Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

As much as we'd all love loads of fancy new things on duel, we have to remember that they're already paying for a new roller coaster this year so we probably won't be seeing anything big happening this year. They were able to do hex last year because the only other thing they were really doing was a...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

That is some serious banking!!!! Could the train be getting some extra speed from the launched lift hill apart from that which is needed to get it to the top?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Distantsic I messed with source code and found wood3 too.

These runes are definitely not nothing burrito. Thy are the same 8 all over the page. If they didn't matter they would be more randomly placed, not the exact same 8 in the exact same order.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The fact they trademarked the name is no guarantee that it will be used. Alton Towers trademarked the name Oblivion 8 years before it was used. they also own the names 'Port Discovery', 'speed fiend' and 'godess of speed'.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The timetables aren't great though. From my hometown there is no train that can get you there early enough so you have to go the day before.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Sorry just read abooth202's post. The code definitely says Be Chosen. I doubt that's the ride name though.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

It's likely that the new maze will be related to this. It may also give us a word.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I don't actually mind how it looks at the moment without the water because the walls look like a Mayan temple or something but I would like to see them back for the ambience in the surrounding area.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

So as 2 or 3 people have suggested, lets move on! They've taken the age restriction off of Congo River Rapids. I'm not sure how I feel about this because there are a lot of stupid kids who will mess about. At least they waited until after school trip season.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

PLEASE DON'T SHOUT AT ME COUNT-VONDUEL I'M TRYING TO PROVE YOU RIGHT! Aaaaaanyway, Alton Towers have said that this is going to be 'the most frightening scarefest ever' so its unlikely the final scaremaze will be anything family friendly. They've also confirmed the Alton Ancestors. That's good for f...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

In all fairness count voundel didn't say anything bad about the vr thing. He's merely saying that it could hold clues. Where you're getting 'vendetta' from I'm not sure.

I love the backwards launch on Th13teen. It really is an incredible coaster despite being built for the family market.

Re: How many visits per year?

My sister doesn't go on anything, my dad's not keen and my mum thinks she's getting too old for it so I haven't been in 4 years! I'd get the train with friends but the schedule doesn't work. You'd have to go the day before and leave the day after.
