I don't know when this is from but here's Alton Tower's potential development map.

The flume site is zone 3 and it states that an appropriate development would be 'redevopment for leisure' which considers surrounding trees.

I know we already know the location but I found it interesting that this area has always been labelled as one to be developed.

As for the layout, I doubt that's really it, as the majority of layouts change over time. Saying that, I hope this is the layout, because it looks like a woodie!

Edit: Again, credit to TowersStreet for this image of the proposed layout placed into the surrounding area.

I predict SW8 will open before WC16...

I look forward to seeing "AQUATRAX" posts for the next 2 years.

Haha, that wooden coaster plan was the cross valley and was rumoured years ago...

 

As for the lines, I doubt it's duelling, suggestion of the side lines being the reach point of riders and such... Since there's only a singular line in the station and other indoor section...

 

For now, little to go on... So I'll just watch the insanity for now...

There are so many pirate themed rollercoasters that aren't made of wood

For example.. Piraten! ;)

I'd like to hope it self duels in a möbius loop like Twisted Colossus. That could be the reason for the different inclinations of the lift slope. So, the fist could be 12 degrees followed by a second larger hill of twice the inclination. It could make for a good ride, having a slower first section followed by a larger grand finale. Probably, though, it is just one track that accounts for clearance.

This is a single track wooden coaster by the looks of things. Zooming in on the station there is only 1 line and the words 'Station Slopes downwards' and then states the heights of either end which works out as 0.5m difference . Something very common for old fashioned wooden coasters.

Something also to note is the high point of the ride is 18m with the rides station being 0m.

If it is only supposed to be 10m of the ground and based on the fact it seems to have a strangely sloped lift hill maybe it will be a launched woody?

You took the words right out of my mouth.

Again, I'm going to be pessimistic because I really want this to be an RMC but I don't want to be dissapointed. Saying this, I'd be happy with a GCI or a mega-lite type ride.

Will they have to submit that much though? Let's face it, they're going to hide as much as they can so it might not reveal much. If there's a large station building we know the SW... the washing machine element! Us geeks gave Merlin the idea, they made a graphic for it and have had 5 years to develop it. Solved it.
