Re: SW9

I agree with your logic Jack. Although, considering SW8 was originally planned to be for 2017 (delayed due to The Smiler crash, I think), I guess there is a slim possibility of the next SW coming in 2021, even if it's more than likely going to be 2022. I actually think it's possible that Alton might...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If people are looking for concept art of Wicker Man, might I suggest the Holovis video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqiIN2Z1fE4&t=14s Not sure if it's been posted yet but that's where I get Wicker Man concept art when I want it. Likely posted a while ago when it was first released. Tbh, it'...

Re: Inside Alton Towers - General Discussion

Something I think many of us feel (and this is very true of the general public as well), is that it didn't feel as though it was really a look inside Alton Towers, it felt like an hour long prime time advertisement for the park's new rollercoaster. I  completely agree with you Tom, about how they sh...

Re: Inside Alton Towers - General Discussion

Some enjoyable segments, although on the whole, it left me rather disappointed to be honest. Seeing concept art as well as some onsite footage of the installation and testing of the trains etc. was interesting to see.

I presume it's still open, although I saw that there was a corner of it that had been sectioned off a while ago.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

It's sad when we're coming to expect rubbish like this from the nations biggest (and best) theme park. They are so far away from meeting even an acceptable standard anymore. Just goes to show really. I fear we're past the point of no return, can we really expect anything to improve... ever? I have t...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Not sure about the car park situation. Depends how busy the park is and how quickly the admissions kiosks are processing people. If you have prebooked tickets (printed out, so you can scan them at the turnstiles), you should be able to go straight into the park, so that's one less queue to wait in. ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Projections on The Towers all day until late. All day?! Lol.

In seriousness, I've always thought that projections onto The Towers would have been a great idea during Fireworks and Scarefest, so pretty pleased that they're actually going to do something like that! :)

The white monorail has already been completely repaired and is back in operation. Hopefully they'll get the other one fixed just as quickly now!

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

I don't see why Merlin thought they wouldn't get away with having tents at Alton Towers. Europa Park have tents, so what? It's not the type of accommodation that matters at the end of the day, it's the standard that it is completed to that really matters. Does it have all the necessary facilities? D...
