    Imagine if that actually happened! ;) Merlin inspired by BPB and #mousegate.

    Maybe they’re closing it to make it floorless and put in an inversion? No?
    Ok :(

    Perhaps one of the fitters unplugged the computer that supplies the Oblivion queue feed so he could charge his mobile phone.

    In that case attractions.io defaults to closed
    As it stands the ride does not exist on the system.

    Sorry to be blunt, but I really don't think anyone cares that a ride has disappeared from ridetimes during the closed season. It means nothing!

    I know it means nothing, it is a bit odd how it's only Oblivion so far.

    When swarm’s chain snapped it was taken off the queue tab on the app along with it’s information page.

    Not to worry, as rumour has it, they are re-routing oblivion track and merging it with The Smiler track to turn two rides into one big epic ride called Smilblivion...

    ...and in other news, pigs do fly and the other one has bells on it :p

    The Alton Towers app has been updated, so imagine that might be why it’s vanished, as I guess the app is linked in with the ride times site as well.

    Oblivion is finally getting "RMCed".

    Because every ride older than five years needs to be RMCed. It's the done thing. Like throwing all your plastic out to save plankton (rather than actually keeping and reusing it).

    They are going to replace the steel rails with wooden planks.

    World's first, donchaknow.

    I thought this was suitable bearing in mind it's 2019 discussion. How do you guys think opening weekend will be in terms of operations

    Depends on what the weather is, as we saw this year the “enhanced safety protocols” mean rides now close / don’t open when previous years it wouldn’t of been an issue.

    Well, that is the exact rubbish Merlin are likely to throw millions at.

    Whilst simultaneously patting themselves on the back for saving £34.43 on staffing costs.

    Oh dear!

    All thrill rides other than Spinball Whizzer are gone from ridetimes - looks like we won’t be having a great 2019 ;)

    I would post a screenshot, but I’m not sure how to!

    It will have been updated ready for winter openings for Santa Sleepovers and Festive Breaks.

    2019 in a nutshell...

    Good news:
    • All closed food and beverage units will reopen
    • The Pirate show will return
    • Entertainers will return across the resort
    Bad news:
    • No rollercoasters will be open this year due to budget being spent on the above
