Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

One thing about Alton Towers is that the park has great operations with rides dispatching and they run lots of trains instead of just one.

Re: Two Smiler trains collide -- BREAKING

I can't imagine much would happen apart from it would just naturally get more unpleasant and the colours won't be as vivid.
