Nothing? It'd be like any other ride on it.

I'm betting a few years ago they would have done something like this ;)

Prffft. I'd pay if it was under a tenner, but otherwise I'd leave it. The AT site is running a competition though!

Nothing to be honest. It would nice, but it's not worth paying for. I will be there though at close.

Nothing. They'd have to pay me.

Lol in all seriousness though I wouldn't pay a penny for the privalege, seeing as I'm not the biggest fan of the ride, and being the last to ride it would mean nothing to me.

:D

I would probably pay about £15 for the last ride. It would be cool to know you were one of the last people to ride such an iconic coaster, but I don’t think it is worth any more than £15.

Nowt.

It would mean nothing to me, especially when you can ride earlier in the day for free.

Nothing.

Because the ride is sh*t.

And I don't personally attribute sentiment to a hunk of steel.

Anything up to £100 it's really worth that. It's my 4th favourite ride in the park and I can't believe it's going.

And I missed the competition :cry:

I would pay £0! Reason being because:

A) The ride is pants! Though thats not to say I dont appreciate it or what its done for Alton Towers or even this county's themepark industry for that matter. But, it IS pap!

B) Alton Towers rip us off enough as it is, so NO I wouldnt pay. Please dont give them more ideas lol!

I'd give anything to go on Corkscrew for one last time, but I'm really annoyed that I'm not able to be up there tomorrow for it, mainly because I live down in Cornwall! It's such a shame that I won't be there, but I hope that anyone who goes on Corkie tomorrow will have a fantastic time.

RIP Corkscrew
