Alton Towers 2013: New Coaster
Alton Towers is planning to build a massive vertical drop coaster in 2013, and the park recently filed for permits to build the new coaster. The manufacturer seems to be Gerstlauer, and the layout of the coaster looks exciting and compact.
Below you can see some photos of the ride’s twisted layout:
In true Alton Towers fashion, the ride will contain themed elements, however those were not made known at the time of the application filing. If approved, construction on this coaster would begin in September of 2012.
Below you can see a video with more shots of the ride’s layout.
