Re: SW8

I think we can firmly say that although this tree cutting is unrelated, SW8 is going to be in FV. I think it will come in 2016. However Alton Towers have said they want to build a cross valley coaster in either 2016 or 2019. There is a good chance this could be SW8.

Re: Alton Towers Photos *VERY PICTURE HEAVY*

Thanks NemesisRider for the photos. They're so great I set one as my pc wallpaper!

Re: Last ride you have been on

The last ride I have been on is The Smiler. By this time next year it probably still will be the last ride I went on (I have an OCD habit of always riding The Smiler last when I go to AT)!!!!!!!!!!!!! :moj

Re: TT Smilefest - 28th March 2015

I think I am probably going to go to SmileFest. I am hopefully going to book tickets this weekend. :D
I am not 18 yet though. Because of this does this mean that I can't go the event, or just that I can't go to the bar at the end?

Re: What will The Smiler be like in 20 years?

To be honest, The Smiler is still unlikly to be working in 20 years. However, I wouldn't be suprised if nemmy was still there!

Re: Create your own backstories!

Ok, I have one for 13. When Alton Towers were taking down corkscrew they discovered a crypt. When they went inside they found the wraiths trying to keep an evil force at bay. However the evil overpowered the wraiths and corrupted them. It then took over the forest to use for its bidding. The evil fo...

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

The first ride I went on was air. The second was Rita and the third was Thirteen. Then it was nemesis and oblivion before The Smiler.

I was really scared before going on all of them, but then again, I an still a tiny bit scared before going on The Smiler

Re: If you owned the Alton Towers Resort, what would you do

I think I speak for every TT member when I say I would just continue to build great rollercoasters. If I had to make one coaster, I would make a cross valley wing coaster that weaved inbetween the trees. I would also get rid of all the baby rubbish in cbebies land and replace it with one or too coas...

Re: Rides You Never Rode (but wish you had)

I wish I had ridden submission.
Before I first went to towers my freind told me how awsome submission was. I had to ride it. I went to towers, headed straight for the x-sector. But it was gone :cry:

It doesn't need one but it would still be good to have one (especially if it means going backwards :yes: )

Re: 2014 Scarefest

I see carnival of screams returning, along with sanctuary, because even though sanctuary was crap, it had high appeal from the general public.
I agree about the sanctuary, not because of the public appeal though. I think it will come back because it will tie in with the smiler.

Re: Nemesis 21st Birthday?

I'm on Alex's side for this one. Nemesis track looks amazing how it is and really compliments the theme. It makes it look like the nemesis creature has been locked away for along time, and seeing the trains go round it and seeing the rusty coloured track, it would make people assume the Nemesis mon...

Re: Alton Towers - Winged Coaster?

I'd love a winged coaster, and the idea is creative, but unfortunately I'm with the anti-swarm crowd I think a winged coaster would be great, Despite the fact it's similar to air. I think that to weave through trees on it would be amazing. However I feel that to copy the story of swarm would be bad...

Re: Th13teen compared to Runaway Mine Train

Calling it 'tamer' isn't what is say, smoother, yes. TH13TEEN, is a brilliant ride, don't look at the main drop and just walk on, you will love it I'm sure :) What thrillmad says is true, just ignore the main drop and from there on its not too different from mine train (until the drop that is ;) ).

Re: Ride you have queued up for the longest is?

I think mine might be the longest. I queued for 4 hours for Rita, and then after 4 hours, Rita broke down. I didn't even get to go on. If it hadn't broken down I probably would have queued for another hour. As I say, I think mine might be the longest.

I would remove 13 as it just cant, and never will, be better, or even a suitable replacement for corkscrew. Bring back corkscrew!

Re: Nemesis 21st Birthday?

I don't think that they will make nemesis go backwards. This is because nemesis a old rollercoaster, and was never designed to go backwards. This would mean that to modify nemesis to go backwards they would have to spend nearly as much money on it as making a whole new rollercoaster. Because of this...
