  1. A very small drop tower like Space Vertigo at Gardaland would be quite cool...
  2. I just saw this on British news... I heard a woman has died after falling off a roller coaster then looked up at the TV to see Texas Giant. I was deeply saddened/shocked. My thoughts go out to this woman's family & friends as well as well as to the park employees, I can't imagine how it must have felt nor to see a rider return safely.
  3. Back in the original press release from Gerstlauer they promised us they would debut new launch coaster train so this is why we are seing new restraints. If the ride is smooth and the new trains are as comfortable as they look, Tripsdrill & Gerstlauer have got a definite winner on their hands. I know this coaster is Gerstlauer but it reminds me of a compact Blue Fire at Europa Park.
  4. Sorry if this is coming across as backseat moderation but I think everyone just needs to calm down. I joined TPR because it was the most friendly, funny & intelligent forum that I had found on the internet where people can discuss and debate (NOT ARGUE) about roller coasters & theme parks. I know in the past I have posted stupid things (hence my title of DumbTums) but people are taking tiny details way too personally. I find it ironic that a coaster called The Smiler has caused so much heated debate. EDIT: ^ Agreed
  5. I agree with everything that Robb and others have said. I rode it yesterday and I was impressed with the coaster, a lot smoother than I thought it would be. I also agree on the fact that the Marmaliser, while it looks cool it doesn't add anything to the ride. I restrained myself from watching POV videos so that I would be surprised because John Wardley said there would be surprises. I was thinking there would be effects after the first barrel roll, so I was left dissapointed on that front. All in all though, considering Alton Towers limitations, it was well worth the hype and it is a very soli
  6. ^ It isn't honestly too bad (in my opinion). I mean in the park all the rides are quite tall so you just see the ride & walk towards it! It also has lots of details which are hilarious...
  7. Of the top of my head: - Vomiting at the top of a free fall tower and then getting hit by it again at the bottom. - Jumping on a stand up coaster whilst in a loop.
  8. I don't have a smartphone or tablet to play this on. But apparently the element "The Giggler" is a dose of laughing gas! I would love to see this done for real...
  9. Whatever it turns out to be I'm really looking forward to riding it. There are just too many theories and not one clearly most popular theory now the washing machine element theory is pretty much now dead.
  10. First ever: Air at Alton Towers Inverted: Nemesis at Alton Towers Dive: Oblivion at Alton Towers Flying: Air at Alton Towers Sit Down: Dragon Khan at PortAventura Hyper: Silver Star at Europa Park Wing: Raptor at Gardaland Floorless: Scream at Six Flags Magic Mountain Standing: Riddlers Revenge at Six Flags Magic Mountain
  11. There is still a blue square, yes - but on other images posted on other websites, there are pictures which clearly show that there is just an inversion in that position. Towerstimes have removed all news articles that they originally released about the washing machine element. Could you give an example of such a picture???
  12. So in 2013 we have one inverted, one hyper & one wing coaster being turned around... fascinating! EDIT: I know this is a far out idea but could B&M doing three coasters backwards be an early test for 4D coasters?
  13. The Smiler is officialy confirmed by the park... http://www.altontowers.com/thesmiler/ I guess I'll end up liking the name but I am really excited for the ride. OTSRs???
  14. A new clue from Thorpe about whatever they are doing in 2013: Read the first letter of each word...
