I had my first back row ride on it a couple days ago and I have to say, my opinion changed significantly on it. The first drop and the first air time hill were nothing short of incredible. The speed I felt was beyond stupidity for a ride of its caliber and to top it all off the fire effects were working properly. Definitely worth waiting 90 mins for :lol

Hiya, just asking a quick question it's probably very obvious, I was at Scarefest and was watching the Wicker Man at night and noticed inside the head there is water sprayed out when a car has gone through just wondering if it is water and why? All I can think is heat from the cars on the track but other coaster's don't do this. As well I noticed some of the screen's showing fire though the wood on the head seem to be damaged. And a big shout out to a really nice TowersTimes member me and my friend met on the 5th outside Cloud Cuckoo Land Sky Ride station who gave us TT badges I never got your name! But thank you :) Sorry for the long post :)

Could it be an issue with the system that sprays the mist on the ride?

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move

It’s water vapour that creates a mist effect which is designed to make it look like the Wicker Man structure is burning.

I didn't think of that, I looked at my day photo's then my night photo's and yes there was no mist inside. Thank you :)

Got on it on Friday, front seat. Wonderful ride, I definitely like the pre-show.
