What exactly is this ride supposed to do?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Okay peoples, i'm starting work on my TH13TEEN application videos. Any ideas are more then welcome, post them here or PM me. I will post a selection of videos on to CoasterTube and then you the TPR massive will vote for the one I submit!

The rules are as follows:
You need to upload an application video of yourself to YouTube to apply, and provide a link to the video below. The video must be no longer than 60 seconds, and include answers to the questions:

* Tell us why you deserve to be one of the first people to ride Thirteen?

Bit of info on the Sonic themed hotel suite added to the official site:

Sonic The Hedgehog Room

Spin into the universe of Sonic The Hedgehog in his amazing new themed room. Stay in the famous game level of Green Hill Zone, practise your video gaming skills in the dedicated gaming area with Sonic game library, hunt for the Chaos Emeralds and test Sonic facts!

^ I MUST stay there!

I'm loving the Sonic re-theme of Spinball. Spinball was looking pretty dilapidated last time I was there. It never had much theming anyway.

Is it me, or does anyone else think there'll be a nice pop of air in the back off that first drop? I know the roller skater's use the tyre lift (except for Barnstormer) and they have a considerable pop...

I love the trains, and I love the look of 13. Sure Alton are over hyping it, but it's going to be an interesting ride.

Oh, good luck Craig with your entry.
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!'

In the T&C I just have to wait for the Rules concerning what the video must include before I start work on it. Its not as if i'm short of video either :P

Craig - I think you need to be more concerned about the mental health disclaimer. :lol:

Right now my physical health isn't helping me out much. I've got a pretty bad cold so I have had to put the video on hold. I'm hoping to get it done in the next couple of days though.

Putting those corkscrew's at the entrance is going to give Alton Towers one of the best and coolest looking entrances anywhere. Can't wait to see it finished.

I have to agree. Figures though, they'd paint Corky after it was removed...
