Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Guys, no one mentioning the two things that look like track supports right behind Darren holding absolutely nothing? The first one is under his elbow and the second one is positioned to the right. They are painted brown.

Re: Oblivion's future

Of all the rides, nemesis and oblivion are suffering the most. Nemesis gets away with the queue and paint but the ride cars are in awful condition, a lot of the seat material is torn etc... And paint worn off. Air on the other hand looks really good still. It's restraints, paint, queue and station a...

Re: Downtime 2015

Anyone know whats wrong with ripsaw? There are pictures of it covered in scaffolding and tarpaulings - hope its nothing too serious :/ I'm not a mechanic or staff member but they're working on the arm; the circular part that rotates the carriage. They were working on it when we left the park yester...

Rita is down according to Ride Times
It opened at 11.

Rapids is currently closed as someone requires medical attention. Sub-terra closed, ripsaw & enterprise too.

Re: Downtime 2015

6 rides down all day today. Sub-Terra, Duel, Enterprise, Smiler (obviously), Ripsaw and Charlie and the chocolate factory. Pretty poor.

Re: Oblivion's future

If anything it's queue line and station needs some work. It's looking terribly old. The section under the station where the drink and snack machines are is seriously rusting. It's brand is fine, it just needs some love.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Whilst the Sky interviewer was rude and unprofessional the questions asked were fair. Clearly Merlin are under the impression that procedures weren't followed or a particularly procedure followed under x condition (valleys car) failed. Staff training and technical upgrades were mentioned and Merlins...

Re: Alton Towers - Offers, Vouchers and Discounts

I managed to get a moon suite for 50% off for 1 day. Every other day was empty and could only use the sun 30% off. Don't know if that helps.

Re: THE VOID - Virtual Reality Attractions

Can you point me to the reviews? From what I read this project is currently vapourware. The marketing and video is great but likely only to encourage investors to get this project going so we might see something in the future.

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

Yes just read it, and it does appear that nothing special was mentioned about the indoor section and they did say the Marmalising Elements was not turned on, could this mean they are more than just a visual peice on the Marmaliser Legs? I would think so... This reported did seem to also sugest that...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Looking at the trains  there seems to be big gap between each car, could the fins on the lift be used to rotate the seats to face backwards?. (Sits back and waits for all the abuse for making a stupid comment) http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc205/robjlowe/P1150896_zpsb399e4dd.jpg The train...
