Project WC16 - New for 2016

Recommended Posts

The countdown is when the next clue arrives.

I don't think it is. There's 2 clues coming in October, and it says the 3rd one is end of October (so I'm guessing the 2nd is beginning of the month). The countdown timer ends on 25th October at 11PM, which will be around the time of the 3rd clue.

New teaser video!

Interesting to note that the beginning with the cogs is very similar to the current Doctor Who opening titles.  Still, it's likely just been put there to throw people off the scent of what it actually is.

The clocks go back on the 24th October, so we gain an hour. If the countdown is static, it will finish at 10pm, if it's tied to the clock (somehow) it'll finish at midnight. I don't really know what I'm saying but the clock change will affect that countdown somehow!

My brain has imploded trying to work it out. Probably not that relevant but still kind of fun.

I'm fairly convinced this wont have an IP.  I'm not saying it wont be sponsored by a well known brand, but I think we will see a unique and fresh dark ride that is not related to anything we currently know.  Anyone old enough to remember the 5th Dimension will know that IP's are not necessary for a successful dark ride!!

Googling 19:30 (the time the watch stops on) and Mind Control brings up...

"Mind control: a revealing summary of three landmark books on government mind ... Dr. Cameron began conducting unethical, unscientific, and inhumane brainwashing experiments in the 1930's".

Tenuous link but thought I'd throw it in!

The whole thing is implying it's something to do with time which would relate to doctor who. It's been in the works a long time and changes to a dark ride are far harder to achieve. So for a show that changes so often I think that this ride will either focus on Madame vastra and strax or not have an IP at all.

Looking back at the trademarked names Merlin filed, they were 'Chronicles of London' and 'Automatons' I believe. I find it strange how Automatons was trademarked as that is a word used for clockwork animatronics, which coincidentally is what I'll be focusing on for my final year at uni. Anyway, with these trademarks being brought back up, maybe the story is human brains are taken and put into Victorian automatons. Chronicles of London would be interesting, if it is confirmed to be the name, as with the automaton word being brought up makes it feel like the ride will have a story based on past events which have been brought back to life.

An interesting animation found within the code of mindswanted.co.uk

This is amazing! Good find! Is that a silhouette of *something* I'm guessing some sort of person, in the centre of the GIF - like someone lurching forward?

Looks like the background of the entire page has now changed, from the eye to the cog thing I posted just a few minutes ago. Weird that the web dev guy is working so late  :blink:

^And here we see a classic example of looking too hard to see something that isn't there. ;)
 
Neat little update, should keep us geeks ticking along (did you clock onto what I did there?) for the next couple of months, whilst keeping the general public entertained too.  The about section is particularly interesting...
 

A journey that will wrench you from your cosy everyday existence into a warped new reality. We’ll take you to a place where nothing is ever as it seems and nobody who visits will ever see things the same way again.

An experience designed to challenge your perceptions and mean you’ll never look just once again.

Keep your eyes and mind open, don’t take all you see on appearances alone and you could be one of the first to experience The Island’s newest attraction in 2016

 
I've cracked the first clue and look forward to seeing next month's clue:

I was about to post that lol 

 

 

from all this to me it seems less and less likely to be an IP

I feel it's best not to say.  :)

 

Mostly because I'm not entirely certain how I did it myself (I have an idea, but not too sure), but also to keep the fun alive.

I was looking in the source code and other things in there, and the word Victoriana keeps popping up. I'll paste what I am talking about below, which can be found near the end of the assets/css/main.css page.

I did a quick search on google and it isn't anything to do with coding from what I am aware of, but this pops up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoriana. The popular culture section is interesting, but could this possibly be the name of the ride?
