That rendering has me very excited. This is very far ahead but does anyone ,who has been to previous opening days for the secret weapons, have any tips for getting one of the first trains? I would love to, however I'm not sure how things work on opening days for rides.
I managed to get on The Swarm's second public train by waiting outside the park's entrance an hour before opening, I think we were the second or third group waiting outside. Didn't manage first train as we were with somebody without a MAP so they took longer to pass through the turnstiles. In any event, getting outside the park an hour or half an hour before it opens will make it quite likely for you to get on one of the first few public trains.
Also, fantastic work by TheCodeMaster there on the recreation, although it may not be a world class woodie, it's certainly something that has been missing from Alton Tower's lineup since it opened so am more than happy to see the layout it has. Here's hoping that the theming extends beyond the single theming element, although looking at the station this does look to be the case!
