Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Was on park today, the ride operations were good and the park was quiet. Nemesis was on two trains and the sky ride opened around 11am. I would have like to see the DF rides opened at least at 10.30.  I would hope that the  staggered opening times would be abolished during busy days and events. A st...

Great to see that I'm not alone in disliking football or watching/taking part in most sports  :evil:

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I can't say where it begins from the hotel, it used to be from The Alton Towers Hotel gardens which are now where CBeebies hotel is now.    Yes it does take you near where the Blade is, but I can't tell you what time it will be operating from.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This is brilliant news, lets hope that this is more long term for the rest of the season as well as future seasons.

Also note that apparently the sky ride don't open until 12 noon

Maybe with all the staff cuts, the scare mazes are going to take twice as long to construct  :lol

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I wouldn't be surprised if it will get a re-theme/re-name next season.   Market it as a whole new ride? ;) I do think it will just be the Vr removal and anything associated with the headsets I don't like to repeat things that Staff members tell me due to they often don't seem to materialise. I was ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

From what I here on the park from one member of staff yesterday, the staggered opening times are here to stay for the rest of the season and so far they think it's a success and there are plans for more things to be implemented next year.  This has only come from one member of staff and may not repr...

I've always think a fountain show on the lake will look fantastic, especially if used in conjunction with the end of the season fireworks

Re: Enchanted Village Expansion 2018 - 2021

I agree, there is no point in building more accommodation if they can't fill the old ones, however on paper it looks great as it will increase the value of the resort in capital value and will sure please the Merlin share holders.

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

If my memory serves me correct, back in the day, the parade used to come in from the gates in-between the Oblivion toilets and where the Carnival of Screams zone.  It would head up towards the towers and turn left down towards splash galleons and then head to Cbeebies land and through a gate there. ...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

The parade was never popular when I visited back in the late 80's.  They rarely got an audience watching it, that all two floats that was.   I do miss the circus show that they used to have, the would have two performances, one in the afternoon and the second one would start as the park closes, whic...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Been to the park today and it’s fair to say I was pretty impressed, despite the negative comments I’ve seen in particular on Trip Advisor. Due to traffic and queues for both the monorail and tickets (park seemed busy for an off peak Thursday) we didn’t actually get in until nearly 12pm. Wicker Man ...

Re: Enchanted Village Expansion 2018 - 2021

I too agree, 

Why do me need more accommodation when Splash landings is closed for most of the year and they don't have the money to run the theme park properly?????
