Re: Paultons Park 2015 & 2016

I think theses parks do put Merlin to shame like they get there coasters in and working before the turn of the year then spend months theming them. I also like the fact they work on Height not age which it should be.

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

If they do have another few bad years then I could see Merlin pulling out of Alton Towers as all they own is the rides. Nick Leslau owns the grounds and the resorts. I highly doubt Merlin would sell Alton Towers. Say what you want but it still made a profit last year. You say they made a profit las...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

The thing I hate about Merlin most is that since they taken over they removed more rides than they have added but still happy to charge over £50 to get in even with a 2 for 1 voucher I feel you don't get good value for money. When Tussards owned Alton Towers when a ride was removed it was replaced b...

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

I think it's quite wrong of Alton Towers saying a new ride for 2016 when it's a retheme of the current ride. I think we could be seeing a new flat ride on the ripsaw site.

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

Yeah but if they were just moving the bridge to allow service vehicles why have they removed the queue line fences as well?

Re: 2015 - Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure

When we went in May lots of the rides in Cbeebies looked in a sad state. In the night garden many of the things wasn't moving and needs a good clean and painting.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

You can be trained to the max and worked on the same ride for years but when you got management around you and maintaince staff you can go into panic mode. I think Merlin really need to take the whole blame and not just 1 person. For starters Maintaince should have checked out the problem why it tri...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

Has it even been confirmed yet that they are closing 6 rides next year? Also, it's too early for them to announce new attractions, so if they are closing 6 rides next year, they could be being replaced by 8 new attractions, which would make the situation much better. Well if the Blade and Ripsaw go...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

For Merlin to shut all them rides wouldn't be a big lose to them as only Sub Terra was added after Merlin took over. The rest were added by former owners. I'm surprised Duel not on that list as well.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Alot of things I read on social media mainly point to the fact that human error was the cause and they won't be riding it again just in case it happens again.
I think they need to do new breakdown voices for next season

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I think if I read a paper again I be to scared to even leave my own home. As for the Smiler I'm willing to give it a chance again but if I do see any staff not fully focused on the ride I will report them.

Re: Which SW coaster do you think will be removed first

I love the new B&M vest restraints, so I would love to see those on nemesis. A track replacement would be good in a few years, but wouldn't be very practical because it may take longer than closed season, meaning it wouldn't be open for fireworks or the first month or so of the season I doubt M...

Re: Which SW coaster do you think will be removed first

My options on all current SW coasters ATM. Nemesis like in corkscrews final years is getting the smallest queue out of the current SW line up. Like I still think it's the best coaster in the uk but the normal GP may not feel the same. With Sub Terra future in the balance I can see Nemesis coaster ma...

Re: Which SW coaster do you think will be removed first

Now bringing back a old topic. It's weird that 51% said that Air would be the 1st coaster to be removed out of the SW coasters and now it's getting all this money spend on it. So thinking now it could be Nemesis removed 1st.

Re: SW8

It would make sense as in the early 00's Alton Towers had two applications rejected for a wooden coaster over the valley.
