Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Now that's very interesting. Like you said, the previous plans stated the roofs were to be thatched, so maybe they've definitely moved away from the Kantga Canyon theme? To me, that style of building with the wooden boarding and wooden roofing doesn't shout Gloomy Wood or Katanga Canyon. But to say ...

Re: Which SW coaster do you think will be removed first

I hope that if Nemesis was to go they would retrack it with the same layout - do a Hulk. However I fear It would be viewed as a pointless investment, spending money (that could be spent on a new SW) on an 'old ride'. After getting through the pain of imagining a Nemmy-less Towers, I'd like to see ho...

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

This will be a shame, I think the potential for a MB woodie was great, an opened out entrance would have worked nicely leading from the main MB area. Guess time will tell.

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

I'm very sceptical about the location of SW8 in terms of MB, KC, GW. I think it will be rather strange to be stood in MB and seeing this largeish woodie a few steps away from you but for it to be a completely different theme. Baring in mind that Sharkbait Reef is literally a few steps away from the ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The coaster itself should be passing through the Wickerman centrepiece, as on the plans 'Theming Envelope 2' appears to be the top down view of the Wickerman - it looks like the head and shoulders if you were to be looking down on it. The coaster track runs through the structure on the plans a numbe...

Re: Drayton Manor

I enjoyed Ben10 and it's queue, so I'm quite curious to what's going to be replacing all the Ben10 theming inside.

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

The land its on, due to location, is most likely to be used to expand CBeebies.

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

I didn't expect this at all, I guess the wickerman theme does fit with Gloomy Wood.

Will the ride entrance be switched to the opposite side of the ride area then? So you actually have to go on the Gloomy Wood path to get on the ride rather than the entrance facing Mutiny Bay?

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

I've seen a few people suggest that the map shows SW8 is in Gloomy Wood, I was under the impression it was comfirmed as part of Katanga Canyon? I feel like this is just because the map has been designed to not include the path from Mutiny Bay to KC. If anything, the map shows SW8 is closest to Mutin...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

CCL seems very bare indeed, I have never liked the area and consider it the weakest part of the park, I feel a complete retheme is required but I can't see this happening now we have the CCL driving school :?

More of a 'friendly' Wickerman perhaps? Rather than a witch-killing torture device? ;)Image

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Apologies, I must admit I forgot they were sound tunnels. I was just thinking about the wicker man theme. There was a film out recently about a boy who has a tree companion - A Monster Calls (think it was a novel previously). I'm not saying it will be an IP, but similar sort of story? I just thought...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussio

There's nothing wrong with tunnels! Going through tunnels at speed on a woodie is great fun! I just feel from on offride perspective it would be more visually appealing without a tunnel from the top of the first drop to the very bottom. Either way these are just from the plans and this could change.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

One concern I do have is the amount of tunnels, tunnels are great yes but I think this would be a coaster that benefits from being open, the whole first drop is in a tunnel on the plans and I don't know how I feel about that. An open first drop will definitely look more impressive offride anyway.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

My gut is telling me this is going to be a fantastic experience coaster. We know Merlin can do theming and think this may be one of their best themed attractions. I'm very open to the voodoo/tribal theme. The queue is going to pass through and around the ride area with no cattle pens - this is a big...

Re: The Future Of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; The Rid

If I was asked to redevelop Cloud Cuckoo Land with unlimited funds, I would retheme the entire area in-line with the Enchanted Village. The area would be called 'Enchanted Wood', or something similar, to tie in with both the accommodation and pre-existing areas of the park. I would remove Charlie an...

Re: SW8

When I first heard there was a woodie coming to AT I was immediately holding out for another Wodan/Troy so the plans have initially disappointed me - as it has many of you. However I think judgement should be reserved until the ride is complete and the proof really is in the riding. Smaller GCIs, li...
