Yes correct, it is a dump. But for some unknown reason people go there for a holiday !. Good luck on trying to get the Super SLC as I tried & failed last year to get it. I know someone that had to go there 5 times to get it !.
Yeesh, are you kidding me? :shock: They've allready painted the top ofit? Wow, they aren't kidding when you hear about the locals complaining about the park. I think the coaster looks good and can't wait to ride it during our first UK trip next year.
Can you imagine if the neighbors of SFGAdv started complaining about Kingda Ka?
"This Just in..Kingda Ka got a new paint job, it's the color of the sky because the neighbors were complaining that it looks like a big green dick. On a completely different topic, an airplane crashed into Kingda Ka. Pilot said that he didn't see it coming because it blended with the sky"
"Britain, Britain, Britain, We're open from 9 to 6, monday through saturdays"
Hold on to your lunch: 'Rita' is fastest roller yet By Elisa Bray 28 March 2005
A new rollercoaster that will propel its riders from 0 to 60mph in 2.5 seconds is about to open at Alton Towers in Staffordshire.
Rita - Queen of Speed, which has a Grand Prix theme, subjects riders to a G-force of 4.7 and is intended to surpass the burst of acceleration in Formula One cars.
The ride, which cost £8m, lasts just 49 seconds. It will open on Friday, three weeks into the Park's spring season started, joining established rides with ominous names such as Oblivion, Nemesis, and Corkscrew.
Although Rita has the quickest start in Europe, it is outpaced by another rollercoaster designed by the same firm, Intamin of Switzerland.
The Top Thrill Dragster - a roller coaster built in 2003 at Cedar Point, Ohio - launches riders at 120 mph in four seconds.
But the world's fastest rollercoaster will open this spring at the Six Flags Great Adventure park in New Jersey. Rocketing riders from 0 to 128 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, Kingda Ka then catapults them 450 feet skywards, smashing all records for speed and height.
