I think Thorpe Park actually run these days and let Annual Pass holders in, it'd be nice if Towers did that.


I believe it is Chessington although Thorpe may have started to do these.

Also, the "rehearsel" day would seem more sense and hotel guests seems the best idea. I would love to see 'Where the magic never ends' brought back but it can only bring people say, 'Hang on, this ain't magical innit'. It was a great slogan but I think change is good, although it'll have to be good to beat that simple slogan.

Matt :D

I agree with Marky: 'Where the magic never ends' was a great slogan for the park, fitted and it quite recognised with tourists and the general public. I don't like 'Serious about fun' it just seems a bit bland and BLA if you know what I mean.

As for the early opening, I think maybe they should leave it till the Saturday, especially if it's only for hotel guests. Not many people will know about it and wont book the hotel etc. Also, a Saturday seems like a more sensible and suited day to open.

Notice that ALL of the Tussauds group job websites say serious about fun?

You know, it could just be a recruitment slogan. :rolls:

The 2007 Hotel details have the same "extraordinary" font all over them, but not the actualy slogun. but all the pages are headed with "your...<something>" such as "your world of fun" "your fears conquered" "your exciting getaway"

maybe this new slogun will reflect this somehow?

When trying to book a hotel room on 15th March, rooms come with the theme park tickets suppliment. Does this mean it will be open for Hotel Guests on 16th March?!

That's the caption on a few images on the official AT site, so possibly...

Is that the New Slogan Muggins? - That sounds like something Haven Holidays would come up with! :rolls:

It better not be that. That's awful :P
Almost as bad as Thorpe's 2007 slogan: "Thorpe Park - Let's have some fun!"

How err imaginative!

Just incase you forget why you're spending £32 a head, Thorpe Park and Alton Towers possibly thought it might be an idea to remind you!
Talk about stating the Obvious!!

I thought Alton Towers were supposed to be bringing the magic back to people's visits? Surely restoring the old Slogan would be a start? :rolls:

Let's Have Some Fun?!?! Eeeeww! 'Twisted Pleasure' was so much better, seems like they've a 'quick, think of something more family oriented' 5 second job behind that.

I hope Alton don't go the way of the whole 'Memories' thing again. It was just a huge failure. I'd love for 'extraordinary' to be used somehow.

I don't think (hope) that's THE slogan, just A slogan that they have put on the brochure, as its an introduction to the park. If that's all it is then its a fine slogan, if not then

Hmm... Urm I don't like that at all. Too, I dunno not Alton Towers. More like Oakwood or something.

I liked "Find your extraordinary something"

I failed to see any predominant slogan over the weekend... only one I can see is on a leaflet I picked up at the B&B. On it is the one, 'The fun starts here'. :|

So, what is the slogan??

Sorry to double post..

Matt :D

Alton Towers: "The Fun Starts Here"
Thorpe Park: "Let's Have Some Fun"
Chessington: "The Fun Starts When You Get Here"

Anyone noticing a pattern? :lol:
