Finally! We have a TV advert! It's amazing! But to be honest I prefer the sub terra advert because it was super creepy! Felt as though the smiler advert should have been a bit more creepy! But still AMAZING. So happy!

Just saw the advert! Was entirely cartoon as far as I could tell... I don't think it gave the opening date though, perhaps they don't want opening day to be too busy?

Decent enough advert although I'm still hoping for a post watershed ad which shows a bit more. It was kind of brief and tame given its theme but pretty creepy guy.

What an advert! And that's not a good thing!!! Why do alton have to make there adverts so dream like 'cartoon' like caracters ect...
It just werid, didn't sell it to me! I wanted a th13teen style advert!!! Scary creepy one that tell you the back story all I got from that was its run by a canival master which it is not!!! I'm really upset I was wanting so much more, even the N:ST advert was better but that didn't advertise the full horror of it, now I know it daytime tv so they can play a clip frommfreddy Kruger ;) but I was wanting something much creepier and something that told us the back story more, it looked cheap and rushed and I can't put my finger in the other thing and the words to describe it but I guess you get the gist!
I hope that's just a blip....
Ohhh I am really disappointed now...
Anyway it just dosent to the ride justic :-(

Thorpe do much better adverts that tell us the story of the ride!! The swarm or saw are just two amazing examples... Hopeful one day Alton will take a leaf out of there book, not all the kiddy were houses at the start start away make it creepy and about the ride..... No relation to the park!!!! ;) haha sorry for going a bit mad, but I'm just a but upset haha

I confess myself... disappointed :( I must say I was expecting a very creepy, horror movie-esque style advert that was a bit daring. I found that a bit childish! And the voice dubbing was terrible haha!

I can only hope there are more to come and that was a sneak preview. Sorry to be negative, but it's just my opinion :)
