You don't need to state that Air isn't a sit down coaster everyone accepts that but Nemesis and Oblivion are clearly sit down coasters

I didn't, it was said that if it has a seat then it must be a sit down and I just gave a couple of examples of where this is not the case.

This is all getting a bit sidetracked so I will state again all SW have seen prototype ride cars ( I know Nemisis was not the first but it was still a prototype when it was conceived.) except th13teen which as Blaze puts it has mine train cars.
So chances are SW7 will also see prototype cars.

I've always thought the RCT3 'drifter' coaster would make an amazing ride, but I can't see it with SW7's track layout.

OK so what sort of prototype cars are we talking here? Just a new Eurofighter design? Because I can imagine that much easier than something akin to the vastly new experiences of inverted cars, inverted flying cars and ultra-wide tiered dive coaster cars we saw on the SWs you mentioned.

Well let me begin my rant. I don't know why they go and get a eurofighter. Is it in competition with its sister park? (Thorpe park:D) + its a vertical drop, :? I mean come on its in X--Sector the home of OBLIVION. Another vertical drop coaster. But. Its just my opinion and I bet they will be it well. Bye:)

It would be competition, but Thorpe park is more or less a 3 hour drive of over 150 miles. So I think they'll be fine, in that aspect. :)

Also, there is no vertical drop on the ride.

Amazing how one page of a website can get you excited but... it has!

I knew this would be along soon. :)

I like the hint of the theme on the website, and I'm guessing it will work the same way as TH13TEEN's did, i.e. Pictures, competitions, wallpapers.

Bring on 2013!

It's not plastered across the main website yet... At least we know what the advertising on the boards around BH tent will look like though...

I thought you photoshopped that for a minute! :P
Strange timing...

That's what I was expected really.
A slight hint of a theme, with advertising.
They'll probably update the banners later in the season with more advertising, and a hint of slogan, like what TH13TEEN had.

I can't wait for this now!

Thanks for the photo!
