Planning applications have been submitted online regarding a retheme/refurbishment of the Farmyard next year. The applications can be viewed publicly here.

The most striking elements of the plan consist of a modified tractor ride layout, additional theming being added to Riverbank Eye Spy and an extension/retheme to Berry Bish Bash.

I think Nintendo Land with new rides based on Nintendo Games like Mario would be a good choice.

It opened in 2007, so it's not exactly that young but nor is it very old either. It wasn't a major addition and it's being replaced by some form of playground or another, so it's hardly a huge loss.

Good call on posting this

The Marquee and Green looks like it has a stage in it or am I completely mislead?

It's an interesting plan, it seems it's purely going to rely on some form of IP to sell it as new, as there isn't any new attractions included (as yet) and the letter states details have been excluded with permission on the grounds of commercial sensitivity. Though, one of the 'characters' will be quite large, something like 6m wide x 9m long and 3m tall...

This makes sense that it could be something water based , they are removing something in the dung heap so what about a water play playground like those play grounds with fountains coming out of the ground and stuff. I am not sure if this is right or not but I hope this area is magical and original :)

Or Maybe it will be a little bit like Duplo Splash Valley and Legoaland?

Remember the Shrek re-theme speculated for Storybook Land in 2012? It will probably be a Shrek theme...but by god they already killed CCL with Ice Age. I will be deppressed if they kill this area with Shrek.
I was going to have a pic of Hobs Pit but I forgot how to make pics show up :(

I personally would not like to see this happen, I just think that better opportunity's are available. I'm not hitting you down just would not like to see the park do this :)

In my opinion a CBBC Land would be a really good idea! I think it will bring something that other Theme Parks across the country don't have! :D And plus it would be really awesome to ride a Dumping Ground ride as I love The Dumping Ground and Alton Towers! What if we combine the two? It would just be awesome for me! :D

Are the 'farm' areas just relating to development on these areas which were once a farm or are they indeed bringing back more animals to the park?!  [-o<
If so I can see an IP of Sean the Sheep fitting in well, or a non-IP development, however the retheme of the tractors goes against this.

The area on the ice tent feels like it will have a completely separate festival theme however. Perhaps for more events similar to the concerts Alton have held before and maybe some new live entertainment. I'm guessing activity areas are midway attractions and stalls?

Any idea what back of house means? is it just staff only areas?

I'm really trying but I still haven't found the changing rooms - I was thinking if they're not for public they could be for a stage e.g. because of costume changes etc.

The shortest lived attraction was the Space Boat. it was situated next to the entrance to Katanga Canyon. It was installed in 1983 and removed at the end of the season due to it's height.

I fully disagree with you here, Ice Age was a fantastic addition, what else are you going to go to CCL for?

Charlie - Worst ride in the park
Frog hopper and Driving school are for anyone under 1.4
The other other decent attraction is Twirling Toadstools
