They must have been testing the hub on enterprise with all the new components before attaching arms... sad to see rehydrators orange bits havent been painted...

I think that they may just change the orange and grey paint job to Yellow and black, but who knows? They may have something else in store...

Weve already come the conclusion that the colours will be
The Smiler : Black & Yellow
Oblivion: Black & Orange
Submission: Black & Green?
Enterprise: Black & Blue?

(could have the last 2 mixed up)

Oblivion

Has nobody thought of these two factors, which IMO make the ride;

a) Water Vapour/Spray @ Entry/Exit Holes - Are AT considering fixing / reinstalling this feature, for this coming season? To my knowledge this feature has not functioned for several years now, yet I always thought something like this added to the ride experience. Opinions?... Information?...

b) Voice Recording @ Peak/Plummit - I cannot recall the last time that I heard this whilst on the ride; so are AT going to be sorting this feature of the ride out, too? Opinions?... Information?...

Thanks, M

With regards to the mist, I would hope that they sort that out. The voice recording at the top of the drop is something which has been discussed many times, and AT had to stop playing it as it caused too much noise for the 'neighbours' - riders could be heard screaming when the recording played. Therefore, I find it unlikely that it will return.

I'm sure the entry mist was going when I was there last season.

Edit: although it wasn't very good, if I recall correctly

I think it still works, just not all the time and not as well as it once did.

The mist has worked fine for several years now, I'm not sure how you could miss it. It is turned on every day as part of the ride's start-up procedure. Whether it is as thick as it used to be is a matter of opinion, but it has been functioning properly for ages and still looks fantastic.

I think what I was getting at is that these days - or past several years - the mist has not been as good as this;

Sorry for not being as clear as I should have been, peeps.

The mist was definitely completely switched off on oblivion when I last visited at the beginning of scarefest, it was weird, it didn't take you breath away like it usually does when you pass through it :\

It was working during the normal season when I visited though but not to a great standard :(

I thought that they were working last season.... Isn't it just a matter or public demand as to whether both run or not?

What is the point? That's just money wasted. Any logical person wouldn't.
