Re: Things that you have Won at Alton Towers!

Never won anything at any of the parks, let alone Towers. Any ideas what the best ones to win a prize on are? Ben Yeah there's this amazing arcade machine where you insert 70p to play, and you press these buttons and win a Kitkat or a Yorkie bar or something, I'm well good at it! Won every time! ;)...

Re: 2009 Park Map

I liked the 2008 map but it was OTT and a bit exagerated; Air & Oblivion looked hugeee.. And it had no ride logos or anything :| Specs i'd like; - colourful (not over the top) - simple but effective - ride and area logo's - shows a good representation of the park - other pages have to be good as...

Re: If you could move a ride to another area

Create an 'Oasis' around air and have its own area.

I've also go the feeling that somethings missin in MB... it needs summit else.

Re: More Rides for Storybook Land and Gloomy wood ??

Well.. Look at cedar point lol. Omg why did they get rita? Seriously. It ruined probz the most atmospheric area of the park. I wouldve liked to seen that launched broomstick coaster in gw and I wouldve thought enterprise would be alright there if themed right. For sbl I agree with astrodans opinionw

Re: The '1.8' Family Ticket

I don't see how it could be abused? The ticket is designed for families with one parent and two kids, or two parents and one kid. So that's who'll be buying it? It's not like three adults can get one? Yep i agree... the only way you can abuse it is the two 'partners' and the other kids going in sep...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

Still I think everyone has been quick to bash the ride on what is essentially a line drawing. I can think of countless rides were people have underestimated them based on 'simple' plans. What would these be? Tbh.. when i looked at the 'layout' i was a bit unimpressed and disapointed.. but o think w...

Re: Towers Biggest Mistake?

None really.. its just a mixture of small things that hasn't harmed AT's wallets (gate figures etc) but hasn't convinced enthusiasts and some of the general public respectively. Things like; - Air (theming & some say position in FV) - Rita (theming & position in UL) Well.. really just Rita ...

Re: Ride Themes - YOUR CHOICE

I love all the ride themes but for a bit of creative fun how would you re-theme these four rides? Air Nemesis RITA - Queen of Speed Oblivion I would re-theme air as a giant birds nest and theme the ride cars as birds and have the floor themed like a nest with huge eggs and a huge pieces of twigs? i...

Re: If Corkscrews's replacement wasn't SW6?

[b]Yeah.. I think it'l be a good idea to have flats in both areas. One in with rita- racing themed. And a couple with SW6.

Shame Universal licensed them roboarms :( Does anyone know when they are licensed till?? They could install a few of them in Dark Forest on a later date if possible... [/b

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

The relief road sounds a good idea tbh..

When will the construction and announcements begin? :? Then we can get a real idea.

Shoudn't be too far into next season..
