Lots, but a select few include:

The Haunted House (pre duel)
Thunder Looper
The Beast
Doom and Sons
The Park Railway
The Alpine Bobsleds
The 4 Man Bob

And i could have ridden both Toyland Tours and The Black Hole, but damn 10 year old me wanted to go to Flamingoland and The Bullet, which i must have gone on 100 times that season.

Thunder Looper. I was too tiny to ride it, then didn't have the bottle. And the year I had the bottle to ride it, it was gone. So long Thunder Looper.

I wish I had ridden submission.
Before I first went to towers my freind told me how awsome submission was. I had to ride it. I went to towers, headed straight for the x-sector. But it was gone :cry:

This is just my point of view here, but all you missed by not going on Submission was having your thighs destroyed and blood all rushing into your head. Nothing more. I'm really not sorry to see it go.

Thunder loop, Corkscrew and black hole. Wish they would have an area dedicated to old rides, maybe re-build them :lol

I kinda wish I'd been on Submission. I know it was really painful, but it was an Alton Towers Flat, which is a rarity nowadays.

Also Corkscrew.

I'd have really liked to do the Alton mini-railway actually. I think the route through Haunted Hollow is really nice and I'm always looking for evidence that is no longer there aha, apart from the tunnels that have been converted. There's something quite beautiful and sad about a closed railway, even if it became redundant with the monorail and skyride.
