Re: M&D's

Police Scotland have confirmed 11 casualties through their Facebook page. 2 adults and 9 children being treated at local hospitals however the nature/extent of their injuries is to be confirmed. Seeing how close this park is to me (as in I can see it from my house) it's certainly frightening. The wh...

Re: Oblivion's future

I think maybe some Queueline refresh work is needed, as stated above, it's looking very old and out of care!

I don't see it going anywhere soon, but if interest starts to drop seriously a floorless redesign could bring people back. Would need serious station changes for that though

Re: SW8

I'm assuming ATR must have a list of concepts waiting to be rolled out, so where do you think The Smiler and the incarnation of SW8 we're seeing proposed really lay in the plans? To me, it seems like they were hoping for SW8 as SW6 back in the day, making TH13TEEN SW7. The Air car park concept was h...

I think they're just pre-empting any backlash before any narky comments can be made regarding tastelessness. There are some bizarre minded folk in the world, they like to visit theme parks too, just they tend to cause a ruckus.

Re: SW8

My fear for SW8 is the bad press which will be attempted upon it before construction even really begins. I can just imagine The Mirror headline: "ALTON TOWERS COMMISSIONS NEW DEATH-DEFYING ATTRACTION MERELY TWO YEARS AFTER HORRIFYING SMASH" It will be inevitably regardless of how far back ...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I feel they may install additional CCTV to cover more of the track, especially as it seems to have been implied the current system does not cover the Staffordshire Knot. The trim breaks leading into the Batwing element surely must go. I was under the impression that in the event of an EStop all brea...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

The question I have is are Gerstlauer going to make any announcement about this? I'm sure that they would be able to give some much needed information and piece of mind to the public regarding the safety of the coaster.

Re: The Future of RITA..

Would a backwards launch coaster even be safe? Think about the force which pushes you back into your seat on Rita's launch, then imagine that acting on your back with no head support!

Re: When people mention Alton Towers

I'll second that ^^

I don't understand why people feel the need to just make up baseless lies about coasters to intimidate others. Just because they want to deprive themselves of an amazing experience doesn't mean they should drag others down with them ;)

Re: I'm So Nervous...

The first time I went on it, I was really scared of rollercoasters and everything, but my friends dragged me on. The adrenaline really helped and before I knew it we'd ridden it three times in a row! Obviously, if you don't want to go on it then don't push yourself but it's really a great ride! Plus...

Re: Visiting this weekend. weather?

Hi there,

By the looks of things there's supposed to be heavy rain showers throughout the weekend but always go being optimistic. There was torrential rain forecast the first time I went to the park and we arrived and it was 20 degrees C all day, no rain in sight!

Hope you have a great visit

Re: Ride you have queued up for the longest is?

Still remains that since 2009 the ride I've queued longest for was 190 minutes for Air... I've honestly never known another ride (including The Smiler) which broke down so many times before I actually got on it. Thank god we were staying overnight at the Hotels, we only got on two other rides afterw...

Not too sure if I'm just not as spatially aware as I once was, but doesn't the arrow for the new entrance point right onto the N:ST site? I very much doubt there will be a new entrance implemented any time soon, unless the park implements the use of Woodland Walk greater for hotel guests, transformi...
