Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

From people who have been on it today, they are in boiler suits and have gas masks, therefore I presume they are trying to contain the monster, but I haven't got a clue tbh.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

This is only what Iv'e heard, but it's just a black room, with a few actors and some strobe lights. But that could be wrong so don't hold me to it.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

There will have to be a split exit from the lifts, I'm pretty sure Health and Safety will be against 40 people in a shipping container at once! So yeah, I fully expect staggered exiting from the two lifts. :) I highly doubt they will stagger people coming through the exit elevators, they can't real...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

maybe the countdown is the time in which the lift is closing in order to create a sense of panic? but this would be made ineffective if people thought it would be funny to walk very slowly to the lift so when it hits 1 the doors don't close. Going off what you said Alex, which I hope happens, as pe...

Re: Alton Towers 2012 in Review

That looks great! It also look very similar to the ones that can be found at PortAventura! Which are themed very well too! It's nice to see they are removing generic games machines and replacing them with themed units!  :D

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

Im hoping that the original exit section after the elevators has been made into another 'room / scene' and then you move through round the corner into the shipping container  :D

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

The "extension" if you can call it that, looks a lot better than I thought it would, however that seems a very small opening for 40 people to get out of at once?

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

I hope they make the exit corridor look like one of the rock sections, like the elevator didn't make it to the top and you have to find your way out! Not gunna happen though...

Something I just put on Facebook which i'll put on here too: The thing I was wondering was, I presume the people scaring you will be 'Phalanx Operators', but then I thought why would they be scaring you? If you should be scared of anything it would be the Nemesis creature which is on the loose, the ...

If I have heard correctly, the shipping container will be a Picsolve photo kiosk, however I could be wrong. :)

Re: Scarefest 2012

Im not sure if this has anything to do with Scarefest, but as many of you know the path lights were removed from the Haunted Hollow earlier this year. I walked through yesterday and tall wooden posts have been placed at various points along the pathway. Could this be for Scarefest lighting?

Ripsaw always runs better when the SkyRide is down... it gets more power!

Silver lining and all that :D


I wouldn't completely agree with that, it was more like a pirate ship today, it took about 7 swings to get all the way around!  :P

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

I think the announcement about security checks that used to be in the batching area before the TV screens were added, should be brought back to outside the baggage hold and around the entrance area? Just a thought.

Re: The death of the (remaining) magic

The park is dieing. There's no more to say. A point I would like to add however is this: The new custom made Cash Desk number system in Towers Trading which tells guests which till to go to cost quite a few thousand. Useless. How many cans of paint could that have bought to re-paint areas of the par...

Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

I know I literally moan about everything, but the park is now seriously going down hill. Why do Merlin keep making these stupid decisions? They are not short on money, so why lower the quality on everything, shorten hours and cut attractions? They said they were closing Enterprise and Submission - u...

Re: Waterpark: General Discussion 2012

Here we go again... Quenchers just recently went through quite a revamp this closed season when the Waterpark had it's annual maintenance paint job - The name and theme fits perfectly with the caribbean environment, why change it? If it's not broke don't fix it.
