All this double posting is going to get me sent to the Dungeon...
Another article, another misconception about the Alton Dungeons. This time it's the Nottingham Post
. The quality of this one is not great, however it seems that they have had access to either a park official or a press release and still come away with the wrong idea of what the attraction will be.
A new misconception, although understandable if you look at the image and nothing else:
While much of the details of the attraction are still under wraps the snapshot does indicate that part of the ride will involve heading out on water in front of the park's famous towers.
Well that is what the image shows, and yes there is water in front of the Towers that has had boats on it in the past.
Again, no indication of additional cost, ability to pre-book, or that its a 45 minute experience. Instead it makes it sound like it's just another new ride, like anything else at the park.
Plus, for theme park reporting giggles:
Many theme park fans have speculated that the new attraction is part of the Dungeon family which already has locations in London, Blackpool, Edinburgh, Warwick and York.
As I say, not great quality reporting, but it looks like they've done some haphazard research and still come away with completely the wrong idea.
Whilst I expect errors in such reporting, they typically have the fundamentals correct. For example: a roller coaster, a new restaurant, or an additional extra like crazy golf. It's this missing fundamentals that is my concern.
