It is good, except for the exterior which looks crap.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

if you can only see it from the top of oblivion for 3 seconds then whats the problem? Enthusiasts being enthusiasts. Alton Towers sorta have to do it... otherwise they would get no money from fanta to build the smiler... Wouldn't put too much money on anything substantial from Fanta going into this...

Who cares what's on the roof...as long as they sort out what you can see at ground level.

Re: X Sector Refurbishment

Why are people so concerned about that logo on the roof? There was a Coca-Cola one up there for 13 years, yet nobody complained about that.

I'm more interested that they paint the pipes black again.

Re: X Sector Refurbishment

I would agree that both Enterprise and Submission have long since had their day. Most flats installed at Alton Towers over the years were out the door before they even reached ten years old, but these two seem to have hung on for longer (and much, much longer in the case of Enterprise) simply becaus...

Re: Thorpe Park 2013 General Discussion

With any luck they will re brand Thorpe Park next year and we will see the back of this dreadful map style and those stupid fatheads. Then again, maybe not.

Re: Nemesis Inferno & Colossus to get a repaint?

Looks better now in my opinion - the 'original' red colour was tacky and garish whereas the brown-red which it now boasts is kind of intimidating (and also fits in well with the 'volcano' theming centerpiece). Same goes for Colossus in that its location is within the 'Lost City' and therefore looki...

Re: Burger Kitchen Inside Photos

It does look pretty smart and stylish (but not overly so), but when you know how well it was once themed you can't help but feel disappointed.

Better than the bland affair that was Burger King at any rate.

Re: X Sector Refurbishment

Hopefully it has just been removed for a clean up and polish. Would hate to see the naming changed to "Oblivion Shop" and "arcade" or something equally as generic.

Re: Burger Kitchen Inside Photos

I really don't know why there is any discussion on this 'new' Burger restaurant at all - it is blatantly obvious that they have just done the very bare minimum to convert it from a high street outlet. It is literally just an exterior repaint, new tables and chairs and some new ceiling lamps. Moving ...
