Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion Part 2

I would laugh if Alton have had no problems and Are trying to get us worked up for no reason. Well that's what we can hope. Iwas getting all excited about knowing what happens in the indoor bit but with the problems, which I hope are easily fixed, I think the opening day will definately be pushed ba...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion Part 2

FANTASTIC POST, There is just one problem i find, there are many drop towers in the US and i am sure that its over 0.5secs and it snt that scary? That's why Brendan Walker says it's only scary for the half a second, any longer than that and fear is replaced with excitement. And remember if it is a ...

Re: Nemesis: Station Audio/Announcements

The only announcement I remember hearing in the station was a loud female voice that just said 'Nemesis'.

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

Do we know when these photos were taken because if it was a while ago the bare metal may be covered and work may even have started on rita. I for one am now excited about this ride, I tried not to be, but looking at the theming and care put in to the ride, well bring on March!

Re: Snow Watch 2009/2010

School for me has been closed for the past three days which is nice but I hope its open on tuesday as I have a biology exam. However, there is still a thick layer of snow in my garden, and with more heavy snow due sun/mon, who knows what will happen.

Re: Quick Question about RCT3 Custom Scenery

Does anyone have any links to download custom scenery as every time I search for it I can't find anywhere to download them. If you can that would be great!

Re: Clean up Oblivion!

I agree with pretty much everyone that the entire area needs a re-paint. Also, slightly off topic but, I would love to see them get rid of enterprise and move submission somewhere else in the park and in their place put an entirely new and unique flat ride. I would like to see a swing like rush but ...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

Wow that must be a big dessert! Seriously though all this talk of I know this, no you don't, yes I do, has made this forum nearly impossible to read. Until Alton towers have officialy stated something, not just rumours of age restrictions, anything anyone says, for me anyway, is just hearsay or spec...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

Well with the name, theming and rumours of waivers and age limits I think we can finally put to bed the family coaster talk(even if we had guessed this wasn't going to be family orientated). I can't wait to try this 'physchoaster'.

Re: 1st Closed Season Topic: "taps"!

I voted no because for the past few visits I didn't need the toilet so can't comment on their state now. However the last time I remember the taps were fine and the whole bathroom in fact was spotless.

Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

Well when they said they had it wrapped I didn't think it would be in a huge sheet with secret weapon plastered all over it. Looks quite big though.

Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

Wow some of those pictures do show that the station building is big. I didn't believe when people said it looked bigger in the flesh (or should that be plywood ) but I can see it now.

Re: How many times have you been to AT in 2009?

I'm ashamed with myself. 2009 so far has been the only year I have not visited Alton Towers. Normally I visit twice or more a year so to not have gone this year makes me feel sad :cry:

Re: Rita - What will you miss?

I'll miss sitting in her at night during scarefest, a light rain falling, hearing the catch car lock on then the 'Go Go Go' and the rush it would bring, so mainly yes I also will miss 'Go Go Go'

Re: Oblivion - The Future Ride...

Whilst I am happy with oblivion as it is, sometime in the future I would like to see them change the track layout. First after the tunnel have a stall turn into the opposite direction followed by another steep drop underground. Then you could burst through the black hole tent into a barrow roll and ...
