Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It is disappointing to see an image of the trains leaked, however, it does look they have been tied into the theme well with lots of detail. It will be nice when the side profile is released, to see if the detail continues all the way around :) If you look to the right of the image that has been le...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I don’t know of anyone who goes to AT who doesn’t have 2-4-1s or a season pass as there’s so many available. So although £30 looks like a severe price decrease (and is really appealing to the GP) it’s more than the cost of a 2-4-1 discounted ticket. Also if this drive visitor numbers then they’re go...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

With all these new ticket machines being installed I hope AT decides to make a large step forward in its pricing of tickets. I think that it may be worth finally reducing the ticket price to around £30 and severely limiting the number of 2-4-1’s that it puts out into the GPs hands. Does anyone think...

It does seem a good idea but personally I think it's a bit too pricey for me :)


If this was £20 I might actually consider buying one as it’s a great novelty gift... but for £50 I would rather pay for park entry for 2 people with 2-4-1s!

Re: Non Rollercoaster Rides

I think every area in the park needs an additional flat ride to be honest. With the removal of Ripsaw and Submission, and the total lack of flats in Dark forest there’s very little to do aside from queuing for the big rides. I used to love being able to jump on the small rides and have a great laugh...

It would be nice to see a resin and print of the actual themeing structure too. I'd also like to see another block of wood with the logo added.


I’d love to see this as a hollow resin with amber lights in the head/shoulders matching the actual structure

I really hope the top of the entrance pillars are connected up to the gas supply :D

Also great look to this already, a little bit more growth and greenery and this thing will look great.

Surely they could finally bring Galactica into Nemesis’ theming by having some relationship to the Nemmy Alien homeworld

Re: Last Game You Played and Your Rating

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - 8/10 Still working my way through his 80hr+ story but thoroughly enjoying the plot so far. Combat begins as an absolute chore, however I’m still having new mechanics evolve 40+hours in and it’s now becoming a great deal of fun. If you like JRPGs then this is certainly a game...

I can’t believe this is what Nemesis used to look like!

I remember it looking like this as a kid but thought it was a rather over active imagination!

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I think it would be close to it, if this did go ahead I think this must be Alton towers first de-theme

It would be nice to see this out through, it would probably be another worlds first to brag about :’)

Re: Dark ride ideas

I would absolutely love a ride very similar to Rock ‘n’ Roller coaster at DLP.

A super intense launched indoor coaster, in the dark, lights, music the works!

There’s nothing really similar in the UK and they could go with a tag line something like “Worlds First Double Launched Indoor Rollercoaster”

Re: SW9

How does the tree height limit work? Some of the suggestions I see seem implausible with the tree limit but I might be mistaken. As a rule of thumb no ride at AT is allowed to be visible above the tree line from outside of the park. A few coasters get away with being marginally over (Rita) due to b...

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

So they do a birthday celebration so to speak, for each coaster, for the year you can best fit into the logo? I can't imagine what year they'd do for Thirteen... I wouldn’t be surprised if they did something on Friday 13th October 2023 as this could be dubbed “Thi13teen Day” obviously a Friday the ...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I’m pretty sure it would be easy enough to do but having the two stations separated so one was “Galactica” and the other being “Air” the only issue would be ensuring that the VR trains always go to the VR port

This was guests could decide wether they want to ride with VR or without

Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

“What ever happened to...” The black hole? Did the original ride get moved to a ride in Germany did I hear at some point? Close, but no cigar! It was relocated to Furuvik in Sweden under the name Rocket. Thank you... next time I’ll make sure I read the “complete guide to past AT rides and where the...

Hopefully this pushes AT to release some form of testing footage that they’ve recorded in order to show the true pace of the ride

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Yikes... That testing video was an unexpected let down. The pacing was always one of my concerns about the attraction (especially seeing the flat turn halfway through the ride) but I was hoping it’d be a bit faster than that! That said, I’m hoping there’s a few factors that might change - temperatu...

Am I right in assuming that this doesn’t currently have trim brakes as well?

I certainly hope it doesn’t!
