Re: The Future of The Flume

Dark Rides are just generally more exciting than outdoor rides and can create a more eeire atmosphere than outdoor ones. I'm just wishing that AT would make a ride like valhalla!

Re: Merlin to take over Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

There isn't any space really unless they remove a ride or an attraction

Re: Merlin to take over Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

The Ice and fire rooms, the music, the drops, the theming - everything makes it awesome! Thinking about it yeah, there isn't much space in the steeplechase area, I just think the drops are tame and the speeds low. If the lift hills were bigger and it was faster; yes they would have to make the seats...

Re: The Future of The Flume

there are water slides that invert but I dont think there are any water coasters that do, so this could be cool for AT to look into as it gives them a worlds first and replaces the flume with a similar but upgraded ride. The only problem is that it takes away the family asppect of the ride and there...

Re: The Future of The Flume

I would love a ride like Valhalla (the best water ride IMO) except a buliding would need to be built and that would cost a lot of money and it may be unsightly and therefore I dont think this would happen. Therefore I think a pirate themed water coaster with maybe an inversion (if it is possible) co...

Re: Merlin to take over Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

Yeah Valhalla is probably my favourite ride in England - the theming is amazing and the drops are good too!

If only Alton could get a ride like that instead of the flume!

Re: Merlin to take over Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

Yeah the steeplechase site would definately be my choice as it is jerky and not very thrilling at all. However it gets through riders quite quick with three lanes and 4 horses on the track at a time. I agree that it looks better than it is but at the end of the day, visitors and the public will see ...

Plan of attack - Alton Towers

Hey guys, I just wanted to know if there was a specific ride you go on first when entering the park, I personally, get on the skyride to 13 and rita and then move back to nemmy and air and work back to Obliviona and the smiler when the rush is over (as they are near the entrance) do you have a ride ...

Re: Merlin to take over Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

I think the Big One is good as it is an iconic part of Blackpool and it is one of the few mega coasters in England; also it is quite fast on the second drop and I like the inclined turn. Yeah a B&M would do BPB the world of good and it would give them a new coaster to advertise as they haven't h...

Re: Merlin to take over Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

I would love to see BPB rejuvinated I think there is massive potential there with world class rides such as Valhalla and The big one already there! (If you have not been on Valhalla it's amazing!) It also has classic woodies like the grand national and the big dipper which are still a good ride. I w...

Re: SW8

I'd like to see a ride like Valhalla, a real wet water ride with great theming - does SW8 have to be a rollercoaster?

Re: Best Queue Lines Experiences?

Popeye Bilge Rat Barges IOA - the queline is pretty good anyway but the ride broke down right at the start so one the Ride ops came and gave us fast track tickets, then, he was on the start of the fast track queue line and he just let us on all day fast track pretty much! Also, Harry Potter rides in...

Re: Why Don't People Like Rita?

Rita is a good ride and it is adored by the GP, I remember first time I went on it and I loved it! However, the launch is the only good thing about the ride! It pains me to think how good a ride AT could have built! Having been on the Hulk, Florida I know what a great launch ride is like and for me,...

Re: The Future Of Congo River Rapids

Unfortunately, riding this after being on Popeye's bilge rat barges at Universal IOA, Florida was really dissapointing. I understand AT may not have the money Universal do and not everyone will have been on other river rapid rides as good as the Bilge-rat barges but It really lacked entertainment! O...

Re: SW8?

These are just ideas but, Could AT move the blade to Mutiny Bay along with Ripsaw maybe (or move ripsaw) and put a coaster there? Or, Would it be inpossible to an underground coaster, near Gloomy Wood where most of it would be above ground but if things got in the way it would go underground Only id...

Re: NEW 2014

I can't see it being moved to anither place in the park as all the spaces are impractical, Unless it stays where it is (unlikely) I can see it moving to Thorpe Park or another Merlin park
