Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I agree Dazza, that smaller figure seems to be a replication of the main theming structure - will probably be used for offride theming in the queue or entrance plaza.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm 99.999999..% sure that the rams head is on the back of a human-like head. You can see the shape of a humanoid head behind it. Those saying it will have two faces are correct I'm pretty sure. Which would still give the ride the Wickerman name. Also, take note of the banking of the track coming ou...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Very interesting. The structure is rather 'boxy' isn't it. All looks good though. Is that the ride shop up now as well?? Also, note the tunnel leading from the brake run into the maintence shed.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

They could be starting on the entrance plaza as seen on the plans. The area including where the Mexican Cantina, flume entrance and flume exits were?

Re: Rita - General Discussion

It's alright I guess, I really enjoy the launch but apart from that it's not that memorable. I just think it's quite short and over before you know it. It seems to pull the crowds whenever I'm there though. I've always thought if a major ride was to be removed, Rita would be first.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

My money is it being part of either the entrance or in the queue. For the entrance I'm thinking in a similar style to Th13teen's entrance with the wraiths.

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

Personally, I think a new mini-area (like Swarm Island) or a retheme of Mutiny Bay is on the cards. I reckon the reason why SW8 was listed in Gloomy Wood on the 2017 map was because its area doesn't actually exist yet - whether it be a new area or a rethemed MB. I know it's been said before, but to ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discus

Wow, that looks great, I hope his path is kept for next season - although I thought it was to be a service road?

I know we are a while off yet but I'm looking forward to the tv advert for the ride, I love Alton's adverts, they're usually wicked

I imagine an app will be released. They produced an app for Galactica's opening also.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The structure is far from complete, the head is probably mostly finished, but the rest of the body is not. None of the metal on show currently will be visible when it's completed. It may look very different come March.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I've heard a lot of people talk about a possible Mutiny Bay retheme to 'The Village' or 'Alton Village', I mean it seems plausible as MB would have the same lifespan Ug Land had before it's retheme into Dark Forest. I'd imagine a retheme wouldn't be too hard as MB still retains a lot of it's Merrie...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

An entrance sign with the logo, about where the horizontal steel girders are, would look great.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Thats fantastic, thank you.

On another note, this has just reminded me that I'm very interested in seeing what t he trains will be like. I remember the plans said they will have wicker involved somehow.
