Indeed, some fantastic plans that I really did enjoy looking at, there were quite a few others but I did not have much memory left on my camera, so I just picked out the better plans, such as Project Dolphin.
A few of the other plans that were shelved included "Extraordinary Gardens" and "Alton Towers Cluedo", Extraordinary Gardens was an idea that would of happened this year, it was something that would of transformed the gardens into a rather weird place, with a vast amount of odd things around the gardens such as sofas hanging from tress and various weird buildings and other features, to make the gardens a lot more "extraordinary", so to speak.
As for Alton Towers Cluedo, I did not really pay much attention to that, not sure whether it was a game they was going to sell or an actual interactive life size game of Cluedo for guests to play, did not really grab my attention to be honest.
I really do hope that at some point down the line, those Project Dolphin plans are strongly re-considered as it just looked out of this world, would of really put the Alton Towers resort on the map and would of been pretty iconic for the European Theme Park industry.
It's nice to hope...:)
