Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Its probably teasing the opening as they could have 19th-Smiler 20th-13 21st-Rita 22nd-Blivvy 23rd-Nemmy and 24th-all of the past 5 (+Galactica background) on the same image saying "OPENING TOMORROW!!!" Or something.

Trip to AT 25th March

If all goes to plan (not gonna happen where trains are concerned) I should arrive at Uttoxeter train station at 8:06AM, how long will a taxi take to get to AT?
I'm trying to make ERT!

Also roughly how busy will it be, will Hex be overcrowded and how many power cuts should I expect?

Re: The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure - 2017

Personally, I do quite like the ride because it does make you feel like you are directly inside the book. However, I am a bit confused with the ride storyline because the audio from the video story sounded very different to the book but it may have been due to poor audio videoing quality. Does anyo...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I hope its not a wicker man theme as while it sounds interesting it too dark for something so close to the kids area, and if you were going to say "it might not be dark" to that I say...MERLIN! I think a GW theme could work and personally I hope they do as that would make it lightly to get...

Re: Drayton Manor

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

In my mind, this smiler VR thing can go only 2 ways...both of them ending with an egg being launched at Merlin's face to a soundtrack of self indulgent laughter as they fail to learn anything and continue to add more and more... Sorry I got a bit carried away there! In my mind it will be ether a rea...

Re: The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure - 2017

And the 1st room (the blank book) looks awful but to be honest it looks very good despite its many flaws! My main issue with it is the ride itself, in bubbleworks it was designed for spinning boats but the gruffalo's theming is designed for normal boats (like Charlie's) but with the spinning boats i...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Anyone want to take bets on when they will close it permanently? (Its happened to saw, and let's be honest they have made up there mind to perma close IaC!)
And what actor-led attraction will they stupidly replace it with?

Re: Chessington - The Past

I'm quite bitter about the wild wood as I always wanted to see the inside of the Transylvanian Burger Kitchen, can anyone post a pic of what it looked like inside as Transylvania and what it looks like now?

Re: The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure - 2017

It looks like CatCF with bigger models, and I fail to see why it had to take the best themed area down with it too!
Its also an utter mess as far as narrative is concerned.
And the snake advertising the themed rooms is wrong...that everything?

It looks very good and I can't wait to ride it!

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I hope they don't replace it for at least 8 years as they have just refurbished it and with a bit of work it could be quite good, and nothing will anger me more than finding they refurbished it for nothing using there Merlin grant (gold dust) that could have gone on new Haunted Hollow theming or som...

Re: Towers Loving Care

Don't forget to mention the "TLC" in feed back this year so the out of touch apes at Merlin can see that it makes people spend more money...?
It makes sense to them so go with it!

Also I like what they did to cbeebies land...I'll give it until opening day...

After seeing those pictures, I'm quite excited for opening day.

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Do you think realistically it will get back to 2008-2014 standards in 2018 because I genuinely can't tell at this point! As far as I'm concerned, if it doesn't get back to that standard by 2018 then (in my opinion) thinking it will improve is stupid but since I am very much disenfranchised on this i...
