Alton Towers Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Today the whole day there stood a train on standby on the transfer track. Who knows Perhaps some testing tonight or tomorrow.

Also Towerstimes said that Alton Towers would announce the openings day this week which is good news, I'm ready to hear it.

Or noodles (Does this one not work anymore?), or lockers

 

The filters are probably my favorite part of this site, is there anyway to see the whole list? But my god does that ride look insane, it'll be interesting to see what the pacing will be like.

Video from yesterday. Near the end you see a train getting out of the maintenance shed. Good to see that (some) systems are running, there are claims that yesterday the chains where running too. I'm getting more and more exited, I want to see it running.

I'm intrigued by the new train design (and slightly creeped out by the laughing people, but that's probably intentional!). Eurofighters sometimes don't age very well so I'd like to see how these trains ride in a few seasons time.

A small update for you all:

Plenty of these boxes have appeared on site and been lowered into the pit.

...which appear to be lighting systems, that have been placed throughout The Smiler's ride area, with marketing agency Cake seen on-site.

After months of being hidden away by banners, the site of The Smiler will soon be fully visible.

This is certainly no Christmas fairy light job...

It looks like whatever the lights are for will be done sometime between now and Wednesday.

 

HSL are a lighting company whose work varies from TV productions to concert tours.

 

For a large update of photographs (including a sneak peak into the first lift hill tunnel and a close up of the lights):

Clicky here.

It will be nice to see some video of this when it starts testing.

I can confirm now (via Towerstimes forum) that there have been test last night and probably it is still running at this hour. They start testing at around 6 PM so after closing time. Also this person stated that the ride testing will take around 2 weeks making the 18th of May (rumored opening date) possible.

You know I see it open the 18th or Wednesday (have no idea why but Wednesday feels right) the 22nd. I could be really optimistic here but he it looks almost done.

I want the list too!

 

Let me test one based on what I found online - rings.

^^ I believe the second half is also no problem for the ride.

Alton Towers guide.

Love the look of the camera for the onride picture. We have seen them promoting with Security cams before (like the game scanner) so I love the idea here.
