I think Alton Towers should just use The Smiler and CBeebies Land as their advertisement and focus on revamping the place so that when people do visit, their experience is amazing so they will return and are more likely to stay over and visit 2 days in a row (which AT has said they are aiming to increase). I deffo think Air needs some theming, just so it looks like it belongs in FV. The Dark Forest is a bit of a let down (ride-wise and theming). The could spend a bit really improving the area to be super themed up. Also to tackle the lack of rides, rather than remove other flats, eg Blade and Ripsaw, they could relocate them to Dark Forest. I love CCL and don't think it should be replaced by Ice Age, but they could make it look like there's snow on all the roofs. Adventure Land needed theming ASAP as it barely looks like an area, just Sonic dumped along the way to Oblivion. SEGA Land would be really cool and perfect to introduce a new ride (Flat!!!) Oblivion should have the TV ads that it showed when it first opened played again.
It needs to be done in this order - Oblivion's TV ad (as its practically free but helps set up the tension and anticipation SO much), Adventure Land, Dark Forest, Air, Snow on CCL roofs.
I also think that Nemesis Sub-Terra should be turned into the entrance to Nemesis, making Nemesis have amazing theming. As riders are sent in batches, those who don't want to go in the drop part could have a skip option where they can wait for those who have dropped before the whole batch is sent down the queue line (which could be enclosed like the queue line just before boarding Oblivion is) and onto Nemesis. There could also be an exit so that riders don't have to go on to Nemesis. This could also be an advertising point and could be renamed slightly (like "The Nemesis") The story could go Nemesis arrived (explanation for the coaster) had babies (explanation for Sub-Terra) now can you face the offspring (which has grown up into the coaster) so in effect riders follow the story of the "new" Nemesis' life.
