Re: Towers Loving Care

Yeah, hopefully they'll theme parts of it to play in each room like the old Haunted House.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The other explorer rooms would add to the overall theme, which is IIRC it's about an explorer who built the hotel.

Re: Non Rollercoaster Rides

Looking at Merlin right now, it would be very strange seeing them invest millions in a dark ride that wouldn't be as good as anything in Orlando. Merlin also doesn't have the size or money to build and maintain something that big.  I would want to see one in the future but I think it's very unlikel...

Yeah an ITV interview had some footage of a drone going up the lift hill from a while ago.

Re: Non Rollercoaster Rides

I agree with you to be fair but I actually really enjoy the Smiler. A launched indoor coaster would be really cool or a Valhalla style ride would be great, there's space for one where CatCF used to be.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I think as long as nothing unexpected happens during testing, it should open with the park. It was rumoured to have started testing round a bout christmas but we never had proof of it till january IIRC.

I would want to see one in the future but I think it's very unlikely.

Hopefully it's themed to the ride but I don't now what they could do for it.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I don't know what they're called but could they have merchandise that are those things that depending on where you look at them they change what you see. Like a keyring that has your name on it but when you move it a bit or tilt your head it'll spell your name in runes.

As long as they remaster the old advert and play it non-stop in the queue line I'll be happy.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I'd really like to see Galactica have a few nods to nemesis, even something small like a near miss or something that looks like something out of FV.

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

I like the current style of maps but last year's did feel quite empty, mostly due to the large bit showing SW8 construction and that causing there to be quite a long path between MB and GW.

Nemesis isn't even rough yet, I don't feel like there's a need to retrack it for a while now.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

They could still call it Galactica, with all the themeing and stuff done to the ride it would be crazy to take it all back. They could make an Air gate and a Galactica gate and use the old assume the position thing for the Air gate. Merlin could brand it as, "World's first two in one rollercoas...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I think a VR and a non-VR stations would increase throughput, correct me if I'm wrong but could you get two non-VR trains out for each VR train?

Re: Dark ride ideas

Yeah Cloud Cukoo Land needs some work done, it's the most lackluster part of the park, which is a shame as 10 years ago it was great.

Re: SW9

Thanks, I always got confused about rides like Oblivion because it seems to be above the tree line but I'm guessing it's just because X-Sector is on a slope and it's near the bottom.
