This ride seems to break down all the time, often with riders stuck (usually not for long though).
It doesn't take up a massive amount of space but surely they must be considering a replacement given its age, reliability and being a bit out of place at a family park.
Big question is what you'd put in place.
But the ride is actually surprisingly popular, chessington need at least one ride to keep young thrill seekers, or older people like teenagers and adults that go there, as i'm 19 and still enjoy going there, it's the only ride that goes upside down there... I would struggle to think what else would fit or be appropriate there.
Just send them ripsaw...
and give AT Talocan
I'm not sure whether you're being serious or not, as good as that sounds, but ripsaw isn't exactly in good condition either, that won't be around for much longer so pointless moving it...
I would personally like to see rameses revenge be replaced by one of these... and if alton can't think of anything else to replace ripsaw, then add another one as well (bulk discount) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap8m7S-_VBM
