Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

Medieval fishing village would work very well. I can imagine a good storyline where the villagers have myths of the "Gloomy Wood beyond the village boundaries" so sacrifice/perform rituals. Not sure the lengths that Towers would go to do this though, e.g. Battle Galleons boats - would they...

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

Personally, I'd welcome a Mutiny Bay retheme to a Medieval village or something similar. However, I have no idea how they'd go about retheming the exisiting rides and attractions. Sharkbait Reef and Battle Galeons would be very tricky.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

They've covered the maintenance building quickly.. don't suppose it couldn't have anything inside waiting for us? I thought this also. I mentioned a few months ago that the track leading from the maintenance building to the station (as well as the track leading from the break run to the mainetence ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

A ride can attract the GP for being thrilling alone, if anything, a darker theme may decrease the number of GP wanting to ride it. For example SW8 could be the first coaster for a child, but they may easily be put off by the intimidating theme.  The ride doesn't have to be thrilling and have a dark ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Didn't think the video was too awful, I did cringe at moments but we were given lots of clues. Very excited to see episode 2 when we are taken to the construction site.

Distantic, that says plaque (i.e. ornamental signage) not plague ;)

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

SW8 construction has taken another turn today with some interesting additions to the top of the theming structure https://i.imgur.com/DxPyCxL.jpg I have said for a while that I believe the structure will be a Minotaur of some sort and the addition of these "horn like" pieces would go some...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I really do like this Nyaminyami/Myaminyami legend, it would be perfect for Katanga Canyon. The heavy earth-moving sentence that you found makes it even more plausible.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I just did a bit of research on African tribal myths and legends. One legend stood out for me as it ties in with Katanga Canyon, as well as speculation concerning the SW8  construction . "The Zambezi River God, or Nyaminyami, is a dragon-like creature believed to command all life on the Zambezi...
