Re: End of Season Review 2017

Well, where do I start? This season's been another absolute banger from the resort, and I'd like to start by thanking them for everything they've done to make this one the best yet. As well as this I had my very first ride on Hex in July, and needless to day, it was fantastic. The park was relativel...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

Agreed, having a western area in the UK would be like having a beach party in Birmingham Town Centre. I'd quite like them to keep the theme the same, however completely redesign the area. Cuckoo Cars injected a bit of life into the area, but thats really not going to last unless they invest in some ...

Re: Future of the Monorail

In my opinion, the monorail is an essential part of the Alton Towers Experience. I agree with the rest of the posts here, that it needs completely overhauling, but I think that with a new monorail system, new, redesigned trains and a much better hotel station it would be a great way of getting into ...

Re: Fireworks

I know people have been complaining that Alton' s themes are always a bit cheesefest, but isn't that what makes them so great? I honestly think that on videos, the best looking fireworks were this year's by miles.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm guessing so, but they'll be wanting the public to know that it's definitely safe after the smiler. They'll probably have been ordered to to more safety checks by the HSE after the incident as well.

Re: Warwick Castle

It's a shame that the mazes aren't as good as last year's as Tormented and Outbreak were my first ever scare mazes. Seance was a bit naff a couple of years ago so I'm glad they've brought it back with a bang! Sadly I couldn't make it to "the haunted castle" this year but watching everyone ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Somehow I think Merlin are saying Globally Unique because it will lead people to think there's a world first, while there isn't. It gives them a bit of wiggle room during the marketing.

Re: Scarefest

Honestly, RMT's gonna be busy all the time, but around lunch time or after 7pm is when I've personally seen it at it's quietest. As for Galactica, get it done as soon as possible after you enter the park, most people go straight to X Sector.

Your best bet would be Theme Park Music Looped, but if they don't have it I doubt anyone else will.

Re: Galactica

The VR really isn't great. Is be approved to see it last until 2020, what Merlin really need to do is add a bit more theming and really embrace the idea of space travel, but I don't see that happening unfortunately
