They've gone back to basics. Hearing from guests directly what Alton Towers Resort means to them, how it makes them feel, the excitement, the fear, the uncertainty of first rides. Emotion is huge and if there was one way to sum up this year's Display I'd say that.

Watching on Youtube as i'm miles away, I would say it was more people sharing memories of what the rides and the park mean to them and I think it was more exciting to the geeks than to the GP as it has a proper retro vibe and the legend that is Mr John Wardley. It brought back personal feelings (Even just on youtube) towards rides and memories of first rides and first visits. I think you're over examining it and being extra critical over something that doesn't need this much criticism. Things exploded and made the night sky look pretty

I think it would've been better if they'd had one or two sections of people talking rather than throughout the whole show. Don't get be wrong, it was still a great show
