Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I went last Thursday and waited 90 minutes to ride with VR. On every train only five people were allowed on it, I assume it was because of limited headsets. I only queued because the entrance said half an hour. It wasted my day and the ride isn’t even as sought after because of the arrival of Smiler...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I think it should probably be along the lines of a shorter flume with animatronics relative to the theming.

Re: SW9

It is always quite difficult to find space for a new ride without demolishing a pre-existing one. The park has to to be wary of the local residents and protected grounds. I think we will have to just accept that in the future some rides will just have to go to make way for new ones. Even if they are...

Re: Potential Galactica backstory?

I absolutely agree! Galactica definitely sticks out. However, I think that the ride should be taken over by the monster that escaped in Sub-Terra. It could have the same colour scheme as Nemesis.

Re: Will AT become obsolete with the new Paramount park?

I agree. The paramount park will probably never get built anyway?

Will AT become obsolete with the new Paramount park?

Alton Towers is lacking in a lot of areas but it is overall a fun day out. However, with the new park in Kent it may have a competition on its hands.

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I think the ride has had a good run. I have been on it multiple times and it was enjoyable. The idea was simple but executed well. The Sonic theming was great and I enjoyed the concept. However, AT is lacking in family rollercoasters and I think they should have a new rollercoaster for families ther...

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

I think that Gloomy Wood should have a horror water ride. The horror element could make it really scary. It will bring some thrill seekers missing Nemesis Sub-Terra which at the rate it is going will probably never reopen. It could be indoor or outdoor.

Haven’t been on Galactica yet, I have been on Air though? Is it worth it?

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

It’s quite difficult to say because I don’t think they need a new branded area as they already have CBeebies Land. I think they just need a few new rides, maybe a rollercoaster like the Octonauts one. They could just do a rebrand. Personally I think they should get rid of the 4D cinema. I understand...

X-Sector refurbishment?

I just think it could do with a bit of an update.

Re: SW9

I think there should be a new inventive water ride. Now The Flume has gone I feel that AT is lacking in this area. It could be like StormForce 10 in size, I don’t know where it could be placed though?

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I would say that Duel needs a retheme. The props have had some Towers Loving Care but the idea is outdated and I think there should be a more family centered approach. I understand it is a shooting zombies theme but I don’t think many kids go on it due to the scary exterior. I for one believe they c...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

I think that they need an updated backstory for the Dark Forest. Maybe some changes to how far it has grown and maybe give it a scarier theme. Thirteen could have some more overgrown themes and this could attract some more rides to the area (if there’s any space).

Re: The Future of Oblivion (20th and Beyond)

I think that they should give it a cool new paint job for the Halloween season maybe a purple and green and some neon lights in the ‘abyss’!! It may drag some more people on as there are practically no queues at the moment.

Re: Alton Towers 2019 Addition

I think they could rebrand the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride. I know this sounds silly but they could get a license with Cadbury’s?
