Shame, I can't see it being around much longer.
I’m not sure what is making you say that?
On opening day, Hex was making some unusual noises when the drum got to a certain position during the ride sequence, and I believe it was closed on the Sunday.
I wouldn’t be surprised if there is an issue with the drum that means they are awaiting parts/repairs before the ride can re-open.
Hex is a staple of the Alton Towers line-up, and I can’t see it being removed until it has to be, be it that it’s reached the end of its operational life or it becomes too expensive to maintain and operate.
