is that man using the big chair as a toliet.

Something funny with my browser, I think. You've put a link up there haven't you Rory but I can only see the link if I click quote. Also when I click on the link it just says Our New TV Ad in red but no video.

Tussauds does not have the money or the talent to do anything in the standard of disney but they still should try. I think Tussauds should set up a seperate company similar to Disney's Imagineering Ltd or Universal Creative. Something other than Tussauds Studios but a company that dreams up ideas th...

Why is Rita first place ? I thought Nemesis or Oblivion would be top. It looks like Alton Towers are trying to hide the fact that most of their recent coasters aren't that great as the orignal two secret weapons.

I'd imagine a major indoor coaster is highly likely because there's a lot less noise than an outdoor one.


Exactly. Also they demand far more theming and a intresting concept to be seen to be new and different.
