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

Well, turns out that picture was taken from here. A shame really, as it's a beautiful looking train. Would be brilliant if it's similar.

 

If you do a little digging on that site you'd find that the person who runs it is in fact an employee of Gerstlauer.

These are my Trains! http://www.coaster-lab.com

 

As of August 2012 I am a designer at Gerstlauer but I have to inform you that these are not the actual train that are going to be used on the SW7 Coaster.

 

Thank you for all the enthusiasm about my designs. I have spoken to a lot of companies such as intamin at the IAAPA so who knows what could happen. I also talked to Robb a little bit about my company. Can you remember Robb?

You have some great ideas on that site.

Quite a lot more track and rebar arrivals in the past few days - and track is now being moved from car park areas to the construction site! Seems the project has gone vertical!

Is there going to be an announcement about this or are they going to wait til opening?

 

Marketing for SW7 will begin in earnest once the park get their Christmas resort event out of the way. I don't think they want any distractions.

 

First reveal for Nemesis: Sub-Terra was 31st December 2011, so I am expecting things to begin in a few weeks - with a massive campaign through late January, February and into March.

Always interesting to see which direction Alton will take with their marketing. I predict over the top, ridiculous statements type marketing. Which would actually work this time as this is going to be a thrilling ride.
