Re: Fireworks 2013

Well I'm having my say now. I recall some people a while ago saying that the magic has gone from the park. Merlin and Alton Towers did a brill job at this years fireworks. I stood in the middle of the lawns like most people and clapped and shouted like most people. This years display was 2nd to none...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I've heard the same rumours too (on the 'grape vine', if you like). In terms of 'the good old days' I think 2014 is anticipated to be on the level of the original Storybook Land, the way the Farmyard used to be and even the way Toyland Tours was once upon a time. Although saying that I would still ...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

Do you really know what I'd like to see. A whole new area that's all just a whole new area. Something the UK has never seen before something new and fresh  something that will bring the UK themeparks who don't invest down to their knees. Something the good old Alton way that will wipe the smile...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Yep has now been confirmed by the park due to backlashes from public. So yep 9pm now which is good. I just wish merlin or Alton who ever it is would set the times and go with it. Its daft to say try out the water then a few weeks later go back to 9pm etc. Dose not do the park any favors. they did th...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Hi folks 7pm is fully confirmed for the first week of scarefest - wish i knew what they was up to. As for opening later the park licence states 9pm latest they can open but there is no limit on how often they can open till this late. but they need to get permission to open later than 9pm like for al...

Re: NEW 2014

Just a thought here, Alton has today announced the Xmas line up and the farm which is normally on the line up is not - this year it's all CCL and MB - I also have to say but its not confirmed that there are on the grapevine a lot of people saying the farm is going this year for a new land in 2014.

Ive just seen this and think its brill news. I always forget to save up for my MAP and find that £120 is a lot to pay out in one go. As long as the perks are the same as the MAP like any attraction and stuff in more than happy and with my MAP running out next month i can upgrade or change to this on...

Re: New Park Entrance

Thats a good point tbh never thought of it like that. Move the car parks on to the over flow areas as they are massive also move the coach parks there too. Then if they wanted to make a new gate by duel or FV for guests - they could keep the Monorail if they wanted so people could use towers street ...

Re: New Park Entrance

Towers Street is a little dead most of the time, if you look at the flow of traffic, everyone goes through it in the morning, only stopping for Fast Tracks at the Box office or height bands/exit passes at Guest Services, then its the last call of the day to go to Towers Trading or Guest Services.
