Sounds like she wasn't riding in the correct position for that happen. This sort of thing doesn't happen if you ride correctly. The turn where the incident allegedly opccured is quite powerful, but nowhere enough to break bones.

I think didnt happen on the ride. Or else as you people have said, she wasnt riding properly. The G-Forces are similar to Oblivion, abit more, but G-Forces that strong dont break bones.

Or else is it talking about the speed it changes banking? It doesnt seem to bank fast.

I think they are just saying that the coaster did it, but it didnt really.

Alton Towers - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Postby Hicko » Tue Jul 26, 2005 12:06 am

Taken from Rideas:

This is in the latest issue of "The Source", which is the new name for the staff newsletter:

-------------------------------------
TOP NEW ATTRACTION FOR 2006

Alton Towers will proudly unveil a magical new attraction in April 2006. The former Toyland Tours ride on Cred Street will be transformed beyond all recognition to create Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

This fantastic family attraction will reflect the dream-like world created by Roald Dahl in his famous book. Arriving through the factory gates, guests will take a tour on water through the chocolate factory. They will then disembark and walk through the colourful inventing room before taking an unforgettable ride in the famous glass lift.

Head of Brand Marketing, Tracy Burton said: "It will be an amazing adventure for children and nostalgic adults alike. The highlight will, without a doubt, be the glass lift. Using state-of-the-art technology, guests will really feel as though they are flying. It's a very exciting addition to Alton Towers!"

Lol! That Hippo is somewhat creepy. I went when I was 6 and I thought, "What The Heck?"

I left the theater practically knowing a ride would come of that movie. This should be a unique addition to AT.
