Re: Legoland Windsor Resort - General Discussion

As reported by SouthParks News , Legoland Windsor have submitted plans for a new family coaster in Duplo Valley. If approved, the coaster will open during the 2020 season. https://www.southparks.co.uk/files/2019/08/CPD-RIDE_GENERAL_ARRANGEMENT.jpg https://www.southparks.co.uk/files/2019/08/CPD-PLAT...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Someone commented on Facebook when I shared the image, saying it could be themed to the children's story Dear Zoo. Thoughts?

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Aardman Animation would be good. But from this teaser fence I'm very reluctant to say Legoland area now. It may not be that anymore.

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Yeah I'd say a walkthrough. But Nina's Science Lab is technically walkthrough and that's gone now (no idea what's replacing it) so...maybe not. Also, on one of the boxes it says "Handel With Care"...Sir Handel was a Thomas and Friends character. So either Thomas Town? Or a whole area with ...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Don't know if you have seen TowersStreet pictures, but now, Merlin Magic Making are onsite at House of Monsters (with a fence round the attraction).

Will CCL be rethemed? 2020???

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

Also, is it just me or does anyone else wanna see Easter receive the returning "Chocolate Towers" event. I thought that would be good for the anniversary. Bringing back previous events.

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

The Lego rumour has been knocking about for a few years now and I always thought it was a bit far-fetched, but with the recently announced waterpark over at Gardaland, it seems it could hold some weight. I dunno though, it just doesn't seem right for Alton Towers. Unfortunately we wouldn't see a fa...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Now, I'm not confirming this because this was just said by someone on a Facebook post somewhere, but apparently, speculation says that Cloud Cuckoo Land will apparently be closed off after the summer holidays. The big rumour is Lego. I'm not confirming or denying this, cause it could be absolutely r...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I think a Horrible Histories area would fit in well.  You have the Dungeon already based on funny gory history so HH would work well.  Yes it's BBC but not a big well known BBC brand like Doctor Who and many will know the books more than the TV programme. That would be amazing! A Horrible Histories...

Re: Chessington - The Future

I think that with Merlin Entertainments, they like to spread a major investment across their parks. The latest rumours suggests that Gardaland will get it in 2020 with their waterpark and also, rumours suggests that Chessington World Of Adventures will get a new coaster in 2021. We're not sure at th...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

A big themed area stretching from the Dungeons to Th13teen would be great. Doctor Who Land with that BBC IP connection is available (especially with CBeebies already in).

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Maybe they'll do something with the Nickelodeon Outta Control building and combine it with buildings next to it...if it's a storage building, maybe build a new storage site. Also, I think that Ice Age 4D was originally closed for future development, so something is definitely up with that

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I do think that the removal of House of Monsters is possibly for a CCL Retheme (with an IP). Maybe not David Walliams, but I'd like to see something original or in terms of IP's, something like Aardman Animation or Doctor Who (BBC connection with Cbeebies Land) or another IP

I think its less likely that CCL will be rethemed by 2020, however I wanted to throw my own idea in the mix...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

It's definitely a fantastic option. Maybe 2020 could be a year for it. Obviously they could just do a Thorpe Park in 2020 (which would suck!) However, I wanna see a CCL Retheme and a Duel overhaul and Ghostbusters 5D would be a good addition. I'd also like to see a classic Haunted House storyline wi...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

On top of that, I do wanna see at least a CCL refurbishment or some kind of new ride which will one up on Thorpe Park at least. I'd like a flat ride but I've a feeling that it could be a CCL refurbishment if anything.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

Kinda like that would be fantastic. I personally think they should learn from their mistakes and do a proper Derren Brown Ghost Train system that it's amazing and not tacky and unreliable! Ghost Train is fantastic...when it's all working. A Nemesis themed trip to the corre with the VR as a Phalanx w...
