I hope they start tweeting updates, it would be great if they started teasing a return of Nemesis Sub Terra if it is gonna come back next season.

I would love for Sub-Terra to re-open. It would be a welcomed return, adding to Nemesis and the overall experience, along with the atmosphere of Forbidden Valley.

As said, it would also ease the crowd away from SW8

Most definitely. Hopefully, the likes of Twirling Toadstool will return as well, directing some guests in the other direction.

It would be great if as rumours suggest The Welcoming is open for a few weeks at the start of the season, there could be 3 levels of "scare" attractions for people to go on.
1. Hex- low intensity but a great experience for families
2. Nemesis Sub Terra- much higher intensity but for teens and older 
3. The Welcoming- high intensity for mostly adults and older teens

I definitely wouldn't class Hex as a scare attraction... It's a multi-experience experience, but I get your point  :)

Yeah it's more of a family experience but it's fun and still my favourite dark ride at the park. My point was mostly about having experience attractions for all demographics

I thought that was a bit odd, so I hope it was a bit of a reference. I never experienced NST (in fact I never went to FV whilst it was working) so would love it to reopen. :)

To be honest, I'm pretty sure this is Merlin trying too make current holders of the Alton Towers Annual Pass upgrade to a Merlin Annual Pass which would give them a better profit margin. It's irritating but they are, in the end, a business and they want to make as much money as they can with the smallest expenses. This said, I may be purchasing one of these as I believe it offers rather good value for money.

Actually, the Standard Merlin pass has the same exclusion dates in August.
