it should indeed.
I heard the new music for the first time at the park a few weeks ago. Im sorry, I tried to like it, but it just isnt AT. Its not as bad as when they just played indie and pop music on towers street though, completly ruined the atmosphere.

At least it wasnt on that Space Simulation ride though, another death on that and they might have had to make it noticably less intense.

Jeez, anymore and something serious might have to be done!

I think we should take advantage of the valley between FV and Ug land and stick a coaster in there. Imagine, zipping through the valley missing the trees by inches. Question is what type of coaster? Im probably gonna be flamed for this, but I dont want a woodie, I'd rather have another inverted coas...

Yes, purely because of how unique it is. Most theme parks have atmosphere, but none have anything on Alton! The Towers,gardens and history give the park so much character, that nowhere else can even try and replicate. And when we get some more bigger rides installed, AT will become even more popular...

The AT staff are awesome, especially the Nemesis ops. Once, they didnt have as many people operatin her as they shouldve done, and so the few staff they had were running around like crazy, they wernt fustrated though, they were makin jokes and laughing all the time, it really brightens up your visit.

I really want to go to AT this year for either fireworks or Adrenaline week(if they do it again) The coloured lighting idea is fantastic, but again they would need quite bright lights to avoid accidents. Alton in the dark would be amazing though, they have to do Adrenaline week again!

good idea Toxic, would make an awesome dark story ride. The whole Labyrinth thing you talked about would be amazing, if anybody has even been to the Milky Way in Devon there is something similar there.

its people like this who give teenagers a bad name. The only thing is though, its the minority of teenagers who do this kind of thing, yet the media makes out that all teenagers are troublesome yobs. This event is sad and shouldve never happened, but dont think that all teens are like this!

Magic hands down.

There is nothing quite like walking down Towers St with the original music in the background, looking at the towers gleaming in the sun.
