Another blow for the consumer.

Burger King meals will cost well over £5 at Alton Towers compared to £3.69 for McDonald Meals.

I doubt this new ride will help turn around the big drop in attendance figures.

I understand this year has been the worst for sometime!

This ride will be aimed at Chavs. A new area to avoid :evil: Coaster enthusiasts will go to thorpe in the future rather that AT. Pardon :| This area will be aimed at families . And the addition of one ride for an audience other than thrill seekers does not make the presence of Nemesis, Air, Oblivio...

If this is the new main attraction for next year then I won't be going and I know alot of other people won't either.

£32 + another increase for next year, plus closed attractions such as black hole & 3d cinema.

I think they are preparing to close down the towers for good

Merlin are a private equity firm and they need the money to invest in other companies not companies they already own! - fact!!!

This is very bad news.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will exude much more magic than any flat, as will it be more special.

I doubt many people over the age of 16 will be attracted to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory compared to say a Frisbee

Alton Towers needs two new flats over winter to bring back the magic

It looks like Alton Towers is really going down hill again if all they have planned for next year is a revamp of "around the world in 80 days or more recently known as Toyland Tours" and a new slide for the water park!!!

Alton Towers is a full of yobs (and that includes some of the staff)

There is no queue jumping in the Florida parks. Plus higher security etc
