ERT normally changes a few times throughout the year depending on what rides need more maintenance at certain times of the year. Also they swap them to make it more fair on each ride team.

Yeah Im just saying that even though its been posted on the net that this is the ERT line up, I cannot see it staying like this all season. It will change a few times through the year.

I posted that and removed it within 5 minutes as I had mis-read an old 2009 piece of info on the AT website!

The ERT rides for 2008 and 2009 were set for the whole year - I should think 2010 will be the same.

:D

Really? I went some days and was told it was Spinball and Oblivion only to be told the next visit it was Duel, Nemesis and Air.

Confused! Maybe a member of staff could enlighten? I am sure that ERT last year was Rita, Hex, Oblivion, one of Ent/Submission, Mutiny Bay, RMT and Duel?

I always make a point of checking which rides are on ERT with the staff as I pass through the gates, they generally know if a ride has been taken out of ERT for extra maintenance.

Please be aware that Sonic Spinball has been added to the ERT line-up. See the TowersTimes News Article for further information.

No it hasn't. :P The staff have probably just been opening it early because I noticed that they were often opening it at about 9:30 but it wasn't on official ERT.

Yup, Spinball wasn't originally on the ERT lineup for 2010, but on some days had been opening around 15-30 minutes early. Spinball has been added very recently, in the last few weeks, which is a good move considering the silly queues during the day this ride can get.

During opening weekend Spinbal opened at 9 both days (or would have done if it hadn't broken on the Sunday (it opened at around 1/2 past once it was fixed)).

I'd be surprised of Thirteen was open for ERT this year, they probably just opened it up a bit earlier, which they had been doing at opening weekend.

On Saturday the 17th Spinball operated the full ERT, so it's no surprise it's been officially added to the list. Thirteen although not part of ERT has been building queues during those times and will occasionally open 5 minutes early to get through some of the ERT queue. However due to Thirteens technical issues I have only heard of this happening a few times.
Just an observation I made :wink:

Ok guys, just to confirm, from the horses mouth... Sonic Spinball was a last minute addition to the ERT line up just before the season started. It was never planned to be, but a week before, it was added and has always been meant to open at 9am. Ok it hasn't been able to do it everyday, but maybe that is because Th13teen takes up a lot of the mechanics/electricians time first thing in the morning so just maybe the early morning checks run late!

Rita is not meant to be on ERT. Rides at Alton Towers will open early if they are ready. This applies to Rita and Th13teen, and any other ride.

"Officially", Spinball has only recently been added to ERT hence the News Article on Towers Times. It is not however on the AT Website ERT list.
