I thought you got the choice of whether you become a submariner or not?

Re: 2012: New Attractions

Surely this means SW7 won't be in FV? I hope so, it's busy enough all ready and with a new attraction next year, it's not going to get any quieter. If anything, I think it makes it more likely it'll be in Forbidden Valley. I've been saying for a while that I suspect a link between the "Greats&...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

The more I think about the ride, the more excited I get for it. Especially the whole "bigger dark ride concept", which admittedly went over my head the first time I read that article. It was stupid for me to think that the ride will just be Extremis. I also hadn't noticed the mention of an...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

I'm looking forward to seeing exactly how this is implemented. Whilst Extremis has had good things said about it from people on here (with the exception of Diogo), I'm not sure exactly how it will measure up to proper theme park attractions. After all, Extremis is featured in the Dungeons attraction...

Re: The 'I Feel Down' Topic

I'm sorry if this is a really moany and emo post, but I'm feeling incredibly depressed. My mum and dad sat me down for yet another talk about how ashamed they are of me, telling me repeatedly that I'm selfish, and that I'm not really welcome at home because "it's just not working" that I'm...

Re: AVATAR Coming To Disney Parks

The IP won't last, like Dinosaur. But at least with Dinosaur, the ride is basically a dinosaur ride, and can work without any knowledge of the film. This will be a lot more specific. I know it's the highest grossing film of all time, but I never see it referenced in memes or popular culture, like H...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

Going off the subject of the famous Merlin shipping containers, what do you guys think the main ride area will look like? I personally hope it will look like your underground with the walls and ceiling looking like rocks etc. :) I think it will look like that too. Loads of rocks, stalagmites and su...

Re: Nemesis Reaches number 12 in the Golden Ticket Awards 20

The Golden Ticket Awards are a joke. American-bias in the extreme. Sent from my HTC Wildfire using Tapatalk I think it makes this achievement all the more important. Americans are always going to be biased towards their own, but for something British to rank so highly shows how good Nemesis really ...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

charlie has a pre-show, its not good but it has. Driving school kinda has one with the instructions on a tv screen. Duel too has a pre-show, a rather large one that is part of the queue. but then dig a little deeper: oblivion has the story through the queueline nemesis has a massive backstory but o...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

I dont think the preshow will be that elaborate, too expensive... Altons preshows consist of a movie at best Alton doesn't have that many rides with a pre-show, and Hex's pre-show is pretty good (and consists of more than just a movie) - heck, the only ride at AT that I can think of that has a pre-...

True, but wasn't there word of being a pre-show? I can see how a simulated lift would fill that role.

Maybe it's the same company that made the Glass Elevator at the end of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

I've not been around the ground floor very much since I have no business there. I go in through reception, through the double doors, up the stairs to the 2nd floor where design...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

@towers freak, that image has come up a few times now and although it hasn't been ruled out, the fact it's a new, unproven ride system means it's quite unlikely. :) It might be unlikely, but I certainly hope that's the new ride. It's a good combination of drop tower and spinning around :) (I know t...

Re: Future Merchandise Ideas?

I want to see more mugs. Not just the oversized, novelty-type ones they have going on at the moment, but more normal-sized ones. They have that 'monorail of mugs' that you can buy, and I've got it, but I also want to see normal-sized mugs based on attractions like Rita, Sharkbait Reef and Duel. This...

Re: The American version of X Factor...

I was very disappointed. Everything about it seems "very dry". Our version has warmth, but in the States, the judges seem really dull. Can see this flopping... From what I've read, the show hasn't been well received in the States. The only praise I've seen is for Cheryl Cole, who quite a ...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

I emailed a friend of mine at Merlin Studios, and he said the ride is called Vertigo, and attached this ride restrictions notice. Do you think we could work out what the ride is from the restrictions? http://i55.tinypic.com/28sndjt.gif What I think is weirdest about that is that it says people that...
