Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

With IMAscore releasing a CD for Thorpe Park Audio, it will be interesting to see if they do anything similar with Alton Towers Resort music from the composer. Personally, I think they will wait a year, because I think we could see a few changes to some rides soundtracks for 2018. I could see them d...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

It is either the angle of the picture or that is one steep Immelmann inversion! It looks pretty crazy!

With SW8 testing, here is a little throwback photo to when it was in construction.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I would have thought that such a big group as ECC would have had some inside knowledge either from Merlin or GCI themselves.

Gosh does anyone think the Big Dipper needs a coat of paint because it looks very old and rotting compared to Icon and even Infusion!

Re: X:\ No Way Out

Hopefully it will be a themed corridor that just builds to the anticipation before boarding. I am not sure about the dark theme of this ride however on the whole I am looking forward to the project. Will it be better than Air's retheme however?

Re: Last ride you have been on

Shockwave at dusk. It wasn't too bad of a ride I must say, but there is one awful kink similar to the one on The Smiler's however this one is just before you go up the loop.

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Robert, I really hope this is their strategy too. Surely they cannot be adding more hotels without keeping the Theme Parks in proportion to them?

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

I also love the drop on Oblivion and I find the pop of airtime before hitting the brakes very satisfying!  Its joint second with Nemesis in terms of Big Six rankings in my opinion. Having said that, it is the roughest B&M coaster I have done. It isn't terribly rough but there is a fair share of ...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

Rita is one of those rides that it I forget how good it is. Although it isn't anywhere near my favourite coaster, I must say it is an enjoyable ride. The rides I have had on it have only given a rattle and it is pretty bearable. The launch and airtime makes it for me. Any Intamin Cable Launch Coaste...
