Re: Oakwood

As a dedicated Alton Towers community I'd hope you would hear it here first if that was true! Every coaster comes to the end of its life at some point, but Spinball, and any Maurer spinning coaster is far cheaper to replace in parts than other coasters. It was only a few years ago that large parts o...
