Interesting leaflet. I won't point out the obvious, everyone can look at the copy themselves, but southwest of the crossed gravestone there appears to be a werewolf or dog of some form.
Also, to add to the speculation, TOTT: What lies within, and now a search to find out 'what lies within' - possible link?

To me, it looks more like a wolf-human hybrid.

Chimera

Now that'd be a good name for the ride.

And wasnt that mentioned before by the people behind the vids which people said were fanboy ones? ph34r.gif wink.gif And wasnt thoes same people slammed by a few people just because their videos looked "too unprofessional to be towers". How would you like your hat? Baked or shallow fried with salt and pepper? wink.gif tongue.gif biggrin.gif

Exactly my point. Obviously I knew that this linked nicely to the Alton Hound story from a couple of months ago, or else wouldn't have bothered mentioning it. But wasn't it decided that the theme wasn't behind this frankly overused legend?

I dont't think it was ever really considered. I thought the idea of using this legend was part of a clever hoax by a TTF member who tried to fool both ATA and TTF. huh.gif

They were good, though.

I don't mind being taken in by a hoax if it's a good one and nobody gets hurt.

That's all well and good, but what about the poor guy who got hit over the head! wink.gif

They really should start some kind of virals, even if they are for the more 'nerdy' among us. With Thorpe being my local, I was hooked on their Saw ones... Well, forgetting their lack of staying power ("we'll bring you one on the 13th of every month until it opens... or we run out of ideas") or the blatant change in theme / tie-in (For the love! What has a scratched moneybox got to do with Saw?) But I digress...

They are cheap and easy to produce and circulate, and would give us so much to talk about our fingers would bleed! Bring it on!

Hi, I'm new here by the way...

ps - i will try to keep it on topic in future

Imagine a misty moor, night falls and a werewolf appears infront of you. A crystal is then put into a device and the werewolf dissapears... Torchwood Estate anyone

Note: Anyone remember rumours of something to do with Jazzland and the towers will instantly get that refrence along with what i have refered to wink.gif

no i doubt it because the called oblivion secret weapon 4 and air secret weapon 5 and they havent kept those names

if this new ride is themed on a dark forest, then they would have to re theme all of ug land, meaning that Rita would still look out of place with its drag racing theme. if they re theme rita aswell then it wont seem right having a dark gothic theme, with twisting branches and leafs, then a sign saying Rita:Queen of Speed. also they would probably re paint rita's track to the green that is used on the highest points of it already, then they would have to repaint the cars, the station, and get rid of thunder rock rallly radio. its going to be a big project

how about fitting the ride behind Duel, where the old rides are kept thats a bit of land. Or is it used for ride storage where the old revamped rides are placed. I think Ugland would be a great place because i did see some construction over at the park when i was queueing for Rita.

Talking about an Idea of a tree, has anyone thought SW6 will be an Intamin split coaster? I am sure these have never been seen other than in RCT3. Its possible and would fit around the theme. Maybe, you have to circle the tree to escape from a trap which happens in the enclosed section of the ride?
