:P yeh I suppose most rides do have teething problems, 13 shouldn't really because it was tested before being shipped wasn't it?! :?


It was said to have been but then why was the secret element shipped separately ?

Just seen that Merlin made £236.8 MILLION last year...During the recession too.

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Viral Marketing/Promotional Discussion

All my friends fb status's are commenting on it! I'm thinking, the girl goes into the woods; and gets lost/disappears. Thus the storyline involves her disappearance and the wraiths. Note the 13 necklace 'in the trees'; and possibly the most interesting link could be Rita. Is it still a racing car o...

Anyone else who signed up for these so called e-mail updates think they are few n far between.
Last real pic update was 13 Jan.
So much for being kept up to date,,,i feel like i'm being kept in the dark especially with only 12 days to go.

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

I met up with Brendan Walker a few weeks back. He mentioned that what he helped design wasn't the worlds first feature. Make of that what you will. i'm currently working on ... A really exciting new ride at one of the UK parks. I've been commissioned to help design a particular drop feature. The lo...

As far as i am aware nobody is allowed to divulge anything about Th13teen's worlds first, bound by law before the specified date they are cleared to. Saw could of been a worlds first, by a month or so. Case in point "you could market anything as a worlds first these days" SAW is the world...

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

I think all the hype surrounding the secret element has past its sell by date as we all know it is some kind of drop from one level to another. The first people to ride Thirteen are going to say what it is on here before the general public like us ride it anyway. An update now showing the inside of ...

My thoughts on the inside of the building are, you will enter then tilt 45 degrees forward stop then drop to horizontal then a slight reverse launch for the final helix. Just thought a would throw my opinion into the mix.

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

Also, if you look back at the construction pics where the drop/tilt would meet it, the lower track section isn't angled upwards as you would expect if the movable section wasn't horizontal. I'm 99% sure we won't see a tilt, and it will be a vertical drop followed by a backward launch. Three weeks an...

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

We seem to have forgotten the exact words from Alton Towers regarding the survey they carried out 18 mts ago. The Rollercoaster ride could incorporate a Switch / Tilt mechanism where a section of track the length of the train tips, tilting the train to a 45 degree angle. The train is then released, ...
