Re: Scarefest

Wouldn't the food stalls be in the way if the queue was to go that side? Also, I think it was reported in a write up that the entrance would be on Towers Street by Birmingham Mail?

Overall, I'm looking forward to it!

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Looking forward to seeing it again at SF. It is only when you see it in person that you can truly see the scale of things!

The all-new VR element will be available at Legoland Malaysia Resort, Legoland Florida Resort and Legoland Deutschland Res...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

With the hotel opening, an expansion of Cbeebies is very likely. Hopefully, CCL will receive a makeover/retheme with new rides first, but it does unfortunately come down to money and budgets which I think would be redirected to Cbeebies first.

Re: The Drawing Board: Dark Forest Concepts

I find it interesting how The Quarry was dismissed. I suppose it was too similar to UG land in terms of appearance and industrial compared to X Sector. The Ghost Rider theme I just cant see myself at Alton!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I must agree, unless the theming structure has a dark internal structure to make it appear the figure is smouldering?

The Drawing Board: Dark Forest Concepts

https://i.imgur.com/X2bkCco.png I've just been looking at the Towers Times site and the internet to find out more about past areas and thought I'd post a bit on the forum to spark a little bit of discussion too. The first area I decided to look into further was the Dark Forest , which was commissio...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Wasn't it said a while back that the other theming structure was scrapped?

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I don't think it even needs a coaster, just some decent flats (family and thrill) as Burniel suggested. If Spinball was to be removed and relocated to make way for the Cbeebies expansion, then that may be an option.

Some say he has gone back in time to another dimension, but yes, there will be a space inside for work to continue on the theming structure!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

In certain parts of the country, half term starts on Friday 20th September, so it may be busy. I hope not though as I'm down that day!

Re: Scarefest

It will be strange, but then again, with all the lighting it may not be too bad. The reopening of N:ST could help though, although that is just my wishful thinking! I posted this in the SW8 Speculation thread too, but do you think the SW8 site will be lit up? Just imagine the atmosphere if they had ...

Re: Fright Nights

https://i.imgur.com/8Y4esCC.png Outrageous. They are really taking advantage! I don't agree with this price hike, especially when everything was hiked up last year!! It is becoming out of the reach of so many. I know they have to retain their exclusivity but last year's price was bad enough!

Re: Best/Worst places to eat in Alton Towers?

There are places I avoid, but that is because I've felt unwell after. This is just me though and every FB outlet should be meeting a minimum standard. They should be much of a much.
