Re: Fantasy Island

It's not the best marketing ever. Thorpe Park and Cedar Point are on islands, this park is on an old car park!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

It sounds like it would be an interesting addition, it unfortunately would be a dark theme though.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The Alton Towers customer service team did not mention any of this on the phone. They just said 'sorry, there are no offers on for schools'.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Sorry to double-post here but I was thinking it would be nice if Merlin and IMAScore did something similar for Wicker Man, including all the audio from the different areas.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

I don't understand why Merlin would want to install another attraction with a very high amount of staff being needed to operate the attraction. Soon after opening it will likely become seasonal.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I understand this might not be down to budgetary reasons from Merlin, but I think the fact that people assume this is the reason, it shows Merlin's reputation at this point in time. However I believe this needs to be fixed sharply because I have heard people in my town 2 hrs away from the park call ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Unfortunately it is Merlin that won't give the parks the correct budgets. Perhaps this is to change if Wicker Man is seen as a success for Alton Towers Resort and the wider Merlin group.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

With Galactica the reason I found for the slow moving queue was indeed the demand for it. The queue was going up past the VR no VR merge (which was very close to the station) so once we got to the merge point and noticed that non VR was walk on we were left a little disappointed due to this.
