Re: SW9

It almost definitely won't be in 2020, that's only 2 years after Wicker Man. Major coasters are opened roughly every 4 years ('94, '98, '02, '06 '10, '13, '18) so logic would dictate that the next major coaster will arrive in 2022. I'd argue that this will be a thrill coaster as it will be 9 years a...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Out of interest, is the Welcom-inn still open or is that also closed?

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

Does it have a cohesive well executed theme? Merlin can't get any of these things right, no matter the accommodation type, because they don't want to spend the money these things deserve. But the thing is, they can, and do get all these things right all the time! The Enchanted Village is great, the...

I have to say, I adore that logo. I agree that Towers will need good marketing for this one but Merlin are good at that.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Going to Blackpool in a couple of days and I was wondering if they have a photopass/digipass or something like the 3 for £20 deal. Anybody know if they do?

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

1. It really depends which day you picked. Half Term is always really busy. 2. If it's the same as when I stayed, you'll get a fastrack for most of the rides on park, and maybe Wicker Man or The Smiler. This can be used once on each ride spread out across the 2 days you are staying on park. 3. The 4...

I'm 6"2' and the only one I've had a problem with is RMT, but then again I might not be its target audience.

Loving the addition of the classic shipping containers. A true staple of any Merlin development! ;)

Re: First visit to Alton Towers in 8 years

Galactica is definitely capable of running a 2 station service, as it was doing just that on my last trip just a few weeks ago. Same with The Smiler, although this really only happens on days when the park is full to the brim, like peak Scarefest, August and Fireworks.

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

Frog Hopper could just go to where it used to be before Ice Age 4D closed, as I don't believe it would suit CBeebies all that well.
