Re: SW6 Construction

What reason would you have to go close to the construction site during winter? Is it open to hotel guests? If there's a way I can be there I will. May have to resort to camo paints and deer antlers... 8-[ Count me in, I will bring a thermos flask and cup a soup. Closed season espionage my specialit...

Re: SW6 Construction

Thats awesome ryan, to be honest in that space a lot could happen. However the offload platform is in the wrong place there is a platform on the other side of the station so there is not enough space between the 2 parts.

Re: Alton Towers: 10 Year Plan Revealed!

Tell them stop copying my ideas?!

Did i not say Car Park G about 3 years ago?

Also SW would probably move to Coaster Corner if thats a possible location for anything.

Either way, the futures bright :)
