Re: Ride Downtime 2013

I'm sure it's nothing cause it opened later in the day but I noticed that Air had about an hour of down time this morning around 10:30am. I wasn't on park today but I was informed by a friend who was. Also I had a look on ridetimes.co.uk and noticed it was closed. Does anyone know what happened?

Re: Anyone ever vomited on or after a ride?

I once felt sick after going on submission for the first time in 2005 but I didnt vomit. Apart from that, I have never been/felt sick after any ride ;)

Re: Which Theme Do You Prefer?

I voted UG Land because I loved the bright colours and the happy feel of the whole area and now with the Dark Forest, I feel miserable and bored of the grey and dark green colour scheme. Alton Towers has too many 'dark' themed areas like Forbidden Valley (post-apocalyptic) and X-Sector (Military the...

Re: Why Don't People Like Rita?

I don't understand why so many people don't like Rita, it might not be the best themed ride but it still gets 40-50 minute queues yet so many people on TTF seem to really dislike it. I personally love Rita, its one of my favourite rides and when the time for it to be removed comes I will be upset b...

Re: Ride Cars

I chose The Flume because never before have I seen a bathtub on a log flume and think the whole concept is unique and family friendly  :)

Re: Your favourite/best ride station

As far as theming goes, TH13TEEN has to be the best. The station is fabulous and the surrounding area and queue line is great. However, for atmosphere, I agree with Oblivion, with the bass and TV screens, it gets you right in the mood. :D

Re: Rename the Rollercoaster

I would change The Smiler cause I hate it when you get a new, wonderful rollercoaster and its called 'The' something with all its great theming and backstory it just ruins the ambiaunce of the ride. Although in saying that, if it were my job to come up with a new name it would be something really ba...

Re: Remove A Rollercoaster

None. None of them should even be considered for removal, so why make this topic? And the ones who say Thirteen are a bit silly, considering it's only 3 years old and is very good as a family coaster (which draws a lot of visitors). :) The point of the topic is for people to voice their opinions.

Re: Alton Towers Dreams: How Obsessed Are You?

I once had a weird dream in which I was on Nemesis and as I went through the loop, I fell out, got slung through the air and landed in the Oblivion hole. And just when I thought it was all over, I got run over by a ride car ith 16 versions of the lord of darkness in it  :shock: I was obliterate...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I think the forbidden valley should be spilt into two half's but still be classed as one area for example Nemesis end have a sign saying "you are now entering the forbidden valley-a phanx facility" and air end there should be a sign saying "welcome to the forbidden oasis"  ...

What about Hex?

Do you think Hex is out dated? Should it be removed and replaced with a new, better flat ride? What do you think?
