Re: Something I made Today.

Ah, Cool. I like to see anything derived from the Towers and have made some expressions myself  8)
I hope thats clear - what I like is the way its an actual piece of art inspired by Alton Towers rather than something thats just a copy of whats there (though much is very good).

Re: Random ideas

Dissapearing Track Illusion I'll start by mentioning the main problem with this - The vibrations of the coaster. This is why this vertical drop you see here, would probably be best slowed to crawl but even then I just don't know about this. http://i1165.photobucket.com/albums/q596/matthew_davids_de...

I dont think Im getting any email from this site anymore

Re: Alton Towers Brand New Second Theme Park?

Excellent idea, But i have some issue's with it. 1.) Rumor has it that Alton has a whole forest that could be potential for land for the theme park. Not using that would mean having to waste everything hogging 1 little space which could be used for something else. Sku, don't you realise by now - ev...

Re: Alton Towers remove "The mills"

Basically 'The Mills' are accommodation for Alton Towers employees, and they are located in a small town called Leek. They used to be textile mills before being converted a few years ago (hence the name :P) and as of this year they are no longer being run by Towers. You can still stay there but it ...

Re: Alton Towers remove "The mills"

Could you elaborate on what that is cause to me
Mill = grinding facility
Leek= vegetable

so basically I'm thinking of a very weird and big vegetable that digests staff members.  :D

Re: Alton Towers Brand New Second Theme Park?

Not wanting to shoot your idea down, but I think you're overestimating how big that plot of land is. After you've built your three coasters, there wouldn't be enough room for anything else. That's not to say I don't like the idea, but it would be on a much smaller scale, and would prob become a yea...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-terra (contains spoilers)

This has been on my mind a while: I'm not sure this ride smells right! At the moment it seems to smell of urine (much like saw) and while I think urine might be present I think there might be more of acrid an shi**y smell...And then something thats alien mixed in with that. I don't know why but when...

Re: Wicked Witches Haunt/Phantom Phantasia review/why it didn't work for me

Yeah I know, in many ways it was great but I just wanted to make a point of why as a kid I didn't think it was as good as Fifth Dimension and Terror Tomb just for the sake of my own ideas and anyone else who cares read my articles. Which (on a side note) I do feel must contain some insight - I rode ...

Re: Wicked Witches Haunt/Phantom Phantasia review/why it didn't work for me

Actually that is very true about Duel! Most of the gags are 1-direction movements so that makes me think what else did Haunted House/Duel have over wicked witches haunt? and Im starting to realise some other things -The figures smile a lot more and their faces are very expressive. Its funny right? -...

Phantom Phantasia / Wicked Witches Haunt

This ride had some fantastic theming but the overall atmosphere was kind of like a museum. Looking at this video: WbtftJXs0Ww I would have loved this ride today – I’ve made posts here about trying to capture a historical museum vibe but seeing this video and remember how this was my least favourite ...

Re: Alton Towers Dreams: How Obsessed Are You?

I was walking with ABPA (a floating device that a bit like Weebo from flubber) during closed season. I could just walk anywhere as the park was empty of everyone including staff. I was walked about behind the scenes of rides, then i would jump onto the ride and ABPA would interface with the rides a...

Re: Say Thanks Button

just 1 thing: It seems like people are thanking me for everyones posts. It says "1 member thanks you for this post" and While I would love to accept this undeserved glory, It is simply against my nature. :P
