Re: Forbidden Valley Future

So do people think this a positive move?

I for one am happy to see blade appears that it will be around for a few more years!

Could this be the rejuvenation of Forbidden Valley?

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

One concern I have with The Dungeons is general park goers may confuse it with Hex. I can just imagine a family walking past the Hex entrance and little Timmy wanting to go on it only for his parents to say “Oh Timmy, we can’t go on that, you have to pay for that ride”. And same goes for people who...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It won't be based purely on Alton Towers history. The scripts will tie in with the area, but only in the sense of the Plague Doctor mentioning the deceased in the local area etc, or the Highway Men looting a carriage along the tracks of Alton. Other than that, it will be your standard Dungeons expe...

Not during the fireworks. No one would see it, everyone’s facing the Towers and lake. A projection of the Wickerman or his face/s onto something is a possibility.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

It wouldn't be dark enough though. By the time we come to the end of Scarefest, 28th October onwards, the sun will be setting from 16:30 onwards so it will certainly be dark enough by then. And from the start of scarefest the sun tends to set from 18:45 so we’d only be looking at one hour of operat...

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

Looking forward to watching this develop, may not be exactly what I’d envision for the park however it will certainly open out to a wider audience to be able to stay at the resort and make the most of their visit. It also gives the geeks something to watch over closed season, these going in and bein...

The social in the courtyard will run until 9:30pm and then continue in MaGarrita’s Bar in Splash Landings Hotel. With a massive party conga line back to the hotels!  That'll be more like a "helping people who can't stand up back to the hotels" line, if previous socials are anything to go ...

Re: Fright Nights

Even with a new maze, the WD mazes really need attention because last October they simply weren’t up to standard. The scenery was fantastic and some of the best themed mazes in the UK, so visually stimulating but scare-wise very little and felt more like a WD experience or walk through than a scare ...
