Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

Certainly had its day now. This whole area needs re-working with the introduction of new family flats / a new indoor water ride, shops, restaurants and re-theme. Perhaps time of a new area of the park to be created.

Monorail - time for an upgrade

Think it’s about time to upgrade the parks monorail/ transportation system. The current trains and stations are tired an dated and are the first thing people see when you arrive in the car parks. Would be good for Merlin to pump money in good transportation systems now they are building more and mor...

Cloud Cukoo Land

Having been to the park over the weekend , I thought it would be time to flatten this area completely from Burger Kitchen all the way around to the old Nickelodeon buildings. It’s so run down now and this area needs some serious flat rides and a complete rebuild.

What Does everyone else think?

LAST EVER ICE SHOW!

Hi guys, you should all come and see the last ice show this Saturday, it IS VERY doubtful that there will be no more after this! I urge you to support this last show and give it your full support! You may never see another ice show in the Big Top again! Let's make this last show, one to remember!

Alton towers do not own the tweenies and anyway, the show won't be at Alton this year, I do however believe that as we are talking about what won't be at the park within five years, I think the BIG TOP (ice shows), 3D CINEMA, RIPSAW, BLADE and ENTERPRISE will all be removed from the park.

The Entertainment at Alton Towers is of a high quality, fair enough not to Las vegas style/disney, however the same blood, sweat and tears is put into everything that Alton Towers produce! As for the managment team, yes there are a few changes needed, but i'm sure Alton Towers and the Tussauds Group...

Because "project destination" was the code name for splash landings &cariba creek. The "Quantum leap" must be something that no other theme park has, this has to be a new hotel with casino and entertainment complex, therefore turning the park into a short break destination resort. Sorry guys, th...

I doubt Alton will be putting any coasters in untill after 2007. I do however believe that "Project Dolphin" IS the 3rd and long awaited hotel/casino/entertainment complex which will bring Alton Towers into the holiday resort business. This 3rd hotel, if i'm correct will raise the parks profile even...

Air was supposed to have the ents technicians demo some of their six way bars (110v par 64's) from the big top and a Zr33 (Jem) smoke machine in the tunnel this year but they have put it on hold at the moment. They have a bloke working on lighting ideas for air at the moment. The dark rides may be h...

Reason why all the dark rides look badly lit is towers cut staff from the ents technical team and so they could no longer do the maintenance for all the dark rides lighting, It takes a good team of four people with two sets of ladders , 8 pairs of waders and about 300 50w birdie lamps to cover even ...

Reason why rides Toyland and Blackhole are lacking adequate lighting or have been poorly mintained is because the entertainments technicians no longer maintain any of the effects, it is sue to them having no time or staff available and they have to concentrate their work on the shows , if they had m...
