Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

The red track is Dive Machine track and is going to China. The yellow track is that of an inverter or a sit down. Neither colour is suitable for Alton Towers. The pics show a date on the track as 5 May 2009 The Happy Valley B&M was cancelled months ago. I don't think this track is for Alton eit...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

If Leroy is saying they're leaving the style that they 'borrowed' from Intamin to start using a totally new design without any outside help, we could be in for a pretty poor ride, they can't leave the track design that founded their company, it's just wrong...and it's business suicide![/quote] I dou...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

I don't post on this forum very regularly, but I do read it, and this topic has been very very interesting. However, I fail to understand why some poeple are adament it won't be a thrill ride if it is not a B&M. Personally, looking at the plans with the theme they plan to implement, I don't fee...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

I am going to say this again since my comment would appear to be over looked! The submitted blueprints which officially HAVE TO BE 100% accurate show that the ride has a track styling close to intamin but with the third rail removed, if anyone can find out which companys create this kind of tracks ...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

I think the quote 'riders will have to brace themselves in an upright position' is a possible clue.
Could it mean a stand up type coaster?.

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

May I be the first to ask - who is the ride manufacturer? Walter Bolliger and Claude Mabillard will be manufacturing the new ride. The design will be an experimental design for them, as their new ride model has two-seats-per-row trains and track layouts similar to Intamin AG Mega-Lites. There is a ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

i think John wardley was in the making of the bond film with special effects aswell as illusions and so on. If he has any say in the design of the outer shell of the ride such as themeing which im guessing he will do it should be pritty damn good. And its definitely something to get excited about a...
