Tesco Cereal - Merlin 2-4-1 Vouchers

Bought some cereal from Tesco yesterday (their fake Cheerios) and there's 2 x Merlin 2-4-1 vouchers on each pack.

Thought I'd give you a heads-up :)

Re: Have you been in an evacuation on a ride?

I was evacuated from Duel about 8 year ago just before the big spider. Had a spider next to my head creaking up and down for half an hour before the lights came on and we were escorted off.

Annoyingly the only queue jump we got was for smaller rides...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Just been clicking around the Sub-Terra minisite and seen the old news item about Jack Osbourne being appointed the role of Director of Fear for the ride. Nice to see that piece of marketing BS lived up to nothing  :roll: Sometimes I wish the marketing team behind some of these PR stunts either...

Re: SPOILERS - 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra...

This is how I predict the ride will pan out: - you're strapped into the tower at the upper level - you're lowered *slowly* into the bottom of the pit to see the egg - something goes wrong and the lights drop / dim - you have to evacuate, so the towers start to raise you up to the upper level - the e...

Um... have you failed to notice the theming of this ride?

We have a world-first, multi-inversion well-themed coaster.

If you can't see the AT magic in that you may as well hand in your enthusiast badge on your way out of this forum!

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I'm really baffled though as to what will make this ride a World First? I like Colossus, btw. I'm baffled by what will make you happy! You seem to dislike anything on here by default. SW7 is the first multi-inversion coaster in AT for a long, long time. It's got what look like amazing theming eleme...

@CoasterCrazyChris You've compeltely contradicted yourself... The idea of X-Sector is that whoever the mysterious people who are running the place are, you almost feel when you are there that they have complete control over you and that you are always being monitored and analysed.

I would have thought a lot of money would have gone on the excavation - I'm pretty sure it's expensive to dig.

Re: 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra... Part 2

By the looks of the auction it looks like there are going to be loads of eggs around London, like they've done in the past with painted cows, rhinos etc. I guess the egg theme is for Easter and a perfect way for AT to get involved with the rumoured Nemesis egg in Seb-Terra. Marketing genius! EDIT: H...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Have a look at the top-down view of the station, though. The back wall is staggered so it's not a simple cuboid building - there's a fair bit of space cut out of the building.

Re: 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra... Part 2

I think we're much more likely to see a TV spot like they had for Thirteen on GMTV before any TV adverts are aired.

I'm excited that this is shaping up to be a more mature dark ride. It's perfect, in fact - Ice Age for the kids, Sub-Terra for the adults.

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Looking at the station building and where the exit stairs come out, it seems like if the ride was to do a 180 right hand turn out of the station it would clash with positioning of the stairs. Then it wouldn't have enough room to drop before reaching the platform. an interesting way around this woul...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

whilst you might be right, i don't think the theming can be viewed as temporary, as it will most likely need foundations for it. also, i might be wrong, but the GDO covers any building up to a hight of 10m which covers the station, i would think that it's just the theming that needs planning permis...
