I too wondered how exactly it was close to Nemesis and Oblivion, close in what relation? Closer than China? yes, close as in the same area of the park, erm no.
The article on a whole is very confusing, I believe this quote:
"The Resort's award-winning conference centre caters for all occasions and we aim to offer a unique, creative environment for conferences, as well as traditional corporate packages," said Dominique Sidley, head of corporate events and trade sales at the Alton Towers Resort.
They actually mean the conference centre, obviously not Sharbait Reef, 200 people in there Sharkbait Reef...no thanks.
I believe (from looking at the picture) they needed to extend the story and say that Sharkbait can be hired privately for functions and apparently a meal can be served in there.
It does beg the question though can SBR be hired? Surley as its a park attraction it cant be closed during park hours so it would have to be after park close? And if this is the case why isnt it mentioned on the Alton corporate site?
I have more questions than when I started.
