Re: Around the world in 80 days full POV

It is a shame and that footage shows only one side, it was so well themed I think they wanted their version of 'It's A Small world.' But is great footage, the best so far.

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

We stayed at splash landings on the 30th and in the morning, right outside the front door, everyone was smoking. Staff were coming in to work (7am ish, no one said anything). We are smokers and to be honest we don't go on rides, we go just for the park and gardens and just wander around. I say no to...

Re: Goodbye Old McDonald's Farmyard

If they do re vamp the farm they will totally spoil it like all the other re vamped areas . That farm has been there since 1989 and it was made to last. All the new areas apart from Mutany bay look awful. They don't take care of anything they just re do they leave them no maintenance or anything. Th...

Re: I've killed the magic...

Not all but some posts on here seem to think all you want is roller coasters to make magic. But that's not a resort its just a ride park. Magic is made by ambiance while queuing for rides you used to have Street Theatre Costumed Characters making you laugh while you waited. Live Music playing around...

Re: I've killed the magic...

I really don't see what dark days mean. From 1989 to 1996 Alton Towers was advertised as the United Kingdoms answer to Disney even had it on Matchbox Bus models sold on park. They could not say that now. No decent entertainment no live music on park unless you take a little side show live entertainm...

Re: I've killed the magic...

I would of thought making magic is all about creating a magical day from when you enter in a morning with street theatre characters a band puts you in the mood for the day ahead. Not just going to queue for rides.It creates a good atmosphere but you have nothing. A day at Alton Towers is all about f...

Re: TowerTimes - (Old) Staff Magazine

They started in 1995 and were A3 size to begin with then went down to A4. There was 3 a year. And even the Towers only have black and white copy's of the first 2 as they let me copy them way back in 1998.
