Are you a dunse teenager or what? For staters have you ever been on Xcelerator. Surely if you have you'd spell it correctly And of course you don't get air time on a top hat. Have you seen how much the train slows. No thrill is to be had on the top end of that elimant at all, just some nice views . And statist's proove nothing, so stop dismissing my opinion. Rita's launch is tonnes better than Xcelerator's. It's launch isn't boring, but not as fun as the Queen of Speed's at all.
Yes I have been on Xcelarator (twice) and i got loads of airtime. You get airtime on Oblivion and that stops at the top of the drop so of course you'll get airtime on Xcelarator. Fine you have your opinion but it was the way you said 'boringly stuck to your seat' which to me means that you are saying the launch is boring.
Let's not be thick.
Any Top Scan couldn't beat the RMT in my eye's. Ride's aren't just about intensity. Sure, flats can be very intense but that's not the point. A good ride is not about a thrill, but an experience. Look at Air!
Flat are fair rides, nothing more and nothing less. Good Rollercoaster's are real rides (and I fine "ride" as an understantment).
Disagree. Flats are equally important as rollercoasters they are what AT lacks completely. All they have is a poorly run topspin (which I hear pales in comparison to a fairground version), and an enterprise. Plus a well run and present fair ground ride will give an equal experience to Air. So your harsh dismisal of flat rides is silly to say the least.
Oh purlease. OK, let's have Alton rip out all of it's family/kiddy rides and aspects and name the park an "Ultra Super Xtra Thrill Park" shall we .
This is an exaggeration Thorpe has only taken out Flying Fish (RIP), Eclipse (which nobody liked) and model world. Only one of these attractions was really anything special. So I don't think Thorpe have 'ripped out' the family rides. So as I said Thorpe is a great thrill park and the visitor numbers this year prove this.
