The merch for Thorpe Parks’s 40th looks very good. And it’s undoubtedly been very popular by the looks of it, so it would be great if Alton Towers have a similar range of retro stuff for their 40th next year.
Late night openings in the summer would be fantastic. They could maybe pair that up with a special anniversary entertainment offering like a projection show on the Towers or a concert on the lawns. Or both. No doubt we’ll see the return of the cake and bunting on Towers Street. If they’re feeling generous, maybe we’ll see some new decorations added to the recurring lineup of current ones . Presumably there’ll be no new attractions, but they’ll advertise it as being more of an event based year like what Thorpe Park are doing this year – by no means a bad thing.
