Though It's exciting to finally hear that the ride is Derren brown, I'm still disappointed. Why can't they make their own theme? Saying that, it might not be a ride about him, but just a ride that he's helped create (I'm hoping it's the latter). We still don't actually know what the ride is about!

I'm hoping this ride will be 'directed' (don't know what other word to use to describe it) by him. It's his ideas and input and he has a massive part in it, more like a 'Derren Brown Presents' rather than Derren Brown the Ride. I wouldn't mind either, though, as the blogpost TPM just put up definitely sounds good!

Also if this is the park's biggest investment, it would add fact to the rumoured £30,000,000 budget - can't say if it will be worth the money, but my gut instinct tells me the money could be much better spent on a major coaster and several new flats.

Is the tied up lips significant? Would some sort of effect meaning you (at least think) you can't shout/speak be possible?

 

They match the linked people in the photo of the actors on the bridge and the photo of his coffee he tweeted. Don't know what it's all about though!

 

5 lines of string tying his mouth, 5 people linked arms and the same in the coffee:

Well Derren Brown for me was highly expected, the dots from events recent and past seemed to connect quite well.

Whilst I'm not one that's a massive fan of IP's (bar movie themed parks), I'm quite excited to see how his one develops and though Derren Brown will be a leading contributer to the project, I'm still hoping it will be an original ride with original storyline on top of being highly immersive experience. This probably means though we won't get an IMA score soundtrack then :(.

The 13 minute ride duration could be either a good thing or bad thing, I just hope the throughput is good (needs to be at least 1000) as dark rides can go two ways with throughputs.

on the Instagram post they say "we've had to result to extreme measures to stop Derren sharing too many secrets"

Just saw some more pics released this morning posted on Facebook. They're of Derren Brown sitting with a Brain in a jar, sitting with a skull in a jar and possibly drawing something while looking at the brain in a jar.

A 13 minute experience, not ride. I'd be very surprised to see a ride lasting that long, I'd think this time would include any pre-show, walk through or whatever other gubbins is going to go on in there...
