Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Great pictures. Does anyone know what those concrete cylinders are for? They've been in that spot there for some time, I originally thought they could be pre-made footers. However, they are too large for wooden coaster footers. I think some have ladder rungs in the insides, could they be for undergr...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I've just read through the four documents included in this latest planning application. The cover letter mentions lighting on the ride which is interesting, whether this is to cover all bases or whether there will actually be lighting on the coaster itself. The Queue Lighting Details document shows ...

Re: Ride Downtime

I was on park yesterday, it was a very quiet day and operations were good. Rita was only down for a short time and I didn't even notice Spinball went down. Was a shame to not get on Galacticair but ho hum. Longest I waited yesterday was 20 minutes for Thirteen, after that everything was pretty much ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Looks like quite a short ride, but I guess we don't know what's happening in that first section out of the station!

Found that Wickerman very amusing :lol :lol

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

If I had to guess I'd say that rebar could be in place for the foundations for the first turn/drop from the lift.

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

Wasn't sure where to put this post but TowersLovingCare have posted an image of a new or refurbished Duel sign. They also have stated that the ride itself will be receiving the TLC treatment at the end of the season over the closed period. Could this possibly hint that the ride could be getting a re...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I agree Owen! The Invadr train design is very nice, we haven't yet established the theme but I have pondered what would be on the front car if they were to go with the Wickerman theme. Perhaps a Wickerman head or the logo?

Re: SW9

Would make sense, considering Heide Park. But AT have never really had mainstream film related IP before?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Invadr POV uploaded by BG Williamsburg https://youtu.be/9qQG7iN4AbM . This gives a small insight into the kind of ride we may be getting, e.g the tunnel and it does generate quite a speed. However I was left relatively unimpressed and thought it was quite short. Obviously SW8 won't have the chain an...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Have they not hinted at 'new destinations coming soon'? Also when someone on twitter questioned them about the new destinations their reply was: "We do have a lot planned for Galactica and we would advise to keep an eye to our webpage for more info soon!". This isn't a coincidence, the bac...

Re: The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure - 2017

I guess this shows Merlin are almost there with their theming, I was amazed to see the projected images onto the water vapour screen! Gives a bit of hope for the theming and effects we could be getting on SW8.

Re: The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure - 2017

Really don't get the obsession with those bloody fountains, the ride and theming look fantastic but to have the fountains at the end with the exposed troughs?? Ruins it for me. Does anyone know how the hell they've linked them into the story and narrative?

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Wish people would stop freaking out, it's clearly the new 'destination' (or one of) for Galactica. If it was the Big 6 why include aesthetics of only two rides at the park. Galactica background, with Smiler 'S'. The new VR film will have something to do with the Smilers theme most likely.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

They've also changed the buildings, the shop now appears to be separate to the station, maintenance and preshow building.

"Shop and station reduced in size".

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I don't think anyone has really discussed the SW8 feature on the 2017 park map. The images we've seen so far aren't the clearest and it's quite hard to try and work out what's actually there. When the season officially starts on the 25th the map will be uploaded on the website, so we should get a mo...
