More sw8 stuff is online Team Edit: Now that the full plans for SW8 are online this new thread in the Planning Portal is for all your SW8 discussion! The plans can be seen on the SMDC website. A summary of the plans can be read on TowersStreet News. As stated in the plans, SW8 is due to open at the start of the 2018 season and will be a wooden coaster built by GCI, the manufacturer responsible for the likes of Wodan and Troy. The coaster will be on the site of the forum Flume ride (which will be demolished as part of the development) but not use any of the wooded area that The Flume previously did.
