Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I would of hoped for a more children-friendly retheme to match with Cloud Cuckoo Land. Since they'll probably use existing infrastructure from Charlie it would be a kick in the nuts if they charged for it, but I doubt this will be a long term attraction as Merlin and high staffed attractions never l...

Re: Inside Alton Towers - General Discussion

The stock 'people screaming on a ride' sounds they used in the programme made me cringe but the concept arts of Wicker Man were cool.

It didn't require extra staff, but I agree that staff weren't in a position to enforce it.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The way I see it it's okay if a group of people join the line together because there's no guarantee they'll get on together, plus they would fill empty seats.

Has single rider queues been removed for all rides or only a select few?

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Pre-show is absolutely pheononinal, on par with Hex. Theming is perfect. The videos don't justify how intense the ride is.

Re: Two Smiler trains collide -- BREAKING

Stupid mistake of the ride operator, sending a passenger train right after a test train without even checking if it safely made the circuit. Thoughts out to those on the ride.

Alton Towers: Merlin's 'flagship' park?

Does anyone else agree with me? I mean Merlin does have other fantastic parks like Gardaland and Heide Park but I get the impression that Merlin spends most funds on Alton Towers since we've been getting big updates to the park annually.

Scorpion Express

As you know Chessy are investing 5 million in refurbishing parts of the park including Dragon Falls and RT. The whole RT area has been stripped and has left the track and queue path. I tried to take some pics of the site, but theres a solid wooden fence instead of the typical construction fence that...
