I noticed that myself. Surely it couldn't be the same one?swalesuk01 wrote:Last time we went to Chessington what looked suspiciously like the carriage from gloomy wood was tucked away in the queue line for Vampire. They may have had there own but you could see the cut out in the back for you to pose for pictures like the one in gloomy wood and this one was in no place for a photo opportunity with it.
What rides and attractions do you miss? Share your memories of Alton Towers' extensive past here.
Unfortunately we never went to chessington before we noticed the carriage disappear from gloomy wood to be sure. We are just going by the fact it looked more dumped out the way against a wall so you struggled to see the back was cut away to allow you to pose in the coffin. Like I say it could just be coincidence and they bought 2 at the same time but I couldn't see where it would have fitted in closer to the queue line or outside so you could have your photo with it and seems out the way of the rest of the themeing to the line.
Yeah Nemesis has had a few different camera positions, I dunno why they kept changing it?PeteB wrote:[quote=""El Patricko""]And too add, i'm fairly sure nemesis used to have an on ride photo located after the corkscrew rather then before the zero g.
whatever happened to the 2007 nemesis and rita music?
No idea what happend to the park's 2007 music though, it was all royalty free stuff and the chances of ever finding it are slim to zero! Would be an interesting listen if anyone did find it![/quote]
Sorry for the (very) late reply, but this video and this video contain the 2007 music.
The Hex videos have been the same since the day it opened.TTheory wrote:What ever happened to the old Hex videos? I heard that there used to be videos with a mad scientist or whatever, and that guests found it too confusing? Has anyone got these videos?
The "mad scientist" that you're referring to is the 15th Earl of Shrewsbury, whom the backstory and legend is centred around.

Not true, Hex was different in its first year and from what I've learnt it had a slightly goofier story following the historian chap retelling the legend. I've heard outtake footage from the Hex V1 video exists in archives somewhere, but nobody's ever found the original film. Very little is known about Hex V1 it seems.
I noticed that in March, but it had made a return in August. It's probably because they're still doing bits of maitenence.inFusion wrote:Sorry if this has been asked before, but whatever happened to the "Can You Cut It?" text on the underside of the Ripsaw gondola? I've seen recent pictures/videos of Ripsaw and it seems to have dissapeared.
There is no Information available about the fate of the attraction but I believe it must have been taken apart, stored then later scrapped. There is a chance it might have been sold to another park somewhere but so far it hasn't shown up anywhere.lucozade wrote:What happened to the Mississippi Showboat?
