I'd guess not seeing as they've not announced any licensing agreement. If they tried to launch a high-profile ride with a similar name and theming reminiscent in any way of the film, they'd be taken straight to court.

You know, as soon as I read the initially leaked info about Thirteen, I loved the name for the coaster, but just hoped that they didn't do the naff thing by replacing some letters with a 1 and a 3 as I remember the movie title already did that and it's been done on other titles too like Se7en... Oh well!

Incidentally, the film is quite standard fayre, so I'm hoping it won't have any link.

Anyway, it's a very minor gripe. I'm now really excited about this coaster and how it's going to completely reshape the area of the park.
And I can't remember if I've posted it before, but over the past few months, I'm beginning to think that it was Rita that was always intended to be Corkscrew's replacement (family orientated thrill ride) while they kept Corky until they found a much scarier concept to actually go in that area.

I also like the fact that this latest development has got me thinking less of what's happening inside the building and more about how good the coaster's going to look and how the rest of the ride will feel, racing through the woods.

You honestly want that to be permanent? Sure, it's good for promotional purposes, but it looks pretty 'meh'. I'd rather there was something genuinely scary in the woods. smile.gif

theres this feeling i have that hex and thirteen may be pulled together. connected in someway, and the whole area of ugland and fountain square merged together because of this...

im intrigued. but i dont think they can pull it off without creating something cheesy...

apart from the distance between the two rides the biggest problem is Rita stuck right in the middle of them. And what about Rita's chicken and ribs? Will that also be renamed for the new season....

For integrity's sake, it certainly should be, and I "hope" that it will be rethemed..

Loving the theming, it looks brill. Good effort from Merlin. They should change the name of Rita and i hope there is a re-theme of that. I dont care if its not linked with Hex, however, Rita Needs to change.
