Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

If another IP area is added it will no longer be my favourite park.

Re: Towers Loving Care

I was also there yesterday. Nemesis looks better than it did in '94 and Hex was also very atmospheric with all effects working well. Other little things across the park were noticeable. Driving School wasn't bad but it's a shame it's in such a now terrible area. Also the bubble machine wasn't workin...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

What on earth is Nev and Dr Chris? That mean anything to anyone? There's a sign, new I think, in the front window of Duel that says something about a Nev and Dr Chris (if I remember right). Then in the wonky room the building blocks on the floor now spell out NEV. Seemed a bit unusual to me. Why did...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

It's pretty poor for them to close for 4 months and then announce on opening day that their number one ride is unavailable for an "ongoing maintenance program".

Re: Towers Loving Care

Just a thought. With the 2017 map stating SW8 will be in GW, and now that Duel will be receiving TLC next closed season, could this point towards SW8 actually being in GW? Just thinking that it's not unusual for a neighbouring attraction to receive a refurb before a new one opens (a la Oblivion rep...

Re: Towers Loving Care

Duel has always been in such a terrible state and yet it's really important to me, so glad to see this and that there's more to come. Means it should be around for a while longer (though arguably Ice Age could deflate that theory)

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The fact that the Galactica background remains certainly suggests to me that whatever this is concerns Galactica above others.

Re: Colossus

The first time I went on Colossus (and knew nothing about Thorpe Park) I came home and researched when it was built and literally could not believe it hadn't been around for decades and decades!

Possibly. This is being debated over on the General Discussions.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

My only other suggestion as to what it could be is another ride battle type thingy, like that Whirled Cup of Rides and that other thing from a few years ago where they plastered tacky signs all over ride entrances.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

If this does turn out to be 'Wicker Man' themed I don't think it will be an IP as such, more just inspired by the Pagan ritual. I don't think an IP for a rollercoaster is necessary to generate significant interest in the attraction from Merlin's perspective. Also, if it was an IP, it would be eithe...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

That sounds pretty cool actually! It would be nice to have such a quirky unique area for kids. Only problem is, Galactica will then feel even more out of place!

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

CCL currently looks a lot like CBeebies with its bright crazy colour scheme. I think it would have been much better to simplify it by just having it all pink and blue perhaps (it looks kind of like that on the new map). Unfortunately, they had the opportunity to repaint the theatre however they like...
