Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I don't really do merch but I can definitely see myself buying a personalised notebook. £7 isn't terrible. I think a waterpark and wickerman pin might have to happen to

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I think making it an upcharge after 3 years of it being free is a bad idea for publicity. Many of the general public would get quite upset at that.

Re: Project 2020

I'm not entirely sure of the technicalities but if a coaster is listed on a previously approved LTDP, isn't it easier and faster to get planning permission once the time comes to build it? that might suggest planning permission may be later than expected. I also seem to remember them getting some ki...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

For me, I think The Dungeons aren't exactly something that is needed. With the amount of Dungeon attractions all over the country, I just don't see the point in it being introduced at towers. Yes it will be nice to see the history of Alton brought to life in the form of the dungeons but I would hav...

It looks a lot like the new annual pass logo, and the Thorpe logo in general.


That's a fantastic point. It could be a complete rebrand for the park with a new modern logo

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I don’t think it’s possible to give access to PMAPs. There’s just too many people that have them. There wouldn’t be enough slots left or money made.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I agree that its really nothing to be complaining about. The problem will come when the public turns up and gets a shock. I think it will anger some people.

I haven’t said anything negative about others enjoying the ride. Everything I have said is my own personal opinion :) If people enjoy than they enjoy it. I am not the sort of person to hate on someone because they like something I don’t and if it came across like that than I apologise :) You are qu...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I'm sure I've seen that complaint about the car park,  or one very similar on Facebook. I'm not sure how I feel about the car parking charge as it doesn't really affect me with my MAP.  I understand that charges are used to control traffic flow and maintain services, but as Alton isn't really in a ...
