In fairness to adam_ dan, he did say that, its just now that more infor has come to light it seems that once again adam is getting flack because he has to do it in cryptic way to try ant not get his leak at the offices at AT into trouble and jeopdising their job. This has been pointed out before, oh adn adam also put it up about the launched coaster before taht was put up on ata... sorry to burst bubbles here.

dont know how important / relevant, this information is as I have been away for a couple of days, but whilst driving on the road past the Alton Towers entrances this morning (09/sep), I saw a number of civil engineers / workmen in yellow jackets at the gates closest to the black hole (where the famous pile of rubble is,) more importantly they were offloading plant (JCB's e.t.c) from the back of a number of lorries / trucks and taking them into the park. - I believe that the service road behind this gate lead up to the back of Cred Street / Ugland. :D :D :D :D

I'll think you will probably find that the coaster in Ug-land will be a Booster Bike that is shorter than the one we have plans for in Ug-land.

When I recieved that plan the person told me that there was another one in development as well for Ug-land and that they hadn't deceided which one to build. Now its quite clear they have decided which one they want to build the only problem being the person told me it was going to be quite a bit shorter than the Gloomy Wood one which is a shame because the Towers need a longer coaster.

I would take this as 99% what is going to happen, the person that gives me the info isn't a ride op and doesn't work on park so this isn't some work of mouth gossip.

Coaster Footers anyone? now didnt Kylies Kitty and me say the 10th! Although that could be for something else, might not be anything at all. should be interesting to watch out for.

I heard something along those lines. sounds good anyway.
they hadn't deceided which one to build.

I was told it was the fact they were deciding which area needed it more and which one would be more financialy[sp] viable.
it was going to be quite a bit shorter than the Gloomy Wood one

Not really a bad thing. look at how short Nemesis is and then compare it to a longer coaster. could go both ways really. i would much prefer a shorter more intense coaster than a longer drawn out ride. (sounds like the dire settings on Samurai at Thorpe Park)
which is a shame because the Towers need a longer coaster.

SW6/SW7

Same here. amoungst various other little things for next year this is apparantly what is happening.
the person that gives me the info isn't a ride op and doesn't work on park so this isn't some work of mouth gossip.

Arent they great! :D

Thanks for sharing that with us!

No, I can safely say (as a regular on both boards) that the news of this coaster came out on ATA well before you released any information.

I think it was as mutch of a rumour as yours is, as neither of them have been given a source. But I can assure you Dan's came first, as when you mentioned it on here I had already heard about it from ATA.
Edwardo..... move me!

Sighhh does it really matter who told what first?! The fact is we are all greatful for the information provided by everyone, regardless of who told us first!

So the booster bikes are going in Ug Land? I thought it was meant to be a Thunder Looper type ride not a continuous circuit coaster? Also does this mean GW will not see a new ride now?

According to Dan yes.

By the looks of it yes.
Also does this mean GW will not see a new ride now?

Probably not.

If the station is going where the big skull is surely this new coaster and the Corkscrew will look a little odd being so close to each other? Maybe they are thinking in the future when the Corkscrew will be removed?

From the plans i have seen i can safely say it does not have inversions.

Hmm no comment ay Adam? :wink: I reckon then after the 2005 season Corkscrew might be removed, I spose it could be moved elsewhere - I know this has been mentioned before.

I would like a Thunder Looper type ride at Alton, oh well maybe one will come in the future...

The plans that have goen round are these for the booster bikes in GW, however, the guy that I spoke to on the night of the Alton Towers Naked Riders rollercoaster thingy said he couldnt comment in the one in GW but that the footings for the launched coaster for UgLand will start to go in on 10th September:

Could the booster bikes be going in UgLand afterall or could this be a bluff?

There doesn't seem enough room in UG land to build any decent sized coaster without removing corkscrew
