Monorail: 2008/9 Train Re-Themes

Tue Sep 21, 2004 2:44 pm

I've worked on the monorail all summer this season, and yes it does get a little bit dull, and i was just wondering, what would you lot like to see changed about it if you could? :-k

TBH I have no problems with the monorail, it does it's job which is moves people from the car parks to the entrance. If it's not broke, don't fix it.

I like it, it goes over the right places in the park, its a really good build up to your day, gets you really excited. And it seems to be mostly realiable! :D

Personally one day id like the monorail to be re-routed to go around the 'outside' of the park instead of travelling through it.

I'd like to see the carridges replaced or washed, when I was last there the carridges were turing green where they have the material covering the joints between them. The carridges also seem a bit dated in the design.

It runs, it does it job - yes, but things can always be improved on.

The monorails cars repainted blue with alton towers logos on it inside new modern seats maybe a little tv screen that plays all old new alton adds in each car.

I like the music in the monerail....it sets the atmosphere for the day,and reminds you of you day when you leave.

i think they should get brand new trains because the stuff that you will have to do to refurbish will cost about as much as a new train because i think the ones they have now shake about to much and thats one of the things that shows age

They should completely replace them with modern ones.Yeah! big purple trains to go with Alton logo's colour scheme! :lol:
The idea of screens inside the train wud b good.
The screen cud compare what alton use to be like and then what it is now instead of what this season has to surprise you with.
the trains shouldnt have materialed seats because if its been raining and you sit down they get damp.
Less ricketyness and more comfort.At least the money wud b put to good use insted of jus putting better seats in the train cus eventually soon they will need to replace the trains.as people say they r going out of their style.so retro lol :o The station is kool tho.Nothing to worry about there

I think everything about the monarail is alright but what i would change is, add an extra bit of track so guests can use the monarail all around the park instead of using the very unreliable cable cars.

umm... not really. I would say the sky ride is just as reliable as the monorail... If I remember correctly at this point last season there had been a crash on the monorail.

And a 200ft high monorail? the locals would love that.
Edwardo..... move me!
