Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

That looks like wire mesh to me too! (#rockwork)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The TV speculation is entirely plausible. I wouldn't be surprised to see an official teaser not long after installation of the screens. The fact that the viewing window is a different shape and size to those already cut out suggests there will be televisions - and that these windows are clearly tele...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I agree with you ATI. Why do parks set out to purchase wooden coasters with those ugly steel supports? All I can think of is cost, but would having steel instead of full wooden supports be much cheaper?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Personally, the steel beams don't bother me that much, I'd be more bothered if the majority of the structure was steel rather than wood - such as on Invadr (which looks very ugly).

What is the actual purpose of the change in gradient?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Sorry for the double post, there's no edit button? Nice pic from twitter user @blue5onichd: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DDFFyEMXYAENSJ_?format=jpg&name=large It shows the panelling on the maintenance building. Is the contrast in roof colour between the station and mainetence significant at all? ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Nice pics. Amazed at the rate this thing is going up! Can't believe the mainetence building roof is receiving panelling already, its trusses were only just being brought onto site last time I looked. I can't wait to see more as the top of the site (presumably) will be the next section to receive wood.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Fair enough, I stand corrected. What is the room next to the ore-show prior to the station, a holding room?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm sure that the pre-show room will be on the ground floor. After the pre-show you'll exit the room and go up the stairs towards the platform, like on The Smiler.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

That's very much what I believe it is going to be like, Aiden. It won't be an IP in any sense, totally original theme on an ancient ritual. It's going to be very exciting crashing through the structure like mentioned.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

There appears to be panelling in place on the roof structure for the station.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Are we still meant to be getting "Theming envelope 1"? Clearly the structure going up currently is Theming envelope 2, has there been anything to suggest we are just getting the latter now?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'd agree actually, I never have felt like I'm in actually in Katanga Canyon until I'm next to Pizza+Pasta, or maybe a decent distance up the path by the waterfalls with the music playing. This coaster will definitely feel like it's in Mutiny Bay especially if the entrance is facing Sharkbait Reef l...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

This is something that has always bugged me ever since SW8 was placed under Gloomy Wood on the map. It's ridiculous if it is to be GW! The proximity to the Rapids, and like you said, the Katanga sign is minuscule. Failing that it's practically in Mutiny Bay anyway. If it is to be Gloomy Wood, it may...
