Duel takes up alot of space doesn't it?

How about getting rid of it completly and building a coaster, maybe there would even be room for another Haunted house attraction as well.

Another question from me,
Does anyone have any music sheets for any of the Alton Towers music,
e.g Duel, Towers Street, Katanga Canyon e.t.c
Tom.


Don't know if this is any help, you might be able to convert it to sheet music.

Sounds good, although I don't like the theme of a speedway in general (alot of launch coaster have it) I think it should have been done better that it has. How about fast food building with grandstand seating outside?

Hey if AT was run by gypo's we would be happy as we wouldn't have to follow local planning law and could built whatever the hell we want. 500ft Stratacoaster anyone? :D

How about a Tim Burton haunted house attraction. I think he would be able to create an amazing house although this is very unlikely!

I may be wrong but I think B&M's can't leave the station unless all restraints are locked on. Surely no rollercoaster can be dispatched without the restraints locked? Like a lot of people - I like my restraints nice and loose. Even though they shut more under G's, the lift hill is more fun when you...

I'd love to be able to walk to the top of a lift hill, nemesis or air probally. Also it could be good to see duel in the light or in the black hole tent.

I think Thorpe should go with something very unique, something not elsewhere in England, they should get something to become an icon for the park (I know thats what Stealth is supposed to be) maybe a worlds first? At least a Euro first?

You've just got to think is it worth building a huge hole for a tower ride?
How much did the oblivion hole cost anyway?

I don't think it will happen although I've been very surprised by tussauds in the past! :D

If Thorpe are to open a major coaster in 2008, it will most likely be of advanced technology and something relatively new if not exclusive. The stand up coaster concept is over 12 years old, and somewhat less than popular. Ever wondered why only a handful were ever built? It has even been rumoured ...

I don't find Towers that thrilling. If AT got permission for something that size (not likely) it could be put to better use.

Anyway, im sure it has some kind of safety system that if the restraints we're to fail, the breaks would be applied and you would stop. However, unlucky if it happens on the drop Confused But we all KNOW it's never going to happen lol! If the restraint failed anyway on the drop to the brakes and th...
