Also: Stealth is (i assume) Thorpe's new signature ride? Or is it? What is their signature ride? Is Rita Alton's? I don't think it is.

Stealth is TP's signature ride and the entrance is meant to be Stealth track. I don't know what AT's sig is I don't think the have one. It would've been the woodie but it isn't so yeah.

Errm. Kaz. They have just applied for planning permission to build those gates! They will be in place before the new season. The pillars and repainted / new electric gate has already been done, and all its awaiting now is the supports and track itself.

Those plans were submitted within the last week for the entrance. Why submit plans now for something that as you say has been cut because of the budget?

I think you need to check up on your facts before you post.

If you don't believe me, check the date:

It's right at the top.

I like the fact that if you scroll down there's a house whose address is 'Little Britons'.

Genius.

Yes but most of its a lake. Apparently they have some rule that if they fill in part of the lake they have to extend it somewhere else (I'm not sure though - could someone confirm that?)

That is one impressive set of gates. Do you think we could ever see something similar at Alton Towers?

That's pretty much it. For example when the Tidal Wave site was raised out of the lake the lake was extended elsewhere.

Hey guys,

I have a Question, When Stelth is gonna launch is it gonna roll forward out of the station to traffic lights before launch or is it gonna launch straight from station like Rita?

I Hope it follows TTD and Kingda Ka by taking you out of the station a bit before, it would totally add to the suspense. I have been on TTD and when you roll out of the station still makes me poo meself.

One last thing Adz - TTadmin, I know u were trying to prove ur point with the runnymede link, theres peoples names and addresses on there mate which anyone can get access too, if i saw my address on there i would go through the roof. (not being arsy, just puttin me point across).

Cheers pps!
