Re: SW8

I think they should create an out and back high speed coaster with lots of airtime. I know it's been drawn in the past through the valley but that would be pretty good, but in reality I can see the next one being a replacement for the log flume. World's first inverting water ride?

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

towers won't be loosing any money by giving people tickets to come again another day for free they will be making more money, as the majority will come again and spend money on, food and drink (and car park) for a second day!

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I know it's exciting to ride the latest alton towers ride but to plan anything before the ride is officially 100% open you should expect to be dissappointed, i'd rather wait a month and not queue for 6 hours,  I dont pay for towers tickets and even I have not made any plans to go yet I only liv...

Re: If You could bring back one past ride?

I used to love the graviton lol.  I think thunder looper was great too although I was quite young when I went on it, I think if they combined thunder looper with rita (I know it would never happen) it would make for a much better ride

Re: Roper update

can't wait for the ropers to loose the case and need to sell the house in alton to pay court costs, only to not be able to find a buyer, then to add insult to injury alton towers offer to buy it for half market value!

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I wish people would stop complaining about the delays. You have to remember Alton towers is unique in that to build almost anything you have to dig down into the ground, then support the walls of the excavation and make it permanent with cement, all of which can't be done in open season or when temp...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Strange that the 4th picture in the update doesn't have the part of the track coming out of the pit censored and it appears there's nothing there to hide. Maybe these covered up areas are to throw us off the scent.

Re: Traffic issues at AT and how they can be solved.
