Whilst I'm not disagreeing with the CCL redevelopment idea (it makes a lot of sense), it could be a point that with House of Monsters being the same style of attraction as The Dungeon, the decision might've been made to axe it so that area wasn't overflowing with Dungeonesque attractions.

I wouldn't call it low budget. Having done a lot of Dungeons attractions, it is comparable to a lot of them. London obviously has a lot more, but that is the signature attraction.

I mean more in terms of the construction / set up of the attraction. I can’t really compare the Alton Towers Dungeon to any of the other dungeons though – they may all be built / set up in a similar way.

I do think that the removal of House of Monsters is possibly for a CCL Retheme (with an IP). Maybe not David Walliams, but I'd like to see something original or in terms of IP's, something like Aardman Animation or Doctor Who (BBC connection with Cbeebies Land) or another IP

Maybe they'll do something with the Nickelodeon Outta Control building and combine it with buildings next to it...if it's a storage building, maybe build a new storage site. Also, I think that Ice Age 4D was originally closed for future development, so something is definitely up with that

I would love to see a Doctor Who area at AT! A land based on one of my favourite TV shows, in my favourite theme park, would be amazing! Weirdly, I’ve been thinking about a Doctor Who land at the proposed London Resort. But I don’t want AT to become BBC Land. That’s the only negative thing I have against this idea.
Nemmy and Icon are overrated.

I could be underestimating it’s popularity, but I don’t think a  Doctor Who themed area would be a very wise investment.

Imagine if someone at Towers is reading this and see Doctor Who Land and think "We've got our 2020 project" lol

As much as I love Doctor Who, I'd hate to see an area based around the series at Alton. It wouldn't feel right for Alton.

That would would be amazeballs if they made a Doctor Who area, it's something I've thought about for a few years now. 
In my mind, I thought it would be lit if they moved Spinball to there, add speakers and play the Who theme round the track and use the old 3D cinema with a short Who film would fill out the area so well making a good family area. Also the potential for Doctor Who horror mazes are endless; Daleks, Weeping Angel, Silence take your pick.
I'd love for this to happen but I think the IP for Who might be high and it seems like since The Dungeons are there then that theming is going to spread to make a giant land from there to Th13teen.

A big themed area stretching from the Dungeons to Th13teen would be great. Doctor Who Land with that BBC IP connection is available (especially with CBeebies already in).

I think a Horrible Histories area would fit in well.  You have the Dungeon already based on funny gory history so HH would work well.  Yes it's BBC but not a big well known BBC brand like Doctor Who and many will know the books more than the TV programme.

That would be amazing! A Horrible Histories area is perfect to incorporate the Towers, Hex and The Dungeons into this area, as well as retheming CCL.
