What is Your Favourite Advert?

Tue Oct 30, 2012 6:22 pm

Pretty Simple one... What is Your Most loved Advert????

With alot of Conversation at the minute revolving around SW7 developemtns, talk of past adverts has sprung up every now and then on the fails and wins from Alton over the years with people wondering what will come in the next few months.

I've included a mix of all the rides i could think of, some of the Area and Resort features too... But i bet i've missed some out so i've included an option for "other" aswell.

Some of the videos i've picked have several different offerings so just as a reminder i've left a link to all the vid's in the Poll  :O and i've included 2 voting options so you can pick your Favourite Ride Ad & your favourite Area/Resort Ad.

Happy Voting!!!

For me it has to be Hex. Love that advert. The way it twists round and the voice on it. ''A tale with a twist'' Oh the irony  :lol:

EDIT: For the first time saw Submission advert, completely rubbish.  :|

Mine would have to be th13teen, even though it did mislead us! It was brilliant, creepy and just great! It had no reference to the cartoon like alton towers village which is just werid a too child like.  It's was just great! I only wish they did the N:ST and the smiler adverts were like that not the usual, cheesy alton adverts which they did end up doing!

But thorpe park make the best ones! Anyway that's my favourite :D

Regardless of how crap Thirteen was, the advert for it is amazing. Totally overhyped ride, but the advert itself is great and freaky.

I love all the one ( mainly the older ones ) that don't have all the cartoon village rubbish! I like it when they only show the ride and not a happy, weird village at the same time. it take away from the theme of the ride, for example due to their beginnings N:ST and The smiler looked far to.... happy.
that beginning is ok on the kids rides like the Ice age advert but just not on the Roller casters! That's why i voted th13teen such an AMAZING advert, yes it over sold the ride but because it was so amazing, I JUST WISH EVERY RID HAD A MARKETING TEAM LIKE THAT! :D i 'M SO DISAPPOINTING WITH THE SMILER, HAHA :)
i just hate the cartoon thing at the start! can you tell ;)

ahh rant over ;)

From a marketing POV it has to be Rita. As in the best Alton Towers Ride ever creative. From a marketing prospective it portrayed a generally poor layout ride into a particularly exciting proposition. Plus I looked the whole personification or Rita

Creatively Oblivion. That image of what is a hell bound ride car is imprinted on my mind. Definitely did a right job of promoting the sheer terror of the ride.

Haha, I voted Thirteen as I thought that was the best done advert, and one I remember, it seems I wasn't alone!

It may not be the best ride at all...

The Air advert is good but it blows it so far out of realism, personally I don't like that...

Just love the Air one! You can almost feel like your on the ride when you see it...really captured it well and always makes me want to go to AT.

That said though, The Smiler advert is pretty phenomenal...
