I've seen this several times before, but it still looks so alien!
Having ridden both I think Oblivion is the best, the deep tunnel adds so much to the ride experience!
It just looks so odd doesn’t it?
The size of those supports though, incredible
Wow ok next time i see Oblivion I will try not to think of how small the thing looks from ground level. Got to love John Wardley.
The colour scheme on G5 is atrocious on another note
The tunnel mouth entrance is the half way point in height of the ride. Oblivion goes just as deep underground as it is above the ground.
Construction images can be found here
With the smiler now having a SRQ, does anyone think the park will reintroduce it to other rides next season?
I can see it coming back to oblivion, there was no reason to get rid of it from oblivion (I’m including cost cutting as a reason just this once).
If I cycled to Alton towers is there anywhere I can lock my bike up safetly?
On those hills? Are you mad‽
(Afraid I can't help you though).
There's a crappy looking bike lock area as you head towards the admissions plaza from the coach/car parks.
It looked to be the type you can only lock one wheel to.

Ok so if I recycle a bottle at the coca cola thing then I get 50% off entry to the park. Does anyone know what the cost of an adult Day ticket is and therefore how much half price would be
If only there was some mad invention where you could type words and questions into a machine and then the answers would show up on a screen in only a few seconds? I visited earlier in the year so I'll just go and get the map they gave me on the gate and see if there is a pricelist on there. Be back in about 40 minutes.
Pretty sure he means check the internet Ethan...
So it's £56 and 50% off is £28. That's still expensive imo but I'll go with it
Ah, I remember when the full adult rate was £28. Those were the days.
Err, I remember two and a half quid!
In my day, gates were open 26 hours a day, AND park owner would pay us for turning up.
I am so trying to not to reply with that monty python sketch.

Is this the right thread for an argument?
I've already told you once.
