Re: PortAventura 2012: "Shambhala" B&M Mega Coaster

Shambles hasn't ruined the look of Kahn, Port Aventura have, by paiting it stupidly bright colours, including the trains! https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/552032_3345954721584_1050254701_32918095_874879652_n.jpg BLURGH!

Re: Alton Towers 2012 in Review

Just found this on YouTube > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yBzon12xpE Apparently Gardaland are using the exact same advert for their Ice Age 4D attraction! The only difference being the Towers in the background and the logo's! So much for seeing the bubble cars on Towers Street! The advert wasn't ...

Re: Alton Towers 2012 in Review

A few changes Iv'e noticed this season (sorry if some have already been said) -As mrbrightside said all the different themed pieces of monorail audio have been replaced with one generic piece to cover all trains. -New monorail station videos, lots of advertising however they have been very well put ...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

^Which is what I thought might have happened. That way they could have the lift video explain the story, and then have the boarding instructions there. Dunno if there would be sufficient room though, it is a very short corridor... One thing I noticed which was a 'problem' was that people are so foc...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

They won't make the ride longer, capacity would not cope. There's no real way to make the experience longer without affecting capacity either as there's no room to have people in sections of the ride for longer. The attraction could easily me made longer without reducing the throughput, the cave se...

Re: Nightfall's in-depth Sub-Terra analysis

That was amazing! Why can't the resort think up these kind of stories and experiences themeselves? Nemesis: SUB-TERRA has such a great potential but with the lack of effects, screaming operatives and fast paced duration, the attraction in it's current state is a joke. I thought the Phalanx Operative...

Just regarding the water sprays - The water squirts out from the ceiling a few seconds before the scene so the fans can blow it on to the audience in time with the film.  :)

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Nemesis SH!T-TERRA or Nemesis SUB-TERRA-BLE the choice is yours... A quick review from me, The outdoor queue, batching, elevators and theming are excellent! But the actually main ride is a joke! It lasts literally 60 seconds if that, and to be honest it's a 3 meter drop and some water effects, hugel...

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

My review of Ice Age, will add photo's later! Amazing Attraction! 10/10 - Way better than I expected!!! The outside looks a LOT better than I thought it would! The 3D Scrat theming and eggs, wall of snow and other re-painted theming looks great! While entering under the 'ice arch' you make your way ...

Re: 2012: Ice Age – The 4-D Experience

I'd noticed Vengeance at the London Dungeon had cardboard glass's when I was looking at some video's the other day. I suppose it's not too big of a problem, like said, at least we get to keep them!  :D

Re: SPOILERS - 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra...

Wouldn't a photo kiosk have been shown on the plans though? Unless one gets built in the big open space where the shop was intended to be? But surely it's too late for one to be constructed now?

Re: SPOILERS - 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra...

There's a question Iv'e been wondering about for a while now, quite a few people have told me that Sub-Terra at some point during the attraction will take your photo? Not sure whether this is true?...but if it does where the hell do you collect them from?  :?

Re: Towers Street Refresh?

I'd love for Towers Street to look like the town in the adverts! It would create a great atmosphere for entering the park and would effectivly add another themed area to the line up. The shops could also continue the quirky theme and as many others have said the bubble blowing cars could be sat on t...

Re: 2012 Map & Marketing

Although I love how the Resort have to catergorised attractions into the lands now, the back of the map does look a little 'overly' cluttered?

Also has anyone noticed that Alton have finally moved the Flume into Mutiny Bay instead of Katanga Canyon? :D
