If I’m correct, they removed it due to the red water infecting the water supply of villages around the area.

Re: Drayton Manor

Went to Drayton yesterday for the first time in 4 years, and it’s safe to say a lot has changed.  First, I reluctantly rode Apocalypse – due to my fear of drop towers – and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed it. It was fast and very forceful.  Next up was Accelarator, for the first ti...

The voice won’t come back. It was removed due to noise complaints by locals.

Re: Scarefest

Perhaps the reason they’re being built so early is that they might be planning to open some in the summer, like Thorpe.

Haven't heard anyone who hasn't said that it's the best coaster in the UK after riding.

Theme Park Worldwide did so on their Instagram. 
It sounds amazing. I hope to get there this summer. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Re: Dark ride ideas

To be honest, when I first saw The Smiler, I thought the exact same thing! The compact layout would provide for some great near misses that you couldn’t see coming, and they could have some more effects like on the Rock n’ Rollercoaster at Disney Paris. Only problem is that the GP would say it would...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

To be honest, I much prefer Galactica than AIR theming-wise, so I’m with Jack on this one. I haven’t actually used the VR yet, and from the reviews it’s been getting, I don’t plan on it either.

Re: Songs that remind you of rides

Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd for some reason reminds me of all the rides at AT and TP. Maybe because that was the 1st song I heard on the way back!

Project Zer0 - Specu1ation

A video has appeared on a random account on YouTube of a supposed “Project zer0” and , according to TheJackSilkstone, could be something to do with the the ‘0?’ signs that have been appearing next to Fright Nights attractions for the past 2 years. Discuss!

2. Galactica
3. Oblivion
4. Smiler
5. Rita
6. Th13teen
7. Spinball Whizzer
8. Runaway Mine Train
9. Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure

EDIT: There you go AO.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Keep in mind that Merlin recently dropped out of the FTSE 100, so they will be trying to save money. Nevertheless, this was where I discovered my love of rollercoasters, so it is sad to see what it’s going through.
