Re: Future of the Monorail

Something needs to be done with the monorail and im not talking about theming. The ride system seems to be in such a state that AT are incapable of running a reasonable amount of trains. It was a 50 (yes FIFTY) minute wait yesterday morning. Trains seemed to be about one every 8-10mins. I would have...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

AT could do with opening The Smiler right now to tackle some of those other queue times. I noticed that Sonic Spinball was 2hrs earlier on.  :shock:

Re: Quick Questions 2011

Does the AT waterpark still offer a entry discount to MAP holders? Also, do they still do a further discount after 4-ish pm (they used to knock quite a lot off the price). If so, how much do they charge for reqular and MAP guests? thanks, Paul Hi all, does anybody know the answer to this one? We're...

Does anybody else think this will take place in the old ice skating arena (where the 4d cinema was going to go)?

Re: Adventure Land future

Mind you, if they removed both rides from that area, that would be a fair chunk of land there to develop on. To help eliminate the morning rush to the new ride, one option would be to somehow block off Adventure Land from the main path to X-Sector - fenced off maybe? Instead, the entrance to the are...

Re: 2011: Discussion

Alton Towers Hi Reginald, there are no major new rides for 2011, however we will have some fantastic new additions to the Resort throughout the year- watch this space for more information!


Probably just the new Steakhouse restaurant in AT Hotel. :|

If you go down to the woods today...

When using the woodland walk early last year from the AT hotel through to Forbidden Valley, I noticed a mysterious set of wooden steps leading down from the main path deep into the wooded valley. Has anybody on here been curious and taken a look at what is down there? Are there any noteworthy landma...

Is anybody aware of any 50% off discount codes for stays at either of the AT hotels at the moment? Last March I managed to get 50% off a stay in Splash Landings through an offer printed in The Sun, but I haven't seen anything so far this year - although to be fair it's still pretty early and offers ...

Re: New flats for Dark Forest?

I'm going to be controversial here, and say that I'm not sure I want to see any new flats in the Dark Forest. :) The reason I say this is because I really don't think there are any flats out there at the moment that are original or innovative enough to make an impact to the area or for AT as a whole...
