Am I the only one who thinks for the first time Alton Towers are taking Secret Weapon literally, calling in the SAS to stake out the ride while it is in operation and taking out a ride on each turn and the last person alive at the end of the ride is the person who survived the "Ride Into The Unknown"

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.
Not quite. Id assume they're paying a 6 figure salary but only for the length of the project. If he works for 3 months he gets paid £25,000. That kind of deal.
I dont think that's what the breaks in the track you circled signify, especially considering they are not nearly teh same height or location, and the supports are static. But that is a possible explanation for the missing track pieces
That's an interesting idea. It would certainly live up to the hype! The breaks in the track look convincing, but as someone mentioned the supports look too static. I'd love for this to be the special effect though!
