Re: Future of the Monorail

The monorail has to stay, it is an intergral part of the park. if they had some TLC and a clean up, then I think it would give new life to the transport ride.

Re: SW8

I remember a few years ago that Sconic Spinball would be moved somewhere else in the aprk, so adventureland would have something new. I read that before the smiler was constructed, so if you can understand how long ago that was, but I still thin they will as the dragon coaster is SBNO.

Re: Is the Dark Forest meant to look bad?

I went when Th13teen first opened, and thought it looked good. While it was lacking in theming, it is what I would expect from a British themepark. An improvment from Ug land, as prehistoric in a themepark with a rollercoaster and a racetrack themed one does not feel right. If they planted more tree...

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

I do not remember the year I visited, but it was the Runaway Mine Train Coaster. Or, if you want to be picky, then the momorail from the hotel to the park. ;)

Re: The Future of Mutiny Bay

Great idea, and I agree that the staff need to talk like Pirates to have complete immersion in the area. However, a water thrill ride should replace the flume or maybe re-theme the baths into mini boats

Re: Alton Towers Hotel

Overall, I like this hotel, the rooms are clean and the staff and very friendly. The surrounding gardens are smashing and really nice to relax in after a day at the park. Having said that, the restaurant is not as good as the one in the other hotel and breakfast is chaos every morning. Still, it is ...

Re: Formula 1

Kimi is proberly the best driver at the moment. He is good in the car, and the best interviewee! Webber is the just terrible and complains all the time as his team mate, while arrogant, is a better driver and they support him more. Still, Vettl will win Red Bull the championship, not Webber. Hamilto...

Hopefully, the glass floor would give a view of the ride and the secret area, but not spoiler it all together. Like what is said above, one way glass

I hope their next ride is better than the Wallace and Gromit ride, as it needs a new attraction that will be groundbreaking

Re: Alton Towers Hotel

I think the hotel clean, fresh and the staff are very helpful ande polite. The entertainment is an absolute cheese fest and despite being over the target age group, the magician is very funny, due to his reactions to the hildren. Food is good, and nothing special, and but their eggs need some work! ...

Re: Alton Towers 2013 Map

As a map, they are not the best, but as a work of art, and a marketing tool to get you into the park, it is fantastic. They make the park look fantastic!

I have read that article, and it is a shame that nothing has been put into the old building. Maybe in the future something will take over this space.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach 2013: Wallace & Gromit dark ride

From what I have seen, it is not as good as I have seen. The dark areas ruins the good scenes, and the show scenes are not even in order of films. Personally, it has so much potential, and loked good while it was built but it falls flat at the last hurdle.
