Wood Arrives Onsite At Alton Towers

Date Posted:

Monday 8th May 2017


Work on SW8 is continuing nicely! Footers are being poured left right and centre with the top end of the site looking complete and ready for rollercoaster construction! Meanwhile near the information kiosk near the edge of the site parts of the path have been dug up with new cables laid. Possibly for getting power to the SW8 site? 

As mentioned briefly in our previous construction update, the big news of the week is that rollercoaster manufacturers GCI are now onsite and setting up a workshop ready to build the rollercoaster over the next few weeks. With wood and metal brackets arriving on site over the weekend we expect that small sections of the ride will go vertical by the end of the month.
