Re: If You could bring back one past ride?

If i could i'd bring back Thunder Looper and Corkscrew. Both had amazing impact at Alton Towers and both very popular rides. But because this is asking for one then i'd have to say Corkscrew. Just for the fact that it made Alton towers famous and the fact that it was a very good family thrill coaster!

Re: Which Do You Prefer: Air or Th13teen?

I prefer Th13teen. The drops are more exciting and their is a dark area. so if you was not a roller coaster enthusiast that drop can come to a surprise. Plus it might be more to the fact ive been on Air plenty of times and i am quit bored of it

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Was in the queue for a KMG Freakout and a teenager was saying that the forgot the counter weight that attachs to the top of the ride so it can't go all the way round... Thought it was pretty funny tbh!

Re: Why Don't People Like Rita?

Personally, I think Rita is better then Stealth. Only because it lasts longer then Stealth, has more turns and the launch into the corner is fantastic!

Re: If You could bring back one past ride?

The Corkscrew by far. It was the only roller coaster with a decent history at AT behind it. I still think to this day that it was a great, thriling experience.
