Re: Local Resident Ticket Question?

As far as I know there was an email that went round Alton Village saying that you could, but I'm not 100% sure.

Re: Merlin Parks Quick Questions

I think really that would warrant a new topic, but I can't see that they would be allowed to buy Pleasure Beach as it may cause a stir with the competition commission about owning a monopoly of Blackpool Attractions and also Theme Parks in the UK.

Re: New on-park restaurant ideas?

The 'Burger Kitchen' brand can now be found at The Blackpool Tower and it seems quite nice. I didn't eat there but you could see the food from the Tower Eye queueing area. Just waiting for the 'Original Sandwich Co' to pop up somewhere now.

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

^Some great pictures there Islander - the lighting puts Alton to shame as you said. The Krypt seems to have a lot of potential though, so I look forward to visiting later this week. On a different note there is great footage of Dragon's Fury, Kobra and other areas of the park on this year's [s:55svp...

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Did Carnival and Boiler House earlier, no queue for either even though X Sector was busy, we had to wait for a group in Carnival of Screams for 15 minutes as they wanted more than a three. Carnival felt very short whereas Boiler House was a good length. Hope the mazes are busier or they might not ru...

Re: Lakeside Theme Park - Season 2 now open!

Looking much better A5H, but I think the turnstile area looks a bit big and wide, giving an empty feel.

No, that letter comes with all tickets and is not relevant to your purchase. You need to show your park tickets.

Map .psd file?

Hi guys,

I'm learning photoshop skills at the minute, was just wondering whether anybody had a layered or photoshop file of the Alton Towers map? Or even just a version without the ride & shop labels?

Thanks in advance,

Re: 2012: New Attractions

the whole container as a shop? why not? it really does go with the theme and the look of the park. what else would anyone expect? I think the reason why others and myself are annoyed by the shipping container shop are the principles of it. It's the easy way out. Rather than just extending the size ...
