Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Whoooah. Anyone seen anything like this before? Not sure about Stealth and Rita, but as they're much smaller scale I can see them staying open. However, I can see the potential closure of Kingda Ka, and maybe RedForce.

Re: Ride pin badges

My absolute fave is my 2017 Rita Pin, it's an absolute beaut, but I carefully Pick and Choose mine. Nemmy's never had a good pin in my eyes, other than Neme21s a couple of years back!

Haim are one of my fave bands, but they never seen to get the recognition they deserve. Glad I'm not their only fan :D

I've never had a Merlin pin badge break on me, but my only "non metal" one is the STRONG one.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I reckon they're secretly working on some when better scenery in theming envelope 1, so they're subverting everyone's attention. Dom you could be on to something.

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

The Dark Tower - 8/10 I'd honestly never seen any advertising about this film, but from the cinema trailer, it looked quite interesting. The plot can be a bit hard to file at times but it's a good little film. It's got a great cast with some people I'm told I'm meant to recognise, but i don't. If it...

Re: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi

Is there not already an aquarium in Abu Dhabi? The SeaWorld name will get them some visitors, but rides would get them even more. I thought they were good at this sort of thing! On another note, IKEA Sheffield is opening soon :D :D so IKEA Abu Dhabi is a bit off my radar!

Re: Warwick Castle Discussion

I remember they removed the seance a few years ago because it was getting unpopular. It was definitely not there last year anyway, and it was a bit naff when they did have it. Dolls House is interesting though, any descriptions?

Re: Best/Worst places to eat in Alton Towers?

I've always thought the best FB stands were in Mutiny Bay, and I've always enjoyed my food whenever I've got it in mutiny bay. My favourite overall restaurants are the Rollercoaster Restaurant, Emporer's Bar and Grill, and the Woodcutters. My worst are Fried Chicken Co, Burger Kitchen (CCL) and (Unp...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

The only rides I could think that would fit are already in cbeebies land. It's a good idea for the park but as Mandyland is home to the only Wallace and Gromit ride it is unlikely that the IP is up for sale at the moment. Also, the resort already has a children's land themed to an IP, so I'd rather ...

Re: Elo Coaster Ranking Project

Very interesting! As much as I wish I could add mine, it falls just one coaster behind the required limit, however, it is entirely possible for me to go to a new park before the end of the year, so I just have a few questions. 1. Do bobsleds count? (Avalanche @ BPB etc.) 2. Vekoma Junior Boomerang. ...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I'm doubting that they'll remind the house of monsters theming, as it seemed to be very popular and well built. August is the main time when families come to the resort so dismantling the play area at that time seems like a bad investment in my opinion. Also, wobble world always seemed to be unenjoy...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Towers have also been doing a lot of work with Nick, with Mutiny Bay, Many Scarefest Soundtracks and (I think) Christmas. All I know is, we'll be getting some great audio, from a great composer, be it IMAScore or Nick Hutson, to go along with a great ride experience, a great theme and some great mer...
