Welcome to TTF Bushboy2!

It is a shame AT has changed like this.
Back then there was free parking! :D
Cheap Food!
The Magic!

My first visit was in 2003 and I still felt the magical atmosphere.
But I just wish Id visited before and felt the real magic!

my first visit was 1995 when i was only 10.. still managed to get on Nemesis and was lucky enough to get a ride on thunder looper too!... dont remember much of it tho which is a shame. Heh, i even rode blade and dynamo when they were next to the black hole!

ive been to the park pretty much every year since except last year where I didnt go atall.

i think Alton started to loose its magic with the introduction of the fast food outlets. Ok, it always had fast food outlets but i meant macdonalds, KFC and Pizzahut. I remember eating (and being waited on) in the restaurant opposite the RMT... now a KFC. Surely, the whole point of a theme park is to make you feel like you really are in an african village, or on a futuristic military base, but when everywhere you turn is a macdonalds sign or KFC right in your face, it kinda ruins it.


Anyway, a little off topic :P

I remeber one in (around) 1997 where these kids are asleep, they hear a noise, open a closet door and enter the magic world of Alton Towers. I may be wrong, I was only 6 at the time.

Am I right? And does a file exist of it?

Thanx
Argh! REVISION

BTW, none of the links work!

The themeparkstuff page doesn't have the oblivion adverts on there.... has the spinball whizzer one tho... i don't think i've EVER seen it!! Damn Vernon Kay! The Thrush of the TV world!

I would LOVE to see the original Nemesis adverts... I've never seen them!

And the one where the children go to the closet... isn't that a Disney Land advert?

I think that Oblivion's adverts were by far the coolest that I've seen. That's an example of a well targeted ride campaign!

I remember when I was like 6 pr 7,seeing the one of the inside of the hotel,and then seeing real swans turn into the swan boats,.I really want to see the Nemesis advert so badly! Never seen it at all.

I also liked the oblivion one where a person on the ride starts to sweat.the sweat drops down into the hole and the train catches up with it! Amazing. anyone know what im talkin bout :?

I'd love to download the Original Oblivion advert with the 30 second one and the 10 second one, not the weird one with Phantom Of The Opera on it.
