Re: The Future of Spinball Whizzer (Cbeebies Land Expansion?)

If it isn't sold, I would like to see it rethemed to Cbeebies Land, so it dosen't have to leave and it means Cbeebies could take over Adventure Land. Not sure what character would get there own coaster but you never know...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

No I do believe those Thorpe Park relocation rumours will be dying by now unfortunately. I think Spinball will be removed but it won't be until they've invested in at least another family thrill coaster somewhere else and I've feeling that it'll be in the next 10 years or so

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

Yh absolutely agree. I think if Blade is to stay, I do think it should be rethemed to fit FV. Give the flat ride a backstory!

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

I believe that this looks like general refurbishments to upgrade the ride system so it can keep operating in the long term. And this also excludes those long term development plans cause they mentioned the removal of Blade, Flume, Ripsaw and Spinball (but of course, Spinball and Blade are still here).

Re: X-Sector refurbishment?

Smiler needs a new type of Gerstlaurer train or track to make it smoother. Oblivion needs an upgrade...maybe even a new name and a new looping flat ride in Submission's site. Maybe a next gen Submission but named to something else.

Absolutely pal! Would've been nice. Especially if it's a new attraction...tease it up on TLC as well as AT Twitter, FB, Youtube, etc

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

Yeah, I already knew that it'd be a 2018 finish for the Towers Loving Care program despite further improvements throughout the years. But the success of this should give Thorpe Loving Care a boost in happening! But I expect more TLC at Towers such as CCL, Ripsaw's site and more filled with new life ...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

I do feel as if Th13teen will be a coaster to stay...but only if there aren't any storied coasters with better technology. Like one of those Dynamic Attractions SFX Coasters (Gringotts from Universal) but themed around Th13teen with an extended backstory!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

See this makes me think that the old queue line part of Charlie will be split up. One section for the pre show into the first scene, then the first scene which'll flow into the boat ride with some new effects, then they'll do some more scenes afterwards but I kinda think they'll either keep that ele...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

Here is my idea for a scare maze at Scarefest: Alton Manor: We're All Dead Here Guests enter the queue line, filled with hanging lanterns and teddy bears tied up in a noose as if they are being hanged at the gallows. Visitors enter in groups of 10-15 and they wait in the living room floor. In a sudd...

Oh no! THEY ARE DOING A THORPE PARK!! I bet they'll announce a relocated family ride for Dark Forest next but it'll look temporary.

Re: SW9

I have been thinking and something great for SW9 is a launched Flume ride. Only cause you see the hydraulic water slide launches recently and I think something like that but an LSM launch especially built for water coasters and their manufacturers like Intamin or Mack.

Re: Early Ride Time 2019 Predictions

That's a realistic line up. I would love to see CBeebies Land, Mutiny Bay, Wicker Man, Nemesis, Blade, Galactica, RMT and Duel. It goes along with Dan's idea of one side of the park but also gives guests a sneak preview of CCL, Dark Forest and X Sector from behind the barricade.

Maybe Hex too...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I was expecting a flat ride like a gyro swing or even a new version of the top spin. Why was Ripsaw removed? I know it's TLC but it's a great ride. No one hated it as far as I know and it isn't a ride that was the pain of maintenance costs

Re: The Next Themed Area/Area Refurb

Yeah, I think CCL will go in 2019. They'll stop access through Scarefest then the first teasers will come then and the full announcement in January 2020.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

Would they take Nemesis Sub Terra ride system into the dungeons and those junior towers in CCL to fill the lineup and replace Frog Hopper. Like an upgrade
So this could mean that Frog Hopper will leave the park

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Also, Nick Thompson said at the press event today that the park will be adding "about" 3 significant new rides in the next 7 years. I'm sure it was mentioned somewhere that the plan was for Mack to deliver at least 2 more rides for Pleasure Beach (so 3 rides in total including ICON). I gu...

The Next Themed Area or Area Refurbishment

Just came to my attention, what does everyone think will be the next refurb of a current area or even a new area altogether?
