Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

When rumours first emerged back in 2018 of a Gangsta Granny attraction, alongside the possibility of other attractions themed around David Walliams’ books, I was quite optimistic for the area, as I did think and do still think it is an IP well-suited to the Alton Towers brand. However, I can’t reall...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Does anyone know what the best time to experience The Attic is? Such as if there is a difference between day or night? As it’s completely enclosed inside the Towers, the time of day doesn’t make any difference to the maze experience itself. When you’re queuing outside it may be slightly spookier to...

Someone that reported this on FB, brought up an interesting theory. What if they are relocating Detonator? New investment for Thorpe Park and Chessington World Of Adventures?

It doesn’t appear to be a relocated Detonator as the plans indicate a capacity of 16 riders, compared to Detonator’s 12.

Re: Forbidden Kingdom Drop Tower - New for 2021

All in all, fantastic news from the park. Really hoping these plans get approved, and if so, I might have to return next season. Upon closer inspection of the planning documents, it appears this would open in 2021, with Rameses removed and Flying Jumbos relocated this closed season, and then constr...

It’s going along the path connecting MINILAND and Duplo Valley. I don’t believe there are any existing attractions in the location.
