Exclusive Aerial Photos - Closed Season - 10/01/2015

Sat Jan 10, 2015 6:47 pm

Hello Everyone!

Tonight I share the final piece from my reconnaissance mission: a look at the closed season developments - exclusively for TT Forum members! Please refrain from linking these outside this forum. This is third and final update from Alton Towers following the CBeebies Expansion and new Enchanted Village development updates.

Out.

Great photos! Really do hope they are doing a major refurb for Extraordinary Golf, it looks hideous.

Great photos MI7. :)

But why does it look like part of the forest is on fire in one of the photos? :lol

Some very interesting stuff here, well done MI7!

Looks like work going on in the Valley behind Ripsaw, looks promising.
Ripsaw is obviously staying for another season which I'm pleased about.

Genuine question, is Enterprise taken completely apart every year??

Doesn't look like any major work is being carried out on The Smiler, unless it's already complete.

And perhaps the most disappointing, no repaint on Nemesis. If they don't do anything, that is really poor on AT behalf.

I can't believe Rita is receiving more TLC for her 10th Birthday than Nemesis did for her 20th or 21st

I imagine that it's just part of Rita's standard winter maintenance programme.

I agree tbh- you all know how bad Rita is for staying open, its probably to keep it running properly throughout the next season

I would hardly think jet washing her track is part of her standard winter maintenance, nor would it help keep it open throughout the year. Washing the track would be for cosmetic reasons, which may be because it's her 10th this year.

When a ride gets dirty, the park will clean it. Rita is under a lot of tall tries so naturally gets a build-up of green gunk on it.

Ah yeah, thats a fair point. In hindsight I remember it having a weird vauegly green tint, id assumed it was part of the theming (being next to 13)

The highest points of Rita's track are painted green as opposed to red in order to make it blend in with the trees in the area.

Wait they were green? I always presumed they were meant to be grey ;)

I was more thinking about the red section of track where it does have a green tint there too usually (I think, maybe it was just me)

Why is the rounded marmaliser screen on? Maybe because they're fixing the broken pixels? ;)

Probably something to do with closed season maintenance/testing.
