How the front of the portal looks completed, taken from a paper this morning.

And today at John Lennon Airport people got the chance to be first on the list to experience Galactica later this month.

Deb Moore one of the lucky few have received a ticket and will be taking flight into Space on the very first day of the season 19th March.

The preview event for Galactica recently sent out via mailer and more information on Monday I presume will occur the same day.

- Shock Wave at Six Flags Over Texas
- Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags Over Georgia
- The New Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain
- Ninja at Six Flags St. Louis
- Steamin’ Demon at The Great Escape
- Goliath at La Ronde
- SUPERMAN Krypton Coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
- SUPERMAN The Ride at Six Flags New England
- SUPERMAN Ride of Steel at Six Flags America

Wow that's a huge uptake , I guess it gives you a nice refresh on rides without a huge expense so no surprise but that is a lot of rides.

It's a shame they didn't repaint the track or trains a different colour. A deep blue would have worked well. It looks too much like Air as it is so I imagine it will continue to be called Air by many. We've seen how a simple fresh coat of paint can make a ride look brand new and the different colour would have differentiated the two themes.

I'm guessing the trains at least might be repainted/parts replaced, because many of the pictures still show the Air-blue colour and the trains still look near enough the same.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. The media images used today were only done recently. If anything it'll get the "Air Space Technologies" on the front other than that I wouldn't hold up hope for anything major changing on the trains themselves.

The track has been cleaned and that is about the extent of work that'll happen on that.

Dya think that's a logistical decision? Dealing with the different paths and whatnot leading into the photopoint? Or because it was rarely used? At least I rarely saw it being utilised.,

I have spun the wheel on the game far past 100 times, and still have not won anything, wondering if I'm doing something wrong or the competition has ended?

The competition is still going. It's just pure luck if you win something. I'm in a similar situation in that I have spun the wheel numerous times and haven't won a single prize. Only thing you can do is keep trying :)

Yeah, the prize wheel is bugged so much. It doesn't give daily spins, and when it says you do win a prize, you get nothing apparently.

Yeah, I won on day 1, have recieved nothing. They say they're having "technical difficulties"

Ha, more like they've lost the database of winner IDs and they don't know what to do!

Can also confirm I won free tickets and fastracks 4 days ago and got my confirmation email just fine!
That said, the email confirmation is far from convincing, I have no idea how they're gonna verify it other than my email address. Apparently you just show them the email at admissions.

Hopefully a clean and maybe paint, don't see the point in any more than that since most people won't even see it now cos they'll all be plugged into the matrix.
