Re: SW9

Launch coasters aren't gimmicks in any way. In practical terms, they are perfectly suited to a park like Alton Towers which cannot have a high lift hill in most areas. We need a thrill ride for SW9, it has been nearly 6 years since the last one. An Intamin blitz in Forbidden Valley would do the job...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

Morgan raises some very valid points, I won't deny it. When you actually sit and think about it, it has many flaws. The outdoor track is a bit dull and the queue line is a bit long and a bit boring, and the bag hold now holds up operations even more, but there is something about this coaster that is...

Re: SW9

I hope they avoid the launch coaster route. Yes, I can see the argument for it, especially if you take Rita existing out of the equation, but I think it would be cool if the park kept with the simple idea, like Wicker Man. By simple I mean old school. Wicker Man was such a hit for the park that it w...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

I like Rita and all her flaws. It certainly isn't the best coaster on park, of the most thrilling, or the smoothest, but I just find it fun. I always try to ride it whenever I visit the park as I enjoy it.

Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

GUTTED

I absolutely adore this attraction because it’s so camp and cheesy and, well, a little bit crap. If they are going to put something in its place I have two requests:

A. Make sure it fits with The Jungle theme of the area that the space it is in!

B. Don’t put Vulcan Peak in!

Hey everyone. I thought I would give you some information. I know I said there would be 10 rounds, but due to the fact I got hit quite hard by a cold, i've only been able to write 8 rounds. So there will now be 8 rounds over 2 days. And as i'm feeling nice, I thought I would share you the rounds tha...

Re: The Next Themed Area/Area Refurb

CCL is the most likely to next undergo work. Its been a while since it received any real love, so it would be nice to see the area get a revamp. But after that, I feel, much to my hatred of saying this, will be Katanga Canyon. I adore the area to bits, but its look old and needs so new life brought ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Such a great read. You don’t really realise how much happens in a year until you look back at it. Let’s hope the park continues this positive journey it’s been on this year!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

I did eat there once and was disappointed by the food. I sort of like the area as it is as it has a nice transition from Jungle to Old Town, but I can see them using the space to add more games stalls or an arcade. A new ride would be awesome though.

I believe Ride Sims will be returning soon with Ride Sims 2, so might be worth keeping an eye out for that :)
