Re: SW8

Just a thought but with the powered/launched lift hill and the relatively short track could the trains make 2 circuits of the track with a different speed of launch on the second circuit to give an out of control/runaway train type of feel. Not sure how this would work with multiple trains but mayb...

Re: SW8

My online real concern with this is the fact that the lift hill is only 10 m or 37 ft tall. This doesn't seem like it would be tall enough to get any real speed, unless the drop is taller than the lift. Or if there is a launch :) Sadly I don't think there will be a launch. TT is saying there is a l...

Re: Universal Studios Japan

I was watching some footage of it on YouTube and it was on the waiting time board, I'll see if I can find it. This video shows the waiting time right at the end, but it's in Japanese. It does show the amount of people in the queue though, which looks ridiculous. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=envMv...

Re: Universal Studios Japan

Has anyone heard about the length of the queues on opening day?. From what I've found, it went up to 750 minutes, but I've only seen proof of it going up to 400 which is still incredibly long!), has anyone else heard/seen anything?

Thrilling Coaster

Do you think that Chessington will ever receive a thrilling roller coaster?
Personally I think a GCI wooden coaster would be a good fit, or possibly an intamin multi-launch coaster, like Cheetah Hunt. A family-thrill coaster would be good for the park in my opinion.

Re: The Euthanasia Coaster gets a dark short film!

Nice to see the actor got to ride a B&M. Could you imagine if they made him film on a vekoma SLC? he would have probably sued the person behind the making of the video :lol In all seriousness I am confused as to what even made him think of this... I don't think he'll need to act if he's on an S...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Questions about the Premium Merlin Annual Pass.
Are the share the fun vouchers available to use multiple time at multiple attractions, once at each attraction, or just once at one attraction?

Re: If you owned the Alton Towers Resort, what would you do

-Firstly I would give Galactica its own area, separate from the forbidden valley and extended it into the south car park. Here I would add some flat rides, possibly a Zamperla Hawk and also give it a space theme. -Add a thrill flat ride t the X-Sector in Submissions old plot. -I would move all the c...

Re: Nemesis removal

I'd like to think that when it does become old and ready for removal, they replace the track, like they have done with Hulk, and the beast can live on.
