If as it appears SW8 has a far lower budget than other SW projects, then I wonder if it is possible that the next few SW could be closer together. For example 3, £6million projects over 4 years, rather than 1 £18 project every 4 years.
The fact that AT has closed some of its less popular attractions could mean a few medium investments to replace them over the next few years.
I could live with a medium investment family wooden coaster, flume and dark ride (but we need a new thrill coaster too).
More regular medium investment options, marketed to the family and family thrill demographic could see gate figures rise year on year to get AT back to where it needs to be.
The flat section inbetween the two inclines could be a good potential to have some kind of effect going on, linking in with a story. So incline on a normal lift, train goes level, music/effects/story kicks in as train goes slow, train moves onto second incline with a small launch.
Disappointed. I hope I'm wrong but this looks like an uninspired and wasteful design. The layout is dull (even for family thrill) and the enormous space that they have to play with here has not been fully utilised.
Wooden coasters are at their best when they are lengthy and speedy with airtime hills and nippy turnarounds - this coaster looks like it will lumber around a level-ish track monotonously for a relatively short duration of time. The plans show a wooden coaster that neglects to incorporate the distinctive features that make woodies so great. It all just seems a little bit underwhelming.
