Re: X Sector Refurbishment

The Smiler will have OTSR's for sure and probably yellow from the looks of things..... Oblivion will not be loosing its OTSR's in any way, shape or form. They are iconic to the ride.... But they are in a dismal state ATM hence why they have been mentioned under the list of x-sector work in the staf...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

What would people rather have? A ride which is fully working, complete and themed brilliantly or A ride which will need more theming, breakdowns, unfinished  will need work done to it after it is opened To be honest it will probably have its fair few break downs any way no matter when it opens...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I think the forbidden valley should be spilt into two half's but still be classed as one area for example Nemesis end have a sign saying "you are now entering the forbidden valley-a phanx facility" and air end there should be a sign saying "welcome to the forbidden oasis"  s...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

For adventure land they should theme it to a fairy odd parents land because one its a well known kids show and 2 it stays in the theme of MAGIC which alton towers love too keep to I do agree it would make for a good area, but is it really that well known anymore i remember watching it when was youn...

Re: X Sector Refurbishment

I'm hoping it have more warning lights around the area and at the entrance of X sector a warning to enter at your own risk by use of a big sign or speakers. Brilliant! And they should actually make the smoke effects work on the oblivion hole like they used to so that you can't see into it. Both arm...

Re: Alton Towers 2013 Map

Do you think with the free wi-fi at the park they should be thinking of adding a park map to the app and it could lead you to the ride area you want to get to with GPRS? They could also add more big park maps around the park just in case you ain't got a smart phone. I always feel the park map when ...

Re: Alton Towers: The Lost Back Stories

Th13teen Does it have one or not?  No one seems to know for sure.  I've seen all the construction, all the marketing, and even been on it a few times but I still dont "get it" lol.  Wraiths? I thought it was that a team of people discovered a lost crypt but found out the ho...

I'd like to see adventure land be re teamed to a ice world something which will be so well teamed you won't feel like your at AT a bit like the dark forest just 3x better I'd also like AT to invest in more land to make a "music icon" teamed land which will have a permanent enclosed arena ...

I just hope that the map is better than last years.... ended up binning mine on both visits last year and going on a rampage finding out where everything was... but surely a new map is needed with a new ride addition? yeah because it was.when Th13teen opened the map was updated I think.
