But 15 million pounds, if that is correct, is a huge capital outlay. I'm not sure what the exchange rate is exactly but that is more than the cost of Intimidator 305. Return on investment may take a while.
Here's hoping it will be something mind blowing though I'm not sure how.
^That seems logical given they possibly have to excavate significantly because of the height restrictions as well. I love how that height restriction led to Nemesis being arguably the best invert in the world.
ROI 5 years that's about what I would expect. It will be interesting to see the changes in crowds at KD when i305 starts operating, now that one could be significant.
I'm dying to see the layout for this one, it could be fun.
If the real ride track is going to have that layout, the theming for this coaster must be pretty extensive. I can't imagine that the coaster track, even with a moderate amount of theming, would have that large of a price tag. I'm looking forward to see what's going to be inside that building.

But... A six figure salary?! Isn't that a little bit too much? Or am I misunderstanding something?
I think Alton might be making too big of a buildup... Eventually it will end up being just some kind of fancy new switch track or whatever, and we'll all go "that's what it was all about?!"
We had this discussion over at TowersTimes. On first quick read through it appears to say 6 figure salary but read more carefully and inspected it says equivalent to (or words to that effect) 6 figure salary. For all we know he could be getting paid in carrots or guinea pigs.
