They have really put some effort this closed season, makes such a difference to the park when it looks cared for, Nemesis is odd though, i think the track looked better before, it added to the theming, the track looks too clean.

Exactly, i always check my own restraint if thats at all possible, the more responsibility you take away from the rider the less responsible they will be. Log flumes are a prime example of something thats been operating for years in its current state but by its very open nature, you are aware that i...

Rides, all including Intamin are the safest they have ever been, to the point where some rides are shut down without any fatalaties at all because the cost of updating an old ride is too high, like the long running Black Hole lets not forget, with no major injury history suddenly needs more work of ...

You have to make a ride completely foolproof, so there is absolutely no way anything can happen. If you have ever wondered why rides break down so often and nothing seems to be a problem, its quite often the systems telling the control computer that something is not correct, like for instance if it ...

As Coasters go its probably not going to be a world beater but at the same time its a perfectly good addition to a good park, they had a plot of land spare which you could just about fit a non complex Intamin Rocket Coaster and i'm glad thats what they did, it fits so well with the already fantastic...

We can only hope, he certainly has the right balance of pleasing both a profit making company (Tussauds) and a demanding enthusiast, still including the general public too.

Its all gone very quiet about the early ride competition, it was obviously set for such an early completion but it was not to be.

I really hope its not his last major effort at Alton Towers, would be a real shame, maybe his semi retirement is because he has lots to live up to, he can finish his career on a high rather than push on with the possibility of new projects not living up to the fine Wardley reputation.

I didnt say there was a need just shocked that we have not seen one, they must all be out :lol: :D :W

All the Tussauds parks have different strengths and different things that i like, thats why they work so well as a group, because they are not the same and not trying to be the same, all good 8)

No moderators in here yet, i'm shocked I view all three parks as one, they complement each other, do things the others cant and this argument has been done before and where it should of been, not in a Stealth discussion topic, Stealth v Rita, ok i suppose, parks in general noooooooooooooo.
