It's Time For The Wicker Man To Rise...
Wicker Man is a GCI Wooden Coaster, and the first newly built wooden coaster to open in the United Kingdom in 21 years. It was built at a cost of £16,000,000. It features a highest drop of 72.2 ft (22.0 m), and travels it's 2,027.5 ft (618.0 m) length over 3.30 min layout (Including time on break runs and on the lift hill) reaching a max speed of 44 mph (71 km/h).
Having now ridden Wicky 18 times at the time off writing this post, I absolutely love it, and it has grown on me a lot with more rides on it, and it has over-taken my personal favourite coaster at Alton Towers which did use to be Smiler. I love the theming, and the pre-show which also helps build up my love for this coaster. I really hope the UK does get another good wooden rollercoaster by GCI, but feel like Thorpe Park would be the only park that could invest in one.
I am honestly suprised that we didn't already have a topic for this fantastic coaster.
