I still doubt that truamatizer is going to show up. They have a new, large space to build on which doesn't appear too often. We know they want the next biggest coaster, and they wouldn't waste all that space ona ride thats been seen again and again, i expect something much bigger than truamatizer.

Interesting, they bought the zoo land not long ago didn't they? Slight waste of money there.

Shame, I hope they don't scrap cyclone... is it possible this may be relocated to PBB, instead of traumatizer?

Doubtfull, but you never know ;)

I think SPL gave out pumpkins last year/ year before?

I think special offers are as far as they go.

Blackpool doesn't theme their coasters? Of course they do! Although it's not much, the PMBO has the Pepsi can, tying in with the sponsor. Then we have the "futuristic" station (yes it's not brilliant but it is still thought out to be that way). We have other coasters at Blackpool which are themed a...

Worst themed? Go to blackpool. Why do rides need to be themed around soft drinks? Doesnt it annoy you? It certainly does me. Like Pepsi max im sorry but how does this ride even compare to Pepsi? Sorry, but are you stupid? Pepsi is not it's "theme" it's just a sponser. Blackpool do not theme their r...

I prefer PBB aswell, the flats (bling and spin doctor) are the best i've ridden, and PMBO is my favorite ride and i'd rate it much higher than anything in AT.

No airtime on the hills? pah.

(post based on first page - didn't notice the other 3 :P )

I think it's a good idea, I don't see any of this as offensive and i can't understand why anyone has any real reason to object to it. It's only one day.

The Cherry Picker has been used to clean the tent. Its looking really nice at the moment, which i think proves its staying, why clean it otherwise. Yesterday, the whole exit side of the tent (opposite oblivions tunnel) was open and peeled back, but i could see no work being done, i guess thats beca...

I still don't understand what a cherrypicker is needed for on the removal. The purpose of a cherry picker is to elevate people to heights so they can do things like change bulbs, inspect things, clean things etc without needing loads of scaffolding. (One has previously been used by Oblivion to chan...

An indoor attraction, dark ride kind of thing, possibly with a decent sized flat inside might be good there, the building could be sound proofed too avoid too much noise.

Although, after just adding CACF i doubt it will happen

How big are the trees around alton anyway?

I'm sure a nice rustic themed one would fit in somewhere, shame about height restrictions.

The ride has been very unreliable since the Alton Towers engineers have done whatever to it.

Seems to have caught a bit of Rita-itus off them. Typical.


Jealousy maybe :P

i like merry england, it's a nice area for the bottom of the park, where you can have food or ride gentle rides. I think people are just wanting too much now.

The atlantis theme would be horrible IMO, it just wouldn't fit the area at all, you forget the kind of climate england has.

i think a half submerged loop would be interesting, as if your fighting to get out.
