Re: Alton Towers on Flickr

Those are some really nice pics. You don't often see photos of that quality online from that period, thanks for sharing them. On that one of the flume, is that the final drop? I know logic would dictate that it is, seeing as you can see the queue, but it just looks less high and less steep that I th...

Re: The John Wardley Interview - Submit Your Questions NOW!

I certainly second any questions involving the future of Duel and his opinions on the alleged meddling with his other classic dark rides. And for my personal question: Given your rich heritage of Dark Rides and thrilling coasters, will the new projects you're involved with continue to merge the two,...

Re: Duel's future

It's a tough call. Most of the UK's good dark rides have fallen from grace in one way or another. I wonder what the feasibility of making Duel Live a year round thing would be. I think it'd certainly help the half-baked zombie theme come to life a bit. I wonder if JW will ever spearhead another UK d...

Re: Duel's future

Even if only the old music and the Les Edwards pictures return it'd be a massive improvement. I've hated the new pictures since they first arrived. It's like, who would have portraits of zombies in their house? Let alone several of the same one! The old paintings were just flat out creepy and create...

Re: Drayton Manor General Topic

I'll miss the black revolver. It was good, seizure-inducing fun. I guess it didn't fit in so well though after Klondike got out of Dodge.

Re: Magic Kingdom, Orlando Developments.

The rumours are now flying about a proposed Seven Dwarves Mine Train coaster, with indoor and outdoor elements. Snow White's Scary Adventures is apparently being closed to eventually be replaced with an unconfirmed dark attraction or potential meet and greet. I like the idea of a new well themed min...

Re: Which 'Tower of Terror' looks the best?

I love the look of the Tokyo building but there's just something about the Florida version. The way its placed at the top of the lengthy Hollywood Blvd (which was constructed just for the ride) and even then it has a good separation from the rest of the street, hidden behind the gardens, which make ...
