Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I dont have the numbers to support it, but The World of David Walliams should send the message that Alton Towers has gotten past "The Smiler incident" and has been able to invest money in the park again. 2020 is shaping up to be a lost year for so many.

Re: Alton Towers Hotel & Splash Landings

This is such an easy time to build both bad and good will up with your customers and the general public.

Firms being unreasonable now will regret it in the future.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Kinda surprised it's taken them this long to announce postponement with a place like Alton Towers like football stadiums attracting people from all corners of the country. True for international guests as well, even if they can't get in right now. I should look up how much the near by B&Bs cost...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Of course this is an ever evolving issue, Alton Towers is not a football stadium but even when football has been suspended, the idea a theme park was planning to open seemed crazy to me. It's not like Disney was staying open, Merlin had every reason to delay opening before yesterday.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

It could end up coming down to the lawyers. If you close one ride stating concerns about the spread of Cornavirus but then someone catches it on a trip to the park, can that person not argue that Thorpe Park could have done more to stop the spread of a virus they knew could be a problem?(as proved b...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

but if you have someone on site with the Cornavirus, its still a risk, be you sitting next to them on a rollercoaster, or using a VR headset. I agree it would be a more effective way of spreading it, but if someone showed up at the park with it, they could still infect others, with or without a shar...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

I guess this is a risk, but if it comes to shutting to down, do they not then have to consider shutting the whole park?

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

Was always going to be a small ride based on where it was built and the amount of time they have to build it. Looks like there's 6 scenes so assuming 30 seconds between cars the ride will be about three minutes long (assuming it's a stop start system, if it's continuous movement it could be longer ...

Speaking as a night owl, I am 100% behind late night openings. None of  this day light trash, 10pm - 6am will suit me fine.

It might be too late in the season for me to go now, will have to look into it. Plus I dont want any of that "Love Island" rubbish, I’m not going into the park on one of those days. The Resort have no Love Island branded events this year. I’m not gonna lie, I lost touch with their social ...

Re: Stealth

what is the state of play on Stealth, the last time I went (a couple of years ago) it was closed, and that didnt make me happy, is it now going to be open for the rest of the season? Stealth has just undergone a fairly extensive set of maintenance, and appears to be back in operation with good reli...
