Retheme Charlie and maybe extend the ride. Use the simulator somewhere else on the park or sell it.

Bring back the corkscrew because I never got to ride it (although I've been on the one at Flamingo Land) and I miss the sound of its lifthill :P

New attraction should be a replacement COASTER for the Black Hole next year like they said!

That's my go done :D

Relocate ripsaw to the dark forest to even out flat ride numbers.

Bring back toyland tours with the same or similar original theming but put the ride in a different part of the park and maybe with a different layout.

Black hole tent for 2012 development.

I'd retheme The Flume to a pirate theme, with a complete overhaul and increase of the last drop, a cutting down of the forest section, and extensive theming throughout.

I'd bring back the park railway, just because it would be such a charming and soulful addition to the park's lineup, and would also vastly help improve the offerings to families, currently lacking.

I'd add in an incredibly themed MACK YoungStar or Gerstlauer junior coaster on the Beastie site and the surrounding area. It'd include epic on-board audio, and a dark ride section like LegoLand's Dragon. I'd theme it as the Flight of Icarus, with the dark ride telling the story, lifthill representing his ascent towards the son and the coaster section his dramatic fall.

Relocate Th13teen to CCL. Read my first post on that page to understand what I am getting at.

I'd go for the Park Railway like Sam said. Railways are awesome and they are even more awesome when they are smaller. I used to love the one at American Adventure I think all parks should have one. They are fun for kids and adults and offer an experience you can't get anywhere else being pulled by an old steam engine with open carriages.

Tricky. I'd like to see an attraction for the Black Hole tent and an overhaul of X-Sector cleaning the area adding new theming and making it look like a government research base stick a few tanks in there high fences, containers, strange equipment etc. Then again I'd like to see a new flat added in the Dark Forest I'd also like to see a few replacement flats.

1. Stop the constant money grabbing and think about the guests experience.

2. Keep rides, park and resort for that matter, maintained and looking as they should.

3. Add more indoor attractions to the park.

1. Make Air look like its concept art. These one's before anyone asks but instead of the first two make it more like the adverts. I know it's not going to happen and if I was in charge it would be one of the last things I'd do. But Air deserves its full theme and for me it’s the only reason I can’t rate it as my top ride, yes even above Nemesis.

2. Do something with the Black Hole Tent. X-Sector’s too far out the way for just one star attraction. It needs something else, preferably something with a longer ride time.

3. An alternative to the Skyride. It’s had too much down time in the last few years. I normally visit with someone who uses a crutch to walk and it’s been a serious inconvenience. Sam’s idea of reopening the train sounds good although I’d extend it to go up the path towards the Towers. A land train could also be an option.

- Relocate Blade to the The Flume's lake, making it part of Mutiny Bay.

- Bring back Black Hole, if they're not going to put a new ride in the tent.

- New flat ride in the Dark Forest.

Exactly the same thinking as me, but maybe they could add a twist to the original Toyland Tours, add some more effects and spruce it up a bit, make it more 2012, rather than 1994. (:

Yes I wouldnt want it brought back completely the same as some would look outdated, but you could certainly bring an updated version with more modern toys, etc. You could probably even use the lifts with a brand new video some how linked to a toy or something.

As long as it was a proper themed ride and not like Charlie with its flat half themed walls, none moving features, emptyness and badly timed music!

1. Duel to something more unusual and more tastefull. Lasers can stay but the ride has lost something and needs redesigning with lasers in mind.

2. The railway would be nice to have back.

3. Adventure Land given a DLP-style steampunk theme with a YoungStar, or better yet, Gerstlauer family coaster (Troublesome Trucks model, plzkthx) in place of Beastie, with a small flat (breakdance maybe) in support. All well themed with nice golds, dark reds and blues. Would be epic.

I honestly don't see why people want Toyland Tours back, or even think that Alton Towers would ever consider bring it back. Yes, it was a fantastic ride for its time and far superior than the tragedy that we have now, but it was old, dated and most importantly unpopular by the time of is demise.

I don't remember it from my childhood - so I guess its easy of me to speak ill of it! :P

Don't get me wrong, it looked a fantastic ride but I think the decision to replace it was not necessarily a bad one. The problem lies with what they replaced it with..

Chris has a point. Why look back? It's gone, we have to get over it.
