I like the new area name, Mutiny Bay sounds very good and not too generic! And by the sounds of the new Tea Cups, they will hopefully turn out goood! :D With regards to the whole Source issue going on, I'd rather see the plans when Alton Towers officially release them as in not leaked by some fan o...

So these plans havn't gone through or anything yet and are still in the final stages?

If they sound as good as Green.Wing says, I'm sure we're in for something good if they can pull it off!

Excited!!

I find it funny on how on Lastminute.com for the Scarefest tickets they show "On-the-day" price as £15 and their price as £15. Meaning people won't neccessarily buy from them as they can get the same price on the door when they can't really.

I like it. Still got the "magical stars" and purple, and I like the way the Alton Towers overlaps the edge and gives a rounded feel.

I like it. Seems better without the blank arch and I like how the Red 'Arched' part overlaps the outer circle!

Dan, Quantum was down in July when I was there with the school so approx. 12 weeks?!

Tis crazy...

I just can't believe how so many rides can be down at the same time and not be open quicker. :roll:

Sounds quite good. Can see it being popular with the children but what's the betting it'll only take place on weekends/half terms??

Suppose it's all in the name of saving money... :roll:

All baggage storage systems should be like Stealth and X:/No Way Out in reality. I agree. Stealth is the safest on basically and I would like to see many like this even if it does cost more money, if they want Alton Towers customers to be happy and keep bag thefts down, why not install these and ke...

It's a shame that it is like this. I went earlier in August for the day and yes, it was busy but not dirty. Quantum and Samurai were down and Nemesis Inferno was having a lot of problems. What is wrong with it this season? I think it misses its old dispatch music.

Well everyone knew it was going to be Thomas Land. :P Those Attraction signs are quite hard to read but what I can make out of the last one is a Driving School. They've obviously seen the success of AT's Driving School and thought they'd get one. How big is the area going to be? The same size as Ro...

I went there two years ago and it was very good. It has been running since the 10th August till the 1st September in Kings Park, Bournemouth and me and my friends were gonna go but we didn't find the time for it in the end.

They have a Top Scan there now which is apparently very good.

So basically fireworks with Pop music? Lol, was thinking the same. Just a few speakers everywhere playing those sort of songs. I doubt they'd be there unless they are struggling for bookings and therefore want to attract people with these bands. Weren't fireworks scrapped in 2004 due to lack of dem...
