I think what we sometimes forget is that we are enthusiasts, therefore we are more cynical about rides, changes, spec etc.
What we must remember is that families with 1.4m riders, who may visit one time a year, will find this a truly unique and magical experience, just as we did on our first visits to parks.
I was an Air fan, but I really think it is a good addition to Alton's lineup which rejuvenates a ride which otherwise may have been removed or sold on in a couple of years time. I'm all for keeping coasters/experiences but also adding new attractions instead of remove and build. This way the park can grow. The audio is brilliant and the VR (when not analysed) is good. Of course I could look for errors, but Towers is all about escapism by letting your imagination go wild! Sometimes we have to submerge ourselves in the theme.
Of course it is not to everyone's taste, but it is really interesting to read everyone's thoughts
