What do you mean by a conditioning chamber? Sounds cool btw


So there would be a room with the Flasher, Giggler, Hypnotiser and the other two effects all happening at once. This means that later on the ride, when the effects appear again, you will remember the start of the ride, therefore distracting you from what is actually happening.

Sounds a good idea. Could this be in the very beginning before the lift hill.  :D everyone would be 'marmalised'

Once the station walls are put up, whatever happens within the walls will be a mystery 8)

Was that yesterday or today?


It was posted 15 mins ago, but I think its an old photo. The T2G one shows the dive loop is already completed:S

Tickler brackets! I can't imagine the brushes will go on until all the other landscaping has been done. I expect the brushes will need to be kept clean. Doesn't stop them from getting the motors into place and testing them though!

I think the two airtime hills will be the most exciting part of the ride.

Hopefully with a bit of floater airtime accompanied with a head-chopper moment and the marmilising effects - they will completely outshine the multiple inversions!

Here i have found what could be the secret element
you will be subjected to a myriad of strobing multi coloured LED lights designed to disorientate the rider with a series of intimidating screens surrounding you with the Joy Symbol- some displaying subliminal messages such as "Accept Marmalisation". To add to this icy vapor is sprayed down on you with the Smiling face at the end getting closer and closer-Just as you think your mind cant take this anymore, a series of Super bright white strobes fire of in close proximity as the smiley opens and you are pushed into blackness and short but sharp drop into a rotating tunnel.

Where did you find this? It looks like RCT3 haha.

To be honest, this is what I've always thought it might be though, a pre-show before the first lift hill.
