Re: Should Thorpe Park Add Single Rider Queues?

I'm not sure but when I last went to Thorpe I thought the swarm and stealth had a single rider queue but that was a couple of years ago now so I don't know if they have since shut them. I personally like the single rider queues , even though I've only used the ones at Alton, because they do get you ...

Re: Should X-sector be re-named/re-themed to Ministry of Joy

I dont think X-Sector should be re-themed because, in my opinion, it's one of the best themed areas at Alton Towers and a Ministry of Joy retheme would just wreck this theme. I would not like the videos on oblivion to be changed either because I love them videos because they really get you in the hy...

Re: The Future of RITA..

I could be wrong on this but im sure rita was not meant to be there but because they made the launch track for stealth to long and or they changed the original plans for stealth so they moved the extra parts to alton. Stealth was originally designed sort of the same as xcelerator at knotts berry fa...

Re: Your World First Ideas

I do like the idea of a launched flying coaster, and this idea wont work at alton, but themed to space so you start under-ground. You dispatch from the station and move so you are facing vertically upwards ,so now your sitting down,  and theirs a count down and stuff they you launch out the top...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

I got stuck on duel once for about 5-10 minutes but like said before all the blasters where still working. We where just going around a corner so on 3 targets where visible. That was fun have a full train of 5 trying to shoot 3 targets and waiting for them to rest before the same again. That was the...

Re: SW8

What Alton Towers needs now for sw8 is a wing coaster 4 times longer than swarm with 19 inversions to stay ahead of most loops and stuff and it can go all way round its area outskirts a 5 min roller coaster that would be brill.  :) As much as I suppose we would all love this to happen,as said ...

Re: Nemesis queue line pics needed

Hi Cobby - to post an image on the forum you need to upload it to an image hosting website, e.g. TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr etc. I use TinyPic the most as you don't need to sign up to use it. Once you've uploaded the image, a URL is usually given that you can paste directly onto the forum using a...
