Another thing in the video is that creepy picture of some guys head floating amongst trees, to the left of this 'Eliot'.

I noticed that too, not sure what it's there for.

Teammaddiz, Have you tried doing the same with the screams coming from the phone during the SW6 part of the video?

The bookshelf moves as well!

The movement of objects could be pointing towards witchcraft!

Good spot Justin. Also, to add to your alphabet, I think the runes at 3:01 at the bottom of the picture may equate to 'ground breaking development', but I'm not 100% sure due to my Previously mentioned potato video quality.

Yes, it does. I posted a picture earlier in the thread but the runes are not clear.

Don't know what I'd do without this forum! I need all the info but I'd never be able to figure out this mess of a video!!
Life is a roller coaster. You can either scream every time you hit a bump or you can throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it.

Oh, and a mini tree appears on the desktop halfway through the video.

I just searched him up. He's a UK YouTuber with slightly under 500,000 subscribers. He's done some UK theme park vlogs before.


He is also good friends with YouTuber, Joe Weller, who has nearly 4.5 million subscribers, as of when I post this.

I've also noticed that The Flume's station tap also features in the video at 1:12 alongside a Sub Terra egg. 

EDIT: I've noticed this easter egg from The Smiler's construction as an easter egg in the video

What has to be remembered when being picky about names is that these videos and marketing strategies are aimed at a much wider audience than enthusiasts. People who most likely don't care for small mistakes like that.

It seems that they're actually showing us two things at once in this marketing. They're showing us the history of the SW line which is aimed at everyone, but also showing us the new Ride which clearly has a dark theme. That's why it seems a bit all over the place with who this is targeted at.

I don't think these are easter eggs. I just believe these are nods to other rides at the park
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 1568!
Ride count 2019: 416!
Cred count: 81!

It's seems interesting they have gone for the likes of Elliot Crawford in this video, as his YouTube audience seem to be for young adults, maybye suggesting that's what Merlin want the target market to be, which might not the reassuring. I'm not sure though, he might be involved so that the ride simply gains more publicity. Merlin wouldn't want to make another TH13TEEN mistake surely...

I am excited for us to work out all the new runes and try and get even further ahead of the game! :)

That's what I meant. Tomato, Tomarto.  :lol 
It's still nice to see Sub Terra and The Flume are being acknowledged.

Sorry for taking so long but there doesn't seem to be anything in the scream: http://imgur.com/a/nKs4C
From what I can see the only message in the audio is at the end within the white noise.

Hi, long time enthusiast but new here. I see I've been mostly beaten to it but I've been working on this runic alphabet myself. The only additions in mine are that I've had a go at the I and K, not sure how accurate they are as you can barely see them in the image (the "Ground Breaking Development" one) but I've given it a shot.
