The "Black Hole was one of my fav rides at Alton Towers along with "Thunderlooper".

I wish AT kept it running and added more lights and effects, e.g. while going round the lift hill "lasers can bounce off mirrors" and have a big smoke machine at the top of the tent facing downwards.

X: No Way Out at Thorpe Park is another dark ride which suffers badly, give it more lights and lasers etc to make the ride more enjoyable. :b

Alton Towers should build a coaster like below and put it in the "Old Black Hole" tent. :lmao: :lmao:

The only thing I know about the Black Hole other than the fact it was a Jet Star, was that it had really cool trippy lift hill music, which you can download from this page... http://www.towerstimes.co.uk/history/oldrides/bh.htm

adding more lights to X:\NWO would only make it look even more crappy...

To bad that Black Hole is closed at Alton Towers. I've done the coaster in may 2004, the last year that it was open. The coaster was really nice and has a nice theming inside of it.

X No Way out is a verre strange ride, 3 brake's in the middle of the lay-out is strange.

The line didn't take an infinite time, it just seemed that way from outside.... :lolr:

Maybe it was too small, and just evaporated over time... :lmao:

My main memories are the music, voice at the top of the drop that used to say"sit back hold tight",rachit lapbars and most of all the that big white sign that said brakes hold tight then about 3secs later slam.
I didn't think the ride has been removed because the tent was supposed to go with it. As for X it's so bad it's better with less lights. They tried putting in more lights and it was even worse

X: No Way Out should be scrapped and have a "dark" Spinning Mouse installed instead.

Let's hope "X" will be removed within the next 2 seasons as it has become unpopular with the public.
