Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

I have read all of David Walliams’ children books, and so have a more informed idea about the new land. In the shop they could sell Bumfresh toilet roll (Billionare Boy) plush rats (Ratburger) products by “Mummy” (Demon Dentist) plush owls (Awful Auntie) toy aeroplanes (Grandpa’s Great Escape) and c...

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

I’m hyped for this area. I think this is a good move on Alton Towers’ part, mainly due to because David Walliams’ children’s books are very popular, and that they have a reason to attract the 7-10yrs crowd. Yes, it is another IP but at least it’s a good one that’ll be popular with kids.

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

If they absolutely have to incorporate an IP into CCL, they should theme it to Horrible Histories. I would prefer a new idea, but knowing Merlin, it will be an IP.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Based on personal observation, I think that Darkest Depths is going to be darker in tone (no pun intended) because HOM had a logo that was very childish and fun, and the Darkest Depths logo is a little bit more sinister, more realistic. If it was designed for young children, the logo would have been...

Re: The Future of Spinball Whizzer and Adventure Land

Personally, I think Forbidden Valley has two different sub-areas. The area themed around the Phalanx, which has Nemesis, Nemesis Sub Terra (I know it’s SBNO, but it might come back one day) and The Blade. The other area is themed to space exploration, which includes Galactica.

Re: The Future of Spinball Whizzer and Adventure Land

I don’t think Spinball Whizzer could be themed into Forbidden Valley’s aesthetic. It wouldn’t fit into the area, even with theming.

Re: Alton towers dungeon stag do

I’ve heard somewhere that you can send embarrassing and/or funny stories in for the Judge to read out. If you want to know more about this, go on the Dungeons website.

At least he said ‘inversions’ instead of ‘loops’ or ‘twists’ or ‘upside down bits’.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m pleased that the ride is now open, and that it has a MOJ theme! The only problem with it is that they could have painted it yellow and black, which is the Smiler’s colour scheme.

Re: Merlin General Discussion - New Owners agreed in £4.8bn deal

Is Merlin going to be absorbed into the KIRKBI brand, or will it still be called Merlin?

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I do think that the removal of House of Monsters is possibly for a CCL Retheme (with an IP). Maybe not David Walliams, but I'd like to see something original or in terms of IP's, something like Aardman Animation or Doctor Who (BBC connection with Cbeebies Land) or another IP I would love to see a D...

Re: Towers Loving Care

I like those new signs because they fit in well with the area. However, it says 14 LOOPS, not inversions.
