I really don't understand why people were so down on it anyway! Not only that, the fact that it can 'grow' on people before they have ridden it is beyond me.I'm doing a bit of a 180 on this ride now. Whereas I was incredibly underwhelmed at first, the layout is beginning to grow on me.
Oblivion is extremely loud - particularly as the shuttle enters/exits the hole - the brakes too, you can hear it from the chained oak no problem and on the other side of the valley too.Oblivion can be very audible from outside the park, depending on how windy it is. It's dear old Blivvy that enraged the Ropers so much.
I would suggest that is what a lot of people who live in the Staffordshire moorlands would actually want...Oh well I'm sure the locals will get over it. As nobody would go around there if it wasn't for Towers.
You don't typically hear it in the park because there is so much background noise.I'll be honest regarding noise here. Whether I'm just deaf or I don't listen, I don't even hear oblivion from past the towers. If anything, spinball is much louder, can here it from towers street and even mutiny bay. Nemesis isn't quiet either (not saying that's a bad thing ). Personally, I think there are much worse rides for noise than oblivion. Stealth is pretty bad if I remember that; you can hear (and see) it for miles, and it's not one of the nicest visual rides.
Not sure a new owner could complain. Many of the current residents lived in the area before towers was a proper park, so can complain about new coasters ruining the environment they bought the house for. New owners will know the downside of living next to a major theme park (well, I wouldn't consider it a downside ), and have less right to complain.I hope when they finally move on that towers buys the porperty, don't want some egg face moving in and it all starting all over again!
You wouldn't think so but there are some real freaks out there, fame hungry, who some how have the money for a property this size, who would want to pick up the torch from where the Ropers had left it, seems far fetched but you never know.I wonder if they would like to swap places with @DiogoJ42 and have foxes shagging keep them up all night as other than a few special times of year the park is closed in time for tea! It would be hilarious if someone did do that and it turned out to be Amanda Thompson!Not sure a new owner could complain.

Have you got any links?
They both appear to be submitted on the same date indicating they got their heads together. Even if I don't agree with them, I can't see they are being totally unreasonable though. I've seen unreasonable planning objections myself through work and they are far nastier and less valid than these!
^No, it was just a speculative post on a forum. I can't find it now but it was probably CoasterForce or TPR
Scratch that, wrong thread!
They're on the application page on Staffordshire Moorlands site, the link's in the first post of this thread. Scroll to the bottom and there's currently 2 neighbour comments so far!
