Does anybody know whats happening with the court case???

Hi, does anybody know what the current situation with the Ropers court case. I know back in 2012 they could take AT to the high court but haven't heard anything since. I presume they've come to their senses and dropped it, lost or are building up a case to come back with a bang (in their eyes). I do...

Then AT should deffo do that, with the whole back story of being dragged into TDF "against your will". Rita would fit in perfectly then

Re: The advantages and disadvantages of SW's

I think AT over hyped the world's first with The Smiler. I was so excited then was a bit let down when it said 14 loops. AT do focus on the world's first too much. The whole bigger and better in other parks wouldn't be an issue if AT made a good big coaster around the world's first. I know they have...

Re: If You could bring back one past ride?

Several, Boneshaker, never got to ride it as Energizer but Boneshaker was still good. It could be so easily rethemed into Dark Forest style and look epic. Black Hole as I never got to ride it. The ride before Air, cant remember name, never got to ride it but looked alright (not better than air). Wou...

Re: February Half Term 2014

TBH if they could have Oblivion running whilst they built the Smiler I'm sure they could find a way to have Oblivion open whilst they do maintenance on The Smiler. Such as put up police tape (smiler patterned of course) to make a temporary path. I do think the line up is good but they could close th...

Re: The Future of RITA..

I think Rita is a brill ride and can really fit in. I like the idea they use that Rita is the escape from the dark forest but I think it would be better to have the back story being that the riders are being 'attacked' by the Wraith. Then there could be lightening and smoke and stuff. Rita has never...

Re: SW8

Surely the height restrictions are more for safety purposes than anything else, especially on the bigger rides. Not really to stop younger people going on them, but to make sure the people that do go on them are secured safely in the restraints. Yes and if AT wanted to they could have made Oblivion...

Re: SW8

I also think they need more rides with height restrictions of 1.3m. Actually, quite a lot of alton towers rides are at 1.2m or lower and are suitable for the age group you mentioned, for example: Thirteen Sonic Spinball Submission Enterprise The Blade Plus more Personally, I don't see the point in ...

Re: SW8

I think that AT should focus on flats rather than SW8. I LOVE RCs but does AT really need one yet, they have 7 (8 if you include RMT) so they really don't need another yet. What SW8 should be is a new Flume ride thats more themed, less bumpy with more features as the current one has long boring bits...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I think Alton Towers should just use The Smiler and CBeebies Land as their advertisement and focus on revamping the place so that when people do visit, their experience is amazing so they will return and are more likely to stay over and visit 2 days in a row (which AT has said they are aiming to inc...
