Earlier over in the Nemesis thread, I had an interesting thought about Galactica that I thought might be worthy of discussion: https://towersstreet.com/talk/threa...osed-for-retracking.5260/page-157#post-394227
My thought was that with Galactica’s VR (the pivotal reason for the space retheme) now being a thing of the past and the ride being shown to look somewhat worse for wear towards the end of 2022, I did wonder whether Galactica might receive a retheme or any kind of work to go alongside the Nemesis retrack.
Forbidden Valley will be in the limelight again in 2024 with Nemesis reopening, and based on their past form, I’d be surprised if Merlin didn’t take the opportunity to do some work to the rest of Forbidden Valley. I wouldn’t necessarily be surprised if this did include some form of Galactica retheme to fit in with the new story of Nemesis. Merlin has form for retheming existing rides to fit in with new attractions (for instance, Rita did receive a light retheme to fit into Dark Forest), and if the work was thrown in alongside the Nemesis retrack project, it would negate the issue of a Galactica retheme not being marketable (which would be an issue if the project were standalone).
What do you guys think? I moved my tangent over here to try and keep the Nemesis thread on-topic.
