Seriously? Are some people ever happy? What has everyone been asking for the last few years? An overhaul of x-sector. So they give us an 8 inversion coaster and spruce up enterprise a little bit. Did it ever occur to you that maybe they didn't finish enterprise so they could get it up an running for the 2012 season, instead of sitting there SBNO for the rest of the year.
I understand your point big al, this topic is quite a good one, but Chris is moaning that they've actually given one of the rides attention, yes it needs more than a lick of paint, but like I said, would rather it be SBNO for the season?
You really get under my skin with you constant nit picking.
I think the gondolas look great and they are all the colours of X-Sector -
Orange - Oblivion,
Blue - Submission,
Grey - Enterprise,
Black - X-Sector as a whole.
I apologize (once again) for my apparent overbearing negativity. You might question why I am even a fan of Alton Towers given the nature of the majority of my responses to park developments but believe me I love the place as much as most of you do. This is why it is painful to see the park go the way it is going.
I can appreciate that they may not have had time to complete the full refurbishment, but there is no evidence (or is there?) to suggest that this is the case and to me it highlights once more their inability to finish something to a good standard.
In my opinion, I do not believe the ride looks good in multicolours. It was given a green colour scheme which looked good and all it needed was the frame cleaned and repainted. Was that much to ask from a refurbishment which was supposed to be 'extensive'? However, if it was the case it wasn't fully completed so they could reopen the ride, then that would be understandable.
From what I have seen, Submission looks like it has received a new paint job on its bodywork and restraints and it does genuinly look good, so they deserve a well done for that.
With regards to your point RustyRider, a new ride in the area does not necessarily mean X-Sector will receive an overhaul. And, given the theme which the new ride appears to have, a multicoloured Enterprise does seem very much at odds.
All I did was express my opinion. After all, the first post did say "post your thoughts here". So I did.
