Alton Towers Easter Eggs

Wed Apr 02, 2014 12:07 pm

Sorry if this has already been posted but I was wondering if there were any Easter eggs (hidden jokes or little hints to past/present rides) hidden around the park.

There are hidden 'nods' to past code names for rides and past rides. I can't off the top of my head think of many but on the smiler it SW7 painted on the outside of the ride now to the normal jo public it means nothing but to a geek its a nice little nod to the code name for the ride so yes there are various things you just have to spot them :P

I think Nemesis has SW3 somewhere in the Nemesis kitchen, not seen it myself yet, but have heard it's there :D

I know that Oblivion has SW4 on one of the supports, and Air has SW5…somewhere xD

I think nemesis sw3 is hidden in the kitchen now since they changed it or it might be in the middle of the Island next to the turn

At the entrance to KC, there's a sign saying "Forbidden Valley this way".
If you look on the other-side of the sign, this' what you'll see:

I saw an Aqualand sign on an abandoned building in the Rapids queue. I'll try and find a pic.

Not a visual one, but the Toyland Tours theme music was used for Carnival of Screams' soundtrack, with added creepiness.

On the wall next to the SRQ (under the 13th inversion)

It says SW7 in big yellow lettering, you can't miss it.

Imagine getting in Nemesis queue line. Follow it down until you get to the bridge next to the loop, and above the tunnel straight after the loop. As the queue curves round to the left and towards the stairs, it's just to the right, almost directly under the station.

Hope this helps :)

This picture was taken back in 2012 so not sure if that sign is still there.

This might be common knowledge to most of us but:
The pizza/pasta restaurant near rapids/mine train often plays the old theme to katanga canyon inside the restaurant, I'm sure there are other old tunes they play but i can't remember them off the top of my head.

Does anyone know what the island on nemesis just before the zero-g loop has on it because it looks like it has a structure on it.
