Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

I don't see why the majority of people on here are adamant that BaM will never change, well for one BaM will quite likely be looking at developing a smaller scale more affordable design because we are in a recession and not every park can afford to throw 20 30 mill around and BaM will have realised ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

My Review of SAW

So i've ridden SAW thorpes new ride and i think the word average sums it up. Nothing really stands out on this ride. Actually i think SAW had a whole lot of potential and it failed. The layout is just like any other geustler which is plain and boring, yet again nothing stands out and i actually foun...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

Also its said that the rides are similar. Does that mean similar in the sense that both rides have an indoor section or similar in the way of track design?

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

You know theres a lot of talk about how the theming on this ride is going to be great so we should appreciate it but no ride should rely solely on theming. From planning applications and the planning video i think this ride is more theme orientated which can be good or bad. For me its bad because i ...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

I really can understand why the locals would want to complain when a stream of cars is flying pass their houses every morning but some of them are complaining purely because they didn't get their relief road which to be honest is pretty childish and spiteful. Its not as if Alton are holding back fro...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

I find speakers and on board sound systems kind of ruin the experience for me unless the sound/music is high quality and really does add to the atmosphere, if not then theirs no point because then the music sounds out of place. Like on space mountain and Disney Land Paris, the music on that ride has...

Re: Alton's lack of anything for years!

The above point is true and just furthers the point that Alton Towers far exceed Thorpe because eventhough thorpe have more flats Altons are used and themed and placed much more intelligently

Re: Alton's lack of anything for years!

Elementist when people critisise Thorpe Park they are not doing it on the basis of pure hate for thorpe park, instead they do it because they know Alton is in a totally different league to Thorpe and find it ridiculous when Alton and Thorpe are compared or their is the slightest hint of Thorpe Park ...

The apposing minority will not realise how much Alton does for them until they get their own way and begin to stop Alton from developing and prosporing, and by that time it will be too late and unemployment will hop in and businesses will slump You can tell i take business :lol: Anyway like a lot of...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

Wouldnt alton have a back up plan, a plan B that would obviously not be as good as the original but something just incase a moaning resident comes up with something else to throw at alton Also i cant believe that alton have not done their research on the surrounding area it just dosent sound like them

No just pure hear say speculation. I for one hope that we do not get Robo arms and get something more on the lines of samuri which has already been mentioned above by astro of the dan for poor liability but something like that would be extremly better than robo arms and would have a much higher thro...
