Nope, they remained planes! Very badly painted planes!

Alton Towers should take a trip to the Family/Junior ride department of the Zamperla Supermarket. If a cheapo custom themed Zamperla is good enough for Disney then it's good enough for Alton Towers!

It's amazing what you can do with a cheap Zamperla, when themed:

Cars Race Rally @ DLP:

Diesel's Locomotion Mayhem @ Drayton Manor:
Image

Heave Ho @ Alton Towers:
Image

London Bus @ Europa-Park:
Image

Crazy Taxi @ Europa-Park:
Image

At any rate, all the above - CHEAP rides - all look better than Bouncing Bugs etc. So I am glad it's going!

:D

(actually, I secretly love themed Zamperla rides. The best thing about them is that Adults can ride too, unlike Bouncing Bugs etc.)

Just an idea, couldn't they open up Coaster Corner and have a junior-coaster in there along with another cheap children's flat. :D

I've got to admit, Cloud Cuckoo land needs a couple more small flats.

Even if it's just like the funfair area at Gullivers World.

There's a few things confirmed there. The UG Swinger is Twirling Toadstool and the Gallopers Carousel has kept the same name. Also the play area is Wobble World. That is all. I hope this hasnt been posted before.

It'd be 208 before 209 :P As far as I'm aware the 207 is staying around for a while yet :P

TBH I don't really quite see what has or will change about Cred Street?

It seems to me that Alton Towers are marketing an area that has been at the park for many years as new just because of a few name changes and a relocated ride? :|

I don't see what is actually NEW about the area?

Repaint and refurbishement of everything (minus charlie and driving school) new names, new look, new theme, new show, ties everything together. Even if its not a long way off cred street, its not cred street so id say that classes as new.
