    Universal's Epic Universe Announced! New Orlando Resort!

    I'm wondering if the light trails on the dueling coaster are just to highlight the ride on the concept art or if we're possibly looking at a KCL lighting package like HangTime?

    Universal's Epic Universe Announced! New Orlando Resort!

    Universal also have the trademark to "Epic Universe" - based on the imagery and wording in that teaser, perhaps that's what they've gone with.

    Thorpe Park | Derren Brown's Ghost Train | VR Attraction

    Re: WC16 | Thorpe Park | New ??? for 2016 From the sound of it, the train carriage seems to be the big motion-based part of it - I'm expecting a sort of suspended simulator where you board from the second level and put on the VR goggles (gas masks?). From there, the whole train car could shake...

    Thorpe Park | Derren Brown's Ghost Train | VR Attraction

    Re: Thorpe Park construction? Victorian theme that's supposed to be "time sensitive"? It'll be Assassins Creed. The new game "Victory" is supposedly set in Victorian London, it's most certainly an active IP and was one of the options on the survey Thorpe sent out a while back. Since the game...

    "Now Showing"

    Interstellar - Not Christopher Nolan's best, but far from his worst. I think the plot could have done with fleshing out a bit more in some areas and could have had better flow, but it was still hugely impressive. If you can see it in 70mm IMAX, do it - you won't regret it. Some of the visuals...
