Re: Does the UK need more rollercoasters, or 'experience rides?'

I'd say with technology moving on, mixing rides with experiences such as Sub-Terra and Extremis will probably be copied soon by Drayton and maybe BPB. Full on thrilling flat rides have been lacking recently and making it unique with experiences I believe would contribute to a more popular trend. I c...

Re: English Football 2011/2012

You could tell he would fail with the lack of enthusiasm in his appointment and looking at the success of Steve Kean anyway. That's why we went down with our heads held high... at Championship quality. Not league 1 quality, Wolves will continue to crumble. Mark my word.

Re: English Football 2011/2012

Finally a lengthy Barton ban, he deserves it for all the offended that he's done.

Also Owen Coyle is the 17th most remembered manager in the league. (Woop, woop) Anyone guess the top 3?

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

On the [email protected] Mark did say a bit about IPS and how they have really worked for towers, espeically Ice Age. So I think 2014 or 2015 will certainly see adventure land and storybook land completely re done and made into one area themed around a well known IP. Sonic will most likely stay I think, just ...

What so bad about Rita's queue? Am I the only one that doesn't mind it?

And it is a shame about that queue, at least its in he shade.


Simply, Rita's is not in the shade and it's crowded, narrow and sweaty. We could go on for hours... always on a non-Alton topic we end back onto Alton.

Re: PortAventura 2012: "Shambhala" B&M Mega Coaster

The queue is a mess. My friend's taking a visit at the moment and I can only imagine he's currently in a sweaty queueline. I could cope with Rita's cattlepen being worse, but for a hot country and if that was in England, there would be hundreds of complaints. That is a disgrace to such a promising r...

Welcome all... just be wary of The Tavern... don't believe the stories about the landlord. Other than that enjoy your new life inside our shell!

Re: Alt-on Towers (What if?)

I always wonder if Terry's current improvements should of been ready on opening day or were concepted later on due to lack of depth to the ride.


So what if Terry was completed on opening day?

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I can see adventure land and storybook land being re-themed into 1 big area. Personally i would Renew the contract with SEGA. and re-theme both storybook land and adventure land to a Sonic the hedgehog IP area. this will mean new sonic related rides. For CCL i can see the area being re done in 2016...

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

Another strangly scary moment is the duck in the flume, that doesn't seem to be working this year It wasn't working back in August but was then in October, I think it's just a case of turning it on and off and timing. I cannot confirm if I've seen it this season though. I'm sure it's there, could a...

A interesting survey, but I don't know how "local" local meant but a 50 minute drive isn't too bad... but not local I guess. I also think that Cadbury World could go much further with the brand that they have, little advertising across media and not much star appeal makes it a popular but ...

I would like them to reopen the tea room that was not far walk away from the dark forest. I'm sorry to say this but the ruins and gardens will still be here after Alton Towers has gone. As much as I'd love to see that happen, from a business perspective with it being worth open for profit margin. I...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

An attraction in the Nick building area would be a good idea. Either moving the Frog Hopper to a different part of CCL or removing it all together (as it only attracts a crowd 3 minutes long) would free up some construction area. As for IP's, a Mini Charlie ride would only work if the main ride sta...
