So looking at the following picture, you can see how you will get from the station to the ride shop; you'll exit on the opposite side of the track that you board, and then go up, what are rainbow stairs in the game, to exit over the track coming into the station. Then you'll go down stairs until you're at ground level and then exit the main station building under the stairs you went up into the station. The rest of the route is shown on the image...

Unless you go almost STRAIGHT DOWN and underneath the entry stairs, it looks like a physical impossibility.
Also, what is it Tem?


Before the building had walls we could see three widths of stairs leading in to the building. There was a slight gap between two of the stairs, suggesting that two lots are leading up and one coming down. I think at the bottom of the stairs will be a baggage area like on Thirteen. Then after leaving the ride you'll walk down the stairs, get your stuff, and than walk round and under the stairs to come out where the red line is on this picture.

Who thinks that the shop should be called 'Retail Therapy'?  ;)

Do we think the area where those three people are working will be enclosed (roofed) where you will be directed straight into the shop?

Here's another good question, who thinks that the roof on top of that entire bit will still curve round like the plans?

It's so they can shuffle the trains around when putting them away and taking them out.

I'm sure it will, so you wont see daylight from getting off the ride until leaving the shop?

Yes, you can already see the frame.

Though I'm wondering what's with the rainbow starcase? I think that there may be a possibility of a scare maze, or the likes, 'cause that's gonna be pitch black...

I don't know whether I'd rather walk past the knot rather than through a corridor?!

Someone already pointed this out before!

I think it was decided that it was either a mistake, a spare, or for a theming element.

Anyone else realised that the boards on the base of the legs. Well some of them read differently.

E.g the hypnotiser reads from the floor up. Yet the Giggler reads from the top towards the floor. As can be seen here.

The grey things cover the metal frames. There's only two of them so they aren't feet. I assume they are colour coded for left and right. I guess they will be theming.

I think the area I have outlined in yellow will all be enclosed.

Anyone know what these black rectangular objects are? look of similar size to each of the screen sections of the marmaliser. They have scaffolding up in that trench.

There's another one of those things just up and to the left on that photo. I'm sure they will serve some sort of purpose - perhaps a themeing element, or drainage perhaps, as the ride is partially below ground level?

Interesting spot there :-k The game does show scrolling text along that trench, so if you're right, then it looks like it will be in the real thing too :)

The one on the top left has a support in it, you can just make it out in that picture.
You can see it better in the top of this picture;
