Jason101, I'd recommend a scare-zone first. They're usually a lot less... intense than mazes. See how you go!

thanks the scare zones dont look as bad as the sanctuary etc. but i think i will give them a go

Re: Alton Towers - Staff Attitude Compared to Other Places

Hi All I recently called the Disneyland Paris booking line and have to admit to being so put off by the arrogant attitude that I decided not to proceed further. It made me reflect upon attitudes by staff at parks and how it makes me feel about future purchases. I've slowly observed an increasingly ...

Did Nemesis have any trees nearby when it opened? I'm struggling to find any decent records...

I can only imagine that they think it brings some consistency to the area given that Thirteen's station is predominantly scaffolding.

I wonder who the hell thought that scaffolding makes good theming just looks "clumsy" ](*,)

Re: SW8

I really do think a wing rider wont appear at AT, as much as I would love one there. They are just too big for a park which doesnt have masses of open space (unless AT want to build it on the grass in front of the Towers). Not only have you got the extra wide trains but you have to take into accoun...

If anyone can do a guesstimate about the length of each piece and recognise pieces of the lift hill THEN we can tell how high it will go. Simple! :lol

Re: SW8

I doubt it would be a launched invert as that is too similar to Rita and Nemmy. I wish though that they would get a multi launch as that isn't totally similar to Rita and could have inversions etc. It also could have launches similar to The Incredible Hulks as its different from Rita's launch.
