    I’m glad that people are more positive now than originally. I will still reserve judgement until I get chance to experience it myself but I must say this has led to a more enjoyable read of the forum recently (excusing obvious posts) seeing interest build.

    Does no one think the whole story line and even ride relates to "The Ritual" film that was released last year? Not that it's a negative thing but both seem VERY close related.

    Doubt it can pull off an IP at this point!

    Won't stop the theater guys from Rick rolling us on the break run though...

    I'm excited to see the reviews flow in on 17th March! I'm personally expecting a good, solid family ride, but I'm not making any judgements until I step off the ride and into the gift shop.

    I'd rather await the reviews a few weeks after it opens, when people have settled down about it being the latest thing that makes sliced bread a thing of the past...

    Some of the responses on Thirteen and Smiler changed drastically over the first few weeks...

    Don't worry.

    You can rely on some of us.

    I agree, opening day reviews in some cases are likely to be extremes one way or another. I am confident that Wicker Man will evolve over time as well, Wodan is so much better now than when it first opened! Wooden coasters always need time to bed in.

    But guys, come on.

    Swarm is better than Nemesis.

    It's not even the whole "IT'S THE BEST THING EVAR!" responses; Thirteen was labelled utter turd by some when it first opened and yet is a solid (if unsubstantial and slightly confused) family addition...

    I think I was probably one of the few people at Taron's opening who didn't think it the second coming either :eek:

    Wash your mouth out right now.

    It what was is it better? It's slower, less intense, has less inversions and although it's very immersive it's still not quite as immersive as Nemmy.

    Just a little hint to what he's saying ;). But anyway, this is a WM topic, so back to it :p

    From the photos i have seen of the theming, it looks good.
    I can not wait to ride it. As it a new ride experience for AT.
    Maybe it will be an experience i will love, hate or be indifferent to. Only time will tell

    Towers have posted on their Instagram story to keep an eye on Facebook this afternoon as ‘something is coming’. I would include a picture but I’ve not got a clue how.

    I'm expecting an official opening date announcement, with leaks of staff on the ride and it looking like its more than ready.

    with the start of the season only a couple of weeks away, it seems the only 'big' thing I can think of...

    If your posting it is then it’s going to be the TV ad!

    It's opening March 17th! I'm sure it could open tomorrow, if the park were too. This is the polar opposite to The Smiler's schedule.

    Wicker Man will be open for the corporate buyout days in the coming weeks prior to the park's official opening. This will not be confirmed prior, however.
