    The content is reasonable, but he's an ugly bugger and shouts too much. ;)

    Fair play to the lad, puts the graft in and always puts quantity if not always quality into his content.

    Not for me though, all a bit too cringe.

    Fair, bits are a bit cringe. Nice to have on in the background though, he clearly works hard on it too.

    His vids are a guilty pleasure for me. I seriously can't stand him yet I kinda enjoy watching them. Such a weird moment when he was checking my ticket when I first got into Alton Towers.

    I kinda like his videos, bit cringe in places, but his got a bit of charisma, and he does these travel blogs where he tells you how to get to a park aboard, which train which stop etc which is actually really helpful.. I think he's just very passionate about theme parks as much as we all are here, but just shows its in a slightly different way

    The same conversation literally happened on the SW8 thread on TowersStreet and that lead to TheMossMachine being born... :p It's all a bit of deja vu to me! The only reason I subscribe to Shawn is so I can watch his SW8 and Icon construction updates.

    Hi, Im relatively new on this forum but I went to Alton Towers last week so feel partly qualified to comment :)

    I think its a bit of a shame that the Flume has gone to make way for this ride as I'm not sure the rapids cuts it anymore as a decent water ride. The pathway joining the rapids area to the Mutiny Bay area, which was a bit annoying, but I presume was necessary for carrying out construction work on SW8! Im quite excited about this new ride but I just hope it isn't too tame and aimed at families, from a selfish perspective.

    Looking forward to seeing the developments and maybe riding SW8 next year!

    Far better than a certain other three-letter acronym sharing two letters.

    Weird project, there's track up but it looks like the groundwork is still a total mess, I'm sure GCI know what they're doing but still, weird.

    So this is not how you build a Wickerman... Could this be supports for Rockwork? And could Towers be throwing a decoy theme for SW8?

    Remember when the SW7 banners had double helix motif? And what we got was... something.
    Maybe decoy theme is plausible. We expect evil forest number n and we get dragons instead.
