Re: Nemmy's 20th Birthday

I would love for there to be a small ad campaign, either on TV or just on park along these lines. After being restrained for 20 years, the Nemesis monster has tried to escape once again. This could then lead to new scenery being added/edited. Now my photoshop skills are awful, so you will have to be...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

My idea for scarefest... A stage show set around a magic act. The show would start out with the magician welcoming everyone to the show as if it were just a magic act going on. The magician would perform one or two minor tricks with volunteers from the audience, whilst telling a story of how magicia...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

The History of Alton Towers. I would like for this to be an actual historical tour around the Towers.  Either with a 'tour guide' or animated busts/suits of armour/paintings telling you spooky stories in different parts of the Towers. The twist being that the deeper into the Towers you go, the ...

Re: Oblivion - Desperate re-theme needed!

I love Oblivion, as a rollercoaster it won't outdate for a long time. The theme won't outdate for a long time either. However, the acting in the video does feel a bit too cheesy/early doctor who.  The writing for the videos is perfect, just not executed that well.  I do remember a time whe...

Re: Early Ride Time (ERT) 2013

I went on saturday (8th June) and some rides didnt have staff at the entrances from 9am til 10am. I met a two friends who stayed in the hotel overnight and they entered at 9am with us, the runaway mine train was walk on without checks so we did that a few times before walking to FV, my friends then ...

Rita - I've always said it...put a cover over the launch track, the first thing you can see or sense after the launch is the hard right turn at the end of the straight.

Re: Alton Towers radio

I like the idea of the interactivity of it. Imagine being able to text in and get shout outs or be able to hear peoples stories about the park. You could hear someones story of the first time they visited in the 80s or a younger person who never even knew of the existance of the black hole. The thou...

Re: First Ever Alton Towers Experience!

When I was 16 in 2005, me and my girlfriend at the time went to Alton Towers after months of her saying ''I can't believe you've never been'' I'd always liked roller coasters but had only ever been to American Adventure as it was closer.  I'd also recently been to florida which kinda spurred me...

Re: Would Oblivion be the same without the underground section?

If the ride didnt have the hole, then I would imagine it would either be in a different park of the park, or it would be more of a landscaped ride than it is, it would probably have had less of a vertical drop, maybe only 20 feet or so, but it would have twisted and turned more around x sector. The ...

Re: Your World First Ideas

Gyro balls instead of cars on the track. A free spinning ball on a gyroscope...any time the track inverts it sends the ball spinning in a different direction. I like the idea of having brakes for each ball so you can slow down the spinning of the ball if you choose to do so. I got the idea from thos...

Re: Scarefest 2012: Reviews

The Sanctuary. I thought it was a great maze.  What a great start to the day for me and my friends, only a ten minute Queue (which was made even better by the fact we joined 30 minutes before our time slot) Everything makes me jump, even closing a car door too loudly makes me jump.  So the...

Re: Litterbugs

I had an idea to try to combat chewing gum dropping around the park. For anyone that has ever looked down as you approach the front of queuelines, there tends to be a lot of gum on the floor because people realise  ''ooops, i might swallow this if i go on a roller coaster'' and because there ar...

Alton Towers Treasure Hunt

I had this idea from the Scarefest App and thought it could be a great idea for the park going forward. Around the park are random QR codes, some of them very well hidden, some quite easy, some of them are just dummy QR codes too. There could be different levels of difficulty to finding the hidden Q...

Re: ScareTour, Alton Towers & Scarefest 20/21 October

That sounds amazing Mark.

I'd love to experience things like that.

I know in the past there have been behind the scenes tours etc, but how can you get involved in things like that?

I would love to do a tour during the off season

Re: Future of Ripsaw? What would you want as a replacement?

I always assumed that both Ripsaw and Blade were the tools used to dig up the nemesis creature.

Re: 2014 - 150 Lodge Resort Development

I think the lodges are a good idea.  At the moment I can't afford to stay there without pre planning. If I wanted to stay at the AT hotel and go to the park, I would need a few months to save first. If there was a budget option, such as lodges, that could be booked for larger groups, i could qu...

Re: Best and Worst Queue Lines At Alton

The worst for me is by far Rita and 13 (the cattle pen part) Rita was much more bearable when it played music, they had a perfect playlist. At least with 13 you do have the small section of highly themed queue inside the building. Air can also be awful on a busy day when the whole queue is opened up...

Re: The (stupid?) park map

I'd like to see large maps dotted around the park. For example as you enter the X sector, there is a big map board, with only X sector on with more detail on them. Also randomly dotted around, large map boards of the whole park saying ''you are here'' with arrows pointing where the other sections of...

Re: Alton Towers - without height restrictions

Honestly i believe if the height restriction were never there, we wouldn't have ANY of the world firsts at all. If Alton were looking to buy a new roller coaster, they would have gone to the likes of B&M and would have happily walked away with a carbon copy of another ride that had been tried an...
