The shot of Slammer is likely because this is where the entrance to Black Mirror Labyrinth will be :) I don't think that clip of Slammer at the end of the video will have any relevance to the 2020 season. Slammer is dead and Black Mirror ...

It would be great to hear what everyone thought. https://www.altontowers.com/about-alton-towers/blog/preparing-to-reopen-...
