Re: The Retro Squad - 2021

I think its great that the park have invested in a few flat rides that really are needed right now. What i really hope is that they don't become a permanent addition, But if they were to, that the park would theme them properly to fit within the specific areas.

That whole area is a goldmine of space. There's the unused coaster corner area that could make for another indoor dark ride attraction. plus there's the theatre, and the old nick building too! :)

Re: The World of David Walliams - *Delayed until 2021*

I really REALLY hope they carry on with this franchise right through that area of the park. It wouldn't have been my first choice, but i think there's enough stories and enough ideas for the whole of that area to recieve some kind of Walliams treatment :) i'm still a bit confused as to where this r...

https://mattsdesignsblog.files.wordpress.com/2021/03/shrinking-room-walls-closed-in.jpg I thought this might be fun - a room where the walls close in you.

Re: New for 2021 - Fairground Flat Rides

i'm apprehensive. it's great the fact that the park are addressing the lack of flats now, but the whole temporary thing makes me feel a little nervous that things wont really get replaced with a proper estabolished well themed flat ride, which is what the park is really screaming out for.

Re: The World of David Walliams - *Delayed until 2021*

I watched some of the David Walliams tv/film adaptations over the Christmas period and I have to say I enjoyed them. A fond favourite was The Boy in the Dress. Gangsta Granny was also very good, and actually hit me right in the feels towards the end. Really hoping the ride pulls off the story really...

Absolutely agree!

Re: The Future of Oblivion

Hearing the rumour of Nemesis getting an overhaul/re-track I'd love to see the possibility of Oblivion receive the same attention in a few years’ time, BUT... just after the tunnel, I’d love it if they added a new element like a barrel roll or something.   Back in its day, the whole world’s first v...

Nemesis could get overhauled! https://www.lifthillsandthrills.com/nemesis-at-alton-towers-set-for-a-major-overhaul/ big news indeed! but welcome news regardless!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

is there no way possible that a new huss top spin could be put back in Ripsaws place simply as Ripsaw 2.0? the restraints for the Suspended version look a lot more comfortable. I just think its rubbish all these flat rides have been removed over the years and nothing has really replaced them.

Re: The Future of Hex

I think with the advent of projection mapping technology I think the ride could be "plussed" quite a bit during the pre-shows and during the main ride. It's still one of the best themed darkd rides in the UK, plus there's also the legend/tale that strengthens it's tie to the park!

Re: The Next Themed Area or Area Refurbishment

Id like to see Katanga Canyon get a retheme to some form of Aztec jungle theme. I don't think it would be relatively difficult. The colonian african theme the land currently has is quite sparse and doesn't really have that much of an impact. Both Rapids and Mine Train could recieve some kind of ruin...

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I’d like to see the Haunted House return back to being its former self, but with an actual storyline and better effects. It used some pretty groundbreaking effects when it first opened, but now they are definitely showing their age. To have something on par with Disneylands Phantom Manor would be in...

Re: SW9

I feel like there's too much emphasis on the Secret Weapons as coasters and not enough being done for the smaller filler flat ride attractions. The park have gone through a period of removing flat rides and not actually replacing them with anything. I'd rather see what money was being budgeted for a...

Re: Parking garages next to main entrance?

In a nutshell, this will never happen. For the amount of cars that the Resort gets on a peak day, a sizeable multi-storey would be required. Remember, the Resort can’t build anything that would be seen from outside the boundary of the park, and given the location you’ve mentioned is at the very edg...
