Re: Thirteen Live?

SAW: The ride - live! was quite possibly the most "not alive" thing ever... #-o No actors in there, nothing different!

I fail to see how you could make th13teen alive though... add actors? Basically it'll be like opening if they do.

All a scam to make people ride it more tbh...

Re: The Future of the Blackhole Tent

I want to know why people think it's a good idea to put a flat ride in there? How many dark flats do you know of? Apart from drop towers, mad houses and motion simulators? :| See my point? Flat rides are meant to be spectators rides, they cover a small space and attract the most attention due to the...

[quote=""D-Man""]Yeah hopefully we will get another ride, even if it is a decent flat ride that is themed well for Dark Forest or The BH tent.[/quote] What would be the point in that? :? X-Sector is the other side of the park, with a completely different theme! What we need is a ...

Re: New Water Coaster 2012

As nice and as amazing as this idea is (the thought of AT having a Poseidon... mmh!)...

Where's my dark coaster to fill the Black Hole tent? :evil: Why rip up another ride when there's space to be used?

Re: No Limits 2

Just read up a bit about it. There will be an inclusion of switch tracks and apparently they're highly customisable! So... I guess you could make Th13teen! :D

Re: No Limits 2

Judging by those screenshots it looks pretty much the same as NL1... Needless to say I'll still buy it when it comes out, but still... It hardly looks "Next Gen"! :| Hoping for some decent coasters on there. Hopefully a Mack Launched Mega Coaster, B&M Dive and Flyers etc! :D Also, the ...

Re: Water Park: What's going on?!

When I heard the opening hours it baffled me! I heard they're doing it to save money, but surely they'd make more money keeping it open later and perhaps closing it at quieter times during the day? Or maybe even opening a few hours later. Surely most of their guest turn up after a day at the park, i...

Re: Very Old On-Ride Photos

I've got a few from the nineties. Got a classic one of me on the Log Flume in 1999. Will have to upload it! One thing I've noticed though, is how big the photo folders have got recently! Back in the day they were like A5. Now its like an A5 sized photo in an A4 Folder! Which is annoying cuz the stup...

Re: Disabilities?

The thing is, the disabled access is for ease of access, it's there to help the ride along and allow disabled users to safely ride the ride. Unless you're physically disabled or rather severely mentally handicapped, I don't reckon you should be allowed on through the disabled entrance. Dyslexia is a...

Re: Alton Towers next thrill ride

If we do see it getting replaced in such ways, I cant see anything going in there until 2012 at the earliest.

Seven years is a very long time for a ride to be SNBO! :( the current five years is enough as it is!

Re: Alton Towers next thrill ride

I've said it about 5 million times, and I'll say it again. Alton NEED a heavily themed dark coaster to replace Black Hole. Even if its quite a bog standard and forceless coaster it would still be a lovely addition. You could easily fit a Mack Young Star in its place, or even just a standard Mack Sit...

Re: Th13teen

A good ride, not an amazing ride, but a GOOD ride. I loved it personally, especially on the back row! Loads of airtime in the coaster section, a good look at the secret section etc. and Theming wise it's incredible, it shows that merlin mean business! I just cant wait for the park's next instalment!...

The irony of it all is the fact that that man himself is quite obviously racist.
