    @TheMan Nothing compares to your first ride, or the first ride you take with your child.
    I am just waiting to see if there will ever be a 3 generations riding together in my family.

    Maybe actually plant some trees there to make it an actual "forest"?

    ;)

    I like it, although I don't know why the 'tentacles' are being painted rusty![​IMG]

    Looks good, I dread to think what the GP will do when the see rusty roller coaster track, I can already see the Sun's headline on the 20th.

    I don't think they get what the original theme was meant to be.

    Hey guys, Merlin doesn't get it!

    Isn't that just to match the fleshy exoskeleton of the station repaint?

    I'd actually say it looks pretty darn good coming from Merlin! Gotta be the most detailed track paint in the world at this rate! And considering we no longer have the blood rivers, the red colour in the track might go somewhere towards compensating for it.

    Plus the track is meant to be the creature, the re-paint doesn't look rusted, it looks blood-stained and organic from what I can see!

    Well chuffed with this re-paint!

    :)

    Also, the photos might not do it justice compared with seeing it in the flesh. I'm excited to get back and see all the work that's been done for myself, but I'm pleased with what we've seen so far.

    Given that's not the best of photos and the lighting is all over the place, it's hard to tell how it looks exactly.

    Can appreciate the detailing going into it, but not sure...

    It does look like they've tried to rust it

    They really are going for detail aren't they! That's seriously detailed... Hopefully it will all look great when it's fully finished.

    Frankly I couldn't care less if it's not what the theme used to be. It looks great.

    That looks absolute gash! A rusty organic creature. Now I've seen it all. It was better without the repaint. Someone please remind why Merlin are in this business.

    Yo Merlin! Do you even theme park, bro?

    Isn't the track supposed to be the thing containing the monster (in which case rust makes sense)? That's at least the interpretation given by the Sub Terra preshow video...
