Re: 2012: New Attractions

Not been here for a while. Based on the fact that Merlin have the extreme type of rides in various parks, dungeons, towers etc and the footprint of the ride plans looks pretty similar to these. We've pretty much established that the new Attraction will be some sort of Drop Tower, 'Extremis' style, ...

Re: 2011 Onwards: Alton Towers' Future

Ok where on earth did they say it was going to be a family coaster in the pre-build up. Other than stating the ride was a 1.2m the aimed the ride at the thrill market the plans gave nothing away as many a thrill machine has been an airtime beast and we had no idea what happened in the crypt. It was...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

This is already as my desktop background :P lol, hope it turns out decent unlike TH13TEEEEEEEN! But seriously, i am surprised Thorpe are even advertising 2 years before the ride will open, not even anything construction wise either but seeing as krake made it round the track, they hope, and it look...

Re: Shrek attraction for 2011?

Ok I'm probably wrong or looking into things a bit too much, just seems a bit suspicious if you actually check the dates of t...

Re: Shrek attraction for 2011?

I imagine this should be absolute world-class, with their previous customer list already boasting such heavy-weights as Land's End, Great Yarmouth and Western Super-Mare. :roll: :lol: :P I thought that too.

Re: Alton Towers: The Lost Back Stories

I'm actually old enough to remember the fun house back in the 1970's. I remember my head coming into contact with my knee nearly knocking myself out on the drop slide.
