So what do we make of this? As well as the postponed 'World of David Walliams' featuring 'Gangsta Granny: The Ride' opening this season, Alton Towers have rented three classic fairground rides they ar

I mean, at least Merlin is finally using their bizarre ass marketing for something that kind of works?!!? I get that it's a bunch of temporary carnival rides but at this point I'll take it!

I think they're trying to make the best out of a bad situation - partly of their own doing as they seem to have got rid of all their support rides. The choice of rides seems pretty crappy so well done

I believe my name was invoked 3 times. That's my cue.

 

I'm kinda the Beetlejuice of TPR.

I think I see another TPR inside-joke coming along. We're turning into the reddit of the coaster world.

 

My life is one giant inside joke.

I read somewhere that the coaster will have FORTY EIGHT seats. That a lot, especially for a wooden coaster. Because AT is so into 'so called' world firsts (Galactica comes to mind ) I wander if it will be the 'worlds first' wooden coaster with four abreast seating?

Yeah call me confused. Is it two lifts? Is it known there is going to be a launch? What is going on there?

 

Is that a splashdown I see lol?

 

And finally, nice job on all those airtime hills. It's like an extended dance remix of Toro's finale.

 

*I still really, really want to go to this park.

Sorry to shit on your biscuits but that one is from the first plans we saw with two gradients on the lift.

 

This one by Nemesis94 on TowersStreet is a more up to date one based on the latest plans

I created this a while back BEFORE the plans were fully released. Don't trust this! Use these ones Instead, made using the real plans released recently: (Ive had to watermark them since media sites (like the one you listed) have been taking my images without my permission and not citing the source )

So basically all of this is fanfiction???

 

I'm out of the loop here, is this real or not? If it's fan fiction surely we can come up with something better than a woodie with a water splash right!?!?

^^The picture you posted and the one shown in the article, plus all those above are based on the SW8 plans that recently surfaced. So although they're unlikely to be 100% correct, the final coaster will look sort of like them when it opens in 2018. So no,not fan fiction but based upon the plans.

So basically fan fiction . . . of what they think it will be. Plan fiction!

I got to admit, I was fooled. That was great fan work but as you said if based on the filed plans should be close. Looks like a fun ride and good to see Alton finally get a wooden coaster.

Okay time to throw my hat in the ring about this investment.

 

Im going to cut straight to the point and say I'm more interested in what toilet paper I will buy next than this. Merlin have done nothing but deliver lack lustre investments and lazy attempts at re theming IN MY OPINION over the last few years so I have no reason to think this will be any different what so ever. I have never been of the belief that Alton needed a woodie and I stand by that even now. Don't get me wrong I love woodies but this does nothing for me. Hell I mean they may prove me wrong and this may be a kick arse ride if it gets built without the locals moaning about it. If that day does come I will happily give them the credit for it but until it happens I am not going to be paying much if any attention to this project.

^ I do agree with some of your points. I feel that this coaster would have been more creative, and interesting if it wasn't for the height restriction.
