Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

I don’t think they will have a Dungeon, because the London Dungeon is nearby.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

I would like to see at least 3 new flat rides. One in Forbidden Valley, one in X Sector, and one in Dark Forest. And some removals and rethemes. FV flat ride-Ripsaw’s former site. Maybe a Huss Breakdance like Dynamo, or another, newer Huss Top Spin, and theme it to the Nemesis monster/the Phalanx.  ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

From what I heard, they are doing “extended maintenance” on Enterprise, and is set to reopen in June.

Re: Heritage

I really like the Towers and the Gardens. They are historic and without them, the theme park would have never been built!
The Gardens are a great place to relax during a busy day, too.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

That’s good. I never liked the VR, so this is a good improvement. I wish they would change it back to Air, because I liked Air’s branding better.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

They were testing the rapids yesterday, but still not open due to the ride still being in the hands of the tech staff. They are hoping for the ride to be up and running next month and also I've heard from two different sources (but don't hold me to that) that they are planning to turn back on the w...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

If you look closely on the map, the monorail station is in it's original colours, and not the green colouring.

I’m impressed, it looks really colourful and unique! Well done Merlin, if only all your investments were as well themed as this!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I kind of like this Dungeon. It looks like MMM put a lot of effort into theming this attraction in the space of 6 months.
However, I am slightly disappointed they didn't make it into a new Toyland Tours, or something that fitted into the CCL area.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I never considered that they would add the restaurants later on. And I thought AT dungeon was supposed to be in the "The Towers" area, not DF.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

If the VR was removed, that would be great news! I never was a fan of the whole VR idea, so I wouldn’t miss it anyway. And VR removal would speed up the queues, too. It’s a win-win!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I kinda like this years map mainly because they put the rollercoaster logos on. However, I don’t like the fact the restaurants aren’t on.

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

That sounds like a great idea for a land! It would appeal to the 6-12 yrs market well, and revive that area of the park. Just add the Dungeon and the Burger Kitchen (with a refurbishment) to the Towers area, and that would sort out any theming problems. Only problem, would the Ferris Wheel go above ...

I don’t think it will move to Thorpe Park. I think it will be sold and then probably never seen again.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m really excited what they’ll do to improve Splash Landings. Perhaps they might give it a refurb, or a general spruce up.
Who knows with Merlin.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

If they are a separate ride, that would be great! The park needs more flat rides, so this could be a brilliant addition to the park! They might be junior drop towers, but they are still flat rides nonetheless. I don’t think they’ll go in Cbeebies Land, that area of the park has plenty of flat rides....
