Re: Air Tunnel

Exactly, covering the concrete floor of the tunnel to then uncover more concrete in the station will just ruin the effort of doing the tunnel. It will take away from the magic of the ride and to me the floor gives the ride this futuristic feel. I just hope they leave it like it is and properly theme...

Re: Th13teen Presentation Evening Video

It was cool to see the TT forum on the slide show haha and it is really good to know that they really do read these forums and what we are talking about. I am not writing another bad thing about At again :P just for my own safety :P

Re: Alton Towers next thrill ride

This means that the flume replacement thread started by '2006 + Planning Worker' or whatever he/she is called, again is a big lie and is again wrong. Why do people just decide to do that, it's just really annoying. Hopefully this new ride will be John's best creation yet :lol: , but in my opinion no...

Blame the ball haha they all seem to be doing that :P or the Vuvuzelas :D Overall it is a shame about what happened as I want to see England do well in the World Cup and he has had alot of stick for that horrible moment. Hopefully he will be able to bounce back and continue in the team :D This sort ...

Re: New Water Coaster 2012

As nice and as amazing as this idea is (the thought of AT having a Poseidon... mmh!)... Where's my dark coaster to fill the Black Hole tent? :evil: Why rip up another ride when there's space to be used? Since the Black Hole closed this has happened loads of times, so I wouldn't bet on them suddenly...

Re: New Water Coaster 2012

Not sure whether to believe this or not because as Diogo said there isn't any proof and they wouldn't have leaked this. Just trying to think how Alton would be able to get a good ride with a decent drop like on Poseidon (although that drop is huge and wouldn't fit in AT's height restriction) and the...

Re: Alton's Biggest Win! (If that is how you put it.)

There are no rumours, are there? We've heard a rumour from a fairly reliable source, but find it extremely hard to believe myself. There's something about Nemmy that makes me smile everytime I take a ride. I've been on it hundreds of times now, and its appeal has never dwindled. Even sitting watchi...

I used YourDay two years ago and ended up buying the DVD after asking the staff to see the videos before we purchased. I thought it was brilliant because my little cousin had never been on oblivion before and this video will remind him of his first time. :P The faces that you see are just amazing, e...

Re: The Future of the Blackhole Tent

Surely with a Eurofighter they could just have a small launch instead of a lifthill and they could have much more track in there as the trains are very small. I could see a small launched eurofighter in the tent. Would go well with the X -sector theme of done properly. :D

Re: Air station needs to be darker inside!

You really think that AT would spend so much money on doing this 8 years on from when it opened...they didn't do the tunnel so they aren't going to do this! If AT haven't done the tunnel by now, which they haven't, then they aren't going to do anything to the station! I like the station the way it i...

Re: 2011 Onwards: Alton Towers' Future

Don't judge me on this if you don't agree but... I feel that alot of parks should look up to Port Aventura, as they in my mind have most things spot on. They have many shows throughout the day, they have the big shows at night like the water and lighting show in the med' lake. Their areas are themed...

If they were to make it soley based on zombies then they could theme it around Nazi Zombies off of Call Of Duty World At War, as this could be the sponsor for the ride and would attract quite alot of publicity especially with CoD fans...Like Me! :P :lol: Mind you it might offend the german visitors...

Re: Most blatant queue jumping ever!

I will not stand for queue jumping anywhere. If you step out of the queue, for whatever reason, you have left the queue and forfeit your place in line. I frankly don't care where your friends are, etc, you left the queue and go join the back of the line again. If you want something to eat/drink the...
