Which AT year was the best in your opinion?

Hi Just looking through the archives, and I just wondered, which AT season has the best memories for you? And why? For me it has to be 1997. I vividly remember a scorching family day out, where for the 1st time my brother and I could go on Nemesis together. It was amazing!! It gave me the coaster bu...

Re: Best Movie Soundstracks

That is a good one!
But yes i think you are generally correct, John Williams is a bit of a legend that way. If you were to name the top 5 most people would have at least 3 films that he has wrote the soundtrack to in there top 5

Re: English Football 2011/2012

I still firmly believe united will win the league this season, they have the experience as a side and are traditionally better after xmas....i just feel the Tevez factor, African Nations and possibly Balotelli having a strop will effect Man City and Chelsea to much.....Have to say though, what a squ...

Best Movie Soundstracks

Hi, TBH its a rather quiet night, the wife is working until midnight so fancied some (pointless) geeky discussion! Just finished watching the Star Wars triology. Love the films to bits, but one of my favourite thing about the films is the excellent sounds tracks throughout the films. I just think th...

Re: What company has made the best rides for AT?

I voted mack, even though the 3 B&M's are the better rides, in terms of what Mack have done for the park on the whole throughout its developement they get my vote. Without the Mack rides i suspect AT wouldnt have been able to invest in the big 3


Edit:- Own up who voted Chance?

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

This ride does look gorgeous! As a previous poster said there is just something about a B&M. If the theming goes to plan i really dont think it will matter that much that the ride is short. I also dont expect it to be that fast

Re: Heide Park 2012: Krake scaremaze + more Krake theming

may have read this incorrectly so do you have the link to the original press release? Seems that there is no mention of the drop theming be put in. I really hope they do, would make the coaster far better to look at!

I give up, whatever, please please lock the thread! Its all being discussed elsewhere. The thread should be renamed 'Coasteraddict Circus!'. Joke.

Hi, there is a thread here about the Zierer effort:- viewtopic.php?f=13&t=28551 It does look quite fab and i have a feeling the drop may 'feel' more out of control being a pully system, but hey ho..... Back to this ride, the conecpt are does look fabulous, really could have pictured this at AT i...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

I am still praying this is one of the new ABC tower systems as they look amazing!

Have to say my initial excitement has at least trebled! Early marketing looks good, but then again it did with Th13teen! Cant wait for this!

Re: 2012: New Attractions

Why is this rided getting slated so much before planning has even been granted? Admitedly it looks likely its an extremsis style tower but it may still turn out to be this new system which looks awesome. We stil ddont know how well it will be themed, what effects there will be or what storyline ther...
