Re: Drayton Manor General Topic

I suppose one inversion could be used as they classed klondike as f...

Re: Ice Skating this Xmas at Alton Towers.

its a step in the right direction but i wudnt say it would be a specific reason for people coming

especially with the snowdome being not that far down the road where its only about £6 for 3 hours of ice skating where there is 2 rinks and the ice track aswell

Re: Drayton Manor General Topic

The duel launched is happening though not for a couple of years and it will include inversions as confirmed in the interview with the MD.

This ride is looking more likely to be something along the lines of a halfpipe coaster.

Re: G-Force (Drayton Manor) restraints

I have never had any problems with the restraints on g-force dont really know what people go on about when they say this - Just do it up untill your comfortable with it and so there is a little bit of room incase it does tighten a notch.
