Below is a pic of the festival park aka ug land - area of the 1988 park map (used this map because it's clearer to see than newer ones). Now a couple of years ago (during the woodie plan days) coasterforce did a video and some how managed to get out of the park and in again. somewhere along where I've drawn the red line on the map because it was the other side of the trees and on the video you could see/hear corkscrew.
Now I'm not saying to enter the park/RITA Site because thats not allowed but could someone with a camera or better a video camera try and get to this area?
With there being no leaves on the trees I think this is the best place to get pics/videos during the closed season if anyone could find there way down there?

What do think?


I can pick out EXACTLY where you mean. That path starts at this point:

http://www.towerstimes.co.uk/history/construction/rita/ritarl/20094.jpg

And it leads all the way around to the older ug-land entrance accesible from the gardens. That path is fenced off there, but it is accesible from the gardens at numerous points. If you can get on that path then your sorted!

Finaly ive just rembered what i was going to ask. Seeing as Rita is taking up more room and UG-LAND has been made a bit bigger dose that mean Alton Towers will be alowd more people in the park as there is now a bit more space :?: :?:

What do you mean??? Since when did they have a limit, and how is a small extra bit of space gonna help??

Well every park has a limit to how many people they can have depending on the amout of space they have so i though if UG-LAND had been made bigger maybe the amount of people would go up abit.

Well even if they did have a problem with space, 10m isn't gonna make any difference.

It was said that this was a storage shed for UG "big cat." For the fire engine and things like that.

Tis a lovely shed. Johnny Vaughn would be proud

Its a shame that due to the local residents that rit coulnt be taller. A top hat would have been nice in the ride. But still they've done well all the same. 8) 8) 8)

Tombola, Theres been a few new topics about Rita since this one stopped so you can post in there if you like but all i will say is that if Rita had a tophat,yes it would be cool and very fun but then it would be like any other launch coaster thats being built now. What Alton Towers have is great as its different which is what i love about it. Stick a tophat on it and it becomes just another launched coaster realy.
