They're either hiding something in the building or hiding a chain snap. That's my guess! 13 days until I find out for myself!

Well guess it's now down to Blue Peter 5:30pm Thursday 16th CBBC channel 613 (Sky)

It's nice to see it in motion but think we all expected a bit more.

In some ways it was better than the footage of Thirteen. I think the park have learnt from that and just teased us instead of showing us everything  :)

Just been on the alton towers facebook page. After showing the footage on daybreak it looks like a lot of viewers now have a negative view of the ride, sayin "Looks poo, and i thought this was a world first blah blah blah"

I really hope these idiots dont think its the whole ride haha. :roll:
:D

^^ Because every member of the general public are expected to know about a new rollercoaster  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

This was the first appearance for a lot of people and it's completely understandable why people may feel underwhelmed by what they saw (or didn't as the case may be).

I feel like I'm spamming you guys, just noticed this on the Daily Mail site.

Media attention is definitely mounting.

The off ride footage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlYuU-ACDiQ) is really cool, but it has also revealed the intro to the sountrack we first heard in the game and I have to say I really like it!! :D
Smile. Always. :moj
