Submission is old, rubbish, the controls are scrambled, and one car doesn't work. It physically hurts you so just get rid and get a new better mini-thrill :P :P

Put Ripsaw there, then it will leave space in Forbidden Valley for a station for a cross valley coaster, or an Intamin Zac Spin (coaster corner), unlikely as Drayton Manor have one.

Maybe they will put in a new restaurant there. A little like this one: Image

No thank you.

With fried chicken next door, they really don't need another restaurant there. They might do it, but I think it would be a bad decision.

Thanks for the feedback ILC. From what I can gather, most people think that TFCC is overpriced for a little meal.

I cannot give feedback on FCC, because I've never been there, but I can tell you, the one at Chessington is a bit overpriced, but gets long queues and is better than KFC. Of course, that's nothing to say the same goes for the one in X-Sector.

If AT wanted a Ministry of Joy restaurant, they could just refurbish FCC.

You've just shot yourself in the foot, my friend.

If Towers were to open a MOJ restaurant, they would want it to be big to maximise capacity, and ultimately, profits. Therefore, a small area like the Submission site would not be their ideal place for a MOJ eatery.

So the fact that Submission was small is actually a knock back to your theory about the restaurant going in.

The Rehydrator is small, that is in the X-sector. That is why I think they could fit something like that in there.

If there are two places to eat in X-Sector why do we need a restaurant in the first place?

I have to admit it sounds weird 'Submission used to be located in X-Sector'. Not that I'll miss it terribly (It's sad when any ride leaves really, except one or two). It was painful!!!

It would be brill if in the space between Feb half term and opening day a new flat was quickly constructed but as that's unlikely due to little time and CBeebies Land, a quick, cheap and TEMPORARY (emphasis on temporary) stall/attraction would be good to fill the gap until either a new flat is built or Enterprise is removed and a big new flat is built. I would love a ride like an S&S Screamin' Swing, a KMG Afterburner, a Fabbri Evolution (as it's the smaller version) or a Fabbri Top Swing. Although most are too tall so unlikely.

They could even construct an indoor maze like The Sanctuary on the site and put new flats elsewhere (Dark Forest). The indoor maze could either be the introduction to Ministry of Joy getting you ready for The Smiler. Or it could be a test after The Smiler to make sure you have been corrected properly. If the latter was used, Oblivion could be re-themed (orange painted yellow) to be The Ministry of Joy's way of disposing those who haven't been corrected properly. This would give a really good overall theme for the area.

I really wasn't a fan of Submission (Being a Male I found it to be very painful!) but I'm sad to see it leave X-Sector. I'd love AT to replace it with a new version of The Sanctuary to support the theme of The Smiler

I'm thinking next year they'll probably take Enterprise out (it's like 30 years old now or something?) and like other people have said, construct a larger flat. Possibly a KMG Afterburner, sort of 'near misses' with Oblivion when it exits the tunnel. Would be quite fun I think.

I have seen them pics thanks that's why I asked if there was any pics taken from the ground since Sat?
I always said that when X sector first opened the restaurant should have stayed where it was and the games machines didnt need moving to a bigger building.
