Re: Movie Concepts Based on Rides

I've often thought it would be fun to write a gothic children's story, where squirrel nutty is forced to leave his home in the dark forest because someone disturbed an old crypt, but he doesn't trust the sinister bookworm that's offering all the woodland creatures a better life...  Not sure ho...

Re: Wobble World Height Policy

Alton take their safety of guests very seriously so they would not allow any exceptions however close they are to a restriction. Yes it may sound ridiculous but Alton are strict on this matter. And maybe she couldn't of played in the younger area due to other parents complaining that their children ...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

An Ice Age themed play area maybe? I am sure 20th Century Fox wouldn't mind Surely this would mean extending the contract for at least another 3 years and looking into the future will Ice Age still be around? I don't think they should go down this route for this risk. I'm sure it would of thrived w...

Re: Future of the gardens?

You have got to be kidding?

It's protected, beautiful, popular with older guests ans makes Alton unique. Unless Alton are owned by Six Flags, I can see no development there. This is ridiculous that we're speculating so far into the future.

West Ham or QPR?

Decide people.

I'd rather have West Ham any day and I think they'll just do better.

More Southern teams are in than the North now so let's get some out shall we?

CHELSEA HAVE BEATEN THE GERMANS AT THEIR OWN GAME.

Congrats' they hardly deserved it for the majority of the game, a Di Matteo miracle. Surely the job is his now! Well done Chelsea!

Re: Online Booking Fees Removed - Hurrah!

Merlin? Showing promise?

This was a smart move by Merlin and it's nice to know that with technology online becoming a standard now that there should be no extra booking charge. Nice for some good news in a rollercoaster (if you'll pardon the pun) season.

I'll take some of Merlin's Brew please!

Apparently despite disappearing off the radar for some time this is about to come out. May 22nd according to IGN but they didn't say which country so no idea when it releases here. Keep an eye out for it.


It is presumed just North America.

Re: English Football 2011/2012

Bayern have scored and probably won, they've shown more flair and the edge. They deserved it tbh and I could see them nicking it late.

A bit sad about Blackpool though.

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I do believe that the buldings next to the Nick Buildings are also used for storage, so I'm sure getting rid of some junk that isn't Halloween props (which I'm sure will be there) will occur if the Nick building were to be used. I could easily see it happen for 2014 as the other family product, but ...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I strongly believe that Storybook Land WILL be the 3D area, the Squirrel ride could house a decent small kids coaster paving the way to merge with Adventure Land with the expiring Adventure Land. I can almost guarantee it. With Sonic leaving at the end of this year, this could happen, albeit Alton w...

Re: The Lottery chances increased this evening

My sister did her first tickets conveniently today and I chose my Mum's numbers, good luck all!

Albiet it's still very unlikely. 1 in 10000 first least a grand so we have a long shot across Europe too, but still I should stop being so cynical and cross my fingers!

Predictions for Tomorrow:  Blackpool 2-1 West Ham (AET) Chelsea 1-1 Bayern (Bayern win on penalties) I can't choose between the second game but I see West Ham going into the game with heaps of confidence and Allardyce with mind games from his previous Blackpool job. Blackpool to nick it after a...

Rodgers or Martinez doesn't really fit Liverpool, they should actually try and search for a manager like they did with Hodgson. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18106241 Well someone's bored as Greek football president, then? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18091522 Disappointed at Klasni...

Re: English Football 2011/2012

Giving Martinez a shaky start but may settle in once he makes his mark on the sqaud, I'm sure he'd sign Moses and maybe McCarthy from Wigan. I can only predict that Wigan will crumble upon his possible departure though.

What do the 'Pool fans think of this?
