Ive had this set of photographs lying around for some, Ive had a couple of offers from various people to publish them but I suppose ive been a bit selfish really and kept them to myself.
A bit of History about the ride. The Black hole is a Schwarzkopf Jet star 2 coaster with a length of 1919ft, Height of 44’3 and a duration of 1min 50 seconds. It was originally brought to Alton Towers as the Black hole in 1983 before going through a couple of name changes, New Black Hole, Black Hole 2 and finally back to Black hole again. The ride was closed in 2006.
So finally heres a set of photographs taken in July 2007 from inside the Black Hole Tent at Alton Towers.
From outside, some of the old artwork.
Some of the original theming still hanging about
A bit dark but showing the full dome.
Track lying across the floor

Clearly showing the supports still in place.
The ride cars.
The loading bay, still pretty much intact.
