Re: Old maps, posters, guides, collectables etc for sale?

On eBay it was £15 but I'd expect people to pay more Wow! Just looking around and some of the AT stuff seems to go for amazing/ridiculous prices.  I've got a reasonable collection of maps etc, from the 80s but although there's a part of me that would sell them, I know I'd probably immediately ...

Re: Future of the Dark Forest

The main reason I dislike Rita is because it is obviously just plonked ontop of the area with no attempt to even blend it in, therefore I have come up with some small additions to themeing to help tie it in with dark forest. Starting with a paint job and removal of any race car theming. The track w...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

The website says Carnival of Screams and Zombie Scarezone are free, but the app says it's the Zombie Scarezone and Terror of the Towers that's free. Which is telling the truth? :)

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

Could the tractor ride become bob the builder, or brum?? Big cook, little cook cafe? 64 zoo lane animals? Could bish bash become tweenies or teletubbies? Would have preferred CBBC but getting excited to see what we get ;)

Re: 2014 Family Developments: General Discussion

In the interests of the staff members, we have to remove posts. Speculation is fine, but you could endanger a job by saying "so and so on this ride" or even specifying the job they're doing could do that. Equally anything that states something as fact will be removed at team discretion, a...

Any more posts that contains details of staff members that you may have spoken to will be deleted. This is a speculation topic so we should be allowed to speculate about what staff say. A member of staff's speculation is just as valid as the speculation that members write on this page. Just my opin...

Re: New aquarium-themed ride?

I went to an Aquarium in Cheshire Oaks not long ago- the huge window into the tank (which was used as a theatre showing divers and sharks etc...) was made of plastic! I can't see thick plastic breaking from vibrations? Surely the fish can survive vibrations? I mean, there are earthquakes and volcano...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

I was thinking that a Where's Wally dark ride would be great! You travel around a transit system surrounded by 3D characters and sets each having an LED light on, and the ride ops would position Wally in a different place every day. It would be a different set in every room, and you use a gun simila...
