The Smiler - Other Discussion

Sat Dec 15, 2012 8:22 pm

Welcome to the SW7 Themed Rooms Discussion topic!

Here you can discuss anything to do with the brand new SW7 themed bedrooms coming to the resorts hotel's next year. You can discuss:
  • What style the bedroom will have?
  • Which hotel will these rooms be placed in?
  • How much will these rooms cost?
  • What are your opinions on them and would you stay in theme?
So basically all of the above and whatever you wan't to say about them. Here's the quote from the TowersStreet website sort of confirming these rooms:

Exclusive – SW7 themed rooms for 2013 (Published 11th December 2012) 

Alton Towers Resort have exclusively confirmed to TowersStreet that in addition to the 2013 new ride codenamed ‘SW7′ (Secret Weapon 7), the resort hotels will also be getting in on the action with two new themed rooms based around the new ride.

Oh right, cool. I think the Splash Landings Hotel needs it more due to it's lack of themed rooms as at the minute it only has two.

Why would Splash Landings have a SW7 themed room..
The hotel has a Caribbean theme.

Yes but it also has an Ice Age room which has nothing to do with the Caribbean...? Also the Alton Towers Hotel has an Arabian Nights themed room which also has nothing to do with the explorer theme of the Alton Towers Hotel. Also a while ago there was an Oblivion themed room which also had nothing to do with the explorer theme so...?

Don't feel bad, I kinda was acting like a bitch there saying all that but you know.

Anyway back to these new rooms, imagine what it would be like trying to get to sleep with that smile logo on the walls - creepy. Also I was thinking what if the beds were like hospital beds...?

Sorry to double post but it seems no one's posted in here for a while. Anyway I don't know if anyone's noticed this but for anyone who was having doubts on whether the SW7 Themed Rooms were official, well here's a quote from the official Alton Towers website:

Themed bedrooms

A short break at the Alton Towers Resort can be fun and adventurous - why not upgrade your package to one of our luxurious Themed Rooms! All of our Themed Rooms have lots of surprising features, some of which are hidden and will require a little bit of exploring! Our theme rooms include:

  • New for 2013 - SW7 Room
  • Ice Age Room
  • Sonic The Hedgehog Room
  • Pirate Room
  • Sleepover Room 
  • Benjamin Bunny Room 
  • Celebration Room 
  • The Chocolate Room 
  • The Arabian Nights Room
  • Big Pyjama Room
  • Splish Splash Room 
  • Tatty Teddy Room 


However it still doesn't mention which hotel they will be in. Any thoughts - I'm going with the Splash Landings Hotel as it doesn't have as many themed rooms but I could be wrong.

I was hoping the themed rooms to be more The Sanctuary theme than SW7. Or are they basically the same?

Well the whole Sanctuary theme fits in with SW7 so I'm sure there will be elements of the room that resemble SW7 more and some elements that will resemble The Sanctuary more if you get what I mean. If you think about it the beds have a good chance of been hospital beds which is more The Sanctuary and the T.V.'s in the room will be like those T.V.'s they had in the Sanctuary so I think there will be both SW7 and The Sanctuary theming in there.

There were two Oblivion themed rooms so I presume there will be two SW7.

When you guys say "two rooms" do you mean like two different styles of rooms themed around SW7 or an SW7 themed room in each of the hotels?

I hope the room doesn't rotate around you when you're in bed...

Ha, yeah. I'm sure it won't. When your watching T.V. in the room sometimes just randomly for a split second the T.V. should go black showing the SW7 Smiley logo zooming towards you but still rotating and quite slowly. Do you think these rooms are gonna cost more than say the Pirate and Ice Age themed rooms?

I doubt they'd cost any more, it depends on what extras are included I guess

True, to be honest if the rooms were scary they'd put people off - especially if there's families with young children. It will bring more teenagers who like horror and stuff in which is bad because we don't want a Thorpe Park environment with kids around.

It'd be good to have an intense and a mild room if there is to be two, so there's a choice for thrillseekers and families alike.
