Air Tunnel 1 Concept

Wed Apr 12, 2006 10:22 pm

Hi all

Ive put together a concept theme for airs first tunnel to get rid of the garage look :)
The idea is tunnel 1 is themed like a cave keeping in context with some of airs rock themeing around the staiton area and queue beginning.
Have a look and I know the waterfall is terrible will work on it :D
Enjoy

that is a fantastic idea, i had an idea similar to that but not with the projections of the air logo into the water, and the water fall is great! Small idea though: when i thought of it, you know you can get the misters that you put into ponds and a thick layer of mist comes across the surface, why not add that, it again gives to the airy theme.

Great work. . . but correct me if i'm wrong but the whole 'assume the postion. . . now fly' happens just as you leave the station!

Cool idea! if AT can get their act together and do something to it it would make my day!

Yeah, thats a fantastic idea. Alton Towers really need to add something here, and I think even just a small amount of rock themeing in that tunnel would make a massive difference to the ride experience.

That looks incredible! Great work. I with Alton would do this. I think the sign and lighting is good but i doubt Alton would add water for H&S. Maybe water with perspex above it? Could work? And support struts holding it a foot from the floor/

Amazing work there toxic. I would love to see something like that. But I would be overjoyed if alton just done a few things to make it better for example,

Paint the walls
Add Lighting like on the advert
Add some rocks or water features.

They need to sort out that air tunnel. It dont cost much to add some rocks and have a lick of paint. Plus im sure they could afford the lighting.

I'm impressed! Hope your reading AT this is exactly what AIR needs to really get it going. Agree with titler on the H&S issues, but with the precautions you stated these should be met. Great idea TOXIC, stick it in a cheeky email to them :lol:

That is a seriously cool design. :D
Well done, and I hope they do consider it. Surely it wouldn't cost that much to implement?

Toxic that idea is brilliant! I was so impressed. I can just imagine it right now! All I can really say is WOW!

Why don't you send your idea into Alton Towers, like have a meeting with them, show your work and you never know they may like it and actually do it to the ride. I really think you should consider this!

I think Air needs more than just a bit of theming in the tunnel. It needs all its originally planned theming put on (what ever its planned theme was meant to be.) It needs a story explaining this theme. It needs a proper theme I bet it was going to have an exellent theme seeing as it was designed by JW.

WOW I love that idea you should send it to the Towers and see what they think of it. Although it would probably never happen because of money and the ride would be down for ages while its in the making etc but its a fantastic idea.

What did you use to make that ?

Air : 4

Dobtful you'll see a lake under the Chain lift as that would involve alot of landscaping, which can't really be done.


If you see the ride the water trough is already there under the lift hill just needs themeing to look like a spring :)

Have a look next time you go

and I used 3d studio max 8 to model it.
The ride wouldnt be down long they could do it in the winter the rock themeing can be built off area and put in in stages its not that hard and not that expensive even if the water was not there heavey smoke down lift hill and then lights that look like shimmering water would work to they just dont want to spend the money simple as.
