What are people's opinions on a retheme now? I think a retheme to Alton village/harbour would be cool. I don't think it will be too hard to retheme. Although, as said if it's not rethemed it's better than having a log flume themes to Imperial leather bath tubs!!!

I have a strong feeling Mutiny Bay is going to be rethemed to Alton Village.

Well I mean if you think Merlin will fork out for an extensive retheme of Battle Galleons and the whole area sure! I personally doubt it completely.

I must agree with that, Capt. Barnacles. Mutiny Bay has too many attractions which just wouldn't work as part of an Alton Village theme. Take Sharkbait Reef as an example. That wouldn't fit in well, and there is also all the pirate theming which would be costly to remove as Capt. B said. That said, I guess at this point, no one knows what will actually happen with this Alton Village retheme rumour.  :)

The area could be easily renamed something like Alton Harbour and still harbour (see what I did there :D) a pirate theme alongside SW8. It could be themed as a sort of port area with SW8 being ‘The Village’ further inland.

Yes, I agree that would be a way they can do a retheme, and to be honest, the more pirate theming the better, in my opinion.

Possibly another way they could do a retheme of the pirate stuff is just to make some minor alterations so that it looks more tribal. The Alton Village could be hosting a fair or something in honour of the Halloween celebrations that the residents of the village are taking part in? 

Also, I think a while back someone suggested that Mutiny Bay could be split into two areas, one being the courtyard the other the remaining area of the land, which I think is quite a possible way to do a retheme and would also work with what you said, Tom.

Just to be awkward, but I see people keep saying the Mutiny Bay has too many attractions, what are they? To me there just is Battle Galleons, Sharkbait Reef and the old teacups.

You’re forgetting the fantastical mega-thrill ride that is Heave Ho.

My bad. Haha. In all seriousness though, a retheme wouldn't be that much, would it concerning the total SW8 cost - who know's, the price may already be in with the budget.

I guess the cost would just depend on what extent they wanted to change things.
