Re: 30 before 30

Both Speed and Megafobia at Oakwood should probably be included

But I'm sure Merlin wouldn't do that again! 

Personally, I think the wall just looks Alton Towers themed rather than an IP. It looks like their family style and brand.

Re: Worst thing you've ever accidently done at a park.

Again, not a park but when my grandad picked me up from nursery many years ago he set off the fire alarm, causing the entire primary school to have to evacuate.

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I still think it would be great if Aardman and Merlin teamed up and created a whole new world of characters I don't think that's going to happen, honestly. After BPB put in Thrill-O-Matic, I think the GP would presume Towers is copying BPB. It's a better idea than the 7th bloody Thomas Town/Land. Y...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

I’ve come up with a sort of development plan for Alton Towers. It is mainly based on my wishes and hopes but I have tried to think about profitability and commercial viability. I’ll start with my year-by-year plans then move on to general improvements to be carried out at any stage. 2020 – The theme...

With the free tickets from The Sun, can they be upgraded to a season pass or can that only be done with a purchased ticket? Also can premium season passes be bought on the day?

As you pay £0 for the free ticket, you would have to pay the full price for the season pass to upgrade to it.

Re: Merlin General Discussion - New Owners agreed in £4.8bn deal

I thought people were quite excited before I read this thread. Firstly, Lego haven't bought merlin. Lego's parent company (which exists almost solely to serve Lego) have bought some more of Merlin. That's it. I am confident in the future of the company. Lego have a great company ethos, which is cert...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Just got back from AT for the first time in afew years.  Nemesis as good as ever.  Does anyone else have the theme tune stuck in their head when they get home?   Impressed with the 15 minute waiting time for a bank holiday Monday. Sorry to be off topic but what is it that makes a coaster rough with...

We think we are probably the world leader in themed accommodation

Nick Varney said that. Has he heard of Disney?

Re: Merlin General Discussion

I think to brand it as a midway attraction it has to be replicable? Warwick castle certainly can't be built in any city Merlin fancies! I did enjoy great Yarmouth. Even just looking at joyland and pleasure beach was plenty interesting. One of the highlights was finding a small window in the building...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

And sea life Great Yarmouth is missing from the map Yarmouth is not really worth a trip for nowadays.  It has a lot less aquariums and not that many interesting fish now.  IMO it's really gone down hill the last two seasons.  It used to be a good Sealife  My first visit to Great Yarmouth was in Feb...

Re: The Bear Grylls Adventure - Birmingham NEC

That is a fantastic deal! I don't have a MAP but for those prices I highly recommend trying it. It's a great opportunity to try obscure, expensive activities such as indoor skydiving at a far more affordable price.
