Re: Congo River Rapids --- Future

The Congo River Rapids are THE best of all rapid rides in the UK. Possibly even one of the best water rides because it's so immersive and fits in perfectly with the landscaping, although Alton Towers haven't really taken much pride in maintaining this ride, like a lot of their attractions. It's one ...

Re: AT Waterpark Improvements

At the time Splash Landings and Cariba Creek was built, they weren't really competing with any other theme park in the United Kingdom, let alone anywhere else on the globe - The waterpark investment was already the dogs.. At this time, Alton Towers wanted to attract guests away from places such as C...

Re: 2010: Spinball Whizzer Re-Theme!

OH MY GOD! I've only just read about all the Sonic speculation, and I'm so hoping that this is going to be true! Sonic and Mario have made a big comeback since the release of the Nintendo Wii/DS, so this is perfect for Alton Towers Resort. It definately fits in with a more 'resorty' image that they'...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion.

I think it looks out of place and doesn't fit in with the new 'family' image of the Resort. It's not THORPE PARK?!

Re: The Bring Back Henry Hound Appeal

How the fudge has such a niche topic generated so much discussion? Why is it, that I always find it top of the general section? I'm sorry but I don't think we're going to see Henry back. It would be a step backwards for the park. While we're at it, should we maybe knock Air down and bring the Beast...

Eric is the only different character on the park and when i,ve seen him most children are scared of him. Disney never get rid of characters , butlins, ha...

Re: The Bring Back Henry Hound Appeal

I was on the 'Save Henry Hound' bandwagon a couple of years ago, but you have to agree that the new characters are very original, and suit Alton Towers' character a lot more than Henry Hound.. One thing I don't agree with, is Snorlix being a female character, yet being one of their main characters -...

Re: The Family VIP Service

I like the idea! However I feel it should be slightly more expensive, just to make the product seem more exclusive. I'd hate for people to use it willy-nilly when visiting the park - special occassions, and maybe even giveaways, like Disneyl do! I think it definately adds a magical element for guest...

I am the only one that thinks that moving around Forbidden Valley is huge ballache at the moment, especially with that Fish and Chip shop bunged in the middle.

Re: Alton Towers: 10 Year Plan Revealed!

I don't see the reason why they would need to relocated the Entrance. Firstly the infrastructure is already in place, such as the Monorail and Skyride - which have received quite abit of investment over the last couple of seasons. Also, are we sure that the rumour is for an entrance to the Theme Par...

Re: Annual Pass Restrictions

As long as these terms and conditions were in place when you purchased the pass, then I'm afraid there's little anyone can do. When purchasing a pass you agree to the terms and conditions in place, and it's entirely upto you whether you read them or not. In order for Merlin to provide pass holders w...

18. Ditch the Uniform! Staff should have themed costume matched to the area, and Welcome team should have something smarter. How cool are fleeces? :| /sarcasm

19. Use the Characters more, and make Snorlix Alton Towers' answer to Mickey Mouse!
