i love blade i don't think it should go if any ride should go in FV i should imagine it would be ripsaw, the blade is a classic and maybe we should replace ripsaw with that vortex it would look amazing with the right theming on it as well

I think that the sign is meant to be like that purely because it is meant to look all spherical and if you look into a glass ball at an object it is often slanted

I still think the new sign should be there

georgiegirl, that would be an ace idea but creating such an atraction would be so difficult, and then with all the rigourous testing that would have to be done it could be quite a few years before it happens

if it was build it would look ace and i would ride it :lol:

i reacon the next ride to get its 10th celebration will be Air, although nemmie was the first attention grabber in the park we can't deny that air kind of did the same thing and still does( it has the 2nd longest que times behind nemmie in the whole park)
