Finally, after months of build-ups, speculation, hype, pictures, videos, and delays, the beast has awoken, and is ready to start correcting it's advocates!!! I personally cannot wait to book a trip to AT to ride this beast, and I will be planning a day to visit very soon!!!

Can I just take this opportunity to thank every single TT member for such an incredible build-up to an equally incredible ride - all the pictures, videos, speculation & numerous slengthly conversations about "the F word" ;) have made keeping up to date with this roller coaster's developments both enjoyable and interesting to read. Hope everyone enjoys the roller coaster, and from reading the build up on here, I cannot wait to read the reviews from people on here after today!

Remember everyone, Smile. Always. #getcorrected

I'm gonna repeat this again as clearly people aren't getting the message

Guys please stop with the poor quality posts!
Things like "Yayy" and "ooo that's cool", are unnecessary, it's why we have a thanks button.
I understand you are all excited, but please keep the topic clear of all the silly posts. Also if you have minor quick questions, please use the ShoutBox at the bottom of the main forum page.

Can we keep this topic for images and news from the site for the rest of the day please? I'm going to start removing any posts that I feel aren't adding to conversation, and I won't have the time to PM people about it. Otherwise this topic is going to be impossible to follow.

If you want to complain, then please do it here - http://forum.towerstimes.co.uk/towerstimes-news-your-views/thoughts-views-of-the-recent-posting-guidelines/ However please be aware that I'm monitoring the forums solo today, so responses will be very slow

Anyone know what the secret weapon is? If you do, post it in spoiler tags and let the people know who can't wait! (Like Me!)

Will try my post on here after it got deleted off the review topic :(

Long time lurker, first time-ish poster.

I won't be visiting AT until August but everything sounds very positive! Looks like I'm in for a treat!

Thanks to everyone that kept us updated through construction and over the 'opening period(!)' Looking forward to reading some reviews to keep me positive during the 4 hour drive!  ;)

Kudos to those in the 180 minute queue!

Yeah, the secret weapon is a 14 looping rollercoaster on the site of the Black Hole in X-Sector. It's just opened today.

Yeah I know that!! But on the press review they said that there is another secret element that has been kept secret right from the start of construction!

Would someone be able to do a description of what happens inside the building in the queue line and on the ride? For those who cannot wait until they visit, thanks in advance

Ah you said secret weapon.

There isn't a 'secret element', the 14 inversions was the secret. The closest to a washing machine you will get is if you concentrate on the marmaliser.
