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...

Re: Explorer Glamping

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

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Great pictures Aidan! This is already looking amazing nearly six months before next season! I can't wait to ride this ride when it opens, the themeing alone just looks incredible!

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...

Re: Alton Towers - Music and Videos

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.

Phild94, I completely agree with that idea. Would love to see some new flats in FV, DF and XS.

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...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

The name London Resort has been around since Paramount left the deal. And whilst the name London Resort sounds quite cool in my opinion, I also believe they will change it according to what new licences or deals they manage to get. I can still see how the name London Resort might appeal, especially ...

Hi Lakey! 

Yeah... it's kinda easy to accidentally merge the discussion between the actual ride and the area it's in. :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I get what you mean, S.J_O'Grady, but theme wise, I still think that SW8 fits reasonably well into Gloomy Wood. I think it's that we're all used to Gloomy Wood being so small and never considered that it could take up any more space than it already occupies. Gloomy Wood at the moment is sort of just...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Yeah, I have to agree with you, Loakin, about the Mutiny Bay retheme speculation. Personally I love Mutiny Bay as it is. Nice selection of rides, good food and beverage choices, and most importantly, strong theming. I doubt Towers would just throw all this away, for what could be a more obscure them...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Nice, but not as prestigious as the old Paramount one. Has a more contemporary feel to it. It's also interesting to see how prominent London and the UK are featured in the marketing for this resort.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Heading down there on Thursday and Friday next week.  What's the route for accessing River Rapids and Mine Train? The SW8 path that does from Mutiny Bay to Gloomy Wood and then the usual path from Gloomy Wood to Katanga Canyon. You could also take the Haunted Hollow path to Gloomy Wood rather than ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I got hand stamps every single year since 2009, never heard of them using wristbands. Hmm... that's strange. It was the 21st when we went last year - the first day of the main Scarefest event, possibly they ran out of hand stamps, or were using both methods and just pure chance which you get given?...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

They stamp your hand, just let the staff at the gates know and they’ll be happy to help! :) They must be doing it differently to last year. I'd have thought wrist bands would have been easier though. It’s because stamps can be done once and then if people would like to leave again they’ve already g...
