Which ride would you remove?

Got an idea of how the Alton Towers Resort may develop over the coming seasons? Discuss it here.
LiamSAFC

Okay, we get people around the forums all the time, suggesting what rides they loves and prefer to ride, but which ride (or perhaps part of an area in need of a revamp) would you personally remove and why? Could be due to theming clashes or you personally may hate the ride in question?

Mine would have to be probably CatCF. The space in there has so much potential to be more than what it is, and a world class Dark Ride could be put to use instead of the smables of theming we have in there now. Perhaps something linking into the new shows in Cred Street, with a darker sinister story?

Thoughts?

As much as I don't really like CATCF a great deal, there's other rides in the park I'd sooner see the back of ... and heaind that list would have to be Submission ... really not a fan of the ride, I find it uncomfortable and not a great deal of fun, and although it wouldn't free up a lot of space, I think they could relocate Ripsaw to fill its space which I think would fit in with the area's theming and then maybe get a new flat up in FV :)

Either CACTF, Submission or The Flume. Boy, does Alton Towers need a DECENT log flume. Like American Adventures >_>

Or remove Air. There, I said it :P

Duel, although techically that's cheating because I want a similar ride put in it's place. Same scenario with The Flume.

I would remove the Corkscrew....

Ug Land could really do with an overhaul as the general layout and theme is completely abysmal as it stands, and, despite it's historical significance, I think ol' Corky needs to be removed in order to properly establish the 'new' Alton Towers Resort brand, and move into a new era....

It will be a brave move for Alton when they do eventually decide to close the Corkscrew, but one I feel will genuinely improve the quality of the area, and continuity of the park...

Am I the only person to like submission? -.-

I feel that nothing needs to go, corkscrew needs a revamp though.

What about Ug-Bugs? I know it's for kids but it doesn't seem to have any importance.

Submission, Duel, Corkscrew, Ug Swinger, Flume

Submission or Ug Swinger. Both pretty poor rides that I never really go on that much. Submission looks cool and fits in with X Sector very well, but it is pretty painful and very slow. Ug Swinger, although I can understand its purpose for offering a family/tame ride along with Corkscrew & Rita, and in a way is sort of an icon for the park, it is a pretty crap ride to be fair. But overall I'd have to say Submission.

I'd rather have rides added without rides being removed, but the one ride I would like to see go is Submission. It's painful and not very thrilling compared to other rides, and it doesn't look as good with only one side being able to operate at a time. It could be replaced with a much better flat even though the space that it would create would be limited. It's too boring and predictable now, every ride is exactly the same.

I think submission is a fun ride. I would remove CATCF. The themeingis just poor and is kinda pointless. Should be replaced with a better themed ride.

I like submission! Lol it's quite fun.

I'd personally remove the flume for a PROPER log flume. I love that one in Wales with the massive drop that looks fantastic. SOmething of that nature maybe?

I'd like to get rid of CATCF, so much potential in that space and it's wasted! A garbage ride.

Dare i mention the possibility of removing Corkscrew? I love the ride truely and I dont really want it to go BUT it is very old and now is either needing a very good revamp with new paint etc, OR being replaced. The former would be appreciated rather than the latter.
