Rita: Should AT should of took more time with it?

Rita Queen of Speed is a popular ride at Alton Towers, but some people say that the building of the ride was rushed. It took less that a year to finish Rita, and alot of people say this shows. What do you think? Should they of took more time?

Re: Ride Themes - YOUR CHOICE

Yea, your ideas are good, but I'm not sure about your idea for the Rita themeing. It could be themed around a forest race (as sw6 looks like it will be themed around a forest) so that would be cool.

Re: The Future of the Blackhole Tent

A B and M dark ride would be cool in the tent! :) Anyway, someone said on youtube that after Sw6, a new ride will be expected to arrive!

The highest G's on a coaster is Superman Ultimate Flight at Six Flags over Gorgia, which pulls 6.7 G's! :shock:

Re: Oblivion

When I entered 'X - Sector', I suddenly felt scared, and not happy. Just as we passed the area sign, I saw it. Oblivion. The carriage dropped as soon as we entered X sector. What a welcome present. This was the only ride that I'd gone on that I didn't want to go on. My brother, Mum, and Dad were fin...

Re: Bring Back - The Nemesis Story

I love listening to the story on the internet, and it would be even better if it was back in the queue. The Nemesis story is a must!

Are school days at Alton Towers busy?

I'm going to Alton Towers in july with my school, and I want to get chance to ride as much coasters as I'm able to fit into my day. It's on a school day, but I don't know if Alton Towers will be busy or not. It would be great to know beforehand so I could plan things before I arrive. :)

Oblivion: Vertical?

Alot of websites say that the drop on Oblivion is 87 deegres. Does the track go vertical when it enters the tunnel, and if not, why did Alton Towers not make it vertical? Cheers.

Re: Nemesis Noise!

the locals are living next to a major theme park, what do they expect? either cope with it or move house! plus, the noise creates an atmostphere. Without the noise, nemesis wouldn't be the the same.

Re: B&M

I think alton towers choose altot of B&M coasters because they are most likley to impress the customers! They are smooth, they look amazing, and can be made quiter if needed to. :D But Alton Towers have seemed to be moving across to Intamin a bit more recently. I'm not saying they are bad, it's ...
