John, I can't thank you enough for all you've provided us with.
You built the foundations of the Alton Towers we have today. If it wasn't for the likes of Nemesis and Oblivion, we wouldn't have the magical theme park we have today. You've always been consistent and committed to your work, as we've seen with The Smiler, and we all respect you a hell of a lot for it. You've had every coaster enthusiasts dream job, and honestly I can't pick out one thing you've done wrong. Long live Alton Towers and everything you've given it!
I'm sure you can retire happily knowing you've had a career of success, if only I could get a job like yours...a real inspiration to all at TTF! You might have stopped making rides now but what you made will never be forgotten!
Wishing all the best for your future,
Pete (or if you've seen Breaking Bad...just call me Heisenberg
p.s. Merlin better continue your legacy or they'll have TTF to deal with!
