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'm pretty confident that the coaster is going to be in a similar vein to Mine Train Ulven at Bakken, which is no bad thing in my view!

 

I'm looking forward to visiting the park soon and getting a look at the construction site myself.

It's looking incredibly similar to the Intamin spinner at Bakken...except Alton already has a spinner.

 

I'm stumped.

 

I doubt the tire driven lift could generate the craziness that is Bakken's Tornado.

Hi, I went to Alton Towers at Halloween a couple of years ago. There tend to be cobwebs and stuff like that everywhere but most of the scary stuff stays in the mazes. The only place to avoid would be Gloomy Hollow or whatever it is called, can't remember it's exact name. Generally I would say it is fine.

Sorry I've never been in the Alton Towers mazes. However if they are anything like the Thorpe Park ones I would advise you to definitely not take her on them. There will be more info about them at the park on the day. Just ask a member of staff what they think

Though the new promotional material I posted earlier doesnt refer to their being a 'World's First' element the newly updated 2010 page on the website does:

 

http://www.altontowers.com/2010

 

It does? Care to show me where?

 

It's right in the writing on the right-hand side bar on that page he linked to...

Did you try the link? It very specifically says:

 

"Want to find out more about our new World-first attraction opening March 2010?"

 

This kind of very clearly highlights that the new coaster will have some specific new element not available before.

Will AT ever end its fantastic tradition of putting stuff in holes? *insert person with a 15 year old's sense of humor's comment here*

 

This is seriously looking cool though, and I don't even know what the hell it really is gonna be like

^Well it's not really by choice that they do it. They have a very strict height limitation policy so having anything with a decent vertical dimension requires these holes. It makes for some awesome looking rides. Nemesis looks amazing and I hope I can get to Alton Towers at some point in my life.
