Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

I quite liked Sub Terra, I thought it came to an abrupt end but overall I thought it was pretty good and is a decent filler attraction for Forbidden Valley.

Re: The Future of The Flume

But Alton Towers doesn't want to fall into the trap of becoming a stagnant museum for it's old rides. It's sad to see rides that you've loved and have fond memories of being removed or scrapped, but if that process didn't happen then the park wouldn't be able to offer anything new, or innovate with...

Re: The Future of The Flume

I stand by what I've said for a while, instead of removing another classic ride at Towers, get it back to its former glory and get rid of those bathtubs in the process!

I'd hate to see the Flume removed.

Re: Marketing burnt on to your retinas

The daft thing is, in these days of digital photography and cameras on phones, does anyone really need someone to take a picture of them standing on a rotting, tatty old Towers Street? I'd love to know if anyone actually buys the damn things. There is a similar and rather annoying pattern like this...

Re: Nemesis 2012

B&M's never stall, they are designed to go through their elements quite fast. However all roller coasters can have their speed manipulated by wheel compounds. Slightly off the point of Nemesis, but PMBO has different wheel compounds on the three trains it has got and on certain days, if it is r...

Re: Queue Displays

As for the times being wrong or right on the boards, then it is totally up to the information they get off the operator. I don't know how they do it now but when I was working there we used to get a call every so often asking us the queue time and obviously we'd give them a rough estimate, consideri...

Re: Travellers on park

Easter Sunday is never an enjoyable time to visit any theme park, especially Towers or Pleasure Beach. I spoke to a friend earlier on who works at Towers and they were quite surprised at how difficult of a day it is to work on at Towers, I only ever had to put up with one Easter Sunday in my time at...

A kind reminder to keep things on topic in here. I have removed/edited a few posts relating to PBE, by all means include PBE in your post if you have to, although think before you post and add to the discussion effectively. If you have issues with PBE then this should be kept off the forums. Thanks...

Re: The Future of the WingRider

As someone who actually likes Furius Baco, I'd like to see another ride like that but with a better layout after the launch, I've been saying I'd like to see that done at PB ever since I went on Baco tbh!

Re: Park Opening Hours 2012

Daft idea to be honest, I thought PB closing at 5pm for Supersaver Weekends was bad, but this is just shocking really.

It makes decision making a lot easier anyway, I won't be going Towers anytime in the season before Scarefest, as the opening times for the rest of the season aren't that good.

Re: English Football 2011/2012

If Real win La Liga, Pep Guardiola might actually go to Chelsea if Roman has the money. I think Pepe will end up at Man United once Fergie has retired, I will be surprised if anyone wants to go Chelsea, especially Pepe Guardiola who would probably want time to develop the youth squad as well as bri...

I thought it was due for a May opening? I am not going until September, but I am already looking forward to getting on this, it looks fantastic. On the subject of Baco, fantastic coaster imo. Possibly May, although I cannot find much definitive. And as I said, Baco divides opinion, :P Oh I know tha...

Re: Former Irn Bru Revolutiion Getting A Facelift for 2012!

Anything is better than the horrific orange and blue colour scheme its had going on since 1997.

I actually think it'll look good and I think people are being unreasonable to judge it before it has even had the new paint job started!
