Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

It's like one of those ideas where I'm like, "It's such a great fit, why has no one else thought about this yet?"

Re: If you owned ATR, what would you do with it?

I'm by no means saying Nemesis needs a pre-show I currently think it's a masterpiece and is looking better than ever this season but I agree with the pre-shows for The Smiler and the other SW's. Other than actual pre- shows even just adding little bits of extra themeing to the rides and the areas th...

Re: If you owned ATR, what would you do with it?

I think one of the problems this could have is that some of the rides like Nemesis would be tough to add a pre-show to unless they spent lot of money extending the Nemesis monster or making Nemesis Sub-Terra lead directly into Nemesis which would be great but very expensive. The other rides would be...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

That is actually such a good idea guys, it would really fit into the story of the AT hotel but also in my opinion a lot of the marketing over the last 10 years (excluding new rides) have been quite steampunk-lite. 

A whimsical steampunk land would actually be amazing.

Re: If you owned ATR, what would you do with it?

Unfortunately,  it all comes down to money at the end of the day!   That's why this topic exists – so we can dream up load of amazing ideas without any financial constraints!  I think now that Wicker Man has opened, which continues to receive high praise from many guests as a high quality themed at...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

Also it's still really smooth and unless you get stapled, is one of the smoothest and enjoyable rides in the park.

I too have heard a lot about this but have never experienced it or know much about it, I think there was a hooded section but I don't know.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

One of the rows on the solo train wasn't being used on easter monday but that was probably because of weather.

It was row 6 or 7 I think.

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

I don't know if it is true or not but I've heard it is actually the tallest point in the park, obviously it's not the biggest drop but its all above ground which makes it so tall.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

It's good to see some new entertainment added to Forbidden Valley, hopefully this is the beginning of some investment in that area. *cough Nemesis:ST reopening cough*

I don't mind them running it on one train because it really looks like they're putting a lot of work into the ride.

Re: SW9

There are obviously quite a few things stopping this but I would love to see the Katanga Kanyon B&M revisited. The previous plans were for a standup but I think they would probably go for a sit down as stand ups aren't very popular now.  I would love to see a high thrill Kumba style ride with lo...
