Re: The Future of RITA..

I think that it's the queueline that needs updating - it's awful on the occasionally sunny day at AT.
I also think the tunnel idea is a good one...

Re: Cariba Creek Waterpark

It's amazing just how many diehard Alton fans have never set foot inside Cariba Creek. Unfortunately it's not at all unsurprising. Between opening times which collide with the park and easier and cheaper access to the nearby Water World is it really worth the visit? Yes! Yes it is <!-- s:D -->:D<!-...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Maybe The exit now for ToTT and Sanctuary exit made part of the Sanctuary and connects (somehow, like goes over the path to Oblivion) and is more connected to SW7. Just an Idea.  :D Also like how all the smoke from Zombies was in and around DF maybe pump that around the entrance to the park to ...

Rita-brakes

Are Rita's brakes, the ones that come up after a launch on the launch electro-magnets?
If so surely if there was a powercut and a rollback (possible but extremely unlikely) it would just plough through the staion and hit the train behind!
Maybe they have a backup, i dont know please help me. :?

Re: Alton Towers - without height restrictions

IMO Alton wouldn't have Oblivion and Rita would be a top hat accelerator like stealth and it would be just like any other theme park but it might be quite interesting to see what they would do! :D

Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion

I thought it was great!I thought the atmosphere was sooooooo cool! The Sanctuary is AWESOME. On TOTT our walk kind of got ruined as there was a 'technical difficulty' and we had to leave, but i did it again. The Zombie scare zone was good but it was a bit short. From my personal experience Carnival ...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Not really in a queue line but outside of the entrance some chavs pointed at the corkscrews and said:(roughly translated into normal english)
Chav 1: oh which ride is that?
Chav 2: i dunno but i like totally rode that yesterday
Chav 1: oh yeah me too

Me (thinking) :oh sure you did

Email to Alton Towers

Hello, Me and my dad went to Alton Towers about a month ago and purchased a ride photograph iPhone case. On the last day of our trip (the day we purchased the case), we arranged to have it sent to Towers trading but then had to leave early and didn't have time to collect it. We have e-mailed Alton T...

Re: Are the Alton Towers ADs too dark?

I do agree with you that Alton Towers is a little too dark now, i do think that they should spruce it up,  like you said, that would be EPIC.

Re: Oblivion (The Ride) - The Movie?

It could work it would be quite cool but they would definitely need the actor in the pre-ride movies, Renny Krupinski ? If they did a Nemesis movie the Phalanx would have to feature heavily, obviously! THe government should be like sending in extra detectives and scientists to find out what it is an...

Re: The Future of The Flume

Personally i think they should keep the flume as it is, because i haven't been on many flume rides like it, BUT they should give it a major revamp like a repaint and more theming.

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?
