Air

Recommended Posts

It's good to see Towers hopefully sorting out one of their lesser themed coasters (except Rita), however they need to do s good job with improving this in order to bring back guests next year.

The tunnel will be the answer to as whether the changes will be a good thing.

Really looking forward to this. It will be great to see air looking a lot better then it is at the moment. Probably won't be open for Feb though but I'm happy that they are giving it a bit of love :)

The new Alton Towers edited 2016 logo URL says 'Air-Space-Logo', could Air be going to space?!

 

Would make sense with the rumoured VR headsets, which would make that possible... also remove the air tunnel problem by not being able too see it  :lol:

Didn't Merlin recently trademark some space-like names (Galactica or something)?  Could add up!

Air as a thrill coaster sends me to sleep, but I don't think I would want a VR headset on it - unless it is optional.

 

It's not a thrill coaster and it has never been advertised as one.

Least you know how we feel about PMBO...

 

I'm not a fan of this VR stuff, just screams as an easy cop-out for lazy operators to not put any effort into the ride...

Haha, I've always said that everyone is entitled to their own opinion!

It is advertised on the map as a thrill ride I think, it is really more of a family ride but the height restriction is too high.

It is one of their big rides which sort of makes it a thrill ride in Alton towers' eyes... And by that logic so does 13.

Air isn't that scary and I do find it pretty boring... But if it was more immersive with themeing like it was supposed to have originally or even something new then I look forward to it!

Th13teen is absolutely thrilling don't even start.

 

I enjoy air, it's fun over anything else though. Nothing particularly intense or incredible (besides being the first of it's kind!) however as a different experience of ride it works, it just doesn't slot into forbidden valley very well (although I've always pictured it as an oasis at the bottom of like a fall-out ridden valley...)

Where is it advertised on the map as a thrill ride?

Wasn't air supposed to be the oasis the other side of forbidden valley... The good side - if it was actually themed with water features and lots of plants etc. Then it would have looked so nice, but it's just sort of feels out of place as it wasn't done properly and there we no story :/

I seem to remember it being on the ride list a few years ago (back when they categorised them as thrill and family rides rather than by area).

I'm guessing that's more to do with the height restriction

 

Can't really say something is a family ride when it has a 1.4m restriction

 

I find the section on your back a bit intense and can imagine someone under 1.4 finding it uncomfortable to say the least
