Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Another not so good thing about the ERT is that it will only be available to onsite hotel guests and MAP holders.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Unfortunately this one positive will be overshadowed by the numerous negatives. Wicker Man should have been part of ERT and open at the beginning of the season regardless.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Looks like what I'd previously heard was true after all. I'm really not happy with this at all. I hate to say this , but if the park really are that short on cash, they really shouldn't have bothered with Wicker Man. I've said this before, that 2018 should have been a comeback year for Towers... wel...

Re: Theme Music

TowersStreet have published an interview with IMAscore co-founder, Andreas Kübler. It's an interesting read for sure, so I'd recommend checking it out! :)

Re: Towers Loving Care

It's good to see the TLC on Nemesis finally getting finished! I just hope that after this they continue to maintain it so it doesn't get in to such a bad state again.

Looking good though! :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I have to admit, it did look as though it was released a bit too soon, as it appeared to show way to much of the actual ride and the Wicker Man itself. :)

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I think that the actor thing makes this quite a tricky thing for Alton Towers to solve. That is if they don't want to spend the money on actors anyway. Nemesis: Sub Terra is an experience - the ride itself is only a small part of it - so when you remove other aspects of the experience, as a whole, i...

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: 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...
