I wouldn't go as far to say Spinball is a 'classic', it's a fun ride and good for the family, however, I don't think it's potential was fully explored. :| The colour scheme is also one of the worst in the park (If we forget about Cred St. that is!)

The new Ug Land is a vast improvement on the last (because of Rita), I just wish they had spent more time planning the layout of the area :roll:

The tent will not stay, it will either be sold with the Black Hole ride itself, or demolished.

The Magic Of The Monorail

When you first think of the Monorail you think of it as just a mode of transport, a way of getting you into the park, and true it isn't the most intense or the most exciting, but for shear magic, the Monorail wins hands down. Any hardcore fan of the towers can relate to the pure excitement that is g...

I find what they play now really annoying when you hear it so many times whilst queueing for the front row. I can't imagine how annoying the same lines would get if you were a ride op hearing it hundreds of times a day - particularily with the extra lines that used to be used. Still, it can't be ha...

Just remember that Alton are spending £4-5million on this which is the same amount they spent on hex, so i'm pretty sure this ride is going to be better than what many are expecting :)

Has anyone got any idea why RITA was not made faster, i mean, if AT were going to build RITA, which isnt the fastest accelerating coaster in the world, why didnt they make it the fastest accelerating coaster in the world? THEN it would be something special. But as you say, its just another launched...

I think 2001's map was pretty good:

2004 could've been a good map had they tried harder with Spinball Whizzer,

But the new map is a little poor for a theme park of alton's quality :|

Cred Street is the tackiest part of the park, and needs to be completely rethemed in my view. That pink elephant really needs to go along with the colour scheme going on in Cred Street, :|
