Closing the skyride doesn't make sense either. Just saying ;)

Very much looking forward to the changes in store. Can't wait to see what the actors are used for.

I wish the team behind Sub Terra all the best in creating an experience the park can be proud of!

I went on Sub Terra 1.5 a couple of weeks ago - and I'm sorry, but I do actually quite enjoy it. :P The changes that had been made since opening weekend were noticeable. I love the video in the pre-show room now, the Nemesis monster rising up from the ground makes me chuckle. :D And I finally 'got' what it was all about! It's not the most imaginative story ever, but it doesn't matter, because it's better than NO story! *cough* Th13teen *cough*

I also got leg-ticklers, and the egg hatched as well, which was just lovely.

So, I'm VERY excited to see what's in store after the closure! This has got to be unprecedented, hasn't it? Actually closing a new attraction in its first months, to improve the experience? V. impressed. :)

I LIKE IT.

Yeah, I noticed these at the start of the month, they look great! I couldn't see them for sale in TT though, only the Unit

Its all very exciting! Im on park with my family next Saturday so I hope its open then and I hope to see some good improvements. I hope the actors are used more than just standing in the queue line shouting at people.

Maybe we will see another one of Merlins favourite shipping containers added to the ride?

I've not been more excited about re-visiting Alton to re-ride a new attraction in years.

I'm actually craving it and considering another trip down soon to have a good 5+ goes on Terry. I fell in love with it a few weeks ago and can't wait to see what's being improved on.  :D

I don't know if anyone's noticed, but the Alton Towers' Official Website, has been updated about Sub Terra's closure...

Please note- Nemesis Sub-Terra will be unavailable from 20th-25th May due to essential maintenance


So it's defiantly going ahead... *Excited Stevie*

:D

djtruefitt as a shipping container appeared at merlin studios this week and has been painted in what I believe to be sub terra colours I think you are correct!

I am very excited about the changes and impressed they are going back to the ride to improve it. I hope its going to be good as they deserve it to be.

Shipping container could either be a shop, ORP stall or (hopefully) an extended post-show after the second lifts?

If I have heard correctly, the shipping container will be a Picsolve photo kiosk, however I could be wrong. :)

Siralgenon you have heard wrong.  No ORP is planned to be installed.  The shipping container is for sub terra and I know what for but I'm not saying what as that would give too much away, safe to say though it isn't ORP and a shop already exists

Hang on... "sub terra colours"? I thought Sub Terra was themed to be "shipping container green", no?

If you can't say don't say anything, generally people just assume you don't know anyway. We have had so many "i know something you don't know but can't say" posts over the last 8 years that turn out to be nothing that they are rarely trusted. Those who may know something but can't say don't, to avoid the negative response it gets.

Also if your staff please note Towers watch these forums, you take your own risks posting any details.

Dormiens Dave it's the fact that I'm staff I'm being cautious, I've said enough to help you without directly saying what it is, I'm sure from what I've said you can figure it out! I couldn't really care whether pele believe me or not, it's up to them, I know what I know.
To reiterate, there's no ORP being added and a shop already exists, that only really leaves one other option for the container to be! I'm sure you can work it out! ;)

So long as you are aware of where Alton Towers stand on staff posting on these forums then you may post as you wish.

As for the shipping container, its more likely to be associated with the experience than a photo-sales point. But in a week we will see i am sure.
