Re: Disneyland and California Adventure TR

No, they don't have the ride anymore (not sure where it was, so don't know what its been replaced with) I thought it was a good park overall. I know whats been altered and added over the last couple of years, so I can imagine that before it wasn't good at all. Theres still a few rides that don't ma...

Re: What would you want at towers ??

A well themed dark ride is a must. I fully appreciate the budget constraints, but as a nation we do tend to spend big on coasters but under invest on people eating indoor ones. Having ridden Spiderman / Forbidden Journey etc. the bar is exceptionally high and potentially unacheivable at Towers. If t...

The trouble with that kind of advert is the budget. To do it well you're talking a couple of million. Do it cheap and it'll look rank.

There is a ride just like that in a town near Tokyo. It is so scary, it took me a while to recover.

I'm just SO SO pleased that they are finally sorting that whole area out. If it takes a few years - so be it. It could have such a positive impact on the park as a whole and mark a new period for AT. Whoop!

Merrie England is awful. It would be a blessing for it to go - I just don't think it's retrievable. Start from scratch and make it something that people don't just rush through...

The thought of Dodgems at Alton Towers really bothers me. I don't think it would be helpful to the park.

I went to a conference at the Towers once for work and we were given £15 worth of Magic Money as part of the package. I have some knocking around somewhere. I'll get it scanned.
