It would be a massive shame for so many attractions to be down for a whole season and would rather dampen my enthusiasm to go to Alton any other time than Scarefest. Hex and Ripsaw are my favourite non coaster rides in the park, Sub Terra is a good laugh and I haven't even been on the Flume yet.
But like I said, official announcement before I start worrying at all.
This comment on Facebook amused me about the situation. But being true, Alton Towers, this is not on.I won't be renewing my pass if u remove them rides and don't replace them...

This never happened under Tussauds ownership Tussauds never pressured guests into buying unlike the Merlin group whose only motivation is greed. Even the limited and not very well marked out smoking areas the park also needs to invest in more toilet facilities having one in each area.
Things need to change and Merlin need to take a leaf out of the Tussauds book, otherwise the park is likely to go the same way as Camelot and the American Adventure.
Meanwhile I doubt I will return if I head for a theme park the 2 most likely will be Gullivers or, Alton Towers main rival, Drayton Manor, where its free to park and where Alton Towers' future guests will head for.
