Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

This video has just been posted on the Alton Towers Youtube Page (Marketing Stunt) :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj2nw22MwLw&feature=g-u-u I was hoping for some Scarezone footage, as I'm yet to ride 2.0, but it offers very little in footage at all, and mainly focuses on a bunch of people, dr...

Re: Anyone up for 6th/7th June?

I don't think I've ever met you before, or even seen you on the Forum, but I'm certainly up for the 6th June if that's okay? I haven't been to the Towers in a good few months, and I think a visit is due. :)

Re: Alton Towers Recruitment 2012 Season

I'm really interested in applying for a Summer Holiday job at Alton Towers as I leave school in a matter of days, but I'm struggling on finding someone to contact about it. Will there be job applications popping up in the coming weeks/months or do I have to contact them through Email/Phone about thi...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

If this is true, then we should get excited. This is what Projection Mapping can look like if done well :-

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Great news about the time lapse. It would definitely bring up the anticipation for the coasters opening.

I hope it'll be live, but wont that be a little bit too hard to maintain? I'm not sure of the technical details though.

Re: Quick Questions 2012

With a clubcard MAP voucher, do you exchange the voucher for a ticket at a ticket booth, then hand in that ticket at the AP office/box office? Thanks  :) I do this every year, and that's exactly what you do. Just hand in your voucher at the ticket booth, then you'll get an entrance pass which ...

What tweaks did you notice? There was rumours that ABC were on park yesterday doing yet more improvements. Good to see that they're still trying to rectify their mistakes and improve the attraction! :)

Is there still Burger King in cloud cuckoo land by the skyride entrance, or has it been replaced? Yep, it's certainly still there. The only food outlet that's been replaced this year is KFC in X-Sector which has been changed to Fried Chicken Co. We have strong suspicions that over the next few seas...

Also saw these construction boards and got a little too excited, hopefully soon enough they will be plastered with the first piece of marketing for SW7? Hopefully it will be soon!

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

After riding this morning I can confirm that some changes have taken place, which did overall improve the ride experience, but what did let me down an awful lot is that neither the leg ticklers or the back pokers were working on both my rides today. Which disappointed me. I guess the next step is to...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

I noticed they've installed a TV in the batching area - not sure what it does yet. Think it's a new preshow. Just had this confirmed to me. It's basically a short video explaining everything a little more, so effectively, a new preshow. Will be riding tomorrow, so I'll see if it actually adds anyth...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

5 new effects and a new scenery set-piece are to be added to Sub-Terra after ride close today, with Alton trying their hardest to get every single effect up and running by Saturday at the latest. This is what I've heard from a source of mine, so take it as you wish.

This is great news nonetheless. :D

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Well the park T&Cs clearly state that they can close anytning whenever they want / need to and there's nothing we can do about it. And that is fair enough really. Better to close it and get it working than have it running with no effects on. Exactly this. I'm pretty sure that the attraction is ...

I've just heard a few ramblings on Facebook that Alton will be closing Sub-Terra for a week and trying to improve it as much as possible. And apparently, this starts tomorrow when ABC are on-park. I wonder whether this will go ahead? Great news if it does though. Shows that they ARE listening to wha...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

In regards to ABC being on park, they may well be responsible for the effects as they are built into the seating - thus are part of the ride system? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk This could very well be it, as the Back Pokers were only working in the morning and the Leg Ticklers not at all dur...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Oh and just a question about the lift: They don't move but you end up underground still? Is that via stairs or something. That's funny. You don't actually move at all in the lifts, they're just simulators. The only time you go underground is during the drop sequence. In the first and second lifts i...

Re: Scarefest 2012

Alton are definitely looking into 'Sub-Terra Live' for Scarefest as of a few days ago. That is all I can say.

I'm not sure how it'd work, or how it'd be any different to how the attraction is now. But it's being thought through over the next coming months.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Does anyone one know if the effects are working today? Nope, the majority of the effects are not operating today. I honestly doubt we'll ever see all the effects working flawlessly in unison anytime soon or even in the future. Just look at Hex and Duel, but that's anther argument for another time. ...
