I think it has to do that to appeal to Chessie's family market, Alton's would probably vary wherever it is placed. But I don't think it should replace Enterprise.

I don't think enterprise will be going anytime soon. And if it was to go I have a feeling it would be replaced with a fly away. Like alacazam at pleasure island as there. I think this because there Tom the same company so they could sell enterprise as spares to them and get a discount on the fly away. Also both ride types are about the same size.

I agree with you that it can't be too intense, but it really could have been a bit more forceful and have a bit more speed. Especially on the hill; it almost came to a complete stop. Th13teen is an example of a family ride that gets the balance right. It makes families feel like they've achieved something. Kobra looks like it could do the same, but riding it proves otherwise. :/

I think another Enterprise will be installed in the same spot

I think it'll probably leave in 2014, with the 2015 medium investment being a replacement.

I doubt it will be going for a while but with SW7 coming in 2013 it may happen 2014, that's probably the earliest time though.

Sticking to the cycle, it makes sense it would be in 2014/5.

But that'd be just what they were expecting us to think...

I genrally do think Enterprise will leave the park soon. 2014/2015 is my best bet

I think with more big thrills coming in (13, Terry and SW7), that maybe both rides should go and be replaced by a bigger one. Not huge because of Blivvy but if Towers continuously only add thrill rides, it might as well be Thoroe Park #2!

I do think 2014/2015 should be their time but a new supporting flat would be needed
Theme Parks are my way of life.

In the near future, the only place that I can see it being moved to is a rethemed Adventure Land due to space.

So where are you thinking?

It'll have gone full circle, back to Festival Park!

Can't really see them moving it again as they've made it much more permanent with the pit, removing the base, so it'll just be a lot of hassle to move it and 'build it in' again.

Seriously what's with all the enterprise hate? It's not that bad and fits snuggley in the pit and in that bank of oblivion. I think it should stay.

I think it's more of a age factor as it's a ticking time bomb and people are screaming for the X-Sector spruce up next year that this topic has rekindled when we get some action.
