Re: Team Member Recruitment & Changes

Please join me in wishing Dan a fond farewell as he is stepping down from his role on the team.

Since joining in 2017 he has been a fantastic contributor, and a sure fine Forum Leader.

Thanks again Dan, and see you on an event (hopefully) later in the year. :8

Re: Christmas & New Year at the Alton Towers Resort

A survey by Alton Towers suggests that different options for a new Christmas event are being considered for this year. It mentions an ice skating rink, Christmas market, as well as the illuminated light trails that were available during the event last year. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KFC7GYQ?u...

Re: New for 2021 - Fairground Flat Rides

Yep, I share your concerns. But thinking positively, I am hoping this is a business case to show Merlin that these rides are needed in permanent form for next year.

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...

Re: Chessington World of Adventures Resort

It's always okay to discuss rumours and speculation, and it's helpful when the evidence or sources are linked or referenced to back up any statements made. :) Will be interesting to see what Chessington does moving forward, and how close they stick to the long term development plan, submitted in 201...

Re: Question about two day visits

Me and some friends are considering a two day trip to Alton Towers in the summer and we're wondering if it's better to stay at an on-site hotel or if we should get one near to the resort. Does anyone have any advice? And possibly any other tips for a multiple day visit? Really it's down to cost. Th...
