Put a year to when each of the 8 rollercoasters at Alton Towers will be either destroyed or SBNO. Nobody is expected to be correct, this is just a bit of fun, but some reasoning would be nice.
My predictions:Sonic Spinball - 2016
The SEGA contract will run out at the end of 2016, and Merlin will get rid.Runway Mine Train - 2018
Will hopefully go in a few years time to make way for SW 9 or 10 The Smiler - 2020
Quite simply, the smiler will crumble before it's taken down. At some point in 2020, after 7 years of operating, it will completely break. A death trap waiting to happen.Air - 2025
A great coaster, but will disappear soon after it's 20th, deemed not to fit the Forbidden Valley and that it has now become too roughRita - 2030
Rita will stay for a while, but will need to be upgraded due to the simplicity of it.TH13TEEN - 2035
It's hard to say, but I think it will stay until we have some other freefall drop coasters that outdo it. But, as it's just approaching it's 4th birthday, it is not time to say goodbye yet.Oblivion - 2040
Oblivion will be allowed a 40th anniversary before it is decided that a dive machine this basic needs to be upgraded.Nemesis - 2050
The beast should comfortably see her 50th birthday, before they will have to do something with her. Yes, we will riot, but all good things come to an end.
