Air Concept Art. Never Seen Before.

Air Concept art that I never put on TT. Only photos I'm afraid, they are too big to fit on my scanner. Probably the reason  I never shared before. No such thing as smart phones back then. Lol. http://towerstimes.co.uk/staff/adz/sw51.jpg http://towerstimes.co.uk/staff/adz/sw52.jpg

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Let's be realistic about this whole 'smile/scream to go faster' idea. Although a nice thought, there is nowhere on the trains to display the readings to the riders so will therefore add absolutely nothing to the ride experience. What's the point in altering the ride depending on your face if the ri...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Adrian - it's good to see a member with some sprit and passion! I'm glad to see you view speculation in the way it should be viewed! And I'm right behind you! Just because people think us speculators are wrong and have no evidence doesn't mean we'll be throwing tantrums if we get there and it is ju...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I remember Alton Towers experimenting with this concept of monitoring heart rate and physical reactions a few years ago.  It was reported then that they were working on a ride concept that would react to the riders emotions. Why on earth would these POV's spend all the time to come up with a c...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

This was dismissed as a indicator light when first spotted but is it?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I am not saying the smile if you want to go faster thing is real or not but I'd say the evidence seems to prove it is! Watch all 4 videos on Youtube again but taking in account it could be real. The 2nd video with they guy in a chair been told to not look down takes on a whole new meaning! He is the...

I'm sure it will be all shiny and new with all the whistles  :D But you still need to update in the meantime.

Re: TT History Section

I am fully aware of the new TT's development  :D but you still need to be updating, there is more to Alton Towers than Smiler. Don't let the competition over take you! Not sure if I am correct but isn't it Squiggles running TS's history section? They also seem to be beating you on the meet up's...

TT History Section

I am concerned that with all the attention on Smiler that other areas of the site are been ignored. The Smiler updates are excellent! Better than any other site but while all the excitement builds around Smiler other sites are busy with some excellent history updates! I am not sure where they are ge...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, and I'm probably way off the mark but after reading the mental effects it puts me in mind of 3D cinema effects, for example - the needle that pokes you in the back on It's a Bugs Life and the mice running over you feet on Honey I Shrunk The Kids at Disney.

Re: Water Rides (Lack Of)

This has been the one thing I have wanted Alton Towers to sort out! They are seriously missing a good modern water ride. The Flume is fun but is part of the parks past and needs to go. It takes up a huge area which could accommodate a superb new water ride. I still love The Rapids, there are bigger ...

Is there a CBB topic? I can't find one! I have a FB group supporting Rylan to win! Point me in the right direction if there is a CBB topic please.

Re: The LGBT Topic

Nice to see the TTF gay tradition is alive and well! :-) there was much gay banter when TTF first started, mainly thanks to Shockadelica (Brian) Hope you all watched the program about Gareth Thomas coming out on Channel 5 last night? It was on after CBB. If not look out for the repeat or watch on De...
