With Wicker Man now open, what do you think we could see in 2019? (Sorry if this topic isn’t needed)

I'm thinking they'll focus on CCL, and give it a new theme hopefully (but not a dark theme, we've got enough of those). A steampunk theme could work well, and I've also heard people discuss maybe a Dreamworks theme, which I also think could work pretty well for the area if they wanted to go down the IP route. :)

Whatever happens, we need FLATS. And we need them FAST. The lack of filler-rides really shows nowadays, and makes the day a bit boring. Hopefully the resort will install some thrilling, high capacity ones next year.

If AT only read one topic on this forum I hope it’s this one.

FLATS, FLATS, FLATS

I’ve been saying it for years, AT needs a new flat ride in ever location of the park. This will push AT to be a 2 Day excursion park rather than the 1 day it currently is.

I’m not sure the average cost of flat rides but if AT were to invest £2/3M across the park they would see a huge return on investment.

Although the GP isn’t as interested from a marketing point of view this can be easily overcome with a “3/4 new rides opening 2019 tagline” and a small promotional teaser of each.

It’s just a shame that we all know that this isn’t how they have operated for the last 5 years

That would be great. I personally don’t enjoy flats but I know many others do, so it’s fine with me if they install some! If they did 3-4, they definitely would have an easier job marketing the additions, as with 1 it would be very hard to market.

I'm hoping that Cloud Cuckoo Land will receive some work. If it takes on a DreamWorks or CBBC theme then would be good. Personally, I hope it is an IP or MMM concept which will appeal to all. That way both families and adults can enjoy the attractions it has to offer.

A few flats are exactly what towers need at the moment - supporting rides that'll give people something today while all the coasters have massive queues, though i doubt they'd want to put them in because of marketing (i mean surely its pretty easy to promote a flat ride or two, but we all know merlin)

I think they could rebrand the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride. I know this sounds silly but they could get a license with Cadbury’s?

I mean, flat rides were particularly popular today, with all of the downtime affecting basically all of the major coasters, with closures all day long... 

As stupid as Merlin appear to be, I do have some hope that we will see some new flat rides in the near future, possibly as part of a re themed Cloud Cuckoo Land, or possibly in other areas of the park that have sat vacant since the previous ride was removed and not replaced.
