Re: Towers Loving Care

The whole TLC thing, whilst good, doesn't sit well with me. It shouldn't take an incident like what happened on The Smiler to give them the kick to do this. This is just basic maintenance that should be done consistently and constantly. But can we really say this is the case, we'll never know truly...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

Has it even been confirmed yet that they are closing 6 rides next year? Also, it's too early for them to announce new attractions, so if they are closing 6 rides next year, they could be being replaced by 8 new attractions, which would make the situation much better. I totally agree with you that i...

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

What I dont get is... You've got to remember that your interests do not match up with the interests of the park, or bosses at Merlin/Alton Towers. They aren't just closing rides, or changing things, because they find it funny; they are doing it for a legitimate reason. It seems like the people on t...

I have spoken to Merlin and mailed them with my disgust at the increase. I cant comment on other peoples situation but I will say I spoke to one of the managers there who was very helpfull and listened to what I had to say. They are fully aware of how badly this is going down and I would suggest tha...
