Re: Selwyn Denstone Hills- RCT3

I was referring to the footers, as it looks like you have used the same positioned footer for all the supports, and the footers look a bit off-centre But dat entrance... Oh right, yeh, ive tried all the different positions but it doesn't seem to fit the support exactly! I reckon it's because the su...

Re: Selwyn Denstone Hills- RCT3

Hey Guys! Sorry for the delay, since i've been at school i've been really busy. A frustrating thing about boarding is that the internet is really slow and most of the websites that i use are blocked. But every now and then they randomly become unblocked! Yay! So now i can continue! Amazing! Assuming...

Re: Selwyn Denstone Hills- RCT3

Re: Thorpe Park 2013 General Discussion

Went to Thorpe yesterday and we got on The Swarm, Storm Surge, Collossus, Saw, Stealth, Nemesis Inferno, Rush, the rapids and The Slammer. It wasn't as busy as I thought it would be on a bank holiday weekend as we got on everything we wanted! Staff were nice and polite, Stealth had broken down all d...

Re: What slide would you like to see in the Waterpark!?

The problem is, we have to consider the area. We cant just choose the biggest and best waterslide in the world and slap it on the water park map.

I think the cycloon ( Link in the post above me) is what they need, its thrilling, but something the whole family can enjoy!

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

It seems the red box is outlining the station building, (behind the ride of course.) The green box is the maintenance building, and the blue seems to be outlining the station platform!  :P

Re: [Idea] X-Sector : The Activation Party

What music do you have in mind exactly? I mean, X-Sector is a secret base. If I imagine the music it would be dramatic, not dance worthy.  :| The idea overall is great though! But following on MrOblivion's post, it cant happen, the Roper's will have a great reason for bringing AT to a difficult...

Re: 2014

I think mutiny bay may have another ride! I thought of this crazy, yet awesome ride idea called 'cannon balls'. Basically... you sit in the cart which have seats with secure locks (like they have on roller coasters), you are in a ball, the bal gets taken upwards on a lift then at the top, there's l...

Re: Main thrill area at Alton Towers.

I've always felt that x sector provides the biggest thrills, purely because f.v is a place where you see young people enjoying themselves as they laugh at random strangers on ripsaw, then have a ride on Air and Blade with their parents, whilst in contrast to this the only thing young people are abl...

Re: Hex Funny Moments

When you're in the room before the actual ride, someone behind me yelled "BUTSCRATCHERS!" It completely ruined the scary experience but it was hilarious!

The Incredibles soundtrack does it for me, it is just so awesome! ;) the Harry Potter theme tune is close behind. Hans Zimmer did an awesome job for the music for Inception!

My opinion about SW7's Model and Manufacturer The park explicitly says it will be based on SAW: The Ride at Thorpe Park and will be the same type (Euro-Fighter) and manufacturer (Gerstlauer).  Its also completely reasonable as the layout resembles the recently opened Takabisha. So its safe to ...

How Busy Will it Be During ERT?

Hey Guys! I will be visiting AT on the 3rd of July and have booked my tickets online. One of the benefits of booking online is the ERT. Every time I go to AT I like to plan my every step (Obssessed Much?) and I would like to know how busy it is during this day at ERT? Is it walk on for every ride th...
