Re: The smiler opening day

There will probably be a soft opening for MAP holders, The part will be very, very busy tbh and the park will probably close its gates by 11am due to overflow of people so get there very early. These are my thoughts anyway. May I ask what you are basing these thoughts on, as these points seem very ...

Re: What is the real difference between Alton Towers Hotel ad Splash Landings

Splash Landings for the water park as you get free or half price entry to it. Like above Splash Landings is great for kids as there's shows and entertainment for them.

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Re: Future of the Dark Forest

I agree that nothing will happen with the Dark Forest for AGES. But if I could have my way I would give a complete re-theme to a Music clubland kind of thing. Just think where Thirteen goes into the Krypt (obvs it would get a new name) It could Just be an array of lights and mist and LOUD MUSIC!!!!...
