Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

What I want to know is where are the psychological aspects of the ride we were promised? As far as I can see the only real thing is the smaller 'teaser' freefall drop before the bigger one, but that would hardly take the "world's leading thrill consultants" to accomplish. I can't personal...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion Part 2

Surely when they draw up the timeline for construction they incoorporate the possibility of bad weather, eventhough we have had extreme weather it still wouldn't of had a huge impact on meeting the deadline would it? Which makes me think the technical issues are a bit more extreme than they are lett...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

As the building is the pinnacle of the theming on this ride i had huge expectations, and it looks ok at the moment, in my mind i had it looking a lot older and worn and to be honest a bit more creepier but hey its looking ok. i've been reading up on this forum for a month or two now checking up to s...

Here we go again,,,some one's apparently been taking non official pics of construction inside the building including pics of the cars & what is said to be a tilt track mechanism. They are supposed to be posted sometime this week on Towers nerds. There are already pics there of old corky's track...

njguy is not the only person who has claimed that trains are on the track so why is he the only one receiving abuse!

Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

Just wanna share some views on the track layout, alot of people have been trying to sugar coat it, but really its a very below average track layout, and we knew that from the plans that it was goin to be a very poor track layout. Theres no point trying to say how amazing the first bend looks. or ho...

Re: SW6 Construction Part Two

There is nothing wrong with making opinions on this ride before it has been constructed! That is what this whole forum is about, debating on things and giving opinions. The ride looks poor for secret weapon standard and thats dissapointing considering the amount of time we have waited. And also this...

Re: SW6 Construction Part Two

When i was looking at those banked turns in the woods they look as if they are going to need a fair amount of speed just to get around them but i still havent been convinced that this ride is not going to be well below secret weapon standard

Re: SW6 Construction Part Two

Ive seen the wooded bit for myself and it looks ok at best but nothing to scream about. This ride is going to be good i dont think anyones saying that its going to be below good, but i think because it has been branded as a secret weapon everyones expectations sky rocket so when they see something t...

Re: SW6 Construction Part Two

Still yet to be properly excited about this whole project especially now that I've seen the wooded section for myself, I mean when you see it in person it looks at best mediocre sort of like a smaller MUCH tamer version of the ultimates 2nd section. For me unlike most people I felt that out of all a...

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

I pray its thrill based i really do And to say Alton are trying to get a good mix i think the scales are a bit unevenly balanced on the family side with every year another family based ride been added. Looking at the plans i cant really see this being on the thrill level that we are used to but bein...
