Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

They do look incredibly ram like because of the shape of them, I’m so intrigued now can’t wait to see it when it’s all in the open and what exactly it is/ the backstory and full theming of it. Whatever it is it’s looking amazing.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Wow it looks brilliant. I’m not 100% what it is but it’s looking cool! It looks quite like a skull with mammoth or ram type horns to me what does everyone else think? Can’t wait to see more pics thanks!

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

I think sub terra was a really good idea too! I like the fact that you could ride that first then learn the back story before going on the ride. With all the theme parks using “immersive” at the moment I love how you can build upon the story and prestory of a concept of a ride and i thought it was g...

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I’m looking forward to seeing how they encorporate the area into the marketing too it’s very much all about the flames and the chosen ones & the type at the moment. I wonder when we will see more or hear about a potential area theme or which is belongs too? I hope they don’t make it so it is jus...

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

I like oblivion. Although sometimes I feel the que to ride time is a little long for how long you are on the ride. I’ll nevee forget when it opened and the terror of going on it for the first time. It’s definitley a classic now and think it will be around for a long time to come. I do hope so anyway...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I personally always really enjoy a ride on the spinball, I agree it gets so busy maybe because of its location and the fact it can be seen both entering and leaving the park so people always run to it, however I don’t think it should go. I always liked the concepts of the flat rides for dark forest ...

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I reckon an Alton Village/harbour like mentioned above could work really well! From what we’ve been seeing the trailers remind me so much of the film the village. And it mentions the coming together/welcoming so it could definitley have a village feel to it near the haunted hollow. If it was some so...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Beornen Certainly sounds more original and stand out than Wickerman, I complelty agree with saw-x-smile though in saying that it will definitely confuse the general public to a) the meaning (which could be a good thing for intrigue?) and b) how you say it? However I reckon unique and maybe difficult...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Id love to see some of the things from the original concepts for the dark first realised. I remember seeing some images when we first heard about the themeing of the area which had some kind of twisted tree trunk arms ride. I love thirteen and they've given Rita a different story to fit into the are...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It's great to see some vertical construction happening! I really like the colour of the wood dark, I definitley think the natural wood will look really nice against all the woodland in the old flume site. Looking forward to seeing exactly what the themeing element is, and what the unique point of th...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I hope that they don't get rid of sub terra as apart from the fact that there was the investment I think it's a good ride to do before nemesis and adds to the theme of the area, the end part always scares me but I love the drop part and think it should stay

Re: 2017: New Attractions

I think that the dark forest would really benefit from a new flat, I keep going back to thinking when the original concept was proposed for it we saw those branch arm things - they would be so cool and something to help make the theme a bit stronger (I never thought the Rita retheme worked well) Als...

Re: X-Sector refurbishment?

I agree that it's about time some of the towers TLC was put into this area. I really enjoy the water spray on oblivion and think it adds to the ride experience, and all the projections inside the smiler building. I think the space where submission was should be ulitlsed for a flat as they always wor...

Re: SW8

Brilliant news that it is all approved and ready to start! I agree that the skytode should stay open as a view of anything construction wise for any visitor is exciting and get people wanting to come back. I think a woodie is something that Alton towers has really missed as it will look so good goin...

Re: If you owned the Alton Towers Resort, what would you do

This is a good one as I'm sure there's so much that everyone would like to see! :) For me I would like to see in the future if I had an unlimited budget/ anything goes. 1. Add a couple of decent restaurants to the main entrance and increase opening hours to later in the evening. Maybe add a firework...

Re: Past rides: "Where are they now?" The Guide

It seems such a shame to see submission like that :(

Even though it was uncomfortable to ride it was a good ride to go on when ques were big for Oblivion.

Re: 2017: New Attractions

I think it's just going to be the ceebeebies ride for 2017, especially with all the sw8 work ongoing. However I would love to see a new flat in The Dark Forest area where the swings area used to be. Remember those visuals when the Dark forest first arrived showing heavily themed branch arms aswell a...

Re: SW8

I could see the Mine theming working well within Katanga canyon, will this be a link to the pre-show building do we think it could be some sort of going down the mine shaft video, then the sound tunnels could be disguised as mine shafts? This would look good. I was suprised that this ride was going ...
