    Alton Towers | Wicker Man | GCI Wood

    The entire structure is basically up and just needs to be tracked. Going into the off season it’s mainly the electronics that need to be installed so there should mean it is finished early and they have more time to fully theme and test it.

    Alton Towers | Wicker Man | GCI Wood

    In terms of locations this ride can lead into, do you think we could get an area re-brand similar to The Dark Forest for Gloomy Wood or Katanga Canyon? If not, what about a new area within the back of the Flume area that is now empty linking to the Haunted Hallows area? Judging by the backstory...

    Alton Towers | Wicker Man | GCI Wood

    Does anyone have the map that shows the planning permission areas, it shows the general development areas not requiring the layout to be shown? (I swear I have seen it). It will be interesting to see if the whole area from the fluke site to behind the old ripsaw site is covered. Could this...

    Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train (WC16) | Thorpe Park | May 2 That simworx van could indicate that they have a version of this installed as the train carriage.

    Alton Towers SW8

    I don't know that much of the landscape but if this is to go from Ripsaw to the Flume site wouldn't this have to enter into the gardens going under the Skyride? I cant see how that could stretch it out that far as they couldn't build a massive lift to give the momentum required as that area is...

    Alton Towers SW8

    I know this is from 2011 but it seems very relevant, the SW8 signs graphical style has a sort of pirate theme.

    Scarefest/Fightnights/Howl"o"ween/ UK Scare Season

    Just to add to the Fear part, I went last year (Opening year) and I must say I was impressed. The circus maze left a little to be desired but the Anarchy maze was truly a hidden gem, it was very atmospheric. The level of theming for a small farm on their first year was brilliant. Very excited to...
