Looking back at station plans. It appears there will be strip curtains like The Smiler building at every entrance point to the station. With studwork walls at 1.8m surrounding the ride platform/airgates so it'll be quite dark/concealed inside the station unlike today
A fast track queue is also leading to the right hand station (station 2) only. I believe this'll be the main station whereas the left station (the one we normally board) will become possible a VR only dispatch. Exciting.

If I were Alton Towers I'd do a large reveal for this on December 15 when a British Army Major is to be Britain's first astronaut for the ESA (European Space Agency) and on launch day. This in my opinion would be an awesome date to reveal a space themed Air makeover.
I didn't like the idea of all this to begin but its slowly growing on me. The station being enclosed, the new color scheme, the restaurant & VR will all be a breath of fresh air.
