Alton Towers Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping there isn't water as well. I'm always grossed out by how unsanitary it can be. One time I got sprayed on a ride and it smelled like straight mildew.

 

Bacterial infections as a souvenir!

Towersstreet facebook shows us that the motor of the vertical lift is in the trench.

Working hard there. Also track has arrived late today, so I guess that there is a chance of some vertical construction tomorrow on the First drop (let's hope for updates).

 

Normally I'm no fan of spreading rumors myself, but I heard a rumor that the ride opens May 18th what is about 5 and a half weeks from now. Does that sound possible with this state of the construction? I have no fears that the track work and Marmaliser aren't done then. But with testing and all that?

Yeah, I seriously doubt that it could be open by then, I mean Gatekeeper is already testing and it will open just 9 days before that date so......

Fencing is going up underneath the Marmaliser just look to the bottom left of this picture:

Also notice the new Toxic barrels that have been put on the Inoculator leg - fake theming pipes have also been joined on to the syringes.

I do hope that some sort of color gets added somewhere, either to the Marmaliser or just grass on the ground. I know it's a dark theme, but it's like the Marmaliser to me is just more black metal on top of what was already a twisted mess. The yellow highlights are nice, but I do wish the legs themselves would've been yellow, or at least some dark shade of another color.

It is the Twist o'steel, not the Twist o'color steel.

But for real, i agree with you, at least the trains are yellow

I kinda dig the look over all.

I just don't understand these Merlin publicity stunts (this and the 'Swarm dropped in the water' one). How would this make The Smiler more attractive to ride?

 

Its not a merlin video just a member of the public who happened to be there at that moment.

I keep looking at these photos attempting to follow the course the trains will take and just give up. This thing is so twisted, it's incredible. I need to find my way over to England and get to Alton Towers. This ride is looking like an awesome addition to an already impressive lineup.
