    Yes, I don't think it is part of the large theming structure; I think it's a separate, smaller one (like on the plans).

    Yeah, it would be completely overshadowed if it was attached to the theming structure... Unless there was two like a good and bad conscience...

    I really hope Towers announce this soon. Preferably tomorrow. Now that would be nice to end the school term on...

    I love your enthusiasm @Matt N but this is Merlin we are talking about. Might have to wait for the new year dude.

    I'm ever the optimist @shawnoc! I think @DiogoJ42 might agree judging by what he posted in the Chessington thread:

    It's well too early, especially with everyone preoccupied with Christmas and New Year. Plus Merlin will do the usual MAP sale late December.

    Maybe mid January at the earliest I reckon, when it's cold and everyone is miserable and bored.

    Alton have now released Challenge 4:

    I think it's directing to a Snapchat link so I can't give the answer.
    EDIT: Why isn't the video appearing?

    For those that can't view it the answer is "fusing," I believe it's also on Instagram stories :)

    This is definitely hinting towards fire effects... you know, because fire effects have fuses? Ha, ha, ha... no? OK.

    Maybe its hinting at marauders mayhem retheme?

    Though...it probably is just a tiny fire effect ten miles away from the ride area, behind a wall with "DANGER OF DEATH" signs on...

    It's official! Ian Crabbe is running for President in 2020! With his main promise being to build a wall around every new coaster being built! On a semi-serious note, maybe this is their way of concealing the Pagan theming from Mutiny Bay? Certainly wouldn't surprise me judging by their love of scaffolding *cough* Dark Forest *cough*.

    What, with that one wall being Mutiny Bay Donuts, with the rest of the shop on the other side?

    I was only joking @Moley! Sorry if you didn't get that.

    Well at least if you prepare yourself for disappointment you might actually be pleasantly surprised when you ride it!

    As for me, Merlin have already exceeded the expectations i had for this, so personally i don't see any need for negativity at this point. Yes the 'wall' isn't the best they could have done, but its also not the worst :rolleyes:.

    The wall is temporary and will be gone for opening day. It's not as if there are thousands of visitors on park per day at the moment that see it.
