Re: Alton towers dungeon stag do

I’ve heard somewhere that you can send embarrassing and/or funny stories in for the Judge to read out. If you want to know more about this, go on the Dungeons website.

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

At least he said ‘inversions’ instead of ‘loops’ or ‘twists’ or ‘upside down bits’.

I think it will. But knowing Merlin, it probably won’t happen.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m pleased that the ride is now open, and that it has a MOJ theme! The only problem with it is that they could have painted it yellow and black, which is the Smiler’s colour scheme.

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

Is Merlin going to be absorbed into the KIRKBI brand, or will it still be called Merlin?

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 would love to see a D...

Overheard near Thi13een's entrance by a lady to her friend:

"I hope there aren't any big drops on this ride!"

I'm pleased to see the signs back, too! They were such a good edition to X Sector, so I'm glad to see them back!

Re: Towers Loving Care

I like those new signs because they fit in well with the area. However, it says 14 LOOPS, not inversions.

I don’t think they will have a Dungeon, because the London Dungeon is nearby.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

I would like to see at least 3 new flat rides. One in Forbidden Valley, one in X Sector, and one in Dark Forest. And some removals and rethemes. FV flat ride-Ripsaw’s former site. Maybe a Huss Breakdance like Dynamo, or another, newer Huss Top Spin, and theme it to the Nemesis monster/the Phalanx.  ...

Re: Heritage

I really like the Towers and the Gardens. They are historic and without them, the theme park would have never been built!
The Gardens are a great place to relax during a busy day, too.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

That’s good. I never liked the VR, so this is a good improvement. I wish they would change it back to Air, because I liked Air’s branding better.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

They were testing the rapids yesterday, but still not open due to the ride still being in the hands of the tech staff. They are hoping for the ride to be up and running next month and also I've heard from two different sources (but don't hold me to that) that they are planning to turn back on the w...
