SW7 Sweepstakes - Guess the name!

Tue Apr 10, 2012 8:57 pm

Well, this is a bit early - but for a bit of fun, why the hell not... (Also note that this thread may die on its arse due to bad planning, lack of humour, me losing interest or all of the above).

SW7 is around the corner... so let's have some fun with it. I'll be posting various questions in the thread and all you have to do is submit your guess at the answer. Whoever is closest wins a point, and whoever wins the most rounds by the time SW7 opens, well, wins.

ROUND ONE: On what date will the BH Tent begin to be removed?
Ritadz: 12th June
SpinballEdders: 28th April
ryanoxall: 15th May
stelios7: 11th April

TomG: 28th May
the son on the hole: 18th April

Magrathea: 12th April
Blaze: 16th April
djtruefitt: 16th April
Nightfall: 16th April


WINNER: Magrathea - 3 point! Runner-up: Nightfall - 1 point!


ROUND TWO: Guess what outrageously OTT slogan will appear on the construction boards around the site?
Ritadz: "Face your fears on the most intense ride ever built!"

ryanoxall: "the lord of darkness' second coming, in 2013"
stelios7: "Testing... Unsuccessful... Coming in 2013"

the son on the hole: "Testing has begun, dare you help us at <ride name hint>
Magrathea "can't think of anything suitably awful" ;)

Charlee: "Scientist deem new ride unsafe after test dummies fall out of extreme ride! "
MinteButtons: "The appearance of "mysterious men" around the black hole site - after a strange thing was found during routine maintenance."
ZenakuShi "huge governmental slip up- DNA testing machine gone haywire, all areas in the immediate vicinity to be detained. Full investigation coming"
the son on the hole: "mysterious spotting of men walk around the old black hole site have been seen at alton towers *que photoshopped picture of two shadowy men walking in x-sector*"
djtruefitt: "After recent resortation work, something strange has been uncovered on the old black hole site, and the builders are now too scared to work alone!"

Just a question, does the first question mean when the tent actually starts to get disassembled, or just when they start clearing they area?

Can I have half a point? I did say they’d start minor work today.  That wall has been practically falling down for ages.
