Thrill Challenge

Just noticed on the AT Twitter site that there will be a "Thrill Challenge" at Alton Towers in September. It links to the Oblivion page on the Tower's website but all it has is a banner about the thrill challenge. Could this possibly be a competition for the first riders of SW6 next year? ...

Re: Oblivion

There's quite an interesting video on youtube about the designing and building of Oblivion. If you go to 4 minutes you can see how deep the hole is. :D

Re: Hex

It says envisage, so that makes me think that that thing about it being replaced about 2014 was from when Hex was built.

What makes Alton Towers your favourite theme park?

Is it the rides or the atmosphere and history that you don't get at other parks?

Re: Quick Questions 2009

Yeah it is slightly suprising but its alrite when you have the traffic lights to tell you. If you just put your head back against the restrainsts and just relax you will be fine, I was a bit scared when I first went on Rita but now I know what it's like I'm excited when I wait for the launch.

Re: Quick Questions 2009

1. Unfortunately I think that you can only use the fasttracks on the day of purchase as the staff check the dates I believe. 2.Rita's launch is really fun. It just feels like you are pinned back into your seat and its really exciting, it won't make you feel sick or anything, it's definitely recommen...

Re: Alton Towers: 10 Year Plan Revealed!

I really cannot see them getting rid of Nemesis or AIR in the next few years. These are perhaps AT's biggest crowd pullers.

Re: Alton Towers: 10 Year Plan Revealed!

Can't wait to find out what happens! I think three major roller coasters in UG land is unlikely although i'd love to see it happen. To be honest, I'd be sad if there was a new entrance, I love the excitement of walking down Towers Street looking at the Towers.

Re: The abandoned Alton Towers Schwarzkopf

To be honest I really would have liked to have seen how this turned out, as someone mentioned earlier Alton Towers is missing a big lengthy coaster, and actually thinking about it, the whole of the UK is. Is the longest roller coaster in Europe not long enough for you? Have to say though AT really ...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

As I'v said before im quite sure that this brendan walker drop is for SW6. As he says "I've been commissioned to help design a particular drop feature" it sounds like there is more to the ride than just the drop so I really cant see it being any thing other than SW6. Also he works for Merl...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

I think that it is most likely that it will be open for the start of the season. Counstruction should be starting about now so they have 9 months to get it built and also it would be a bit stupid if people came to the park on opening day, saw a brand new coaster next to rita, but were told it was no...
