Just vote for your favourite themed area of the park and then discuss why you like it the most below. Remember say why you like it and what rides do you think are good or were good in that area and things like that.

Voted for Old Macdonalds Farmyard because its the most heavily themed area in Alton towers. Also storybook land is heavily themed aswell.

I chose forbidden valley, the nemesis theming is awesome and the rides fit in (even air which is themed as an oasis)
and also the ambiance of the nemesis theme is (with the acception of the dark forest) unbeatable.

I think that Dark Forest is the best themed area, simply because it looks exactly how a spooky and dark forest would... :D

Definitely Festival Park. There was something wonderful about it this area back in the day. The sights, the rides, Corkie's lift hill noise...magical!

I chose X Sector, but it would be Forbidden Valley if it weren't for Air

I chose X-Sector because it has simple-ish, theming that works very well.

I voted for X sector because I loved the theming as it was very futuristic and the video that you watch before you ride Oblivion.
Being number two is just being the first to lose.

I've gone and chose UG Land, Now obviously i mean the ORIGINAL UG Land.
the theming for the area and attention to detail was amazing and there was always a buzz around the area and always something to do. I still remember the full like up of rides..
-BoneShaker - AMAZING flat ride and well themed
-UG Swinger - Also worked really well and actually had some queues
-UG BUGS - more for yonger guests to ride whilst grownups rode corkscrew
Corkscrew - Just the classic and fitted in so well to the area

Then it had top side show games, not like the boring container style buildings now dotted everywhere in dark forest, had the Soak -a- Saurus which was really popular especially in summer, the UG treehouse with fountains, the UG family as entertainment, it just had everything as an area and was never a bore to be in..

Sadly the area now is only a vey small shadow of what was once one of the top class areas of the park, and still miss it to this day!

I like the uniqueness of FV personally, air and all, gloomy wood rates high as does KC & MB.
