Re: Old maps, posters, guides, collectables etc for sale?

On eBay it was £15 but I'd expect people to pay more Wow! Just looking around and some of the AT stuff seems to go for amazing/ridiculous prices.  I've got a reasonable collection of maps etc, from the 80s but although there's a part of me that would sell them, I know I'd probably immediately ...

So, what, if SW8 opens 2016, they start getting planning permission etc at the end of this year?
Or around April next year. Personally, I think sw8 will be pushed back a year as many people still haven't rode the smiler but will still want to!

Re: The little things that make the magic

The Monorail, the first time you go to Towers (and you see Nemesis and Air) it just tells you you're going to have an amazing day. The skyride, nice views of the valley and got a good soundtrack. The theming... it's just amazing!
