Re: The advantages and disadvantages of SW's

They do currently prevent rides from being copied etc. When they sign contracts with the manufacturers they sometimes say they can't make another for a certain amount of time. I think that was the case with Oblivion... They also introduce trademarks on names and taglines like they did with 'The Smil...

Re: The Fried Chicken Co.

Eaten here twice. Not a bad comment from me! Fantabulous customer service done by great staff plus they always manage to pull my food out from under the counter by magic! Some of the only magic left in the resort! Prices are high though but what do you expect! After all, it is merlin!

Re: The Future of Katanga Canyon...?

I absolutely love Katanga Canyon, probably my most favorite area of the park. In my opinion it's a well themed area, however the space around it is not used to its full potential. I feel the area can be extended one or two ways so there is more space for attractions making it less of a walk through ...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I think they have something on that in the FAQ's saying they will send you vouchers valid for a random time of year and you can use them in that validity space :)

Re: SW8

Alton Towers would definatley go for something tried abd tested but with a twist in my opinion. There are already many B&M winged coasters out therewith many of them being in the merlin entertainments group so it would be a sage investure for Alton Towers. They will only change something to make...

I completely disagree! I think the price is very reasonable, especially compared to the price of tickets for people like Beyonce!

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I personally think Alton Towers will try and get The Smiler open for Fireworks weekend however I think they won't push because this is actually quite serious incident which will reach other news channels/papers soon and might give the park a decreased reputation for safety although they have such a ...

I would really like to see something like Horrible Histories appear somewhere, they could do so much with it, even at Warwick Castle! They could definitely incl...
