    There you go Leah:[​IMG]

    Beginning to wonder if it's time Alton moved away from the pay-one-price model and transferred over to a pay-per-ride type of model? They seem to be trying to with attractions like this.

    hmm, what on earth do participants even have to do?! plus, for safety reasons inflatable things like that aren't usually used in wet weather (most of the season, probably), so it's not good that it's replaced ripsaw, i was hoping for an actual, high-capacity ride (games like that usually only take one player). what they've done is absolutely shocking!

    Is that a pool for guest to cool down in once they realise that they have been duped into visiting a theme park where half of the ride are SBNO ?

    I didn't realise the new Secret Weapon was being built this year.....

    Knowing Alton Towers, they'll add fast track to that thing as well.

    So to replace a popular flat ride, we have a device created to extract yet more money from people.
    Yay?

    Just as a point of interest, there was one of those at Thorpe last year.

    Stop the press! Exciting new developments already happening on park! *rolls eyes*
    I'm guessing you'll be standing on some sort of podium while that bar spins around and tries to knock you off.
    Nice to see they've been spending so much time watching total wipeout.

    On the plus side, at least it's kinda themed.

    That counts, right?

    Right?

    Its essentially just a great big middle finger up to guests isn't it.

    My personal highlight is keeping the back wall theming of Ripsaw to remind you what was there before and now. Does it have a name? I REALLY hope its something Ripsaw related just to top off this monstrosity.

    I would imagine it's a stop gap not a genuine long term replacement.
