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).

Imagine if someone at Towers is reading this and see Doctor Who Land and think "We've got our 2020 project" lol

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

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...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

I really hope that the Alton Towers Dungeon this year was a phase 1 redevelopment of that area. 2020's focus needs to be on CCL and redeveloping that area of the park. Also, I feel like Wicker Man is out of touch with Mutiny Bay, so with Mutiny Bay 11 years old this year, this could be Alton Towers ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Honestly I've seen the vids from inside parts of the attraction (excluding the Black River Boat Ride) and honestly, it might look like a fort/Saxon gateway at the facade, but inside there's so much great stuff to see! I agree that the facade looks slightly disappointing, but inside I'm so excited ca...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I think I'd rather expand behind Galactica in the car park area and have some new flats or family rides in there and then build a sign heading into Galactica for a space themed area

I am hoping Galactica is a phase one for a new area!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

That's absolutely true. Hopefully though this all puts an end to the CCL saga and we can look towards a new area next year to complement the Dungeon. They wouldn't have added a Dungeon if they didn't have a phase 2 with the surrounding area. This is Merlin we are talking about here.... Anything is ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I would say that the majority of more reasonable-minded people understand the need/reasoning for the Dungeon to be upcharge. However, I think there are frustrations with the fact that this isn’t the sort of attraction the theme park is most in need of at this time, following the removal of several ...

We do know that guests will be making a stop at the Witch of Burslem’s haunted cottage and the judge is the Bishop of Stafford. The boat ride is definitely a sewer boat trip from that new Twitter video and of course the Torturer and the Plague Doctor. The last show in my opinion is secret, cause fir...
