Re: Work experience at Chessington WOA

I've got a place at Towers for work experience for this year. So, there's a possibility that Chessington may do it too.

Just send an email to their head of Human Resources asking about it.

Re: Would Oblivion be the same without the underground section?

Absolutely not. The hole is what makes the whole ride, as intimidating and scary as it is, more so than the actual drop. The noise of the car falling down the drop and plunging into the dark empty abyss, used to terrify me as a child. And still does to this to do today (not as much though, I have to...

Re: Poll: How often do you visit Alton Towers per year?

Oooh, probably about 85+ for me, I try and pop every weekend and in multiple times during school holidays.

Well, that's the advantage of living in the village and being an owner of a MAP.

Re: Ride Downtime Thread 2012

I think this season has got to be the worst I've seen for ride downtime.. Every time I have been on park something has been closed or broken. Nemesis, surprisingly has had her fair share of breakdowns this year. Oblivion has gotten worse, I was on park on Thursday and a friend and I got stuck on the...

Re: What is your favourite ride in the park? and why?

Attraction - Nemesis: Sub Terra - Because I love the whole feel of the experience. The whole attraction is superb. My favorite dark ride on park, I rate it higher than Hex!

Rollercoaster - Nemesis - Do I really have to explain? It's sexy! That's all there is to it!

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Does anyone actually know for sure weather it's gonna be a Gerstlauer Eurofighter. I was just doing some research and have found that when Alton were planning the Dark Forest they had ideas for a tower launch coaster by Zierer. Could that be what we are getting for SW7? Well we know it's going to b...
