ok so they are using the extremes towers as a base for the abc vertical dark ride which is cool as why would you build a whole new ride system when you can use part of one you know and understand and that been proven to work.  So take the four towers and add the hardware and software for the abc vertical dark ride good sense all round.

yeah,the dungeons won't have four towers at them for one place so it does probably mean drop towers for alton,I just think a bit of wasted poetential,a drop tower s good but that has nothing to do with nemesis.


I get what your saying but what does a castle madhouse have to do with the story backing the ride, however the ride works and its amazing so it doesn't matter if the ride type doesn't have anything to do with nemesis as the story and theming is what will make this ride.

I have a strong feeling that this new attraction will be much like DLRP Studios ‘Armageddon’ However they will probably have better throughput. I don’t see it being a standard simulator or anything like hex. It has to be rather unique and something like ‘Armageddon’ does get the heart beating, which would fit in with the Forbidden valley theme! Yes another crazy idea, but it surely cannot be a normal sit-down simulator!
I am guessing the current queue to the old attraction will be used? It would make sense, however I am not sure of the scale of this project! Can’t wait to experience it next year! Bring on 2012!

Most of the queue is the old Dynamo queue, yes.

It's not going to be a simulator. It's some sort of tower ride.

Or at least we're 99% sure of that! :P

Don't know about everyone else, but this is a very clever marketing ploy. Eighteen years later, releasing details of the new ride at 18:18 on new years eve. That's smart!

Finally, everyone will find out what the real secret behind this development is.

But not if you have a life and plan to actually celebrate New Years Eve! :lol:

Fortunately, I don't have one of those (thanks, TTF), so I'll probably be there to see it at 18:181 :P

Why does this happen the first NYE that I'm actually doing something! :P

Still I will have access to a computer, this is 10 times more exciting than the prospect of a new year! :D

I guess the quality of what we get will affect our New Year drinking.

If it's good, we can celebratem if it's bad, we can commiserate! :P

You just need to like TowersTimes on Facebook and all details will be posted there as soon as they are announced, then you can go back to your drinking ;)

thats a co-incidence, we find the plans for black hole tent development and within 24 hours the N:WLB gets an update and a very closely timed reveal - hmmm, thats nice timing to take attention away from other news.
