Would we be able to have the music played in the different parks played on the forums dedicated to that park, or is it too much work/illegal?

We've always found background audio on webpages to be annoying to the majority of web users, plus there is no real elegant way of doing it on a forum. Sorry, it's unlikely to be something we would ever consider adding.

There's been plenty of work going on behind the scenes on the new V3 ride pages and there's still a bit more to be done before we can add the updated pages to the site, but to give an idea as to what to expect here's the Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure page!

The hotel and adjoining pages are the latest site content to be V3ed, as it were. They offer a comprehensive guide to the resort's hotels, including information on all of the rooms available, as well as their food, drink and other facilities, not to mention links to pages which are relevant to the hotels' histories.

You'll find the Alton Towers Hotel page here and the Splash Landings Hotel page here.

Loving those new pages, very convenient, will there eventually be a new page with information about the Enchanted Village? V3's looking better all the time, great job guys!

We do currently have several pages with information on the Enchanted Village, which will be reformatted to match the hotel pages during closed season :)

Given that it's been over a year since the last post here I may not be able to successfully recall all the pages that have since been updated. However, the most notable pages have been those for the resort's 'Other Attractions', a Future Developments section and most recently a large amount of work has gone into some of the History sections including the Construction Archive, The Drawing Board and Events Archive. We've also updated all the area pages and have begun integrating the new ride pages into the site as they have been completed.

If you notice any issues with the above pages/sections do let us know and we can hopefully amend them accordingly.

Although we have made significant progress, there is probably still 100+ pages left to go with the majority of those made up by our archived Past Rides & Attractions content.

After several months work, all our Past Rides & Attractions pages have been transferred over to the 'new' website. That's over 100 pages of nostalgic Towers goodness for your viewing pleasure!

Hopefully you'll find the format we've indexed them in to be user-friendly, with them sorted into attractions, entertainment and areas, and the ability to search and reorder the lists to find a particular page - they're in order of 'closing year' by default.

Yes, I've been waiting for this! Great work.

With us very nearly at the halfway point of closed season, work continues on the TowersTimes website to ensure it is providing the most up to date information and content.

The first notable recent addition is that of the 2017 Event Archive - I'd highly recommend checking out the respective Scarefest, Fireworks and Christmas pages if you want to relive those events by means of some truly excellent (and, in some cases, exclusive) photos from hursty. A new section has also been added to the History area of the site in the form of the Restoration Archive, which documents some of the Resort's recent restoration projects with photography from Tom and hursty. Also, if you missed it being posted on social media last year, our feature on the History of the Secret Weapons, as written by Ladyofthelake, is well worth a read! We've also been keeping our SW8 minisite up to date with construction photos, runes and more...

If, when you're browsing any of the pages linked above (or any of the 500+ pages of the website), you notice any issues, do let us know and we'll look to correct them accordingly.

As far as we're aware, we're now pleased to say that we've reached a point where the old site is no longer being linked to - i.e. V3 in terms of the website structure is effectively complete! Our focus is now on adding our usual high-quality photographs to the pages which still await them, and then producing new content as required (as well as some boring behind-the-scenes bits).
