Earlier today Alton Towers Resort updated the official SW7 page (found athttp://www.altontowers.com/2013) with a refreshed look but curiously removed the countdown to the rides opening.
Rumours within the theme park community have been circulating for months over the potential for the ride to be delayed, these rumours were fuelled even more when TowersTimes took to the skies and photographed the construction site from the air (these photos can be found on our SW7 Minisite, located here) and revealed that so far only a small amount of the ride had actually been installed.
No official word has come from Alton Towers Resort yet, although call centre staff have continued to advise potential visitors that they intend to have the ride open in time.
TowersTimes will update you when we hear more!
Are you intending to visit on opening day? Would SW7 not being ready have an impact on your day? Join in the discussion on the largest Alton Towers Forum: TowersTimes Forum
