Tidal Wave is now sponsered by Original Source.
I dont think Tidal Wave even needs sponcering, but oh well.

It looks like it'll just be an air type sponsor it isn't proven yet anyway. How come that pic only shows a tiny bit of the map?

I feel the sponser would be a really low key affair. On the q line t.v.s,map,photocards and might get a sponser on the boat I but highly doubt it.
It can't be as big IP leather sponser, could cause some conflict otherwise.
Then again if the sponser help funded the replacment of the effects let it happen I can choose to ignore it.

I know that this may be a bit of topic and a bit of an odd post but what exactly is Open Source is it a shower gel of some description or another bathroom product.

I do hope that this doesn't ruin the ride but still if it brings the magical effects back then I'm happy :D

Original Source is produced by Cussons (Imperial Leather people). They currently produce bathroom products such as shampoo, shower gel, soaps and roll on's. The products are great, I have a bunch of them. They currently stock there items in the hotels at Alton Towers.

Visit there Website here.

Thank you Towersart, I have heard of them and like you mots of my bathroom is plastered in the stuff :lol:

I can't see this working. Correct me if I'm wrong but I always thought that Tidal Wave was in Amity Cove and Amity Cove was themed around a natural Disasters area. This isn't going to fit in oddly.

I don't mind sponsored rides peronally, but why does the ride all of sudden need sponsorship.

How do you know its not going to fit? The ride isn't being themed around it!

For all we know, all it is could be a few "Amity style" advertisments around the area, much like the 'Tame that mame' fake stuff at Stealth.

I think the idea is, that a sponser for the ride will be a disaster therefore fitting with the theme. In the year 2020 the whole of Thorpe, Alton and CWoA will have themed rides.

I think you should wait until you've seen it or at least got any idea of what they are doing before doing "OMG I HAYTE SPONSERSHIP ITZ GAY!" signitures.

Original Source have based their advertising on the product around destructive weather and nature. http://www.visit4info.com/details.cfm?adid=14898

Other than a few logos around the ride area, i don't think it'll be anything major.

What would you rather have? Tidal wave-ducked up by imperiall leather?
lol none lol i predicted your reply before you even said it
