Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'd love to visit over the winter to have more of a chilled day with friends. The opening weekend snow days this year were brilliant!

Ahhh yes, the station master!
He was brilliant when we went through and certainly added to that ride. Just remember the carriage may swing "From side to side!" as you board! :lol

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It is still a very similar show though. I'd compare that to Jack the Ripper section at London.

The Smugglers at Blackpool is also similar to Sweeney Todd at London!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This year's survey is now online. http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Alton-Towers-Resort-2018/ Please take the time to fill it in. It is one way of letting Alton know your thoughts. This year, the focus is very much on the rides, especially Galactica. At the end, don't forget to leave your comments abou...

That is very true! :lol

You are certainly not going to get specific characters relating to Alton, therefore it will be just the scripts that relate to Alton!

Re: Project 2020

The hotel can still be built as technically ground has been broken, therefore construction has begun.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It won't be based purely on Alton Towers history. The scripts will tie in with the area, but only in the sense of the Plague Doctor mentioning the deceased in the local area etc, or the Highway Men looting a carriage along the tracks of Alton. Other than that, it will be your standard Dungeons expe...

Re: Logger's Leap

They can't be trusted :lol In a way, it could devalue their social media channels if they post too many as wind ups as people will think their posts are unreliable. They could have stated it was Rocky in their original post, but instead the lead people and got people again :lol Good going, Thorpe :lol

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

Rumba did begin to have some TLC but that seems to have stopped? It would be nice to see more of a story/theme applied to the area, like they were doing when they added a few things to related it to Inferno.

Re: SW9

I cant see it being a water ride where guests have a chance of getting wet, but I am confident it will be a coaster. Thorpe proved that dark rides investments don't work as replacements for coasters. These should be in addition to and not instead of!
