I think adventure land is getting boring. I mean yes spinball whizzer is a very good ride but is there anything else good in there. it may be for kids but I havent seen it being popular for them either. I would retheme spin ball whizzer to a space theme with aliens and space ships and and put some more carnival rides put in places around the place

who agrees it should change

I think they should retheme Adventure Land into a Giant Arcade themed area to fit spinball. Replace beastie with a karoke coaster and Place a new huss breakdancer ride where space adventures is. (Like Dynamo)

I think its a good Idea to change it to a giant arcade. you would need to change the beastie to something because if you didnt it wouldnt fit

At the momment, i think adventure land is fine, the part need to focus on x-sector to improve that area and then anything else.

In your opinion.

I would tend to agree that X-Sector needs attention first. There needs to be a new attraction for the Black Hole tent and even though Submission is the newest ride I would have something replace it and possibly Enterprise too.

You can't get rid of enterprise?! its a classic!

Xsector just needs a bit of a clean up, a new attraction for the black hole tent and possibly replace subbmission.

Yeah I know what you mean, I used to love it but I think maybe it could be moved and something could fill that whole area where Submission and Enterprise are.

Hmm, I really don't think that Adventure Land needs changing. But X Sector, on the other hand, is probably the next area of the park that is in need of some TLC. Oblivion? Needs a repaint. Submission? It's got to go. Enterprise? It's fine, it doesn't need anything doing to it. Black Hole tent? That NEEDS a new coaster in there ASAP!

Yeah, I agree that Adventure Land needs some work doing to it. Oh, and you spelt 'anniversary' the French way! Woodie for the 30th anniversary? Yeah, that would be nice, actually.

Problems with Adventure Land

- Adventure Land is a nonsensical cluster of rides/play area.
- One of the rides (the beastie) is just a figure of eight track with a tunnel!
- There is a tiny play area with exactly the same stuff in as my local park
- The name of the area has no relevance to the rides.

I feel that X sector needs sprucing up first and adventure land should quickly follow.

Fair Enough.

Woah The Beastie is a figure 8 *puts The Beastie up from a 5 to a 6 in Alton Towers Booklet.

It's for Children (Beats my local Park).

There is a pefectly good play area in the old macdonalds farm now. I feel there is no need for two. The park in adventure land is also much smaller and is therefore less visited. I think the this space could be used more usefully.

Considering I am absolutely rubbish with coming up with names. I would call it something along the lines of THE GAME ZONE or XTREME ARCADE

Fair enough if there is another playground as it isn't that good to be there aswell as another

I could live with XTREME Arcade if it wasn't in X-Secdtor already tongue.gif
