Re: What will they take away from the park in the next 5 years?

Oh, okay, we could just theme the ride on something that has nothing to do with the area it's in so it sticks out like a sore thumb. That would be a great idea :clap: ! Oh, and while we're at it, lets paint oblivion bright pink!

Re: C&TCF: Should it stay or should it go?

I understand the ride is aimed at kids (3-10 roughly) who won't yet be able to understand C&TCF or even read or write, but the Toyland Tours was magical and the music was catchy. The new ride looks like they filled a warehouse with cheap memorabilia and stuck a simulator at the back of it.

Re: Black Hole 3

I'd love the black hole tent to have a futuristic eurofighter which is compact, quick and has a high throughput as that would be cost effective for Merlin penny-pincher's and it would deffinetly satisfy the general public. Or something like Lynet which would be very similar (but probably without inv...

Re: Black Hole 3

What about a roller coaster with a small launch. Obviously not as fast as Rita (45mph - or +) but it could have a fast acceleration to make up for it. They could theme the ride on a secret test being carried out to create a wormhole into the future. The launch could take place in a tunnel with red r...

Re: New Flat Ride For Dark Forest - IDEA.

Good idea! That's one way the park could make a link between their two roller coasters. At the moment they don't mix very well (IMO) but a flat that's new to the UK like this could just make this my new favourite area (maybe it'll be just as good as FV but I doubt it or anything will ever be better)...

C&TCF: Should it stay or should it go?

Okay, it hasn't had long at the park but I feel the latest dark ride is really terrible. The idea is great but the park hasn't done it justice. With little to see on the actual boat ride itself and nothing more than a couple of cartoons for the finale, I really think it should be gotten rid of. I wa...

Re: Air Tunnel

concrete #-o I like the moving floor it looks cool and makes a good sound as it moves up and down. This will hurt more than the removal of the Corkscrew lol.

Seriously Alton [-X

Re: What will they take away from the park in the next 5 years?

I'm not sure the flume would be completely removed as the area surrounding it is protected so it would be difficult to fit something in its place or get permission for a new ride there. I'd prefer it if the flume was re-themed into something that fits in with Mutiny Bay. What about new pirate ship b...

Re: The Ultimate Fireworks: 5-7 November 2010

I have a good idea. Fit one of the rooms in the towers out with some chairs and an electric heater and give the VIP's some sweets and crisps and a goody bag each! :lol:

Re: New Water Coaster 2012

I think they could create a small entrance into the park at Forbidden Valley for Annual Pass holders and those who are staying at the hotels to get onto the big thrill rides faster. This would provide an extra incentive for people to book a room in one of the hotels or purchase a Merlin or Alton Tow...
