Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

A tilt coaster in to the valley would be stunning. But i think that if it were a valley coaster then a B&M would be far better in terms of comfort and through put of the ride.

Well the thing is i cant see it being sold to anouther park as they would need new trains. It would be nice if they kept the corkscrews and put them somewhere. But i think its most likely to be sold for scrap.

Its not that compact. Its about the same size an Inferno. When i go to thorpe next i'll try and get some pics from Colossus then you should be able to get a better view of the size of the ride.

Im going to try and get to this event i only rode the Corkscrew the first time this year as my dad told me to ride it. The last time my dad went to Alton Towers was when the Corkscrew was only 2 weeks old so im going to try and talk him in to taking me so we can both have a last ride. R.I.P Corkscrew

Some one metioned it being near the carpark how easy would it to have a seconed entrance on the carpark that could be used during the closed season then just have a small charge like £5 of somthing like that. Im not to sure were abouts it would be loacted so not sure if t possible or not.

As long as it dont look as tacky and messy as the one at Chessington then i think it could be quite good. I was always expecting them to put Pirates 4d film in their.

Surely a 100' drop is the same as a 80' drop? I mean, wouldn't you go faster on a pure 90' drop? If Speed and Rage are anything to go by, the drop just feelf vertical when your on it anyway, so it all seems a bit unneccessary to me. I agree with that but i think they have done it just to rub oakwoo...
