So were placing bets on the opening date? OK I'll go for open on Wednesday 5th but with problems, then fully open on Thursday 6th.

Yes as stated it looks very.. plain for a Alton Towers email and pretty poor design.

Also note "14 Looping Ride" This is incorrect as there are many rides that "loop" 14 times. Official Alton Towers emails would say rollercoaster.

Must be fake!

See that's what I thought as it looked a bit copied and pasted but it looks like its opened on an iOS phone and sometimes bits and bobs are missing. I've checked emails and junk folders on my accounts and had nothing. Guessed if this one person had an email there must be someone who may have received the same thing here but if not, again that points towards it being fake. Thought I'd share anyway just in case :)
Also 'for free' thing :-/ ok I think it's fake now lol

Gahh the more I look at it the more I'm thinking I'm a douche for getting excited over it ahahah

to be fair people on this forum outright called me a liar when i dropped the "will not be open on the 23rd" bombshell .... and i had proof. don't be so hasty with words. it's not polite, perhaps it is testing again.


Yes but this is very different, you had proof, this is just an enthusiast getting to happy and ends up lying to have wierd proof that he thinks is funny but is stuff we know... It's stupid

Sorry, but whether you believe it is true or not, there's no need for you to be so rude about it.

removing the trim and moving the brake blades will be helpful if reports of problems are correct but i think the new car design is still are poor untested choice as all other models of this coaster system only run 8 seat cars

It appears someone has been messing around with the article, as it's status is shown as both Broken and SBNO!
