So much for Alton Themeing the castle 360 degrees, bit of a disappointment, I would love to think they will do it in the next few weeks, but it looks pretty permanent if you ask me, It just looking like instead of the idea of going into the castle you'll just be going into a metal shed, kinda ruins the idea of total immersion psycoaster......

Anyones thoughts?

Unfortunately no, they high parts of Rita have always been painted green to blend in with the trees for planning regs. I believe Rita is staying its colour for the future.

I believe that side of the station (which isn't completely covered yet by the looks of it) is going to be covered in scaffolding and canvases as if the building is being renovated like the Towers themselves. That will cover both the tin shed of the building and the evac stairs and doorway you can see.

^^ I knew the tallest parts of Rita were painted that colour but it looked to me as if more of the track was painted that colour than before, and also the shade of brown on the further away track seemed to be different to the shade on the track around the brake run/ station/launch.

I'm probably mistaken however :)
