Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

I'm surprised they're closing it for such a long amount of time! Must have quite a lot planned.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

That is so good to see! I surprised they have opened it so early, but I'm not complaining! Must mean most of what they need is onsite, at least until end of the season.

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I guess the cost would just depend on what extent they wanted to change things.

Thanks a lot! Hopefully Storm Brian won't make Big One close all the time, due to high winds :)

It's why we've postponed our trip to Towers until next weekend as we didn't want to risk travelling for four hours and have rides closing all day! Have a good time at Blackpool though! :)

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

Yes, I agree that would be a way they can do a retheme, and to be honest, the more pirate theming the better, in my opinion. Possibly another way they could do a retheme of the pirate stuff is just to make some minor alterations so that it looks more tribal. The Alton Village could be hosting a fair...

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I must agree with that, Capt. Barnacles. Mutiny Bay has too many attractions which just wouldn't work as part of an Alton Village theme. Take Sharkbait Reef as an example. That wouldn't fit in well, and there is also all the pirate theming which would be costly to remove as Capt. B said. That said, ...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

After hearing that Merlin have gained attraction rights to Peppa Pig, I see an opetrunity for them to open a ride or attraction in CCL to this theme, possibly a dark ride in CATCF building perhaps? I think it makes quite a bit of sense, and Merlin will already have been able to see how popular Pepp...

Re: Enchanted Village Expansion 2018 - 2021

I wonder if this indicates that some of the new lodges in the expansion might follow the designs of some of the original concept art? The lodges in these styles could be referred to as "Barrels" rather than "Lodges" perhaps? https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/0...

I imagine there will be fences around the site and most likely there will be security guards at any entrances or exits.

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Interesting how Merlin always blame external factors for poor performance. Never themselves... Yes, but technically there are external factors like the rise in terror attacks, not just in the UK, but around Europe, which has undoubtedly had an effect on many different attractions, many of them bein...

Leigh, when I have a bit of spare time, I'll have a look around the internet... I'm sure I'll be able to find it!  :) Hi Robert, do you have any update? No, unfortunately not. I wonder if anyone who has the Scarefest app would be able to get the music for you though. I'll definitely keep a look out...

Dragons furry is already at Chessington, so moving it to Thorpe doesn't seem logical at all. One of the Lego parks maybe?

Good idea! Legoland need some better rides for older children.

Re: The Drawing Board: Dark Forest Concepts

Dragon Lair seems interesting... I can sort of imagine how Thi3teen might tie in with this theme with some adjustments as well. Perhaps when Rita is gone, they could explore this theme a little more. It would give Towers an oppertunity to have an immersive area themed around a more light hearted ide...
