    I think wickie will be great fun.

    Part of me wants it to prove everybody wrong. It would be utterly hilarious if this turns out to be the best coaster in the world when we actually ride it wiping the floor with Icon, Steel Vengeance, even Nemmie.

    It won't, but you can't judge a ride by it's look, height, speed, layout... Hell Nemmie has been proving this since 1994.

    How funny would it be if this turned out to be the ultimate rollercoaster in the whole world.

    Of course if it did, I would have a whole load of hats to eat, and I would really do it.

    There would be so much humble pie on here (but way more from the miserable gets on coaster force).

    I can just imagine a shellshocked PeteB coming of the coaster screaming "OMG, that was amazing, I've never had such an incredible ride (insert double entendres now).

    Reckon I'm safe though.

    No problem... All Wickie has to do is top the following Mitch Hawker poll

    Although come to think of it Buster Douglas was a 42 to 1 shot to beat Mike Tyson.

    GULP!

    It’s good to hear positive initial reviews - has anyone in gear actually ridden it yet

    Unfortunately, I know of no one who has ridden it, but remain optimistic that this will be a lot better than the consensus to date.

    A range of people. As you can imagine, this sort of stuff is reasonably sensitive so I can't reel off positions!

    I'm liking the sudden surge of positivity surrounding the ride as of late. It's quite reassuring to know that, if it is indeed true that people have ridden the attraction, the ride has been very well received thus far. I still have my reservations about the ride, who doesn't, but as I've said many times I really feel like the theming and overall quality of the build will contribute towards something truly special for the resort that could even result in the park as a whole seeing some improvements regarding the way in which it is run over the next few seasons. Call me an optimist, but i'll grab what I can get.

    If this ride ends up riding amazing then we'll see something like White Lightning but with stunning special effects and theming.

    Yeah, I'd say it definitely has the potential to be World Class if it ends up the case, It will really round out Alton Towers ride lineup nicely! :D

    This one has to be my favourite by far, Just because the sheep (Yes, I know it is a Ram but a Ram is a male sheep) looks beautiful!

    In other news, theming has apparently been added to the concrete wall by where the coaster exits the station! So we don't need to have the next Air tunnel debate! Yay!

    I am excited for this ride can't wait to ride it. Could it be open for the services weekend (3rd and 4th of March)?

    Really like those pictures however due to the opening hours the only time your get the chance to ride it in the dark is Halloween which kinda sucks.
