The comparison to Thorpe´s X could simply mean that Alton´s new coaster will also change direction, will (partially) be built indoors and it could still be made by the same manufacturer.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

A planning application for a £12 million ride to replace the Corkscrew at Alton Towers has been deferred following a barrage of protests.


The full article can be found here: http://www.thisisstaffordshire.co.uk/ne ... ticle.html

The final decision should now be made next month

I'm sick of all the old folk's trying to ruin our fun. :lolr:
We should send our own letters in favor of the ride! That would be funny.

^Thats not actually that bad an idea. Planning applications have to go through various stages. If people managed to demonstrate to the council how important this new ride could be for Alton Towers' Future then it could be quite important. Every little helps :P

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^or those who go to Alton Towers could argue that the noise from the Ropers' pottery factory is making it difficult to enjoy your day at the park. Do to them what they do to Alton Towers. Another thing that might work is to show up at a town meeting and say to the locals that "unless you lived in Alton before the park opened, then don't complain."

I'm sure that the coaster will still get built though because:
1. it will be away from the historic building that locals said would be destroyed
2. the ride will probably be filled with sand reducing noise
3. few trees will supposedly be removed
4. if I remember correctly, the local government is starting to realize that the locals will do whatever it takes to get the park closed(most recent time Ropers complained about noise)
5. won't the ride will be smaller height wise than corkscrew

THE BOY

Well, that's awesome.
Now let's get the thing built!

Does anybody know the manufacturer yet?
I think it's either B&M or Vekoma..
