Alton Towers is now advising guests that it has “no specific opening date” for its new rollercoaster, currently dubbed SW7.
The ride’s opening was initially advertised as 16 March, but delays with construction recently led the park to remove a countdown timer and references to the date from its website.
Last week Alton Towers said that it was still working towards opening the ride for the start of the season.
However, today the park’s guest services manager June Berrisford said: “At present we don’t have a specific ride opening date, but we are working towards the early part of the season.”
The ride’s final name has not yet been released, although its trademark smiling face logo has begun to appear on advertising posters in several cities around the country.
Alton Towers continues to advise that updates with regards to the project will be posted on its website.
