Just got back from my Saturday Night stop over in Splash landings and a Sunday in the Waterpark
I think the fireworks were good but not great (still the best i have been too thoiugh) my partner and her children think it was awesome
Like many people have said it lacks a story/theme
To be fair, if you were disappointed with Alton's fireworks, you're not going to be satisfied with any display. I honestly think that, at times, people expect a little too much from AT.
Have you seen the shows they did between 1990 and 2006?
I have been to every display at Alton Towers since 1998 and they dont make them like they used to ...... damn that makes me sound old.
I would have to say i enjoyed the following...
1998 - Good Vs Evil..... the oblivion themed display pyrotechnics are awesome
2000/1999 - The millenium theme where big ben stopped and we had to cheer to enter the new millenium.
2002 - The Elements battle (AIR Theme) the Water theme with the face in the lake spay was immense
2205?? - i think this was the Electric Towers one but i may be wrong?? - The conductor going through the music with him on a big screen was also good.
There was a slight theme in 2010 with the Th13teen opening to the fireworks ...
The last 2 displays have just felt like fieworks and music (some music not that good) but i will say this when the last track kicks in with In The Hall Of The Mountain King the goosebumps do get going and the Magic is back.
sad thing is now the two words i hate to speak and have to mention its
