Nestle = yuck

Cadbury = yum

I know that Cadbury is now owned by the American TNC Kraft but it is still a brand with a distinctly british heritage much like Alton Towers. They went hand in hand.

Nestle on the other hand is vile. The company is unethical and their brands taste cheap.

Thunderlooper looked amazing, and I bet Alton's maintenance folk would have kept it in superb condition unlike most parks that have a Schwarzkopf Shuttle Loop!

Toyland Tours for me! :) Although before its closure there was hardly any queues, if there were any at all, it was a magical ride that shouldn't of been replaced. The theming was so extensive compared to CATCF with all plastic boards everywhere.

Personally I think they Should bring back the show Peter rabbit And friends on ice for me that was one of my earliest memories of Alton towers.
But Alton towers have had so many great attractions in the past and with out a doubt they will in the future so many great rides will be lost due to past and future improvements to the park.
Would like to see this topic in the next 10 to 15 years to see how much has changed by then ??

If you count it as gone, I would say the Beastie.

Very clichéd seeing I have not ridden most of the good attractions at Alton but I would bring back Corkscrew. This really put A.T on the map and is a great roller coaster for anyone to ride. I wish I was able to ride it.

I'm going to go for Thunderlooper, I know it was knackered but in my opinion it still dominated the area even when Nemisis opened.
I believe it is some park in brazil now.
I WILL be back

Me personally it has to be the vintage cars 1983 _ 2005. Alas gone but not forgotten'thrilling .. original.... nostalgic ' trailblazers really. I remember a quote in a magazine from a spokesperson for six flags "Alton have raised the bar so high it's in orbit"says it all really.
Let vintage cars rust in peace

^Skyloops, the new Superman at SFDK, Oblivion, etc, it's the buildup and theme on most of the new short layout coasters.

It would definitely have to be Toyland Tours!! So many great memories as a kid, it would have been fantastic to take my own children one day.
