Despite the awful weather at the weekend, it was great to finally see Wicker Man in person.
The Wicker Man itself is absolutely stunning, and is by far my favourite theming element on the park. I can’t wait to see it running with all its effects. What is unusual is how it can be seen from numerous places across the park. While not obvious, it blends in well with the trees, which is a nice touch. The plaza area in front of the ride was open today and the music was playing too. All I can say is I can’t wait to feel the atmosphere around there when the ride is running.
The whole area has been finished off really well, obviously we couldn’t get a decent look at the queue line theming, but what I could see is very impressive. The shop has also been very well done, I love the wide range of merchandise on offer, and may have spent a bit too much in there
I’m hoping to be heading back to Towers next week, and if the whole experience is as good as the reviews have said, I can see this knocking The Smiler off my #1 spot.
