Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

So.... we could get another 80s themed concert... fingers crossed they at least want to do something a bit more imaginative than that. They could invest in something more long term.... like some new rides :P

Re: Duel - General Discussion

I think it's a lot more atmospheric than the old. Although I think the old music better suited the type of ride that it was. It's like they want Duel to be both an amazing haunted house and a laser shooting dark ride... regardless, I still like it better than the old music!

It is a pretty unique colour scheme. At first I wasn't that keen, but I actually think it works really well now! :)

Re: Scarefest

It's sounding like this Scarefest will be pretty similar to the last one in terms of the main attractions. I hope The Welcoming returns alongside a new zone near Wicker Man with the Beornen and fire dancers etc., and I also hope that we get some new scare zones around the rest of the park, even if t...

Re: Scarefest

That would probably explain why I've been hearing that the Towers have been closed so early this year..

Yep, that would be one of my main worries about covering the entire ride up.

Re: Are you allowed a GoPro camera on the rollercoasters?

No Merlin attraction (or any major theme park in the UK) has ever allowed any sort of camera equipment on rides to my knowledge.  I'm pretty sure there has been a few requests for filming on board the rides that were granted permission. There is a fairly recent POV of Nemesis for example, which the...

Re: Are you allowed a GoPro camera on the rollercoasters?

Asking the park in advance seems the best way to go about it, like Dan said. It's not like you've got anything to lose from asking if it's possible. Although, I suspect they will also take into account your reason for wanting to film on the rides as well as wether or not your equipment is safe to us...

Yeah, it'd be great if they added a Wicker Man segment to the light show! :)
