Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

The trouble is that Alton have been hyping this as the next Nemesis / Oblivion


As far as I'm aware, Alton have not once marketed th13teen as the next nemesis or oblivion. They have however marketed it as a completely new experience, and surely its lived up to that? :)

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

I think that the people who are judging this ride really need to ride first before making a decision.

Re: February Half Term 2010

jomo1993 , there's not a chance in the world that towers would EVER close rides just to save cash. i too worked on the park last season on rides, and the technical staff try their best to keep everything running perfectly.

Re: Rude staff!?!?!?

Yeah we got shouted at on oblivion because apparently we didn't move quick enough to get on the ride and cause we weren't properly told which queue to stand in...Wasn't too happy to be honest [-X I think thats a bit of an unfair comment.

im not gunna miss anything about it!
although i loved rita how it was, it was just pretty much the standard theme for launch coasters around the world...

hopefully we'll see something a bit more unique and original and go back to what alton towers do best with their rides?

Re: Clean up Oblivion!

i love the x-sector! although i agree that it needs a bit of a repaint and sprucing up. I dont think it needs a new theme... maybe if the oblivion queuelines and videos were updated and renewed it'd give it a bit of something? not to mention a repaint.. keep enterprise, that still pulls queues, but ...
