Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I think we're gonna hear something pretty soon if it's openings end may. The last week is nigh! Won't be going there until the 12th June to experience it, finally! The days just slowly ticking by. But in the meantime I'll be at AT whilst some of you lucky peeps get on it.... I just simply can't wait...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Had a thought about how a the train will relate to fracking, due to the posters pointing towards a clear fracking storyline. Maybe your on a regular train journey, and the track is above a hole caused by fracking, so as the train goes over it, the train falls. Maybe this leads to a hanging train ins...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I remember how Derren said in an interview that the ride would be thrilling rather than "in your face scary" much like scare mazes. I much hope it isn't like a scare maze in terms of the scare tactics. Scare mazes seem to be jump scare after jump scare, whilst I hope this is more creepy an...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

When I say 24 I say this because there are 12 experiences and 2 endings, equating in 24 unique ride experiences. :) Still would be very impressive because both endings would have to make sense in terms of story with the 12 experiences before. As it would need to flow from 1/12 to 1/2 rather that 1/...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

If it's 24 then that's insane, and would make it much more understandable as to the delay. I would be happy with that and would make for even more variety. When it opens it'll be the race to get every combination of experiences! Also in the advert at 0:20 - 0:22 you can see how the camera shakes in ...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Just come back from practice dofe and saw the advert. Wow. I'm impressed, it foreshadows virtual reality and overlaying which might be what the cameras at the front of the headsets are for, in order to conduct motion tracking possibly? "My Ghost Train" I love this, and it tells you how muc...

I'll be rushing there first thing of the day when I next go and it's open. But I'll wait however long the queue is.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

When Derren starts talking about "Right now is real...", towards the end he says, "...as if that moment were your first... or last." Could this mean that death will appear as a theme in the ride? I haven't listened to the recording you're talking about, but it's what he says in ...

The only reason I can think of for this is that there's a Burger King at Thorpe.. I was just walking in a shopping centre wearing my DBGT ...

Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Sorry if images are not allowed to have brands on them. E.g Burger King

But physical adverts are around the place now. As in shops etc.

Give us a teaser of the pre-show or not of somewhere else in the warehouse! So much tease! Can't wait for it to open, a shame that it didn't open today.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

It looks to me like there are mirrors below and to the side of the train, which may explain why the window looks warped. Also, having read through the full press release, there are a couple of new details which might be of interest: The ghost itself, is the Ghost Train, it acts as a portal which ta...

As Owen says, I don't believe that the suspended Victorian carriage is a ride vehicle as such, and is more likely a outer shell which the actual ride vehicles will move in and out of.


If that's the case then they've hidden the mechanism very well for the photo.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I wouldn't be so sure, I think at this point we should know not to jump to any conclusions about this project! ;) The resort certainly wouldn't be so sloppy to show anything that would hint at anything to do with the ride experience. :) Could all be an illusion. Derren Brown is an illusionist after...
