Re: Best and Worst Queue Lines At Alton

Hex is probably my favourite. Followed by Duel then probably Nemesis. I love the indoor bit of 13 but that doesn't out way the hatred I have towards the outdoor bit. I don't like the indoor queue for The Smiler and although I enjoy standing under the smiler for about 10 minutes. The rest is plain bo...

Re: Towers Loving Care

As far as I'm aware, the lower half of the helix not visible on the picture has been painted a rustic red, so quite different to the grey worn look of 94, and now it will be white with rustic red over it as far as I'm aware, you can see it on the TLC twitter photo to the right, it's different colou...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I think having the two forests next to each other could clash a bit. They could be a bit confusing for people who don't know the park well, and I feel like their themes would just be too similar. That said, it would depend on how it was done. Personally though, I would keep CCL exactly themed as it...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I think CCL should be replaced with a unique theme to AT. I think the Enchanted Forest theme would work really well for the area. Firstly because of the EV and linking it too the park but also because TDF is around the corner. TEF would be a magical child friendly area that could then transition int...

Re: Towers Loving Care

I hate the colour. Nemesis was the one ride on park that didn't need repainting as the aged look boosts the theme. I'm all for up keeping the park however I feel that the money would have been better off spent on repainting the Smiler with a high quality paint. It looks like one of the oldest rides ...

Re: Keeping Alton Towers Resort Safe & Secure

I don't think it's necessary. Getting into Blackpool Pleasure Beach takes ages and is very annoying. I'd hate to see this at Alton Towers as well. At the end of the day people carry too much metal on them. Keys. Glasses. Phones. Jewellery. Belts etc. The time it takes for each person to take it all ...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

I think these closures will be a good thing in the long run. And I also think by not going this year your aren't helping the resort to recover. When you break down the reduced line up. There's only really Hex and Ripsaw that were missing. It's a general opinion on here that N:ST is a poor attraction...

Re: Thoughts on The Smiler Re Opening

It is going to open with the resort at the start of the season. I can't remember who it was but I spoke to someone higher up in he resort and they said it was opening at the start of the season

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Well I'm sure we will hear something soon. I look forward to it. At the end of the day I think people give gimmicks to much stick. At the end of the day you can still have a good ride with a gimmick. Plus Merlin is a company who cater to their market - the general public. The GP will love a VR coast...

Alton Towers - General Discussion

I know it's not much but an update on that coaster in the background. I received an email offer from them with that picture and it has a colossus train on it. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/04/a480442d7fc0968a4759d3a13ae7ec02.jpg I thought that seemed strange as Nemesis has the correct train j...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

Well I too could just be holding on to hope here. At first when I saw the bridge removal I thought I may have just been a queue re route or something however the ride laying in the park doesn't exactly look good. Now onto my hope as I do love Ripsaw. As some said, the current ripsaw isn't fit to me ...

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

I'm slowly coming around to the use of VR to freshen up old rides and give them a new lease of life as an optional feature. I only hope they don't go crazy and start slapping it on every ride. I look forward to it, if air does get it. I think on one ride at a park it would be good, and will be diff...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Although I sympathise that the incident was traumatic for her, I too agree that the article and statement was unnecessary. I get that it is kinda similar however the fact that she will have been travelling round in cars, which have seatbelts that are more similar to the Smiler than a plane and also ...

Re: Rides you want to see leave the park.

TBF, I think the queue for the Smiler works. It shows the contrast of the sad people in the queue and the corrected ones on the ride and kinda works in a way that thats how people would queue to go into a correctional facility like that. Although I'd like to see a more controlling environment. More ...
