Wow...just wow. Sonic is a weird choice for a public service announcement about sexual harrasment. I can just imagine a sonic game where robotnic(I refuse to call him eggman or whatever he's now called) try to grope sonic. Then sonic jumps on him and you randomly release hundreds of animals... Why do you randomly unleash animals after levels anyway?

^^Believe it or not, that is actually a segment from the old cartoon. Every single episode had a PSA message at the end. That show was a disgrace to the entire franchise. Now the other Sonic show, Sonic Sat AM, that was a good show.

I'm confused.

It looks like they are keeping the racing theme, but then making it creepy deep forest-ish with vines and tuff? Or am I totally wrong?

They are going down the "Dark Forest taking everything over" theme I believe.

I vote for Dark Forest vs Nemesis monster! Nemesis for the win!

Big Brother winner Alex Reid launches search for ultimate adrenaline junkies to preview new rollercoaster TH13TEEN at the Alton Towers Resort

Feb 1 2010

 

The most anticipated attraction of 2010, the Alton Towers Resort’s new rollercoaster, TH13TEEN, already has a queue! Theme park bosses have been inundated with so many requests from fans who are desperate to try out the ride, that they have decided to launch a national search for the UK’s ultimate ‘adrenaline junkies’ to be first in line.

 

 

The resort is offering members of the public the chance to have a ‘world-first’ preview of TH13TEEN, the ‘ultimate rollercoaster’, before its grand opening on March 20th 2010 – but it’s not going to be an easy ride.

 

Determined thrill seekers are being invited to test their metal with an application process that makes Big Brother seem like your little sister! To kick-start the search, the Alton Towers Resort has put together a team of experts including Celebrity Big Brother winner Alex Reid who will put wannabe riders through their paces in a series of gruelling tests including:

 

- Psychometric testing

- Interrogation interview

- 2 hr physical assessment

- Rollercoaster endurance (1 hr of continuous rides on Air)

- ‘Midnight bootcamp’

 

Morwenna Angove, Sales and Marketing Director at the Alton Towers Resort said: “We’re thrilled that so many people are excited about our fantastic new rollercoaster TH13TEEN but we have been inundated with requests from members of the public who want to be first on the ride. We feel this is the fairest way to choose who gets the first ride and are inviting thrill seekers across the nation to prove themselves.”

 

TH13TEEN is the ultimate rollercoaster and every theme park ride you’ve ever dreamed of in one. The ride will join a long line of world-first attractions at the Alton Towers Resort including "Nemesis", "Oblivion" and "Air". Based on the discovery of an old burial ground, visitors will be invited to take a ride into the Dark Forest, where they will have to try and escape the all-consuming power of the creeping forest.

Cool trains!

 

Excellent job by Alton's marketing team...though a bit overblown, all of this hype will probably bring in huge crowds. At first, anyway.

Seems like a cool idea for first rides. Are they going to put people through the paces at 13 weekend maybe?

 

Hopefully some TPR people wil apply and go for it!!!

I wouldn't really call that an "endurance" test

 

Although then again on either of the other B&M's at the park, I doubt that would be physically safe for an hour...

 

Also a shame you can only apply if your 18!

Well I will apply for this! I already have an advantage over people for the midnight boot camp! I work nights!

 

Lets hope I get it, once I apply I think everyone from TPR should back me and e-mail the park persuading them to let me take the test!
