Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

Just got back from the park today the staff here are bloody incredible. In my opinion the best theme park staff in the country literally everyone I came across were so friendly making conversation and asking how my day was. Credit to the industry.

Does the ride still suck or have they recruited jesus christ himself and pulled off some kind of miracle?

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Aren't they referring to 2015's project as LC15 or is that just fan sites? (Ignore don't know where I got that from)

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Can someone help me with this. I have a question so obviously Alton Towers go to a manufacturer and say we want say a Eurofighter for instance. So after this does someone from Alton Towers design the ride or does the manufacturer say here are some designs? Once the design is approved and constructio...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

two brief points - 1) The Swarm was originally called "LC12" - I believe on fences and even down to the early website. Therefore it's entirely likely that AT will continue with the name SW7, until shortly before opening, when the "real" marketing kicks in. 2) SW7 - The worlds fi...

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

I visited the park for my second time about three weeks ago (my first I was about 6) and I have to say I was really surprised. I like the whole theme they have going on with the adventure thing I think it works well for them. I have to say I really enjoyed Vampire for how old it is its a really grea...

Can someone help me understand the dueling thing. Will it be two separate tracks like Dueling Dragons at Islands Of Adventure?

You don't need to state that Air isn't a sit down coaster everyone accepts that but Nemesis and Oblivion are clearly sit down coasters

Re: Travellers on park

Thorpe Park was full of them on Sunday as well. Every time I was in the fast track queue there were always at least five trying to get in off of one fast track. I wouldn't say I can't stand them cause they are hilarious to watch. I've just never seen a bigger group of idiots in one place. To echo wh...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Thirteen is a mine train with a drop section. It's a great ride. But it's still a mine train. The point is, the cost is irrelevant to the base ride model. Thirteen cost that much because of the drop, if SW7 really is costing around £20m, then it's because of the theming, landscaping, what (if anyth...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Wow i've not been in this thread for a while but boy oh boy has it gotten strange debating what a sit down coaster is. I look at a seat at something I place my buttocks on with something to rest my back on. So how in the hell is Nemesis not a sit down coaster? You SIT in a seat
