Looking at past videos and pictures of Thunder Looper, I really wanted to go on it. Because both my parents have been going to Alton Towers every year since 1988 (and have taken me every year since I was born), and they have said that this is the ride they miss the most.
The fact that I was told it was one of the best rides at Alton really made me want to go on it, because most of my favorite rides are my friends/families favorites too.
Obviously I was way too young to remember what it was like when I saw it back in 1996, I believe, but apart from that, I would love to have gone on it, going backwards in a loop, which I've never done before.
Also, I would love to have done The Beast too.
