Re: Th13teen trimmed yet again?

I'm sure I read somewhere that the trims are added because the computers were getting their timing sequences wrong when the vehicles were arriving faster then expected?

Thought this was an interesting little coaster. A very tight layout with a couple of intense looking parts. Can't find it on RCDB.

Re: What is your favourite ride in the park? and why?

I'm going to be different and say Oblivion. It is more of a personal thing for me, as my first ride on Blivvy infamously involved my Dad's hat falling back onto another guests face. I loved the thrill and I can still remember the fear strike through me as I first descended into Oblivion. Aside from...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I'm more than certain there will be a launch coming out of the station then up the track, The launch must be pretty slow though considering it will have to be at rolling speed as it goes down the first drop in order for it to be duelling.

Re: SkyRide info

3 Minute ride at most, If your an athletic runner you can beat it... and its sometimes more fun!


I always walk as the SkyRide is unreliable whenever I visit so the choice is down to you.

Re: Current Offers, Vouchers, Deals ETC...

Anyone know the bounce back prices for this year? Wondering whether to buy a 2 day ticket online or buy the one and get the second day while at the towers.

Nah, the above wasn't aimed directly at you, but a few people who have failed to heed the warnings from Merlin. I had a media site, but as soon as Merlin contacted TT, I knew I'd best take my site down and I dont dislike Merlin because of it. After all, they own the music! Sent from my X10i using T...

Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

I'm going on a marketing trip in just under a month at Alton Towers. During the Q&A Session I shall mention this to them on how they plan to market themselves as a money grabbing corporation which doesn't take into consideration the well being and implications on their guests.

Re: New Cable-Car for London: "Emirates Air Line"

I think the government may have been scammed with a price like that... Poma are expensive but not that expensive! Those supports look like they cost a few million on there own, Forget the luxuries and just build us a transport system!

Re: Could Rita be Launched... BACKWARDS???

Differen't systems I believe. Rita Uses a catchcar system which is attatched at the front, it would cost them alot to retrofit the car's with another catch on the ride cars. And you know Merlin, they aren't doing anything like that anytime soon! Where as they both use LSM... Which will be on SW7 I t...
