Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Lift 2 has always been really loud from what I remember, it seems unlikely that they would have swapped the speakers round when they could simply turn down the volume on one of them. In my opinion, the really loud audio is what makes the ride more memorable.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Nemesis has developed a slight rattle depending on where you sit on the train, but it's nothing too noticeable compared to once you've been on other rides in the park. With Nemesis it's always easier to ride once you've been on a couple of times because you learn when to move with the train as oppos...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

In 2016 the hotel fastrack had about 10 attractions on it and it was for big new rides like Smiler/ Galactica as well :/

Re: Flamingo Land

They'll just want to be promoting their new ride, I get it all the time from them on the radio. It'll be back to normal in a couple years.

Believe me, it's actually horrific on the skyride in the heat, in school trip season when you went it was reaching upwards of 40°C in the gondolas.

Re: SW9

It almost definitely won't be in 2020, that's only 2 years after Wicker Man. Major coasters are opened roughly every 4 years ('94, '98, '02, '06 '10, '13, '18) so logic would dictate that the next major coaster will arrive in 2022. I'd argue that this will be a thrill coaster as it will be 9 years a...
