Re: Ride breakdowns

It's probably all the heat starting to take its toll in more ways than one. Two rides both inside, with limited ventilation...somethings bound to go wrong. Then there's the obvious, Hot days = Busy days, the poor rides are probably getting absolutely slaughtered right now. As for the Skyride, heat m...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

Regardless of end result, Thorpe put so much more effort into their theming. Lets not forget, they're about to build LC12 on top of a piece of disused quarry, which was later half-heartedly infilled and isn't even connected to the park at this time. Alton got to use their Tower as a theming extensio...

Re: The Next Major Coaster To Depart

I really think logistically Air would be the next to go. Oblivion and Nemesis would both require a lot of money to fill in their trenches - probably more than it'd take to replicate the entire track if it needed replacing. And with rides that size there's no way you could leave them SBNO. Removing R...

Re: Ride Hopper Application

If I remember correctly Thorpe parks app only had the major rides on the times. And I seem to remember the queue times only worked if you were actually in the park for some reason.

Anyway, Merlin said they're planning to release official apps for all there parks in due coarse which is great.

Re: Alton Boulders

I'd suspect most of Oblivions excavated land was reused as the hill you walk up to get to the station.

I'd assume you probably get a badge for beating it under a certain amount of time, otherwise why would it time you? I haven't tried a speed run yet though...

Re: 'My Alton Towers' Site to launch this week

To get the missing badge:
[spoiler:1u7lk6uf]On the necklace level, click on the "No entry" sign, and then the "Keep Out Sign" in the next level and ignore all the warnings, it'll give you a game over though but I guess that's supposed to happen[/spoiler:1u7lk6uf]

Re: Oblivion - Now sponsored by Fanta

Sponsorships aren't necessarily about fitting in with the theme of a ride, its more about hitting their target market. In their eyes, Teens love Oblivion, and we want teens to buy Fanta! Kids love the spinball whizzer, and we want kids to buy our Sonic games! Air has something for everyone and its g...

Re: Oblivion - Now sponsored by Fanta

In case you didn't know, Fanta is owned by the Coco Cola corperation, so it's probably the same contract, only they've now decided they want to push Fanta instead of Coke. So as far as retheming goes, take all traces of coke advertising and replace that with Fanta, and that'll probably be the final ...
