Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

Don't see what's so important about these? Most other images have been of themeing etc. They seem to be keeping things well under wraps still!

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/5537/myview.jpg Thought I'd put something together to give us all an idea as to what the theming of this ride would look like. So basically, I just brought together the plans, for the layout and themeing (entrance/station) along with the concepts. Each letter of t...

Re: 2010 Park Map

I personally think the style at the moment is their best yet! Can't really see it changing a huge deal next year atall - especially after park-wide branding came with the map so that everything fits.

Re: Scarefest 2010

Why not have a Scare Maze on the path of Haunted Hollow - There is enough space. A mixture of in door and out door sections would be a good mix for an awesome scare attraction!

Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

I did Media for my A levels, and we did a lot on the different formats of advertising. If an institution such as Alton Towers we're bringing in the 'Shrine of secrecy' for SW6 it wouldn't be brought in such a dramatic way, and filmed, and put on Facebook. it is a great way to raise speculation and ...

Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

The Helix at the end makes me believe the opposite. It’s around the same size as Rita’s and so if the cart isn't moving with enough speed before the helix it will never get all the way around. Remember that the helix does get slightly higher before the switchback. That’s why I believe it will be fa...

Re: Ug Land / Rita 2010

Regarding a Rita rename. People saying she will keep the 'Rita' part of her name more than likely have it right! Very established amoungst the public, as I noted in a conversation with some friends yesterday who were calling it Rita, not the full title. Slogan and Logo change in my eyes. Afterall, i...
