Re: Alton Towers 2012 in Review

Hex's smoke machines have been working pretty much 100% for a few weeks now.

Re: Efteling: Aquaruna 2012, Hartenhof 2015.

As a fountain show, Aquanura wins.

But Disney Dreams is much more than just a fountain show.

Re: TEA/AECOM Park Attendance 2011

This report is a waste of time, they regularly report different figures than what the parks official release (such as the figures that DLP release in their financial reports)

If towers do projection mapping, lets hope they map it correctly unlike the Wodan queueline :P

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Alton Towers have tried to build an experience which has never been done before, and it didn't work as well as it was planned. They've realised that it didn't come out as expected and have taken steps to rectify the situation. I can't find any fault with that. Any major project would have to be sign...

It's been apparent for a while now that in terms of the actual ride system, Intamin wins.

Re: Test Track Presented by Chevrolet - Autumn 2012

Was never a huge fan of the old theme, thought it felt a bit cheap.

Re: The End.

Nobody gets banned for duplicate accounts really, its never really dealt as harshly as that.

Not really sure why everyone is having a go at tugboat, this kinda topic crops up now and then but people never react as harshly :/

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Hm. You guys are really painting a terrible portrait of this ride.. And some people feel completely the opposite to the majority of the people in this topic. If you haven't been on it yet, don't let everyone else's opinions ruin a experience which you might enjoy :) I loved Sub-Terra and would be r...

I think the drop is more forceful that Thirteen's is.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

You can still hear the Forbidden Valley soundtrack from the majority of the Sub-Terra queueline.

It wouldn't really fit for the attraction to have a proper soundtrack, the Phalanx announcements work better than music to add to the story/ambience of the attraction.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

If you are going on the attraction for the drop alone you will be disappointed.

The point of the attraction is that it's an overall experience with the drop adding to that experience.

Re: Ticket Offers (Including "The Sun" Promotion) Discussion

Remember guys that we can't allow anyone to discuss swaping their tickets on the forum as I believe the offer's T&Cs state that the tickets are non-transferable.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

It's probably worth mentioning that the floor was moving in the entrance lifts today, in responce to Dave's review. So things are already working better than at the weekend. 4) The exit lift just needs more, get some loud bangs and darkness in there as well as smoke.... make it last longer. I though...

I'm not convinced anything will be changed for tomorrow tbh. But if anyone can confirm that there have been changes tomorrow morning I'll head down to towers in the afternoon.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

The ride today was the same as how it was at the weekend, I believe.

I don't think any changes you all want to see are easy so things will take time.

I won't be saying my opinion in this topic :)

Driving School and Hex also have high-viz, with Hex obviously being for theming reasons.
