Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

That's really awful if that's the case, those effects are vital for the overall immersive experience. Let's hope they get them sorted soon.

Re: EnergyLandia

These expansions certainly sound exciting! Have they given any rough dates other than 2020? If that's the case we could see two per year :D

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The drawings are brilliant Justin! I certainly look forward to this being unveiled, and I have a feeling it may be in the next week or so, we can hope! :)

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

Quick question guys, I'm looking at a trip in the first week of 2018. The only ride I can see closed that might be an issue is Phantom Manor- is this worth postponing a visit for?

Also being the first weekend of 2018- how many days will we need? Is it likely to be busy? Thanks :)

Re: Tulley's Shocktoberfest

I also visited last night, and having wanted to visit for the last 4 years, I had big expectations! It was a fun night, and the detail and theming within the mazes are astounding, truly immersive. They seem an ideal length before it gets too much, and the layout of the event works really well. It wa...

What about the fire effects used on Scorpion Express at CWoA?


I'd consider Scorpion's Express fire effect to be fairly small in comparison to what SW8 would require to have the desired impact. Also the fact the surrounding area will be 90% wood I just can't see AT taking the risk :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

As much as I'd love some sort of fire effects, I can't see Merlin investing in what would need to be a large fire effect to have any impact. In the current position with everything being under the watchful eye of H&S rules and regs I can't see them taking the risk. However the theming element is...

Re: Fright Nights

I used to be a huge TWD fan, but that did fizzle out a year or so ago. Nevertheless I am still excited for this years Fright Night's. I'm hoping they will have perfected their in house mazes and have high expectations for the new IP. I'm sure under AMC's watchful eye these attractions will have to b...

Re: Scarefest

If it was to be in the courtyard, I wonder if they will reveal the theming structure on site for Scarefest. They have gone to extreme's to ensure very little is seen, and it certainly seems to be a focus. Either way I'm really looking forward Scarefest, they confirmed at ScareCON that AMT will be ge...

Re: CBeebies Land Hotel

Looking at pictures online from over the weekend it does look like it's been done to an incredibly high standard! The small details and focus on the target demographic will be the biggest selling point for parents, even if they do need to take out a loan beforehand! :)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm astounded at the speed this is flying up! I visited just a couple of weeks ago before there was any lift hill. I agree I think we should see track completion by Scarefest/fireworks :)

Re: Colossus

I'd personally want to see something similar to Helix or Blue Fire! It's got a great footprint with height potential as well as enough opportunities to interact with the landscape. :)

Re: PortAventura World

I went a couple of years ago and two of the weekends I was there it was open until 3/4am. It's amazing on park as by 2ish all rides are so quiet it's perfect for Shambhala re-rides :D FiestAventura is well worth a watch, but make sure you get a good spot by the lake. You may need to get there early :)

Re: SeaWorld San Antonio

They look really weird- and tiny! I know it's a family ride but those backrests don't look like they'll be comfy for tall people during the launch sections :lol

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

I'd like a Falcons Fury style drop tower on The Swarm Island extension. It would be themed to the swarm picking you up and whisking you in to the air (like in the original advert of the kids on bikes), before releasing you to fall to your presumed 'death'. Kind of like certain birds of prey do :)
