Re: Madame Tussauds London

Alien Escape is open!
And is okay with beautiful sets but is criminally short and very over priced. Would not have done it if I hadn't been a passholder. 
The Sherlock one is pretty good though! Very enjoyable.

Re: SW9

I like the idea of a water one!! It would be very unique, and something that might actually have the chance of being an actual worlds first... Personally, if I could choose the backstory, I'd love it to be about adventure and discovery. Sort of like a long forgotten cave or something where you get t...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

I'd like a little extra theming in the outside area and in the queue line. I think that would be a lovely touch to revive the ride and could be used to help update the story.

Re: Potential Galactica backstory?

Personally, I think it might be interesting if one of the planets you visit in your journey was the planet that the Nemesis creature came from. It would be interesting if while flying through, you encountered either another nemesis creature, or other creatures that have the same overall design. It w...

Re: Will AT become obsolete with the new Paramount park?

I agree. The paramount park will probably never get built anyway? That's what I'm thinking. It just doesn't look likely by this point, and even if it does go through, it looks like it will be heavily underfunded. Alton Towers does have budget issues, but at least they're trying new things and creat...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Personally, I don't think Thorpe are the best at naming their sections. Old Town has always managed to get on my nerves, that one doesn't seem to fit either, just like Dockyard. That said, I do like the names Lost City and Amity, and those do work. I agree with Dom that Yard would be more effective,...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

So have the soft openings stopped? Or is it all for Saturday now then? As I will be venturing to Alton on Saturday, again :P The soft openings haven’t started yet. All Towers are saying is that it’s unlikely it’ll open tomorrow morning due to there still being quite a bit of snow and ice to clear, ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I agree! The weather was beyond dangerous, and although I was sad that they didn't open Wicker Man, I didn't blame Alton Towers. They were incredible this weekend, and really showed the best of the company, making changing tickets as easy and hassle free as possible, and handing out refunds for hote...

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

I really hope you are right (because it really should be its own area), but wouldn't it say its own area like how Swarm has its own section called the Swarm Island, rather than just 'near' something?

Wicker Man is in Mutiny Bay. 

If you go to the website, https://www.altontowers.com/media/5546/2018-map.pdf , there is a clearer version of the map, and I was able to find this there.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

There is some very good merchandise of an extremly high quality. It is certainly on another level. I've spent rather a lot this weekend, including a Wicker Man jacket not pictured! http://i.imgur.com/MRv3OS0.jpg Nice Haul Justin! That merchandise looks incredible, especially the frame.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I think that the Dock Yard has something to do with the safe zone in the Walking Dead ride, where you maybe have to get to the safe zone because it's an 'island' and the zombies can't swim so they can't get there (haven't seen walking dead but sometimes this is used as an excuse that an area is safe...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It’s a shame the weather was the way it was, but I think Alton Towers deserves commendations for how well they dealt with the shift with Wicker Man.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I don’t think it’s worth risking it. The weather seems too awful in my opinion.

Also....

March 24th (next Saturday) has rain but a wind speed of only 11mph and a high of 9 degrees Celsius. That’s a maybe, right?
