Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

Just to be awkward, but I see people keep saying the Mutiny Bay has too many attractions, what are they? To me there just is Battle Galleons, Sharkbait Reef and the old teacups. There is that ship that spins around while moving on a track. can't remember its name though I refer you to my above post...

You’re forgetting the fantastical mega-thrill ride that is Heave Ho.

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

The area could be easily renamed something like Alton Harbour and still harbour (see what I did there :D) a pirate theme alongside SW8. It could be themed as a sort of port area with SW8 being ‘The Village’ further inland.

I saw it, but I won't say anything. Lets just say if true, it confirms something big.

Also I do like what Aidan said about the 3 stages. I'd love it if the coaster ran on a 3 train service and each train had one of those themes attached.

Could you say something on private message?   :lol

Re: SW9

And what Merlin don’t seem to understand is that if marketed well, flat rides can easily draw in crowds. Hopefully they have seen that with the Cbeebies Land flat this year.

Re: Scarefest

So tonight was the staff preview evening for Scarefest, and I was lucky enough to go, and after experiencing The Welcoming I only have one word; WOW. I'm spoiling absolutely NOTHING, but I can't recommend it enough, if you can, definitely go and experience it! Unfortunately I’m not going to be able...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I really don’t think the best thing to do would be to remove another ride. AT is already poor value for money as it is.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I never said that I was ungrateful... I merely just thought it more logical to use the real rock that AT already have.  I know, I was being sarcastic. Much of the real rock that AT have is being used as path borders. It doesn't seem like they have excavated much from the SW8 site as it looked to be...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Well... I quite enjoyed the update! It's great to see some of the theming coming together! I also really like the way the station theme is going with the weathered wood cladding. I also really like the idea of having a rock wall, but they could have used real rick couldn't they?! Still, I'm sure on...

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

It worked well when it was Merrie England so something similar to that would be nice. A fishing harbour would be nice too and the current rides and attractions could easily fit in.

Not heard the Mystic Timbers audio from IMA Score, but I really enjoyed Helix audio from them, I haven't been able to listen to DBGT audio much cause its usually always broken down :lol However I'm sure whoever they go with, (Hopefully IMA Score), we'll get a great audio soundtrack from the provide...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Towers have also been doing a lot of work with Nick, with Mutiny Bay, Many Scarefest Soundtracks and (I think) Christmas. All I know is, we'll be getting some great audio, from a great composer, be it IMAScore or Nick Hutson, to go along with a great ride experience, a great theme and some great me...

I wonder if were gonna get an epic IMA score soundtrack There will be. :) You never know, could be nick hutson. I reckon that with all the recent work Towers have done with IMA Score, it will probably be them. It wouldn't surprise me if it had already been done when they did the Herritage soundtrac...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

This brick paving is traditional at Alton Towers and I think we should be grateful that we're getting block paving unlike the plain concrete that we got on the last SW.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Have to say slightly disappointed with this. I think Alton need to lighten up the atmosphere a little bit. I was at the park last week and thought how dark a lot of the theming was. I think Merlin need to learn you can do theming and story without everything being dark and sinister. Galactica is a ...
