Re: Corkscrew Dismantle Pictures

From what I've heard from an ex college who still works there work hasn't even started on the dismantling of the corkscrew yet, however he could be mis-taken, I'll wait until I see photos online :P

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

Sorry to burst your bubble but that patent is an old patent for the flying coaster which has only just become public this year, It has been discussed earlier in the topic but with the huge ammount of pages this topic has create I can understand if you missed it.

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

Those Vekoma trains are just a copy of b&m trains. I mean come on Nemesis is 4 abreast, 8 rows, holding 32 people in all. I seriously doubt if its going to be a WORLD FIRST, it will incorporate these trains.

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

A rumour going round not long ago was that there is loads of space next to where the corkscrew was, and that for the new ride alot of digging was going to have to take place, I know its only a rumour but it does seem fesable as all Secret Weapons have been dug into the ground in one way, shape or fo...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

SW2 was B&M. The plan was without the final inversion at first as B&M didn't want to do it at first but John Wardley insisted that it was to be put in which brought up the plan of SW3 (Nemesis)

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

As excited as I am about this news I'm sceptical about it being a new B&M alot of people at saying that SW3,4 & 5 were B&M but lets not forget that SW1 was Arrow before Towers switched to B&M with SW2.

Whilst I do think nemesis is a hell of alot better than infusion, Infusion isn't that bad however due to being quite tall and broad shouldered I do find the restraints quite uncomfortable. One thing that did surprise me last time I was at AT though was the smoothness of the Corkscrew, I don't know w...

The race was brilliant and brought F1 right back into the positive light a last after all the controvercies of the last few races.
