Some events I would like to see (taking ideas from Europa Park, but what the hell) Night Opening Midsummer An opening until Midnight on Midsummer (or near to that) would be a great event at the Towers. Entrance could be £20 if you arrive after 3pm. Park opens rides until Midnight and a giant barbec...

When you say 'interact' Kelly, I think of a Maze! How magical would that be?! I could see it being a majour feature in the gardens if done well. Im having visions of a 1994esk advert, with Peter rabbit chasing someone through it . . . . Magical. Thats exactly along the lines of what i was thinking!...

Maybe we will see some of the coloured stripes in the new logo somewhere? Like the one's they've been using for the "Extraordinary" slogan. The "Where the magic never ends" slogan was around for a while, so if they are planing to use this extraordnary slogan for a while, maybe th...

I think it's great that they are looking at doing something about the skyride and the monorail, because both really are looking quite old and are in need of some good attention! I think it would be really good to get some new gondola's on the skyride that are like the pods on the London Eye - They c...

The pictures of the limescale really is quite bad! Something like that needs to be sorted out straight away! But how often do they inspect rooms? Do they bother? Because if they don't, the only people that are gonna spot it are either the guests or the cleaners. Now, are the cleaners really gonna lo...

Changing AT's logo is like BPB when they got rid of Mr Funshine :cry: The current logo, and its similar predecessors are instantly recognisable as Alton Towers. As mentioned, the park map would be a good start to improving the whole identity of the place. Couldn't agree more - The new logo for BPB ...

sounds good! as for rita style restrains, it could be interesting... but liam is right. the over shoulder straps are a bit un-userfriendly maybe an X car style restraint would work? would make the invertions more interesting. and bring a new element to the ride. I think the X car style restraint co...

Just watched a really good video here: http://www.towerofterror.org/media/behind.html Shows clips of the construction of the tower, and then general clips of the ride. Somewhere in the middle, there is a small clip of the grand opening of the ride - They have massive smoke type firework explosions! ...

Can't quite decide, but I've always been torn between The Hulk and Duelling Dragons at Universal's IOA - Two absoultely fantastic rides, which I've always voted top two for many years, even though I've been a lot more newer coasters since going on them..

More vertical drops would be good at AT, but you have to think, the runaway mine train is mainly a childrens ride it is not targeted at adrenalin junkies. It may not be targeted at adrenaline junkies, but I don't think it's targeted at kids either - Id say it was targeted at everyone! It may not be...

Alton Towers food is unhealthy

Taken from Alton Towers Almanac: In a survey of healthy food available at leading tourist attractions in the UK, Alton Towers fared poorly compared to others. The survey, conducted by The Soil Association, ranked Alton Towers joint seventh out of 14th. You might not think that was too bad, until yo...

Hmm tricky one this, cos in my option, I think Towers need quite a few of those out of the choices we've got on that list! Ok well first off, the one's that id say are definately out are inverted, flying, and vertical, cos we've already got those, so what's the point in having more! I doubt very muc...

Hmm not too sure on this one. I think it could work better for the UK residents - Maybe for us "enthusiasts" who live too far away, but want to work at Towers and need a place to stay? Could work I guess, wonder how much they'd charge! They'd probably rip off us somehow!! :P I doubt it wou...

To add to that Dave, i think if it is true that the SQR is gone, then perhaps next season, that queue will become a priority line, like it was when Spinball opened. AT could have seen an oppitunity here to offer priority on Spinball because the queues are constantly long. I didnt know that SW had a...

You have to remember though that with the new 10 row cars most of the seats will stick out over the edge of the track. Result = over 200ft ft up hanging on the edge of a vertical drop with nothing below you, not even the track! Now thats going to be scary! Ok ok, thats a good point! It would be a l...
