Wouldn't they just tell the people complaining (is it still the ropers?) just to move house. I definitely don't see any rides being removed just because a few people are complaining.


Very unlikely any court would allow such a move by Merlin, or any other company.

Never ever underestimate the malicious willpower of NIMBYism.

(Even if the themepark/airport/anything has been there years before you were)

i360 Tower, Brighton UK

Anyone else following this project? Plans are afoot to build a 600 foot observation tower in Brighton. Designed by the same firm who envisioned the London Eye, it appears to lower itself down to ground level for boarding and then rise up to a height of 462 feet. It will be the tallest observation to...

Re: The Future of RITA..

I could be wrong on this but im sure rita was not meant to be there but because they made the launch track for stealth to long and or they changed the original plans for stealth so they moved the extra parts to alton. Stealth was originally designed sort of the same as xcelerator at knotts berry fa...

Re: Alton Towers - Quick Questions

Evening all, quick question from me, is it possible to get food from the burger company or the fried chicken company restaurants for takeaway or is it strictly eat in?

Many thanks,

Re: Welcome to the new forums!

I can't find a button which goes back to the home page, and I have to close the window, then open the forum again, or go back to get the board index. Just click the TowersTimes logo at the top of the page, Lewis. I also don't like it how it's default to get emailed topic replies. I'm just getting s...

Re: Welcome to the new forums!

Loving the new design, well done to all involved. It looks fresh and clean. The one problem I can see is that when someone replies to a thread in any given topic, it shows the time of the post and the user who made the post, but it doesn't show what topic the post was in, could this be sorted out? O...

Re: Planned coaster for Ireland

That's good news, I hope it is a success. My family live in Ireland, and the guy who owns the house and land next door also owns the Funtasia company, who operate what I think is the only thing similar to a theme park, in Bettystown, co Meath. It's an arcade with fairground rides on the roof, but in...

Re: Favourite years?

If I could I'd love to go back in time to the opening of the RMT and Haunted House, then forward in time to the start of the 1994 season for Nemesis and forward again to 1998 for the opening of Oblivion. Looking back, it's incredible how much has changed. I think seeing all the clothes and styles we...

Re: Best/Worst places to eat in Alton Towers?

I know this is not technically on topic, but do the pizza and pasta places at Merlin parks offer a veggie choice? I remember eating there when I was a carnivore, but that was ages ago and can't remember. Other than that, pizza and pasta has always been my favourite at their other parks.
