Hey ATA guys, where are the construction picture updates from the weekend?

In the logical place, the construction thread here.

So with the current theme of SW6 looking like dark woods, does anyone agree/think they could possibly relocate Duel, in order to create a creepy sector of the park? Also enabling room for a woodie/other attraction near the flume..

Maybe but I don't think Alton Towers are going to get a woodie in the next 10 years somehow.

Regrading the theme, I think it might not necessarily be a dark forest theme. I think some sort of creatures theme might work better, as it would be easier to make Rita fit in with an animal / creature theme than a dark forest theme. Perhaps some sort of incorporation of both?

I'd love the Towers to take this cool opportunity to place, subtly, a recreation of the chained oak in somewhere; particularly if they are doing the forest theme...

Would be far far better if it was 'dead' obvious too; so that you'd maybe only see if it you were really looking. Alternatively, would be good if it were a centrepiece that could be spookily lit on nights when the park is open!

ive suggested this a few times. having a decoy chained oak tree on site at the park, so all the moron teenagers and other folk don't go stomping about in the woods and try to find it and vandalise it in some way.

Will be good to see how far its gone. Im expecting that more of the hill lift will of been constructed. Take 2 visits up tomorrow (i would of done but the godson was getting reet on me knerves, 12 year olds who think that its their day out and infact its not, he was invited tongue.gif ) once in the morning when you arrive and once before you leave, you'll be amazed how much will of gone up during the day.

I like it. Anything creative is a win in my book smile.gif

''The Earls, from the time of the 15th Earl in the early 19th Century would have passed close-by High Shutt Tree on their way up Dimmingsdale on their carriageway - and they perhaps knew of its significance.''

....could we have another ride video like Hex? Here's hoping, that ride has some amazing theming, which I guess is why it's still so popular. I love the musty smell you get walking through the end too...mmm

I liked the idea of the poster, but the circles it had made it look rather futuristic as opposed to dark and scary. Maybe dimming the entire photo would have been nice.

"Sience v's the supernatural" is the phrase i think is used in Hex. IF it is an extention of hex, then the coloured circles are sience, astrology and symbols which symbolise that.

Okay, fair enough. I personally don't want it to continue with a Hex theme, they should be able to come up with a new idea really, but I do like the poster and think it works well with what you tried to create. smile.gif

I like it smile.gif Could Surrender be the ride name?

Looks like we know the name of the ride. Its a bit similar to Submission tho.

Also, any clues in this pic. The sinking beneath the ground, black hole in the middle of the pic (the eye), could this indicate falling?

I'm doubting Surrender is the name of the ride. Surely, there'd be slightly more than a couple of posters when releasing the name of a world's first ride. I think the whole 'Surrender' is then included added onto 'in March 2010'. Hence, I feel we have not got a name, but just some clever promo stuff from AT to think we've been given a poor name, and when the real name is released, everyone will go 'WOW - never expected that...'

However, do love the poster, with the demon and the creep eye in the centre. Makes the dropping track element seem inevitable...

Imagine if... if there is a point on the ride when you stop.. there's a large video screen above the 'coaster' with the eye looking at you.. then the 'coaster' drops down whilst you're more distracted by the eye...

I like the poster, and love that they seem to be extended the Hex theming into a whole area... What's to become of Rita's Chicken and Ribs...?? The Dark Forest Diner!? LOL
