Photo TR: Elissa and Non-German Tom Go To Alton Towers!


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

Guess where we are? That's right! I had to come back to England for more "work stuff" so while I went to work, Elissa and Non-German Tom went to play!

 

Check out photos of their new dark ride "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (rumor has it that Toyland Tours was MUCH better) and finally we now have pics of Rita, Spinball Whizzer, and more!

 

And for those of you waiting for Tatsu to open, get your fill of B&M flyers with tons of Air shots.

 

Anyway, you can find the full update here:

Enjoy!

Meh to Rita! The rodent ride is where it's all at!

Rita is like the "family ride" of Intamin rocket coasters.

Nice TR! It's a bummer that C.A.T.C.F is not as good as TT. I think people expected too much for it. I've heard rumors that BubbleWorks is now not as good as it was now! So I take it Hex is the best darkride at AT? It sure looks like it.

Great TR Charlie looks pants, will see for myself in May.

 

why do air and nemisis have such lame drops?

the rides look great but were do they get the speed at.

Because of the way Nemesis is designed it just gets faster and faster as it goes through the circuit. If you think about the drop that was on drachen fire at BGW that is all that is happening on the initial drop of Nemesis. After that inversion (I think it is a wing-over) you carry on downwards in a helix accelerating all the way. The lowest point of the ride is not till later still.

 

Air is sadly not as awsome. Some of the elements are fun but it is just to damb slow and dull. Plus the restaints give me muchos asthma attacks

Who is it that keeps claiming that on Air, you spend more time on you back than on your front? Because thats nonsense, your on your back for 1 drop and a bend, then you do a 360' twist!

 

It was just a joke i'm guessing.

I didn't know that Nemesis had that alien-eyeball-and-blood themeing (shades of Great America's Demon when I was in high school, at least when it comes to the blood). But are you sure it's blood? Perhaps someone gave Nemesis a "nice Hawaiian Punch."

 

I'm looking forward to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, actually--the book was my "Harry Potter" when I was a kid.

You spend more time on your back on Air than you do on any other flyer, including even the Zamperla ones!

 

IMO, Air spends WAY too much time on your back to be a "flyer"

Where are you going today? Or is it tomorrow already? Or yesterday? Or... well... Where are you going in the next 24 hours? Your 24 hours, not my 24 hours. I know what I'm doing, and it's nothing to write a TR about. It's pretty boring in fact. But... well... uh... so when did you all adopt NG Tom? He seems to go everywhere with you.

 

Speaking of NG Tom. You two are bad parents! First you let him get groped by mommy and the UK's reigning porn queen on your last trip. Now your sitting down and watching adult movies with him in your hotel room. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Can you adopt me? Please!

You are correct but the laying on your back part isn't bad though as it seems to be the only spot on the ride you get any intensity. Although I havn't been on it for 2 years now so it might of changed a bit.
