its rumoured that the seats are going to be on a sort of robotic arm and apparently that is why SW6 is a world 1st. dry.gif

Yea... wasn't that like rumoured years ago but I believe they decided not to go with that idea.

How about a simulator coaster, I've never heard of one of them. Think of a top gun simulator ride in its usual simulator casing. Now put the casing on a roller coaster, allowing the rider to experience full g force and movements of flight rather than being shook to simulate movement.

Do we think its gonna be a robocoaster?

No.

I actually think this leaflet story is a windup too. We aren't going to know for a while yet, only top management and engineers who have the plans officially know. So chill out, there's more important things to worry about in this world than what SW6 is going to be.

Alton Towers have kindly offered to post me some copies of the leaflet so if nobody else manages to scan them in the next few days, I'll put a copy online once I've received it. smile.gif

It can't be a Robo-coaster because:
  • The plans show bi-track and a Robo-Coaster uses a track with a box section, similar to B&M's track.
  • Universal currently have exclusive rights to the Robo-coaster concept.
  • This ride has pretty much been confirmed as being manufactured by Intamin. I'd be shocked if the Robo-Coaster company haven't patented their unique product. So if Intamin were to try and create their own version they would make themselves vulnerable to being sued.
Now lets finally put this rumor to rest. sleep.gif

Looking at that image, to the far left, there's a small orange blur. Anyone else think that it slightly resembles a spinning coaster car? Looks more likely now that the whole world first won't just be the 'dropping coaster' idea - that is if that will actually happen.

It was probably put there deliberately, to spark some discussion tongue.gif

I hope it is rethemed/painted to fit in with the new theme of the area smile.gif

Possibly changing the subtitle thing from queen of speed to an alternative. I think that the Rita bit should be kept as it would possibly confuse the general public if it were to be changed.

Hopefully Merlin will think about the areas consistency smile.gif

I think the most likely option for it is to get a totally new retheme along with SW6's theme. I am almost positive that this will happen because i'm sure that AT aren't stupid enough to make another horrific theme clash. I agree with hex, I think it would be better if AT kept the Rita part but just replaced the 'Queen of Speed' asto fit in with SW6's spooky theme.

If possible, I'd like Rita's name to be kept, but to have it turned into an acrostic. Would work nicely and hopefully a repaint to make it fit in well.
