^ I think it was Heide Park if I remember correctly :lol:

I don't see how anyone would pay that price to sleep in a shed and walk across a field to use one of 12 bathrooms shared with 400 people :lol:

The Alton Towers Dungeon is new, however, replaces Charlie in the Chocolate Factory, and will cost £7.50 on top of the £56 entrance fee (which has gone up from last year, naturally).


Could it be the sub terra towers have been re used in this dungeon? The ride wasn’t that old to be scrapped and I think the London dungeon have the same tower for a hangman’s ride or at least one similar in that you load at the top of the tower and get dropped below.

That was the educated guess of a lot of people, but I don't believe it will be part of the dungeon. The CATCF boat ride definitely is though.

^&^^ It would be a new Merlin high point to take an existing somewhat new ride, close it, and then repurpose it as an upcharge! ;)

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Please don't give them ideas!

Does seem crazy to leave those towers in there doing nothing, however.

Ok so this is not specifically Alton Towers, but its too good to not post. At 1:30 in this video the Chief Executive Officer of Merlin Entertainment says: "One of the things that I think Merlin leads the whole world in at the moment is themed accommodation. I think we do it better than anybody else"... What have this guy been smoking :lmao: What about Disney, Universal, Europa Park, Phantasialand, Efteling, Port Aventura, even Fårup sommerland have better accommodation!


Why do I still have a donkey title???

I don't know, if Merlin gave me a million pounds a year I'd be likely to say they're the best.
