Rita is very short BUT, the launch is brilliant I loved it, the airtime is amazing very nice. Also it is intense. The ride is really unique compared to other rocket coasters and it has done alton towers well. This ride is really loved by the GP.
I love the coaster.
The lay-out is verry original and not like other rockets only up-and-down effect. My favorite part of it is the launche offcourse, front-seat is the best.
What a power has the coaster, verry different with a Vekoma launched, it's a lot faster.
I went over to an Alton Towers website, to update myself with a park I've only read and seen certain videos about, and I was shocked to hear about the apparent closing of the Black Hole last year.
Is the building still there, or was the whole business torn down? And have they announced any future plans for the site? I was never on this ride, but it's such a shame to see another indoor coaster close down.
I see...well, here's hoping that Alton Towers will some day build another space themed coaster to fill the void left behind by the Black Hole's closure. Outside of the Space Mountain coasters, you really don't see these kinds of rides much anymore.
Well the Building is still standing but apparantly the ride has been completely removed! To be honest its nothing special, its just a Jet Star and it everytime I went to Alton Towers there was always at least a 45 minute que!

So how did they get the coaster out of the 'tent' ? through the entrance door
Theres been no evidence that the coaster has gone, it's SBNO
Just a Jet star! I love Retro coasters that first drop was so great.
I was at the rides wake, IMO there should have always been space for it.
Now the U.K has no real thrilling dark coasters. It's a real shame to see classic rides like these be removed. It's even worse to see it and not be able to ride it. Although it does have a nice memory board at the entrance with old pictures and adverts.
