Re: Alton Towers 2013 Map

The current map does look amazing as artwork but as a map its terrible! There are no clear paths, and the rides are hard to distinguish as they are all too close together and overlapping!

They cant even fit SW7 onto the map!

Really love this park, great job! :D

Is the park any closer to being ready for the next update?



Hi, thanks for the comments, and yes there will be an update soon, I've put this park on hold for a short while as I am also working on another park.

Re: Park Music and Videos

I was wondering if anyone knew the location of any of the other videos that play in the Nemesis Sub-Terra attraction, I have the shortened queue line one but that is it. I wondered whether the preshow, or show video were uploaded anywhere?

Thanks.

Re: Oblivion

One small improvement I would suggest for Oblivion, is just a general tidy up of the queueline and station. Currently parts of the queueline look really worn down. The 90's TVs need to be replaced and the plants need a good cut down. Also with the station, the outside could do will having its facade...

Re: Malibu Park Resort

Hello everyone, It's been a while since my last big update, and I'm glad to announce there will be one soon! However, my park is not quite ready just yet. So in the meantime I'll leave these faux posters that have appeared in the park over the last couple of weeks. http://i.imgur.com/B1E0n.jpg http:...

Re: What direction should the music of Alton Towers go in

Yes, I must admit listening to Thunder Rock Rally Radio made queuing for Rita a little more bearable as I worked my way through the cattle pen. I just don't like Rita and the Dark Forest's current theme music, its too short and doesn't have enough impact on the area. Once you get past the entrance t...

In all fairness though, even though I would love to see a merlin own brand in park instead of BK, the menu needs to be larger than just 4 things, there is hardly any choice. The...

Re: [Idea] X-Sector : The Activation Party

It would be a Cool If they used it as a viral  marketing video, using sound over and CGI for helicopter, loud music and explosion. But i think it would be a bit expensive for them to make. To be honest, I wouldn't think it would be that expensive. On Sub-Terra, the current video they use befor...

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

the ugly cattle-pen can be removed. I have to agree with this point; at the moment the new cattle-pen queue line has created a bottle neck in the area, and has made the entrance to the area now feel cluttered. The queue line could easily be reworked so it went along a different route. For example, ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Oblivion's station is one of many places in the park, that are visibly rotting, and the GP can see that. Other angles of the station look worse, and up close it simply looks terrible. I agree with the thematic links between Oblivion and Silver Star, and perhaps during this years closed season, Obliv...

Hi, after visiting the park today, I noticed these: http://i.imgur.com/ryVQU.jpg I cannot think what they are used for, this was was located behind 'The Bookworm' It appears to be some kind of mast, I was wondering if any of you people knew what it could possibly be used for. Thanks, Ryan.

Hi everyone, just wondering, does anyone know the name of the songs played in Corner Coffee?
Or if they are not actually songs but royalty free, where I can download them.

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

One thing I always think Sub-Terra lacks is smoke, smoke is one of the best easy effects to use and creates a lot more of an atmosphere. Perhaps a smoke machine placed within the underground section so as when the rows drop, people are plunged into the smoke, then when it rises some of the smoke is ...

Re: Scarefest 2012

I'm hoping this year's Scarefest will be a definite improvement from last years. The lack of scarefest theming around certain areas, and the overuse of horrid white lighting created no atmosphere what so ever. The lighting around the park is a must for improvement. Dark Forest Dark Forest is never d...

Re: Air's extended queueline

I queued up to the top and through the little shelter, on opening weekend. There is little up there and it looked as if that part of the queue hadn't been used in years, perhaps they have decided it looks nicer to park guests walking through the trees, than down a (very steep) slope to the carparks....

Well..

Nevertheless Forbidden Valley itself is suffering rather badly on the speaker front, with most ...
