They’d be better off putting an indoor dark ride next to / inside the Towers itself to replace Duel and complement Hex.

I don't get this? :-k

Re: Parking garages next to main entrance?

In a nutshell, this will never happen. For the amount of cars that the Resort gets on a peak day, a sizeable multi-storey would be required. Remember, the Resort can’t build anything that would be seen from outside the boundary of the park, and given the location you’ve mentioned is at the very edg...

Parking garages next to main entrance?

Over the last 10+ years the want for a second more established entrance to the park keeps getting tossed around. I’ve often thought as a way to keep park guests nearer to the front of the park and not having to que up to take the monorail, why not use the disabled guest parking just behind CBeebies ...

Re: SW9

A B&M Hyper won't ever happen due to the restrictions. Unless they fancy digging a 200ft+ trench...  Or if the locals decide not to restrict the UK's largest theme park from building roller coasters. It is so strange that a park with so many world's first coasters, including 3 iconic B&M co...

Re: The World of David Walliams - *Delayed until 2021*

If anything, this may help them out in the long run. If they could somehow get families in to test the ride out and give their opinions, then they could tweak things and really make it something that's pretty great :) That's why Disney soft opens a lot of their stuff before and then have a proper gr...

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

What would be great (but highly unlikely) is a completely new story for that area of the park that is still part of the David Walliams world but not solely based off different books he's written already. That way at least it's fresh, more original and may be a little more timeless/lasting.

It won't be Lego :P Wrong area, wrong park, wrong IP in my eyes.

I do have to agree. It's a bit too high end for the park.
Does anyone know if its really true that nothing can be built in the coaster corner area of the park???

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Personally, I would very much doubt the area would have a Lego theme. If they were to use another IP then it would need to be one that will stand the test of time. Are you nuts!?!? :p Lego has been going for about a hundered million billion years now! It wipes the floor with the likes of all the st...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

The Lego rumour has been knocking about for a few years now and I always thought it was a bit far-fetched, but with the recently announced waterpark over at Gardaland, it seems it could hold some weight. I dunno though, it just doesn't seem right for Alton Towers. Unfortunately we wouldn't see a fa...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

Yes, Yes, 1000 Times Yes! :) CBeebies Land has really surprised me with how well they've been able to pull it all off. But i'd much rather the park stay away from IP's The thing with an IP is it can lose popularity after a couple of years and so becomes a burden for the park to keep updating its rid...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Kind of upset it looks a bit happy lol! Was expecting it to be a bit more horror like, or a skull like design instead of it being an actual human feature head design. It’s defo a miniature version of the main themeing element I can tell the facial features are the same as the tarp covered version. ...

Re: Area Speculation and Discussion

This could turn out to be another Air... which I hope it's not. A ride with a totally different theme plonked in a pre-existing area that already has an established theme. It's great the designers get to create the theme's for each new SW project with story etc, but they need to think about the big...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I still think it would be great if Aardman and Merlin teamed up and created a whole new world of characters they could base rides and attractions off. Cloud Cuckoo land as it is started off pretty strong with Merlin's own take on original characters, that's what i like to see, some originality and n...

what's happening with Hex then?

is it closed due to staff shortage, or is it receiving some much needed TLC?

i honestly can't see wood coming for a long long time now because of the smiler incident. to me personally, i really hope it doesn't either. i really don't see what all the fuss is about with wooden rollercoasters.
