If you look closely, you can see the outline of the Thorpe Park logo:

I think it really is ridiculous that they have to close one hotel because they can’t fill it yet they keep building hotels!?

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

AT also released this image when they were using Train 1 to film the advert so something similar may happen with SW8...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

Agreed, having a western area in the UK would be like having a beach party in Birmingham Town Centre. I'd quite like them to keep the theme the same, however completely redesign the area. Cuckoo Cars injected a bit of life into the area, but thats really not going to last unless they invest in some...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I think a theme that Alton is really missing is a western theme so I think a western town similar to that of Far West at PortAventura would really work well in CCL.

Re: Future of the Monorail

I recall something about both the Monorail and the Skyride being in line to have some TLC over this closed season but I can’t remember where I read it or if I actually did? I’m pretty sure there was something because I remember suggesting somewhere that the trains of the monorail should be themed to...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Everyone believed The Smiler was going to be called The Innoculator or The Marmaliser because these names were trademarked in a similar style so until Alton Towers confirms the name, it is not a definite that the ride will be called Wickerman.

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.

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...
