But Jase, wasn't that a Tussards 'creation'?



No, Tussauds have nothing to do with Legoland.

Oh Dear, that looks junk!

Definately hasn't inspired me to visit Legoland come October.

Let's hope this isn't a glimpse of things to come for Alton Towers! :|

Well, my sister will take me in September and we'll use bogofs. We're going to have to pay £4 than we would have done a few days ago. However you like to put it, its more money we're being robbed of. Because I soooo wanted to spend that £4 on the wide selection of gamestalls available... :x If you'...

Can get discount on both food and drink in both hotels :wink: So, has this changed recently or is it just for Tussuards (Merlin) Group Annual Passes? I've not tried since March or April, but a majority of the time they didn't give discount to Alton Towers Season Pass holders at the hotel bars or re...

I do agree, it's alot of money, but nobody is forced to pay £34 though, And like Alton Towers have repeatedly said, most people use vouchers, and you see them pretty much everywhere nowadays!

The Flume will get some sort of new theme within the Pirate theme obviously. New boats and themeing where there are ducks now.

Alton Towers won't want a Newly themed area with an old theme.


You could be right there, I have heard a few times that something about the flume maybe changing! :wink:

I don't like it, sorry Liam! :oops:

I think it would spoil the Gardens completely!

I believe the layout of Alton Towers is fantastic as it is, without having to intrude on something as special as the Gardens.

I love the Logo though! :P

Paddles? there are only logs on the bottom of the trough and pumps are at the turntable, apart from the wave machines not alot else in the trough apa...

I can't see many Parks following suit unless Alton Towers makes some hefty profit out of it! Its a totally seperate entity from AT, its run by a private company.[/quote] I'm well aware of that. So Alton Towers just let them dig up the Park and stick cameras everywhere free of charge? There must be ...

I doesn't seem very personalised on RITA and Spinball? It seems as though the majority of the DVD is stock footage... Not that impressed considering all the work that has had to go into it, and how long it's taken to get working! :? I can't see many Parks following suit unless Alton Towers makes som...

I think the characters look really, really good!

It's a shame they haven't put that much effort into creating a decent Park Character, or revamping Henry Hound!

I was reminded today, Tussauds Studios can do themeing, You only have to look at how well themed and presented Splash Landings Hotel and Cariba Creek is.

I don't know why all of a sudden the standards have dramatically changed? :(
