The Future of the Blackhole Tent

Tue Nov 01, 2005 7:54 pm

Well its been shown that the blackhole tent will stand for another year! Nothing will be happening to it this year.SO what can we expect from it in 2007? Its quite obvious NEW ATTRACTION IN THE TENT FOR 2007!

what do you think it will be? An "experience" ride like ALIEN? OR a indoor flat ride thats in the dark? Or some TOTALLY different?!

Discuss.

What makes you think that nothing will be happening this year, no one knows just yet. Nothing might happen but something could and were has it been shown that the black hole tent will be there in 2006 :?: :)

Yeah, this is true. You can't say its obviously going to be the spot of the new for 2007 attraction, because this the exact same thing we were all saying for 2006, when early this year when the park decided it wasnt to open for 2005.

But, afterall there is also a good chance it will be the site of something new for 2007, as i can't see Alton letting a prime site go unused for a third year running. I would preferablly like to see a major new flat. They may be old but Topscan's still rate amongst my favourites, or maybe be even a Tango. These are still new on the fairground circuit, and as far as im aware, no theme park as one yet.

Nothing will be added to the x-sector this year. That is a fact.

Well, yeah. That is well established. However, somewhere above I'm sure it mentions 2007 :wink:

X-sector plans are in the pipeline. But for 2006 we have Charlie and the Choclate Factory to look forward to!

One word: Ropers. Nothing will be built there for a while if ever. Unless it's heavily enclosed. Imagine a Top Scan in the dark :D

The tent will not stay, it will either be sold with the Black Hole ride itself, or demolished.

Oh it's a pipeline coaster! (joke! :lol: )
But seriously it's good that the park is constantly thinking about new things and future attractions. Does management ever mention these boards as sources of ideas etc.? It would be quite interesting to know.

Yes, you are right.

Nothing will be added in the x-sector for 2006 but with some luck 2007 will be the year.

I do hope that they remove the canopy, as that will always be remembered as part of the Black Hole attraction and nothing else would look right in it and it would come across as 'making do'.

I'd like to think that a more substantial building will be put in it's place containing a Spiderman-esque type attraction.

I think that the buyers of the ride would do well to take the tent with them it is so much better in the dark, and as it fits perfectly with the coaster they would be mad to not have it aswell.
If the tent does stay then i'm expecting some short term money making attraction for next season, laser quest or some sort of games centre, then a new ride for 2007.

:D :D

I'd have thought it would be a bad idea to keep the tent, as it would make advertising whatever attraction is in there much more difficult. (It it looks like the BH, the it is the BH, etc.)

Plus I reckon the would probably use the land more productively without the tent.

Something could very well happen in 2006... no-one knows! We are apparently getting a sub-attraction of £90,000 in 2006. Unlikley though, I agree.

I'm starting to believe the woody is on it's way for perhaps 2007, but if not I'm not all that sure that we'll see a BH replacement, but if infact we do I really hope it's not just some "Flat In tEh dark tent r0x0rz". I'd much prefer a thought out dark ride (5D?) that will exude some more depth into X-Sector... with a new non-tent enclosure.
