Might be believing too too much, but based on the fact that Shaun is gonna reveal something in 3 mins?

Dunno, I reckon it could be true.

B&M?!

and

Rita : Green Track!

and

Intamin are making a brand new roller coaster for the black hole tent?!



Opinions, Shawn bravo if your right, but if this has come from AT Staff (apart from management) it sounds like someones pulling your leg but we shall see!

The only believable part is about Rita being re-painted. I'm still certain it won't be a B&M and I really do not see Alton getting two coasters in one year, think how much it would cost. I think someone might be having Shawn on here.

B&M! COMMON! Haha, that better be true because if it is.... my interest in the towers has suddenly reemerged!

WOAH.

I wasn't expecting that tbh.

'very' reliable source who we don't know but:

> B&M manufacturing SW6
> Rita complete repaint & retheme
> Intamin Rollercoaster in Black Hole tent

Come on, surely that cannot be true?

Right... The sad thing is that we're gonna have to wait until Autumn when construction is well underway. Also he doesn't know who the source was but it's very reliable :?

If it is true... I'm SO happy! FINALLY a ride in the Black Hole tent! :D And as for it being B&M... wtf? thats all i can think of atm.

2 new coasters... I must admit... does seem way too good to be true.

If this is true though 2010 is going to be a belter of a year! :shock:

I don't think Shawn would try and hoax us. I think someones having him on, remember he hasn't actually cited any evidence for this apart from a "reliable source". A well informed staff member having a laugh? Didn't someone also mention about Roland being on park today?

I was kind of hoping for some HARD EVIDENCE.

I really don't think that we should be getting excited about Sanbrookes little video there.

When was the last time an established theme park opened two major coasters in one year, has it even happened?

This is surely too good to be true, the only part that seems even vaguely likely is the rita re-paint.

I'll apologize to Leroy when we know if it is a B&M or not, I still don't think it will be. Lets put it like this, have Alton got the money for a new B&M coaster with a worlds first element and good theming, as well as a new Intamin in the BH tent, No. B&M and Intamin are pretty much the two most expensive coaster manufacturers, this really can't be true as it just doesn't seem viable. I'm only believing things that we actually here from Alton Towers about SW6, there's been too many "wind ups" to belive anything else.

Good evening all, Shawn is absolutely right as i've been telling you all. When I first heard from my bro about it being B&M I was sceptical myself, so I took it upon myself to email the major contenders for SW6. I got emails back from everyone bar B&M denying their involvement. I'm not a gambling man either hence why I didn't take you up on that offer ;)

Magic Mountain once planned to build three major rollercoasters in one year.
