When you enter the cave you can see two caverns splitting off, never been down them as they are pitch black!!!

They might of been ice caves for Altons past days to store ice in

Has anyone discovered any secret/forgotten parts of the gardens or towers? If so how did you find them?

Also has anyone found any unused areas in the park not open to the public?

It was a climbing wall situated at the top end of FV, where N:ST now stands. (it can still be seen on google street view)

It had been at the park for a while, seeing various different names and locations in it's time there, including a long stint in Ug Land, outside the Corkscrew entrance (ish).

Inevitably, it had to be removed for the construction of the new ride. Not much of a loss, to be honest...

Yes I know I'm replying to a 3 year old comment, but it was originally used to bring coal and supplies into the Towers through the 'service entrance' so the guests visiting the Towers wouldn't have to see it.
