Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

Morgan, The VR does seem brighter in Part 3. I had the same opinion and felt I could see more when riding it the other weekend.

I'm going to give it another go a week on Sunday. Hopefully, it will be better and improvements are made in the meantime!

Re: If you owned ATR, what would you do with it?

I don't thing Nemesis needs too much at all. They could add a little more around the area or reinstall tv screens in the queue line to tell the story. Certainly on the other coasters, they could add preshow on the level of Wicker Man. It would even be nice to have music or sound effects added throug...

Re: If you owned ATR, what would you do with it?

I do believe this would be a realistic way of "updating" Towers and it would be a direction I'd love to see Alton Towers and Merlin Magic Making investigate further. We can see that the likes of The Gruffalo and Tiger Rock are a step forward at Chessington, and the refurbishment of Hex has...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I think the Storybook land is nice, but the only recently removed a very similar concept to put in CBeebies land. Removing the Storybook work, old Macdonald etc. A really interesting theme would be to go very steampunk for CCL, loads of smoke, steam and whistles, but obviously not another dark them...

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

I did reply briefly in the Shoutbox, but I would recommend checking out ridetimes.co.uk on the weekend following the Easter holidays. This may give you a rough guide of what to expect. Obviously, it will be hard to say for sure, but being September, I'd expect queues of 45-60 minutes for the top att...

Re: If you owned ATR, what would you do with it?

Unfortunately, it all comes down to money at the end of the day! I think now that Wicker Man has opened, which continues to receive high praise from many guests as a high quality themed attraction, I would revisit the other six rollercoaster and enhance the guest experience. Part of this would invol...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I could buy into the Storybook idea if it was quirky and themed to a high standard. The area is brightly coloured already, so that would save Alton some money when it came to reworking the area. I still think a magical Harry Potter style (Not IP) area would work well, but your idea may be more appea...

Re: Land of the Tiger - New for 2018

I'm hoping it brings the charm back to the area. When they removed that iconic facia a few years back, the area didn't feel the same and it felt very tired and Dragon Falls felt very much like a standard log flume. Seeing this work being done excites me. I'm sure it will be a great addition, especia...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

https://i.imgur.com/9VQtr3V.jpg So, 150 minutes for Galactica! What has gone wrong? A 2.5 hour wait for this attraction is unacceptable, especially when the queue line makes no attempt to separate those who wish to ride with VR from those who don't. I visited 2 weeks ago and the queuing system was ...

It is worth checking out ridetimes.co.uk for the latest queue times. At the time of writing, Wicker Man id showing 60 minutes, which is about right as some people break off for lunch! :)
