Re: SW9

They should replace Rita with B&M launched wing coaster.   Something to rival nemesis with the feeling of near misses and low inversions.  It’d be cool to have a retheme of Dark Forest with some sort of water theme, and a decent flat thrill ride to give the area a good kick up the bum. I though...

Re: Which SW coaster do you think will be removed first

I think Air, if I HAD to choose, it's definitely returned on investment, but not as much as Nemesis or Oblivion. 13 can be much better with more work done to the scenery of the ride, right now it's just a jaunt through the woods. Give me buildings to "crash" through, pits of oozing tar, an...

Re: X-Sector refurbishment?

I think X-sell could easily reopen without the need for extra staffing. Just combine the till with the photo kiosk and the 2 people there could man both with no extra payroll costs. I think it should be prioritised rather than all out refitting the area. Hydrator needs to reopen and the whole area ...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Just want to find out if my co-workers are lying, has Nemesis ever failed to complete a circuit? My co-worker claimed the ride was unable to complete the loop and valleyed down. It's unlikely he would misremember, so it seems like a blatant lie, I can't recall ever seeing riders stranded on an AT B&...

Now I need to work on Air.   But I'm really struggling - I can't find any plans anywhere for Air. The only thing I have is this Now th...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

It was phenomenally quiet with the longest queue being Rita with 5 minutes, every other queue was non-existent.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I'm wondering why the Smiler test car stalled in the first place? Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

Went to Alton Towers today, all rides were operating strange

Strangely... All the rides were running with one carriage empty, and the other with guests. Does anyone know why this is? At a guess, I'd say so that they don't leave guests waiting pre-station on the ride while they are getting the train in the station unbuckled then buckled up and ready to go out....

Air / Galactica Plans or Blueprints (Lift Hill Angle??)

Hi Guys, I'm making a pretty beefy recreation of Forbidden Valley in Planet Coaster and I'm about to move on to construction of Air. Nemesis was made possible by plenty of photos of the planning permission and blueprints scattered around google, for Air I can find none of these. Does anyone have an ...
