    The Smiler is the most popular ride there, It don't need any cheesy gimmick to promote it (especially VR) :eek:

    I wonder if it will be renamed the "Big Seven Challenge" next year, when SW8 opens?

    Surely this isn't the ad for the big six? Wouldn't there be more than 2 rides on it

    EDIT: I was wrong :(

    Just a thought prompted by a recent facebook comment on Towers' facebook, surely if this was a major change (Such as VR) it would've been picked up on by the various people who visited the park during the two buyout days?

    Galactica's VR was unavailable for all of the buyout days according to people on Twitter.

    Not entirely convinced, but it does look very likely now.

    One rumour I heard flying around was, like with the EP VR on their Mine Train, at the end scene it flies through Europa park - perhaps Galactica has new VR which flies onto earth, and through AT at some point? ;)

    Maybe because of the absolute hit that is Galactica, they've decided to VR all of their coasters. Nay, every ride!!

    You get VR, and you get VR. Everybody gets VR!

    I can't wait. ;)

    You arrive at Alton Towers, get given a VR headset (£50), sit in your car all day (new £10 parking fee) and virtually enjoy the theme park from your seat. :p

    Looks to me like this is going to be some sort of new Big 6 challenge. Let's hope it is not cut short this time around!

    :)

    Don't give them ideas!

    Yeah, it's almost certainly the big 6 challenge, had some staff members inform me that they have be told of said fact in training.

    Either:
    "You have to be strong to ride all six" (Big Six Challenge)
    or
    "Our coaster lineup is strong".

    Anyone got any other ideas?
