Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I'm hoping the tv ad will be in the same style as the last few (Smiler and Galactica) looking over an animated Towers Street at the ruins with some of that lovely tribal Mountain King playing! That would be a great way to make sure the adds are recognisable to the AT brand and draw them in and then...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

This trailer has really got me excited for the big reveal on Monday, hopefully they do a countdown so we know what time the reveal will come at.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Wow those smiler designs make it look a lot more sinister and reminds me of SAW at Thorpe Park

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

That's awesome but I'm curious as to why they didn't give it much theming as all the other SW have a lot of or at least one large theming element.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

It's a shame Air (back when it opened) and The Smiler never had its planned theming.. such good concepts! Hopefully there won't be alternative concepts with this ride.. and I'm glad they might of scrapped the 'Theming Structure 1' as it would of lost a good viewing point of the ride from the queue....

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

This video  is linked to on the SW8/Welcoming site - what's up with the music? I can't tell if it's just music from the welcoming, or if it's the first glimpse we might be getting of the ride's soundtrack. Sounds... weird  http://forum.towerstimes.co.uk/images/smilies/icon_neutral.gif Someone said ...

Re: Future of the Monorail

Hopefully they change the windows because one of my favourite parts of the monorail is going over Forbidden valley and seeing the Nemesis monster in full and Galactica.

It could block your vision as you're about to go down the first drop, catching people off guard.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

For non VR riders, they could add near miss objects like it's rival coaster in the UK, The Swarm. They could theme it to a FV style with rocks and maybe the odd Nemesis tentacle to strengthen the link between the two.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

They could spray it as you went through the large Wickerman structure. Which would be so cool.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I think they'll release a re-themed and reworked dark ride each year, this year they brought back Hex and they did a really great job. Next year it might be Sub Terra and then in 2019 it could be Duel. Duel has already been confirmed to be receiving TLC over this closed season. As for what level of...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

Yeah you guys are probably right and if the rumours are correct and Sub-Terra is given work over the season, I wouldn't expect them to do a lot of work to Duel. They're both dark rides even though their both quite different. I think they'll release a re-themed and reworked dark ride each year, this ...

Thank you! That looks like a fun ride, hopefully they do bring it back for the 2018 season.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

Yeah that would work, it’s actually a better idea than just a having sw8 right next to a completely unrelated haunted house, even if it was refurbished over closed season

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I hope this ride comes back, I never got to ride it originally as I was too scared to go on what was called, “the first ever attraction at a park that’s had too be rated by the British film & entertainment board” by the news. Are there any links to videos going through the ride? I’ve seen the dr...

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

I think Oblivion is one of the only rides of the big 6 to not get TLC when they probably need it? Oblivion's last paint job was when the Smiler was introduced to fit with the re-theme of X-Sector. Hopefully it gets a mini Hex update with improved speakers and TV screens because the videos are great ...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I got to ride Nemesis for the first time this year, I've been afraid of rollercoasters until this summer when my school took me and my friends down and I haven't looked back since. Nemesis is a highlight of the few large rides I've been on, it's got the intensity of The Smiler but with the smoothnes...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Hello, my name's Tom, I'm new to the forum. I'm a big fan of Alton Towers but because of living in Scotland I don't get down much to see the park.
