Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m impressed, it looks really colourful and unique! Well done Merlin, if only all your investments were as well themed as this!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I kind of like this Dungeon. It looks like MMM put a lot of effort into theming this attraction in the space of 6 months.
However, I am slightly disappointed they didn't make it into a new Toyland Tours, or something that fitted into the CCL area.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I never considered that they would add the restaurants later on. And I thought AT dungeon was supposed to be in the "The Towers" area, not DF.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

If the VR was removed, that would be great news! I never was a fan of the whole VR idea, so I wouldn’t miss it anyway. And VR removal would speed up the queues, too. It’s a win-win!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I kinda like this years map mainly because they put the rollercoaster logos on. However, I don’t like the fact the restaurants aren’t on.

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

That sounds like a great idea for a land! It would appeal to the 6-12 yrs market well, and revive that area of the park. Just add the Dungeon and the Burger Kitchen (with a refurbishment) to the Towers area, and that would sort out any theming problems. Only problem, would the Ferris Wheel go above ...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I don’t think it will move to Thorpe Park. I think it will be sold and then probably never seen again.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m really excited what they’ll do to improve Splash Landings. Perhaps they might give it a refurb, or a general spruce up.
Who knows with Merlin.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

If they are a separate ride, that would be great! The park needs more flat rides, so this could be a brilliant addition to the park! They might be junior drop towers, but they are still flat rides nonetheless. I don’t think they’ll go in Cbeebies Land, that area of the park has plenty of flat rides....

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

What I was thinking is that they'll be in the Dungeons. One of them could run all the time, but they would run both of them at peak times. They could share the same queue line because I've seen this idea on The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios Florida. This is because there are multiple simulators...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

This is interesting. I think this will go in the new AT Dungeons, but who knows at this point in time.
Nearly every Dungeons in existence has a drop tower-style ride, so I could be right about them going in the Dungeons.

“Unique” sleeping experience... it isn’t like you can get the same experience elsewhere for under half the price...

I like the look of these, but I don’t like them as much as the Stargazing Pods. And Chessington doesn’t need more accommodation!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I agree with you Nickolai. I personally think the magic never went away, but if they could re add the SRQs and add at least 2 new flat rides, that would be good.

They look very nice, better than what I was expecting! Sure, there isn’t Europea-Park full-on theming, but at least they have character and they feel slightly magical.
