Re: What song reminds you the first time you went Alton?

Take That - Could It Be Magic

I remember sitting in the old Cred Street magic show theatre and they must have played this track at some point. Back in 1995. MAGIC!

Re: 2011: The Honest Truth

It does appear that the park has stopped caring for their customers and that quality is being lost somewhere along the line.

Considering that Alton Towers is meant to be one of the best Resorts in the world, it does appear that they're not living up to their title this year.

Re: Alton Vs Thorpe Roller Coaster Themeing

I would say that the surroundings and landscaping of AT blow Thorpe out of it water that it floats on.


One thing I really miss from both parks is 'real themeing'.

Re: The annual car park price hike. 2011 edition.

Can you still get FREE parking if you stay behind for a couple of hours after the park closes?


We went for drinks at the hotel after Halloween a few years back and all the barriers were up 2 or 3 hours later?

Who is up for buying a field next to the Entrance and charging £2 per a car?

I don't think there is any joke with the crowds comment - Just the journalist writing trying to make it seem more interesting than it actually was.

Re: Second concert - 6th July 2011 - Black Eyed Peas

Awesome! The Black Eyed Peas are not only huge in the UK, but the US too.

You can't deny that they have brought out some actual killer catchy tunes!


Well done Towers :D

I think if the resort are to push boundaries in the future - some sort of interactive adventure playground is needed, remember the Temple concepts?

Re: Map for The Gardens

An attraction NEEDS to be made of the gardens, not just a map. Surely the Eden project has proved that flowers/plants can be interesting? IMO, The Resort needs to restore the features that currently exist and add modern twist. Features have been added for centuries, why stop now? The place is slowly...

Re: 2011: Discussion

:P Some people here are so negative. The park held 2 concerts at the park last year, both of which were a success. It's clear that it's something they wanted to continue - afterall, they held many events like this in the 80's and 90's. As for the choice of bands - they did have Sum 41 play under Nem...

Re: 2011: Discussion

If this is the case, I hope that the events and entertainments of 2011 are thrown into the spotlight, they're things that the resort can work on during the season.

Personally I would like to see a 3rd show brought into the park (Katanga/The Farm) with a summer event to join Scarefest & Fireworks?

Re: 2011: New Attractions Discussion

I don't see how we would know of any attractions being added or not? I know many people know people who work at the resort and have their 'sources', however it's perfectly plausable that an attraction has, is or will be installed before the park opens in a couple of months? Or even a mid season attr...

Re: New Steak House coming to ATH!

To be fair, it's not being advertised anywhere or even been offically confirmed, so I don't think we can expect it to be opened any time.

It does sound very nice though, I wander what sort of tasty treats they will have on offer.
