im liking the carnival idea.

Chester and Hester's Dino Rama at Animal Kingdom, was pretty much bombed by Disney fans. BUT, im really liking the carni/playful touch. Something like that i think would work well at Alton Towers.

Nope, it's a fairly new ride. It's a good area at Disney's Animal Kingdom, but it's not the Disney quality everyone expects.

It would, however, fit into Alton Towers very well.

I thought it was called Primeval Whirl? Anywya, it's a bad ride iirc, but it would suit the Towers, in terms of theaming.

DinoLand USA is the name of the whole are which includes the Dinosaur Institute (Dinosaur ride), the Bone Site, (kids play area) Resturant-o-saurus, big eatery. This part is al nice and well themed. Chester & Hester's Dino-Rama is the atrocity that they quickly added in when they realised they didn't have enough rides, poor cheap themeing, two off the shelf spinning mice complete with cardboard theming, wiring, supports on show and all the fun of Brighton Pier. Yeah it's pretty poor.

Anyway back on topic...

After not riding The Beastie on Sunday and just watching it I've realised what a complete waste of space it is!

Keep the track but, as Hex says re-theme the area to an arcade.

Build Race Horse cars, make it a Steeplechase ride based on one of those Arcade Horse Race Games.

You could even get a decent queue line video for it (Although the queues would rarely reach 20 minutes)

Adventure land doesn't look right atm!
With Spinball Wizzer and the Beastie, Beastie needs a repaint definatley!
Changing it into a large arcade would be a great idea and a big improvement.
Lets hope they change it soon because I'm getting bored!

I agree with you, Adventure Land is looking a bit worst for wear now. I would say it's getting a bit tacky and Spinball Wizzer needs a good re-paint. Alton Towers need to improve this area because it is near the park entrace and most of the public are most likely to pay a visit to Adventure land first. First impressions really mean something! rolleyes.gif Reply if you agree!

adventure land still hasent been changed! what i mean about the gloomy woods is that they could take down the top of the house and make like two more floors and keep duel but maybethey could put a roller coster in the top floor the carriages in the shape of a ghost you start in the house then you go through a broken window and fly about the top of the house or they could just make duel bigger blush.gif

Now Spinball Whizzer is Sonic Spinball I think a sonic themed area would be fab. The beastie should go, and be replaced by another junior coaster which is a lot safer as when I went on the beastie I felt like I was going to fall out of the car. Also, a little toddler queue jumped me about 10 times, mind you, I did have chips in my hand!

I can't see the beastie going for a few years. Its the only coaster kids can really go on. little kids I mean, Runaway Mine Train is to big for some. I love the beastie! It needs a new paint job and some themeing but its fab! I wouldn't mind another kiddie coaster thou, another credit to add to the list =p

no no NO! tongue.gif

they need to stop with all this branding crap, and just come up with something totally original for the park. something that wont date as easily anyway.

spinball, when its had its big ol'e sonic rebrand and everyone's happy, should go in the black hole tent... from what ive seen pictures wise, the coaster just looks an eyesore as you enter the park. its like HELLO!!!

the whole area should remain a kids area, possibly theme it back to storybook land again? its one of the areas of the park thats quite "open" you go down towers street, and its THERE! which is a shame, as most of the lands in the park are kinda hidden away. i havent been to the park in years tho, and usually pass that area, so i dunno what its like anymore.

If they were to sonic theme at least re theme the beastie to something like "Sonics Super Spin" And call the area green zone tongue.gif *Sonic level for those who dont understand*

Or if to flow with the Arcade idea retheme and call it something arcade themed...

Besides whats wrong with Pirate bay. Tea cups, water cannon thing ma bob and a aquarium. whats to not like tongue.gif

Anddd.... On to another topic if the pub / resteraunt inside the sort of castle thing (not the towers. The area with the electric heaters. Used to be medival themed.) been re themed or is that me thinking back to the past (havn't visited that bit for a while.)
