Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion

ha, he wouldn't last 2 seconds in the armed forces so I think he should remove the combats straight away, anyway the queue in the plans don't go anywhere near the lift or first drop so I'm hopeful that it will be themeing that surrounds the lift and drop.

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion

It will only have about 4 cars of 4 people each so to reach 1200pph, there needs to be three trains at least, and if there are that many, one train can not spend too long on a block or trains will stack around the circuit, stopped on the lifts, on the brake runs in the stations and where ever else....

Re: 2010: Spinball Whizzer Re-Theme!

I'm a massive sonic fan, way back from when I had it on built in on my sega master system, and I think if towers did re-theme spinball into sonic spinball then I think it would be awsome as sonic has such a huge mass appeal, its something towers could do well as they could draw past inspiration from...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

Why is it that nowadays there are a couple of people who are intent to ruin things for everyone else, If someone has told you something about this ride that no-one else knows about and you know that Alton is trying to keep secret then why reveal it to everyone on an internet forum, you are openly op...

Re: How?

The easliest way for them to clear that car would have been to remove the up-rise wheels which run under the track and lift the car off with a crane. They do this every year to the RMT when they remove the train from the track for annual maintenance.

Re: F1 Season 09/10

Thank god the wins system has been dropped, It is a rediculous system which doesn't allow the true champions to so there class and consistency. I am hoping that brawn gp do well, they had really good testing and I hope they can carry this on into the new season.

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

Thing is the locals complain but what are their houses built on, I bet afew of the houses built there are built over historic sites as well because Alton castle is just above them and that castle must have has defensive postions in village so I really can't see why they have to complain about Alton ...

I'm surprised and glad it not B and M, which some people were saying and hoping it would be, There are enough B and M's on the park, I really don't think we need another, anyway the plans look interesting, the main drop is quite large and the hill after the main drop is only just half its size meani...

Is it really worth dragging this all out? It's getting really tiring - leroy's post above show's he's obviously trying to move on. It seems like people other than him are prolonging the bickering. I was just refering to the retort he made on the last page, I can see hes trying to move on from the a...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

After looking at the visual impact plans, I'm not sold on the ECC's drawings, they look to different, for example the visual impact shots show that there is alot more track in the woods, and the ECC drawing just looks to plain and basic, The 2 just don't match up. Looking at the plans certain parts ...
