Re: Cedar Point

Just watched the video of the riders. I'm in awe this thing looks wild.

Re: Six Flags Fiesta Texas

The way this tears around the track almost looks unreal because of the new design. I can't wait for PoV & reviews of this thing.

If you want to stay dry, sit on the left (or hope that they've fixed the faulty mister!)

Well considering its on the old flume site some may like the "moist" aspect.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Seeing on-ride POVs now in the dark it seems the on-ride photo is between the first & second sound tunnels, that dip.

Looks amazing but that tight turn after the second sound tunnel especially in the dark looks to be the highlight of the layout for me, it whips to the side fast.

Re: Silver Dollar City

That looks like fun & the turning of the cars is not that intense it'll be disorientating or sickly. Very solid ride.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'm sorry but this is a step backward, why have CGI flames? I'm pretty sure they are not the real thing as we've all seen the real footage.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

This is going to look amazing at Scarefest but it's a real shame the smoke won't be present on the actual ride as it gives a great atmosphere around the Wicker Man. I'm assuming the smoke machines were purely for the promo photos anyway.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

There's a 5 metre Freefall drop and then a backwards section



Stops in the maintenance shed, a section of track turns a 180 so your hanging upside down, artificial fire below lights up all around, you free fall and then all goes dark. your dead lol.

Have to admit the quality standard isn't quite there for the price. I'm all for limited edition stuff but don't feel this is worth the price.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I do believe this will become the best ride in the UK. It looks incredible, can't wait to head over this spring.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

They've removed the POV but everything else is exactly the same after playing them both side by side and the POV is cut & extended with the sun through the trees scene.

Tweaks to the color are a lot more vibrant in the new version.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Whoever reported that has too much time on their hands. Enthusiasts are enthusiasts at the end of the day, to some people it may bother them. For The Smiler the world's first tag was warranted as it is a stated fact it has the most inversions in the world but with Wickerman & before that Galact...

Wow I wonder what they're gonna put in to replace them? I personally think they might just have a bit where you pay at the turnstiles.

Would make sense I guess. To save money hiring additional people to sit in the booths all day just have machines.

Originally I wasn’t sure on the track colour but it looks a lot better than I imagined it would.

I love how Amanda said the track / support color echoes the sunsets of Blackpool. lol.
It really is coming along and I can't wait to head up to Blackpool to jump on this.

Loving all these Wickerman teasers, the best marketing material Alton Towers have done in a very long time. Really digging Wickerman & it's overall aesthetic & feel.

Funny you posted that Rob as I was watching that same video yesterday morning.  I was thinking back to the aerial images and the large rectangular object in the theming structures shoulder which could be one of these systems. The only problem with these is they use lighting and surely the environmen...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'll reserve judgment on the tacky world first tag when I see how they've incorporated everything to do with the attraction. Must admit though when I did read it I made the facial expression of my avatar. Can't fault the promo videos/artwork/snippets of audio apart from the countdown videos. It'll d...
