Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

I think some comments regarding the GP in this topic are really shocking and unfair. After all we ARE part of the GP too, we're not some superior life form. Dealing with the theatre as part of my studies, we become concious of just how aware we must be of our audience's attention and how hard it is...

Re: Merchandise: 2012

Surely you need UNIT:NST for such a purchase? All Nemesis Sub:Terra mugs, hoodies, simple mugs and pens are stocked in the Air shop right next to the Nemesis stock. :) Do look out for those N S:T "deluxe" mugs. Only noticed mine had a weird hole in the vinyl when I got back home, not cool...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

Right, just gone past again. About 10 Merlin Magic makers I could spot inside the container and outside the ride area. Lots of tubing and all. From what I can make out, inside the container the mesh fencing splits the room in half vertically then splits it horizontally. Hard to explain without pictu...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

At present, the side door to the container is open, towards the top where it connects to the original structure. Inside you can clearly see a mesh fencing separating the room in half.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

The thing I was wondering was, I presume the people scaring you will be 'Phalanx Operators', but then I thought why would they be scaring you? If you should be scared of anything it would be the Nemesis creature which is on the loose, the people who are meant to be protecting you aren't going to be...

Re: monorail

When the Towers Street Suite was first decided upon, it was before the 2008 change of alton and it eventually came in 2007 during a weak branding move for the park which was adamant that ITHOTMK was in the past. They basically decided that they wanted one main theme which was hinted through differe...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Noone is saying Nemesis Sub-Terra is currently as they wanted it and im fully aware that management are not happy with what was delivered but that still boils down to bad project management from someone in the park. I'm not saying that's what people are saying. What I mean is that everyone seems to...

But the problem is, everyone is so quick to look at the filtered picture and instantly point the finger direct at Merlin or Alton when we don't fully know the reasons behind it not being the end product we all expected. We see this filtered picture, not the entire canvas.  If this was how it w...

The problem is, Alton have tried so hard and they're still hated for it. I'm not saying Sub:Terra is the diamond in the crown but it definitely has potential. The potential I believe Alton envision it having since it was planned, yet for reasons unknown it seems to have been lost in the making. Yet...

Re: Marketing burnt on to your retinas

I seriously miss the electricity days of the 2004 marketing. Loved that look, so dark yet magical. Hell, even miss the pipe days of 2008! But I must say, I just want alton to find a good solid marketing identity they can run with for a good while. Stars were timeless for Alton and they made the mag...

Re: 2012 Map & Marketing

It detracts from the original points and motif. Guests of the general public aren't really going to make the assumption of the spa or splash from looking at the island and palm tree. If the island had an image from the spa or water park on it, then maybe. The image is too reliant of this years offe...

Re: 2012 Map & Marketing

Was given this the other day and all I could say was "Oh My God". Whoever thought making the towers look like an old Windows '98 PC Game front cover, was seriously disturbed. Like the Ice Age bit - only because of scrat. :) They're trying to make Alton look too "escapey" and bus...

Yes, but this is a clash of IP with a place that made an effort to get away from a brand within a brand - but they're back to square one. And you can find many brightly dressed people around and about. Disney, Cruise Ships, Ke$ha's "Take It Off" video, Stores, General Public...it's everyw...

Re: Go!Go!Go! show set for Cloud Cuckoo Land Theatre in 2011

Kicking off big time about this. I hate you a little bit right now Towers. Why oh why would you do this?! It's meant to be a place of escapism and away from real life. Don't clash the two worlds together. Sonic shouldn't be here and neither should this new show. Snorlix was a perfect mascot for the...

I really love all the rubber ducklings and the quacking and all. It makes me so happy just thinking about it. It's nice to see some improvements made yes, but I'm glad it's remaining as a soapy, bath-time bubble-fest. Just how I have grown to love it. (If only they can get rid of the piss smell on ...

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: Future Discussion

I really love Chessington. Though, I hate this whole "Resort" branding which is becoming very prominent this year. It really doesn't have much to it on the resort side of things. A hotel? Is that all? :/ Hardly resort standard! The hotel is really lifeless and Holiday Inn NEED to boost it...

Re: Duel's future

I really, really want them to entirely rip out Duel and re-start from the beginning, more imagination, one continuous theme and something which is far more entertaining. Whilst Duel is much much stronger than it's brother at Chessington (Tomb Blaster) there's still a lack of spark. It's lost it com...

Whhistle, thank you for all the releases, especially the fish and chips demo and also the fact that in the TS Family Resturant mix it has the Cred Street 2008 music in it!

Thank you :)
