Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

Thanks Joe for pointing out that they have to plant trees before it opens. Should make the area look quiet nice once they grown a bit! Also, I did notice that some vegetation had already been planted in some areas, I was just wondering if we would see any actual trees planted at some point (which it...

Re: February Half Term 2018

I'm not too familiar with this event, but I'm presuming that those Pirates of Mutiny Bay shows won't  be performed in Mutiny Bay's Courtyard if they don't get a move on with dismantling The Welcoming?  With the exception of Sharkbait Reef, the theme park is closed during the FHT event. All of the e...

Re: Mutiny Bay Smokehouse

I have to agree, I too am slightly worried how that area of the park is going to cope with the larger numbers of people wanting to use the current food and beverages offerings. One thing I have heard suggested is the possibility that Towers might have Towers Street Bar open for more of the year, alt...

Re: Mutiny Bay Smokehouse

I'm really not sure how reliable this is, but according to TowersStreet Facebook page, the Smokehouse in Mutiny Bay will now not be opening for 2018.

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

If I'm honest, it'd seem like a bit of a design flaw to have the ORP right at the entrance of the ride, and not near the exit. One thing I was wondering, does anyone else think that we could be seeing some trees / more vegetation planted around the ride area, or are they just going to leave it to gr...

Re: Towers Loving Care

(Sorry for the double post!) Another interesting update from TowersStreet, the entrance plaza is having new concrete barriers and bollards installed. I just hope they do something with the concrete blocks as they look absolutely horrible, but obviously they need to take these precautions after all t...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I mean, if Towers were desperate to expand CBeebies without using up any more back stage areas, then Spinball is really the only option. Considering the council also are keen for the rides removal, I do think it to be likely to go at some point in the near future. It is a fun little ride and very po...

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

Please, no. No remix of the soundtrack. It's perfect the way it is. Atmospheric and fits the theme of the area very well. As for Nemmy herself, at the moment I think she's in a fine condition, however in the future, I too would like to see an overhaul so that the ride can be kept at the park, and ye...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Heres my thoughts on Wicker Man's "worlds first". In the official press release from Alton Towers, they are saying " Wicker Man is the world’s first rollercoaster experience fusing wood and fire" Which, as many have pointed out, there are other wooden coasters which also make use...

The Smokehouse is not happening I believe.

If that's true, I'm quite disappointed. It's definitely somewhere I'd have dined, and with all the advantages that Kraken pointed out, makes it seems a like a missed opportunity... I still have some hope though.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I guess Merlin are really wanting to capitalise on the Secret Weapon brand. I'm kinda viewing this series as them emphasising the importance of SW8, by comparing to the other well known coasters at the park. I actually really like this little count down to the announcement on Monday... it gives abso...
