Ooo very Centre Parcs-ish. Swanky. :D

I would love to see some cabins like those posted above, would add some really character. But that same old question, is their the demand at present?

Make both stations clean and modern, with the addition of the trains being spruced up, then it would be more 'perfect'.

Oh and maybe a track repaint, or at least the supports.

Sounds good. :)

To be fair though, when ever its been busy in the past and i have been, staff always seem to come out in bloom and do their best to reduce ques. Guess when its busy it gives them something to do and time passes quicker.

Alton only gets between 1 and 2 million a year I believe, which isn't much. I belive last year it was more in the region of 2.4 million. Notable ones on there are Disneyland Paris, who get around 8 million a year. That's at least 4 times as many, so shouldn't they charge about a quater of what Alto...

Less offers and lower the entrance fee. So less marketing? And overall a lower gate price makes for a good plan? High Prices and More Offers means more people overall coming on park due to the offers they have seen in papers etc. From AT's POV you can see how well they are actually doing from this ...

I don't think those who pay full price at the gate is actually as low a percentage as we're led to believe. I've heard loads of people this year comment on the £34 they each had to fork out. While i was in the que for tickets with my friends the other week all three groups in front of us payed full...

'I thought the food from one of the outlets at Alton Towers on my last trip was fantastic. We ate at the Courtyard Tavern and BBQ, was fast, relatively cheap as well. Had their Piri Piri chicken salad, was delicious'. That kind of thing you want? You could find more in reviews section as well. :? :D

The spiders bit, all the spiders bounce now and you can hear 'spidery' noises. I sore the bats above you (like the ...
