Do we know if AT are doing anything with Black Hole over the closed season or is it remaining standing but not operating again for the 2006 season?

I just thought i would add that I think Thorpe have done a fantastic job so far, really good coverage of Stealth from the beginning and with the addition of Slammer and Rush last year the plan is all forming together for them. I hope they get the park into overdrive this season, they now have a form...

Unless the park is 5 minutes away i think its best to wait until park opening, for lots of people it would be lots of travelling for one ride, its not going anywhere, wait a month and get the whole park experience with the new ride.

As long the rides not late i'm not bothered, the name being released now wont bring the opening date any closer, I will forgive all if the ride is reasonably reliable and opens on time with the park on the 15th, the actual ride is after all what its all about, I hope they put a biq and good quality ...

Names i find tend to grow on you anyway and eventually you end up atleast accepting them or sometimes even liking them. Slammer and Rush never seemed good names originally but now i rather like them. Its been called Stealth for so long it almost feels right as the actual name :? The Edge sounds crap...

All seems a bit too much to me, more like an Alton Towers wish list if anything. Somethings got to happen with Black Hole reasonably soon and will be interesting to see what goes in and how bigger investement it is, will be a good guide as to the parks current direction. All the things mentioned wil...

But there is also rumours about AT which sound good for the next few years. I like Thorpe its 100miles away rather than Alton is 200miles away from me 8) I visit Thorpe more than Alton, if the distance was the opposite I would visit Alton more than Thorpe, Simple, plus Dad and Brother live around Lo...

Thirst is right, its not been put on wrong, the sign is as AT intended although it is different to all the others, the only difference being the banner is on a slant rather than straight like the rest, its not a mistake. have another look, the flags are indeed straight etc like the all the other sig...

Yes you do live in the middle of nowhere. The results of the poll so far are not that bad against Thorpe being this is an Alton Towers forum, At the end of the day Alton was already good, Thorpe has needed all this investment to be considered a worthy partner to Alton, its not here to steal its crow...

And the tyre appears http://tinypic.com/f0uhwg.jpg Nice to see actually, i think the theme will sit nicely in its area, I dont think they should change it just because Alton already have it, they should stick with there original plan and hopefully it will look superb and maybe better than Rita being...

And Thorpe ride crew are down Alton getting a feel for Rita it says on Thorpes site, good idea me thinks. I went to Fright Nights (was superb doing rides in the dark makes it a whole different experience) and Stealth looked really good lit up with a varying colour spotlight, whole place looked amazi...

I'm still sure its more dangerous to use a mobile phone than to live near a mast and we all use mobile phones. Problem is there is mobile phone type radiation around everywhere anyway, the air is full of transmissions and its almost impossible to be certain of it or any particular source causing any...

A car park is exactly that, Altons is no magical paradise, its full of cars. Alton has to hide its rides from view, Thorpes can be seen, personally i like being able to see some of it from the car park as you come in, like i said the parks compliment each other, Thorpe is not trying to copy Alton it...
