Re: The Warehouse Ride

I enjoy Duel and after 6 times in 3 days because of my coaster-phobic brother, I really got into it. However, whilst you never really wait in them, the q lines are bland and have a really old feeling to them and It would be cool to see things like objects mysteriously moving like the rocking horse t...

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

Is anyone else thinking this will primarily turn into In the night Garden Land??? I'm 15 so I don't know many of the new shows since I was from the age of Twennies, Bob and Teletubbies but apart from all of the classics, there doesn't seem to be many NEW shows that are known extremely well nationall...

Re: The Smiler

Reviews from 30 and 31th October 2013 On my first visit to Alton Towers in two years, I managed to ride 'The Smiler' twice in two days, the second of which (today) I managed the second car of the day. I don't see any problems with jerks/ bumps in the track and the black cushion pads are very comfort...

Re: height restrictions

Strange of Alton towers. Most theme parks are very strict on height restrictions and the staff surely should of seen her. 25cm (10 inches) could be for the intensity if the ride or because of the way the over-the-shoulder restrains and seats work.

Still, you gotta love Air ;)

Re: Nemmy's 20th Birthday

I think the tentacles could provide a good near-miss element and make it more intense. A fireworks celebration will probably happen. Personally, I think a video in the station of the Nemesis legend would be cool. A bit like The Lord of Darkness on Oblivion.

Best ride in the park. Long live Nemmy!!

Re: 2014 Family Developments: General Discussion

Nintendo Land would be amazing and have loads of appeal. Towers would need to get a long term contract though. Instead of Squirrel Nutty, why not ride Yoshi? Mario karts instead of the tractors would be EPIC! Even turn Berry Bish Bash into Luigi's Haunted mansion or Bowser's Castle? And a kiddy coas...

Re: Which water ride will be removed first?

Flume. Sadly. Would love a re-theme but  basically would end up with pirates. Unoriginal and already used in Legoland and all over the world. It'll probs be replaced by either a 'Journey to Atlantis' style pirate flume or a huge fan-please water coaster.

R.I.P. Quacking ducks :(

Re: The Future of RITA..

I love Rita as a ride. But I have a feeling it will be long gone EVEN BEFORE Nemmy and Oblivion (personally my 2 fav attractions. Basically these are my thoughts: 1) It's not unique enough. It's not a cherished Secret weapon and it's only thrill is the launch at the start. Adding a loop or a few rol...

Went to Chessie in April. Now ya mention it, Dragon's Fury was much smoother and probably better than spinball.

Yes! Theme parks don't usually have them but I think it would be wicked if the Towers had one.
Ice Age water ride would make sense completely and would expand the IP in the park.

Re: Scarefest 2012

It's a great idea especially because the outdoor q line and graveyard are never used. Reoving them would free up the space. However, I'd make it a little less intense. Don't have the zombies RIGHT near you but close by. If not, major panic could occur. Awesome tie-in wih the old storyline. :)

Re: What would you want at towers ??

An update to the Flume so everyone will shut the hell up about removing it. No!  :evil: Also an Adventure/Storybook Land crossover. Both areas need some big changes.

Yes, I think the ride's in Japan. Of course, it's a tunnel. But wouldn't it be AWESOME if it did go underwater! :D

Re: Thorpe Park 2013: Possible Ride Discussion

I don't think any 4-D rides will be making their way to Thorpe in 2015. Unless it was their plan from the start, they wouldn't start planning a large 4-D coaste for 2 1/2 years' time

Re: Thorpe Park 2013: Possible Ride Discussion

I've never been on a 4-D coaster (simply because they're aren't many around at the mo) but the only one I know of and one of he most prolific is X2 at Six Flags. I agree it looks a lot like The Swarm and anyway it couldn't be added to the park until 2015 at the very, very earliest. But give 5-10 yea...
