STAFF. If Drayton Manor want any chance of improving they MUST improve their staffs attitude. I've have been once to Drayton (last year) and the staff were so rude and could care less about customer service. I didn't enjoy the day at all. Also, I think park management should be a bit more diplomatic...

Alton Towers new TV Advert

I guess we've all seen Alton Towers new look towards marketing (if not visit www.altontowers.com ), but how do you rate their new advert out of 10?

How about travelling forward in time? Maybe 50 years? See where the park is then. That'll be cool.

Well i'm not voting yet as I have only ridden Rita. I'm going to Thorpe this weekend so I'll vote when I return, but to be honest I wasn't really what I'd call 'impressed' with Rita as I have been with Alton's past coasters, so we shall see.

No, no, no. Nemesis is classed as an inverted. A floorless is a B&M sitdown with no floor:

What I'm really trying to find out, does anyone have any confirmed information that Alton are considering a floorless for the park any time in near or distant future. Rumors from staff would be interesting too. :wink:

Not too sure on removing Corkscrew. Part of me wants to keep it but part of me thinks it's wasting valuable space.

probably Forbidden Valley behind Ripsaw or something. I believe that if you put too many coasters into one area it looks messy. Yea true, it was just an idea. I think through the gardens where the woodie was going to go could be possible and it wouldn't take up as much room as the woodie would have...

To be honest I don't think Alton is short of space, just retrictions so finding somewhere to build it wouldn't be too much of a problem, probably Forbidden Valley behind Ripsaw or something. I think if they did build one it would be in a pit like Nemesis to cover the restrictions. I really hope they...

B&M Floorless

Does anyone else think Alton Towers should get a B&M floorless or does anyone know if it's in the pipeline for the future? I love B&M's floorless coasters, they are my second favorite 'type' of coaster, first is B&M inverted. I think Kraken is amazing and something simular in Alton would...

Did you know that they have no controll over the train. All they can do it stop it if there is a problem. Yep that's right. I beleive they used to have full control when it worked on the old analogue system but when it changed to the new more reliable digital system the drivers became...well as you...

I hate mindless vandals that ruin things, I REALLY do. Maybe the could put security cameras in the trains and actually monitor them and prosecute vandals when they're caught and ban them from the park for life. Then again the culprits are never caught are they. Winds me up!

I would do the following: * Theme every train with a different ride - Nemesis could be painted very sinister, Air could be bright and airy (no pun intented), Rita could have race track colours, etc. * Put all new seats in them to match the theme of the train you are in. * Flat panel TV's adverising ...

Magical or Spooky

As you know, Alton Towers have always had the idea that they are a magical theme park but does anyone else think that Alton Towers comes across as being spooky and sinister rather than magical? I don't mean that in a bad way, cause I love the eerie-ness of the park. ALTON TOWERS WhErE tHe MaGiC nEvE...

Maybe do something through the wooded area in the gardens. That would be quite good. I like that idea too. The Gardens could be filled with fog and atmospheric music. It would look good aswell on the Skyride. Yes that would be cool, VERY spooky. Come on Alton, get your a*se in gear and listen to us...

Hi Nutty, welcome.

Yeah I agree the TOTT should return and the rest of the park should be themed simular to Halloween 2003!
