Re: SW6 Ride & Construction discussion.

The best way to keep it a secret would be to deliver it overnight, without plastering it in 'Alton Towers - Secret Weapon Inside - 2010' I see the start of closed season teaser material. Nice! I agree. Although I also don't think that was the real element. More likely that was filmed 2 or 3 days ea...

Re: Official Oakwood Thread!

In my opinion oakwood has let itself go since the new owners I went in august, it was quite a busy day, and to obviously save on staff costs they only ran one train on speed and megafobia leading to horrendous ques. Also the staff were extremely rude, compared to last year when me and my friends ha...

Re: Flu issues?

I work in a shop and have people facing me all day every day, I would be only too happy to have them with their backs to me! Even less chance of catching anything that way!

Everyone needs to just be as cautious abo...

Re: Home Videos 1994 & 1996 (Youtube)

I remember the days, my first visit to Alton was back in 1992 when I was just 10 years old, These are the golden years of AT, when Tussauds had just started to take over and invest money! And where it was the sort of place people cared about looking after, it makes me sad to watch the 94 video, That...

Re: SW6 Construction Part Two

The very first part of the ride (Lift Hill/First Drop/Turnaround Helix/Airtime Hill) Look very similar to Intimidator 305's first section (Its like a Mini Me!) Awesome Photos, loving the look of the ride, dark colours in the middle of the forest, this is going to be very exciting, just hope we still...

Re: SW6 Construction Part Two

We can all hope, I actually visited Alton the day after the big 4 hour stuckage, not a single problem that day though!
