Re: Alton Towers Ipod Touch Protective Case Idea?

These can be produced for pence - working in the phone trade you could knock up a design in a day or two, get them made for under £3 each if you buy 1000 (not a lot really) and sell it at £9.99, cheaper than most on the high street anyway!

Re: New Tip Bucket in Criba Creek

Interesting, maybe Towers had to put it on there now, it is surely an inexpensive item which can be changed if the deal runs out?

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

The baggage room is manned. You hand over your bag, and collect it once off the ride. I presume you get a ticket with a number on which you have to hand back to get your belongings. On Stealth you get a rubber wristband with a number on it, presume it will be the same. Its a very good system, glad ...

Both train types are available up to 32 passengers per train (8 coaches 4 passengers per coach) The renderings below show a preview of the trains to be installed on new projects coming in 2010!
