    Duel. Time to say goodbye?

    Apparently the owner is a Mr F Jackson, it's definitely this is some sort of elaborate enthusiast joke, albeit a pretty funny one at that. P.S. Look at the other tweets by that account.

    Duel. Time to say goodbye?

    I believe the old preshow for the ride was ditched during the 2018 refurb, when they also got the new soundtrack and changed all the lighting. I think the fact that the forum is talking about a Duel refurb 5 years after the last one speaks volumes. I think it's time to just put the Haunted...

    Drayton Manor Park

    I feel like the Drayton Manor zoo would be better with smaller animals such as seals, penguins, birds and meerkats etc with smaller animal-themed rides integrated and themed around the exhibits and the bigger animals getting big zoo exhibitions at West Midlands Safari Park, that way both parks...

    When was the last time that attraction was even saw alive?

    Drayton Manor Park

    Would a bridge here be a good location? I understand on a design level it would make the flow and layout of the park a whole lot nicer, but from a guest perspective that's a long walk, I couldn't see the vast majority of guests wanting to use it due to the distance between attractions, yes the...

    General Queue Times Discussion 2022

    Great, what was possibly the most boring interesting thread to read last season is getting a sequel, awesome. :D Can't wait for the complete trilogy of "the app says Smiler is on 10 minutes rn, I wish I was there!" next year.

    Oblivion: General Discussion

    When Oblivion reaches the end of it's service life it will interesting to see what happens to the ride, as it would leave a massive hole (both figuratively and literally) in Towers' coaster line-up as they don't really another major coaster with a large drop like Oblivion's. I'm sure they...

    2022: General Discussion

    Furthermore, this sounds like the Summer of Fun/Big Six Challenge but with them changing out the soundtracks of all the major coasters for (what I presume) will be a curated playlist for each of the Big 7. https://www.altontowers.com/explore/events/festival-of-thrills/

    The Alton Towers Dungeon

    Maybe after Hex has retired, they could reuse the parts of Hex currently in the Towers for a preshow/queue line for a ride (such as a flying theatre) themed to Darwin and Sir Algenon's adventures and then use part of the Conservatory where the Hex exit now as the entrance to a relocated Dungeon...

    Nemesis: General Discussion

    If that's true then the cost of steel just to replace the track on Nemesis would be £3,695,760. I calculated it by using the price of steel currently and the length of Nemesis. So this is definitely going to near the price of buying a new rollercoaster outright when everything is said and done.

    Nemesis: General Discussion

    I'm not keen on that idea to be honest, the building is too far away from the station to be practical, I'd rather see a new flat ride or scare maze on the N:ST site. Also Nemesis is one of those rides where the story doesn't need to be explained, nor was it ever meant to be understood/explained...

    Nemesis: General Discussion

    It would be interesting to see how much changes when the ride gets retracked, Will they keep the current paint scheme? Will they change the soundtrack? Will anything be done with the Sub Terra building such as a Nemesis-themed maze? Anyway here's a few enhancements I would make, without making...

    The Brexit Thread

    There's a lot less people who fit the stereotype of Brexiteer than at first glance, I also have family that were along the Leave/Remain divide, and those who voted Leave, whilst they would a appear the architype of Brexiteer at first glance, there views are a lot more nuanced, I've got family...
