Spike, isn't this asking for a little too much?
Ok, I, like anyone, would love to see the park open through this period, but the rides do take time to have their annual maintenance check up, and Alton do open for February half-term as it is!
The rides are definitely a no, but getting a fair in and a fireworks display to bring in the new year would be fantastical!
Just open up Towers Street and the lawns, get a fair in, close off all other areas, open up all the cafe's and shops in Towers Street, get some part-time staff in and thats all you need!
Only floor in that plan is the fireworks and those people beginning with R!
You miss-understand Ryan, I'm talking about opening an area like Forbidden Valley on NYE and NYD for hotel guests only.
In response to annual maintenance: how do Europa, Disney, Universal manage to do it? Universal Studios open 365 days a year.[/quote]
Such places as Disney Land and Universal Studio's will close rides at different times of the year, and I would imagin, have more engineers to hand, therefore getting the job done twice as fast as the likes of Alton Towers!
Yeah, I mis-understood :oops:
