Re: SP Southern Screamer 2019 - Reviews & Feedback

Brilliantly organised event, huge thank you to all who made it possible. Enjoyed seeing old faces & new as well as making new friends.  Bouncezilla, of which I now hold the lap record for at 44 seconds, is really enjoyable addition to Thorpe Park over the summer months (Although you wouldn’t bel...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hey everyone, I’ve never done a towers opening weekend before. What day would you recommend the Saturday or Sunday? I would say it depends what you’re looking to experience. The opening day has a certain buzz and magic feel to the park with the excitement and freshness, plenty of enthusiasts and ne...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I think it looks poor to be honest. What’s important to remember and as I’m sure is mentioned in the video, when the Meet the Maker event took place, changes, additions and the site was still being added too. I think, like I’ve said before, it’s easy to judge something before you’ve seen it properl...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

Can anyone explain to me why Katanga Canyon has a Greek themed restaurant and X-Sector has a 50’s themed restaurant it’s looks really out of place. I get they wanted to rebrand and all that but why did they change the themes of the restaurants? Don’t they own these brands anyway? Oblivion always ha...

The Stoke Sentinel have done a piece on the Dungeons, which confirms a few facts we have been speculating on.  ⋅ The Dungeons will be a 45-minute experience. ⋅ Features The Bishop of Stafford who will sentence the accused, surviving the plague and a trip to the Witch of Burslem’s...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I believe the boat section will be first, if I'm right it's the first aspect of each of the videos that comes first. It makes sense as well to begin on the boat and journey back in time. I've only done 2 Dungeon attractions so far so this will be my 3rd. If the acting team do a great job of capturi...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I would say that the majority of more reasonable-minded people understand the need/reasoning for The Dungeon to be upcharge. However, I think there are frustrations with the fact that this isn’t the sort of attraction the theme park is most in need of at this time, following the removal of several ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I only have one thing to say on this whole pay attraction none sense, mazes people pay to do and are very happy to do so, this is a ride and walk through attraction, for a bargain price. The HB lesuire games are extra and I say plenty of people paying to do them in excess of £5 so again a bargain at...

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...
