Re: Corkscrew loops?

I think they meant the other way around, so that Corkscrew keeps its yellow colour and the supports are purple! #-o I'm not sure... it says the stanchions are to be gold. Now I'm assuming that's referring to the support posts and the structure to be purple, which would be the track. Hope I'm wrong ...

Re: 2010: something new for the Nick Outta Control building?

How big is the building? Is there any space behind it?

Could there be enough space for a small family oriented dark ride?

Ciao Bambini/Schneeflockchen sort of thing.

Still only a soft opening/technical rehearsal. Could be closed at any time.

I'm seeing talk of the grand opening now being around HHN.

Re: Florida 2010: September

If you're after a villa then I can highly recommend the place we stayed in last June and will be again this October - http://www.virginholidays.co.uk/brochur ... t_and_spa/ A little cheaper than a villa, but all the same benefits. http://www.kaynti.co.uk/gallery/albums/2008/110608%20-%20Florida/1106...

I cant say about Fright Nights as I havent done them as I was too scared. Just correcting your typo mate ;) The Thorpe mazes have a sort of "Boo! Now hurry up and move along" feel to them. The smaller Terenzi ones seemed to be out of control. There were instances of groups getting turned ...

I discussed this idea after seeing the hole on my last visit. Quick animation to show what I hope will happen. http://link2ict.bham.org.uk/home/eduacrjs/sw6.gif Of course they can add some show effects before dropping you or before the launch. But basically, enter building. Drop. Reverse magnetic la...

Re: Alton Towers: 10 Year Plan Revealed!

I've always said a second entrance in the Valley would be useful.

During main operation months keep the main entrance on Towers Street and use the Valley one as a second exit.

What it would allow for is limited winter operation of Nemesis & Air through that entrance.
