Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Also, Nick Thompson said at the press event today that the park will be adding "about" 3 significant new rides in the next 7 years. I'm sure it was mentioned somewhere that the plan was for Mack to deliver at least 2 more rides for Pleasure Beach (so 3 rides in total including ICON). I gu...

The Next Themed Area/Area Refurb

Just came to my attention, what does everyone think will be the next refurb of a current area or even a new area altogether?

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

I might be alone on this but I think Alton Towers has a large collection of recognisable characters to use. There’s the ministry of joy and all it’s ‘colourful’ characters, the phalanx and the nemesis creature, galactica and the astronauts, Thirteen and it’s wraiths, wicker man and the beoren and t...

Re: SW9

I wanna see Rita go but I do have an idea. Do you guys remember an old animation for SW7 for what the world's first element was, when the track was attached to like a rotating tunnel. Well, that could work with that Dark Forest vibe and theming. Especially if its a launch coaster cause Intamin and M...

Re: The Future of the Monorail

I would like to see newer style Monorail trains with see through clear windows but change the theming of the trains to the main coasters at the park.

Re: SW9

I am predicting a galaxy themed indoor water coaster (Galactic themed Valhalla) but including a worlds first or a world record element. Like Worlds Tallest Water Coaster or the only inversion on a water coaster. Maybe called Galaxi or Cosmos (sci fi themed)

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

They could bring back 3 classic rides for 2020; Ripsaw, Dynamo and Submission. Ripsaw in its old location, Submission in its old location and Dynamo (as part of phase 1 in a 2 phase Forbidden Valley expansion in the old car park behind Galactica) and then phase 2 in 2021 or 2022, SW9 in that area.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I'm a little curious about it but at the same time, I do wish it could've been in the Towers or a new building in Coaster Corner built from scratch. But I see it, in a way that the CCL Entrance will probs be moved closer to Toadstool and that allows an entrance near the skyride station and then repa...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I agree. I think during Scarefest they'll start marketing the ride or area or whatever it is. If it was an IP I'd want the new Shaun the Sheep Dark Ride concept from Sally Corporation and then CCL could become Aardman Animation Courtyard cause that IP works. If original, I agree with a Diagon Alley ...

Do you have a sauce on that? Can't see anything on towers Instagram or Twitter.


Coastergram told me on Instagram on one of his posts that Alton Towers are announcing today.

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Oh god. I hope not. One VR Coaster is bad enough. Keep the Galactica theme but just get rid of the VR and make a dark ride or an experience where VR actually makes it good!

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

We can always hope. I mean the rumours of Sealife expanding, Charlie rethemed and the confirmed Enchanted Village Expansion means it is more of a family year next year which is understandable but maybe 1 flat ride in 2019 would be good. I would bring Boneshaker back but I'd wait until the 2020 seaso...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Yh I agree. Not too high cause of tree height rules with new rides but that same type of ride. Also SW9 probably in 2021

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I think a perfect 2019 is... I definitely want to see the Charlie retheme. Maybe an original theme. Unrealistically, I wanna see a brand new version of Toyland Tours with the new elevator system at the end. I also believe that a Sharkbait Reef expansion with a Artic Avenue type area for the cold ani...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Ah brilliant. I've been waiting for Toadstool. I didn't know if it was being stored until Spinball leaves and then expand CBeebies with a rethemed Toadstool and a dark ride but thank god. But what happens to Coaster Corner, the SBNO Ice Age 4D and the Nickelodeon Outta Control site because that's 3 ...
