Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Though it wont be the best GCI or woody it shaping up to a very solid experience. I a weird way I see this becoming an icon (heh) of the park in the future sort of like nemesis obviously not as good but its shaping up to be a solid experience

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

They did get the people who themed baron? I heard that somewhere but I can't where and if its true but it'd explain the look of the themeing.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm really digging that entrance I love queue lines that incorporate the full coaster into it also that themeing looks huge. I wonder how the trains will interact with the structure (how well the trains are themed) and also how and if the structure will be automated or have effects

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

I can see it being more katanga themed but its far to close to mutiny bay to be katanga or gloomy wood IMO so I think we'll see minor themeing changes to mutiny bay to accommodate it. It could be a pirates voyage to an island with paganism.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm really liking how this looks off ride at the moment can't wait to see it when all the themeings in. It looks very smooth from the last batch of pictures. I reckon we'll see some themeing unveiled at scarefest or just before it

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Late to the party here but seems to me we have a clear theme and story kinda with technology and the enviroment. I do the sacrifce of sorts will be another theme personally. As for videos they're making I appreciate them and they're great marketing but I can't stand it but hey not aimed at me and it...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

When I first heard about duel alive I found it hard to believe it was even allowed! Yeah its pretty incredible actually I assume thats why they never did it again because it was a health and safety headache. I cannot wait for a refurbed duel, I've accepted that they'll keep the guns but considering...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I really like that approach though I appreciate something special at the end of the day a great coaster will hold strong for years while a worlds first element or surprise may not last

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Well its certainly pagan as the runes seem to be a mixture of Irish ogham writing and Scottish pictish writing so I dont see us getting meaning out of them. It may not be monster it could still be a tree as the tree holds a lot of symbolism in paganism

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

They did say its getting TLC this closed season. I'm hoping for a revamp and removal of the guns but they'll most likely touch it up like Hex( which was done really well)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Saw this on Reddit this morning and rushed here, so its defiantly pagan themeing which is great and we'll be getting some scarefest experiance for it, so I wonder what that is. Also be chosen is similar to join us or don't go alone from the smiler and thirteen which is interesting

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I know its a long way off but I'm so excited for the trains to arrive and for us to see some queue line progress. The coaster is also looking great

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

The same person who did sub terra and the ghost train is doing the themeing for sw8 so maybe we'll see NST and Duel both refurbished because Duel really needs it

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Themeing is coming back now I think Merlin and other parks have realised how much it changes a ride. I'm excited to what queue like themeing this ride will have. I'd agree smiler has alot of themeing as the queue line fits its theme but themed ride is thirteen or hex at the current moment

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I really really enjoy this, I think honestly it could be the bodie setting that being said the fins on the themeing do look animalistic and they're certainly covering it because it'll give away what the themeing is. I think its definitely in katanga however but I do entertain the idea that it may be...

I doubt that it will be the gruffulo, it will be a new IP as they know a branded ride such as this would not go down well
