Alton Towers to scrap Corkscrew

Just in case you haven't heard the iconic Corkscrew is to go when the park closes for the season this year.So you have just a few weeks to get your last ride in! :shock:
Black Hole RIP
Corkscrew (soon) RIP
What next ?

Here's my review from my last ride:

The ride has been rumoured to be leaving for some time but it is now confirmed as going. Alton Towers will be hosting a Goodbye event, as they did when the Black Hole was closed, on Sunday, 9th November.

I wonder what the new World's first of it's kind ride ( I think coaster) that will replace the corkscrew area in 2010 will be :?: There is a mention at the end of this report.
