    I hope to god we have a '#WhatsInTheShed' moment, because let's face it, it's :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing fab.

    This photo shows how really compact the site is, I'm getting a bit more excited about this coaster now, I won't lie.

    I did think it would look good from ground level, and I think that photo does look really good. When the trees are fuller though, I reckon it'll pop even more. The constant barrage of aerial photos have just made everything look pretty flat and dull, so I'm glad we're starting to see it from the ground now.

    Those near misses though...
    I'm not bothered that this coaster is small tbh. I'm just imagining it as more of a wooden mega-lite than a small family coaster.

    You're such a dickhead.

    Honestly love this picture. The structure of the wickerman blends in so well with the track. I'm not expecting a world beater but I do think it's going to be a good solid addition to the park.

    Yeah, this has suddenly leapt up in my estimations. This could look really good once it's all polished off. I do hope that there are decent viewpoints of this coaster from around the paths and stuff - it'll really add to the atmosphere of the area.

    In all seriousness though, this is the best non-concept art picture I've seen of the ride so far - I'm almost impressed with the theming. Well done to the photographer for finding an angle this thing looks half-decent from :)

    Just because others might have been mean to you, you should never treat them that way in return. That's not just for here, do this all throughout your life. :)

    ^This is why I love these forums, stuff like this don't happen on TPR or pretty much anywhere on the internet anymore.
    Regarding Wicker Man, I think the layout is pretty solid, the theming goes beyond my expectations so for now it's just waiting for a pov to be released to see how it rides.

    I'm still pinching myself that we finally have a woodie at Alton Towers after decades of waiting and 2 disappointing false starts (cross-valley woodie and coaster corner woodie).

    Thanks for the great pictures and great banter, happy Monday everyone!
