I'll post the video when it's all done editing in a few weeks. He couldn't talk too indepth about the new developments at Alton Towers on camera for obvious reasons. It was very interesting though!

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion Part 2

I met up with Brendan Walker a few weeks back.

He mentioned that what he helped design wasn't the worlds first feature.




Make of that what you will.

Re: Battle galleons - What a mess!

The walls, boats etc can get away with aged themeing - I feel it adds and gives it a real dark feel. However, things such as the beach, just doesn't look right.

When Thirteen opens, Ivy, mould etc will all ADD to the experience imo.

Th13teen scare maze?

How about The Curse of the Dark Forest.

Here is a little route that could happen - They could erect a long tent (Boiler House, Seven) - It would be VERY atmospheric! :twisted:

I wasn't privy to the update on the area until today and all I wanted was to see these 4 bloody pictures and I had to cycle back through TEN pages (over two days) of crap to be honest just to see the progression. Is there anyway we could have a locked topic just solely for updated pictures as it's ...

Yeah, anyone who wants a good idea of what could potentially be happening with this ride in 2010, read into Brendan Walker and his work.
