I know about the path! I'm on about the steps leading down off the path down deep into the valley! :D

Re: The Mysterious Stuff of Alton Towers

Another strange place I always think about is the valley behind the hotels! I've always wanted to go down there, but its always been late in the day or early in the morning when I just wanna get on park!

Anyone got any photos or anything from down there?

Re: Six Dead in Theme Park Accident!

I have to say, the pictures from inside the ride queue line looks quality! It all seems a bit higgledy piggledy at the moment, I've heard all sorts. And that video I wouldn't say is so sick, its just the unnecessary crying at the end. No different to someone doing a video like that for the two tower...

Re: The Mysterious Stuff of Alton Towers

I'm pretty sure you can see it from the road on the way in from stoke way! It's right on the edge of the park [url=http://maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&ll=52.984727,-1.897105&spn=0.001715,0.003449&t=h&z=18" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;]http://maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&...

The Black Hole queue line was awesome! :D

It saddens me so much knowing that we don't have a dark coaster there anymore! :(

Re: Thirteen Live?

SAW: The ride - live! was quite possibly the most "not alive" thing ever... #-o No actors in there, nothing different!

I fail to see how you could make th13teen alive though... add actors? Basically it'll be like opening if they do.

All a scam to make people ride it more tbh...

Re: The Future of the Blackhole Tent

I want to know why people think it's a good idea to put a flat ride in there? How many dark flats do you know of? Apart from drop towers, mad houses and motion simulators? :| See my point? Flat rides are meant to be spectators rides, they cover a small space and attract the most attention due to the...

Re: New Water Coaster 2012

Yeah hopefully we will get another ride, even if it is a decent flat ride that is themed well for Dark Forest or The BH tent. What would be the point in that? :? X-Sector is the other side of the park, with a completely different theme! What we need is a ride similar to Black Hole to replace it, NO...

Re: New Water Coaster 2012

As nice and as amazing as this idea is (the thought of AT having a Poseidon... mmh!)...

Where's my dark coaster to fill the Black Hole tent? :evil: Why rip up another ride when there's space to be used?

Just read up a bit about it. There will be an inclusion of switch tracks and apparently they're highly customisable! So... I guess you could make Th13teen! :D

Judging by those screenshots it looks pretty much the same as NL1... Needless to say I'll still buy it when it comes out, but still... It hardly looks "Next Gen"! :| Hoping for some decent coasters on there. Hopefully a Mack Launched Mega Coaster, B&M Dive and Flyers etc! :D Also, the ...

Am I the only person who doesn't really mind changing to the Euro anyway? I'm voting Lib Dems for a number of reasons, most of which have been covered in this topic! The thing is, we keep Labour in, and things won't really change or if they do it'll be at a slow pace. We get the Tories in and the ri...
