You do know they are moving BH track back into the tent. And it looks exactly like Gerstlauer track.

Yeah but if you've just said "OMG i spotted Gerstlauer track near Black Hole" your gonna want evidence that this is happening before you start believing and taking it on board. As it could be just someone making it up for all you know. I remember i started rumours of Thunderlooper being mo...

No excuse for talking to an administrator in that manner. Rumours are just that - rumours - and there's nothing wrong with a bit of healthy speculation, never did anyone any harm. In future, show a bit of respect and don't be so rude. :) In future ridiculous rumours shouldn't start without evidence...

Gerstlauer track is exactly similar to Schwarzkopf (minus the tri-track) . Because they bought most of the shares of Schwarzkopf, hence why then own their old factory. I guess you can't read that can you? I said excluding the tri-track. As Schwarzkopf never made that. Like i've said, there is not p...

Right, this is some silly rumour not backed up by any evidence of a train or track. Gerstlauer track is exactly similar to Schwarzkopf (minus the tri-track). Because they bought most of the shares of Schwarzkopf, hence why then own their old factory. Why would Alton Towers invest in a roller coaster...

Ok done a few tests and calculations. At current I think Stealth pulls approx. 2.5G at the tophat section. If this was increased to 100mph it would pull around 4G, which would admitedly be very uncomfortable. During the horizontal to vertical secton you woul probably pull around 9G at 100mph which ...

Right your all a bunch of idiots to think that the ride can be launched at 100mph, you'd die. The ride already pulls around -0.3-6G's on the top hat, if you increased it by 20mph to 100mph you get a 50mph speed loss on the way up. so you'd go over that top hat at around 40-55mph so that would pull a...

I'd love to download the Original Oblivion advert with the 30 second one and the 10 second one, not the weird one with Phantom Of The Opera on it.

Space Ranger

I saw this ride on ATA, does anyone remember the ride? As i heard it was built for a few months as it was put up without planning permission and it was very tall and poked above the tree line.
