  1. nah there working on disney logic, it be ready for 2034, with a new cake in the meanwhile
  2. So yesterday was the original public exhibition date however it can be assumed that was deferred, any idea when its been deferred to?
  3. would there be space to do a thing similar to brave it backwards/front row where you have a separate queue near the end of the queue? though its a space issue which it seams Blackpool is gonna have fun doing. Also with the spinning seats, don't they remove 2 rows for 1 row spinning? or have I got the wrong idea, then spinning would not be a good idea due to reduced capacity I mean if they wanted a USP or at least Unusual Selling point, just do a USJ Hollywood dream and run 2 trains, one forwards, one backwards with 2 separate queues but that forces 2 train operation always, which would probably require 3 trains to allow maintenance to handle it in a similar situation to Stealth (though thats more reducing winter maintenance burden)
  4. If I remember from the Iron Gwazi saga in the states, that project got delayed over Covid and what happened is they just stopped payments to RMC (or the equivalent fitting out contractor) and since the final payment wasn't made the ride is not handed over. Gwazi was at a point where it could of opened in a month is money was paid, staff hired and the final tests and signing off performed Its probably a similar scenario with this coaster, however in a earlier state
  5. I think legaly it would have to be new water or a trench with a fake spashdown
  6. I mean pretty much confirmed Parm Pap isnt thorpe being thorpe. too obvious too early bring back Drew Bronner
  7. Working on the assumption this is not a troll and this is a Thorpe account (which has happened before with DBGT) first section: obviously first part of a plan but section? my mind thinks rail block sections but coater sections? Not full steam ahead: well that's in relation to probably the fact its got to get trough planning approval, also this means the trains are being removed and plat 15 with it. Rocky years: again not set in stone and rocky express is going as suggesed The sign off, tannoy? clock = time = time traveller = mack, mack spinner? if true its nicely cryptic
  8. I hope we can be optimistic here, but I think the key here is to not be over hyped with this thing. You may get lots of info, you may not. If we do get a coaster type it may not be whats expected, I mean there will be people out there which if it isnt RMC or a Hyper they will Riot However I think that this consultation is happening as the project isnt covered by the MTD plan, which may be just a sightline issue Or we just getting a B&M Wing shuttle that Chessington is getting but instead being a bit bigger
  9. The thing about platform 15 is the fact that due to its location, the maze can be built, maintained and stored in the open with minimal disruption to the day to day workings of the park, only the station and the tunnel has to effect the normal park For example when they built the house nobody realized it had been built till it was experianced. It could do with some work but as a night maze it still has its good points, but it could do with work, its a good base line also effects wise theres relatively little the fire on the train that will never run again the train jumpscare and then its just general audio and maze systems its a deceptively simple maze
  10. The tree cutting could quite easily be nothing, could quite easily be a diseased patch of trees and they have to be removed to stop it spreading/collapsing into other things Though if Thorpe wanted a sure fire KISS project, a RMC Raptor either of the existing American layouts or a new one would probably fit in the Slammer plot or with a little bit of over spill onto paths Yes it would probably have a very poor throughput, but it would be relatively cheap for what public and enthusiast would call a thrilling re ridable attraction and as a medium term stop gap, I take it over them re theming the Inferno maze/ Celeb/Jungle escape maze building again

    2020 Season

    Well that's not the best, now they have to call in the emergency crane crew that is ready for if the ride got stuck. you have to lift a platform to fix that, but all it needs is a little push
  12. Also the 4 locomotives (one from treasure island days) and carriages are probably not in good shape now. They been left in a shed which kept the rain off but not climate controlled or anything, also if they left fluids in the engines it might not be good now due to lack of running and maintenance. I think the last engine that ran was the treasure island engine pushing the platform 15 stuff into place before the rest of the track was ripped up. Thorpe did try to sell the engines but got no buyer (either due to condition or price is unknown), so sadly apart from some of the rails and maybe the coaches, pretty much everything else would need to be replaced. Let alone theres nowhere the track can go now.
  13. The reality is that photo is photo shopped, since from that angle you would in real life be able to see the illusion techniques (mirrors) and the ride mechanism from there
  14. It is sorted? What I was mentioning is its quite a major (and expensive) part of the ride system yet same with the transfer tracks its a effect thats too well hidden/ subtle for it to be noticed by most riders
