Its an aircraft tire.

Also, sometimes the manufacturer gives the parks "options" when it comes to themeing. They dont have to use it, but they probably get it included if they choose to use it.

I assume its a template used by Intamin to further make it VERY easy for parks to get these rockets and pitch em up with some small themeing for a great price.

The station is nearly identical to that of Ritas, which again tends to prove your above point there Real. The station is the same just with a different selection of theming. Anyway, Stealth looks like it will be a blast and i'll hopefully be at Thorpe soon after it opens

Don't forget that both Alton & Thorpe (+ Chessington) are under the Tussauds group. All their rides themeing is done in-house by Tussauds Studios.

I would have thought that Tussauds would have learnt from Rita and changed the station layout as it really is awqward for all concerned - Riders, Staff, Throughput.

Still...I shall be watching progress.

We had a running joke about this at work that perhaps Tussauds ordered one too many giant tyres, and have to get rid of them somehow.

You wait 5 months...they'll be giving them away as prizes on pay-2-play games[:D]

[lol]! Tussauds usualy do a good job on theming so i sure as hell aint complaining. I also like the tires, i doesnt waste valuable time trying to actualy find the queue line. Many times ive found myself walking around a ride to just try and find the queue
