'05 to '10, the era of the Big Dive Machines?
UK theme parks from another point of view!

After staying at the park during the summer with my sister and her boyfriend, on the way in, I nearly had a heart attack from what I managed to see new track in the workshop area!
It's a B&M!!! Now I know it is out of focus, but we were in the car entering the park, noticed that a crane was there what I think was dropping some track and supports off.
But that's not all, later on during the night, I sneaked through some bushes to try and get a better look.
That is the best I can get, but hey, it will be a B&M, instead of yet another Vekoma!
All I can say is that this will really be the moment when SAC will answer the wishes of all us fans! Scotland is going B&M!

First and forth-most, I would like to personally congratulate you on the park's 20th year and of your recent sir hood. I will remember the day when I first caught wind of the park during the Summer of 1989, when several of the staff on the park kept talking about a new park opening up in Scotland. Naturally, I was keen to know more about how progress was taking place and for park just starting up during the next year, I was impressed and I could certainly see the park becoming a major player for the other British theme parks.
Over the years, both our parks grew, though we never really had such the time to admire one another's park. Then in that infamous year of 2001, which I certainly can imagine that you shall not be remembering in a hurry, I then discovered that you had an unwanted KMG Afterburner from a blunder in your order. Coincidentally, I was planning on buying one myself for the park, but upon hearing this, I decided to take it off your hands and give it a new home.
Since then we've had a warm relationship between the two parks and even between our two fan bases for the parks, and I can only hope that it will remain the same and that the your park will continue in growing.

However, it has become tired and standing in the way of progress. We understand that the ride has a following and we shall be opening a special final extra day for the ride at the end of this season were riders will have one last ride.
We promise long time fans that we shall see a new ride in it's place for 2012 and that we can assure that it'll be unlike anything else built in this country. And for Tornado, we thank you for your service for the park.

Here we see some of the track here, sorry if it is crappy quality, I was taken it on the phone while I was in a queue driving into the park.
Here are some of the supports.
Finally some of this lot, by this point the traffic starting moving again!
Now here I'm in the cabin area and this is one other shot taking a shot of the workshop area.
On the last day, Here is a good shot of some supports and one peice of the track...no doubt that we are getting another B&M for 2012!

All we can say is that for 2012, prepare for an incredible indoor looping coaster...Scotland's first and the first indoor looping coaster in the UK!
A site that any normal member of the public will have seen this whole year.
Another shot from the air, this thing will be more advance than what old Tornado could've been!
Another shot of this track, the ride will be built first, then the building will go up shortly afterwards...though that is still a secret for what it'll be about!
Finally one last shot from us! Here is one shot of one of the inversions. And as the old saying goes...that's yer lot!
