But this is Alton Towers and the UK were talking about, so dont hold your breath. Ive lost all hope for future attractions now. Themeing makes a ride IMHO, and AT and the UK in general just dosent do themeing well. Which is a shame. . . That what's it about. It's not just the old theming that needs...

I knew there was another topic. Thanks. I will, but I doubt a mere petition will solve the problem.

Alton Towers' Magic

I'm sure this has been posted before, but I couldn't find the topic, and I want to give a clear opinion of my views. Alton Towers has recently decided to take a route to make the park more like a "resort". But is it loosing its magic? Here are a few things that have been lost that I before always th...

Nothing stupid like "Put a drop tower in X-Sector" please! *sigh* So here goes.


I don't see what's wrong with that.

But anyway, I would say.

3) Add more theming to rides.

Teehee, Mark, did you see me walk up to the blonde girl at the entrance and saying
"Do you know when this will be open" and she gave the accurate and percise answer of "Just a min." I'm small :lol:

I might've said hi if I knew who you were.

Liam, you'd be surprised. Think about the crowds on Saturday. It was so popular- and Rita- many people came, and a LOT were not fans. We aren't the only people who go to the park.
And it shouldn't matter if we're enthusiasts or not, we're still visitors. It's not an excuse.

A day wouldn't be fair. People plan their holidays JUST to go on this ride. That would be so heartbreaking.

Cheers Tom.

But does anyone (this would make my day) know when Lift A will be fixed? I need to know, so could anyone help? Maybe Locker? Maybe AJ? Maybe Anyone? :( Will it be fixed for Thursday? :D

Cheers,

I think Alton Towers got help from the family as to how to make it.

Can someone tell me if lift A was working and what the queue time was today?Thanks :)

So, will the other elevator work for tomorrow?

Also is the first preshow video in 3D? Wouldn't you have to wear glasses?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Mixed reactions:

Ride- AMAZING!

But now I've seen it I won't get a suprise- I felt as thought I was there on the lifts, but it wasn't even moving for me. I'm gonna die of shock- happy shock. I want to die! :?

I got a golden ticket :W,

A few questions please:

1. How busy will the ride be on Thu and Sat this week?
2. Does CATCF have a shop?

Cheers, Andrew :W
