Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Does anyone have a rough idea about the amount of tracks that will be on the IMAscore CD? Will it be similar to Thorpe Parks or smaller/larger? I heard there will be two disks but I'm not sure how many actual tracks will be on these. Based on an image IMAscore posted today , it looks like there wil...

Re: Black Mirror Labyrinth

Interesting (and not exactly reassuring) revelation from Charlie Brooker in an interview , that he’s not really had any involvement in this attraction: Something that is very Black Mirror is the Black Mirror Labyrinth experience that was due to open at Thorpe Park in March – because the country went...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Anyone know why the app is showing queue times and saying the parks open? I'm really confused and I cannot find anything online about this. Also, the world of David walliams is still not on the app. There have been private events for members of the emergency services and their friends and family th...

Hey, does anyone know how long the hotel porters can keep hold of luggage after check out? I'm staying on site soon and would quite like to have a day on park without lugging everything around with me.

I've previously left luggage with them for the day, and then collected early evening.

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

A first look at Gangsta Granny: The Ride has been shared on ITV Central.

The video shows the ride system in action, including some of the scenes of the ride, and a brief look at the area itself (which still seems be very much a work in progress).

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Looks like there was an ITV report on The London Resort a couple of days ago. Nothing of note of which we weren't already aware, as it really just highlights the lack of any meaningful progress up to this point.

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...
