I would like to add that my dislike for the ride does not include the soundtrack. :P
Life is a roller coaster. You can either scream every time you hit a bump or you can throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it.

If Oblivion wasn't underground it would actually look very high.
Here is a pic of a exact mirrored replica dive mashie in Tiwan.
It puts into perspective how well Alton Towers did to get this coaster into a park with restrictive planning permission.
I actually think the planning restrictions have made the park better. Nemesis is incredible in its little quarry!!!

X sector flat rides

Fri May 19, 2017 8:27 pm

The X-Sector is perfect with a few flat rides as it fills the area and totally fits the theming of the area. Submission was removed which is terrible !And there is only one flat ride in the X sector now !
It needs more flat rides especially with the park only having 2 flat rides left!

Thanks Lewis ;)

Twirling Toadstool, Frog Hopper, Galopers Carousel, Enterprise, Heave Ho, Marauder's Mayhem and Blade are flat rides. And that's not including all the flat rides in Cebeebies Land! Alton Towers have a surprising number of flat rides, it's just the majority of them are for childeren.
X-Sector has done alright without another thrill flat until now. Another flat ride and the area could get a bit too crowded. It always feels a bit crowded in X-Sector.

The area never felt crowded when you had Black Hole, Oblivion and Submission all in the area. It actually felt full of life and the way a theme park should feel. Whilst the majority of X Sector doesn't need a refurbishment in my option, I do feel it does need another smaller flat ride, similar in size to Submission. It would do wonders for the area.

Can anyone tell me what the X-Sector theme is supposed to be?

It is based on a top secret government research facility, later adopted by the Ministry of Joy. Each ride is an experiment, although the theme has been played down in recent years.

I think a Topple Tower or Tourbillon would work well. The Tourbillon especially looks very scientific and industrial. I'm just not too sure about the height.

A Tourbillon would work well I guess, but I think they might struggle to add a Topple Tower.
