I'd say volcano peices for Inferno, but it'd be way to high poly. Unless you think otherwise, normal terraforming should do :p

The main street wall peices.

As in the street with the 4d cinema on.

It's approx 40m high so far, and it's beginning to twist over and bend inwards towards the top :)

^the new ride open next year.

Dentonator is ok, but only when the que is short. Ridden it before so not too bothered, as long as nothing else is closed. I nonly live 30 mins away so i will go at easter again when stealth opens for sure......

Just Tussauds actually- Madame Tussauds is the waxwork attraction. And they didn't create Alton Towers, they own it.

Sorry to be picky! :up: :D

It's more like a mini KingdaKa clone. Same layout, 200 feet smaller.

By the way the pics still don't work.
