Re: Alton Towers Dreams: How Obsessed Are You?

I had a dream the other night that was so cool & weird I had to draw it in Sketchup. I also think its quite funny. So call me crazy or whatever, I know exactly the way this might sound to people and I'm posting it anyway. One practical reason I did this is to show what can be done on the surreal...

Re: Alton Towers 'Inventions' ?

Yeah John probably holds a few patents from his work at Alton Towers.

Wasn't he working on some new spinning coaster a little while back? They never did it but I'd like to know the jist of it. I think I saw the patent images but couldn't make sense of it.

Re: Fawlty Towers

I think one thing they should do is make sure they relax and don't stress themselves out. Whats the point in that?

As a side note: I'm pretty sure Alton Towers is in an episode of Fawlty Towers.

Re: Was th13teen really a failure?

I love th13teen. Its got a dark and backwards section, its got a medium level of theming but thats much better than nothing. The drop was a suprise to everyone even whether they read about it on the forum or rode it without prior knowledge. Something no one seems to have mentioned is how this ride s...

I guess rides are like cars, you can replace parts for aslong as you want but sooner or later it becomes more economic to get a new one.

Re: another ride in the towers?

Do they not own the towers? From what I heard I thought they owned the Towers but its also protected by National Heritage.

I'd be all for a ride that uses the towers as part of the que because it forces you to take in the history with the fabricated adventure.

Re: Alton Towers profits fell sharply in 2011

well I hope AT decides to get super creative and magical in a bid to restore things. Th13teen and Subterra are good though... Chris did you see one time I suggested a Laser Quest where you take a short dark ride into the middle of a building and get off at a well themed Laser Quest? Not telling you ...

And you aren't gonna get seriously injured from it, you'll just whack your hand. There's more dangerous things out there you see every day.

That's kind of true about the pit of The Blade! I hadn't even thought about that.
It's very nice to look at/be in that grassy channel.

I feel like blade is the rocking chair of the park - its very pleasurable and no other ride offers as many smooth & gentle butterflies as Blade. :D

Re: The Future of The Flume

if it wasn't going I have a new semi idea for it Put a tent over part of it since tents can handle water quite well. No idea what you'd put in it though. The same could be done for rapids since if the tent fell down people would probably be alright aslong as its not too big/heavy. ok so its a crappy...

Re: Model amusment park Items

I think model shops sell some of that stuff for trainsets? They definitely sell trees and grass. I don't know what Faller do but they do some incredible ride models that light up and everything (but I wonder about the level of skill required to build): http://www.faller.de/App/WebObjects/XSeMIPS.woa...
