Staff reductions, removal of multiple rides and further budget cuts to park operations this year. Yep, Merlin really know how to bring the magic back...I am soo glad that they have announced a maintenance program. Maybe Merlin do care as much as Tussauds did about the upkeep of the park. Dare I say over the next few seasons, they might bring back the magic to Alton Towers?
The 190 was a number based upon full time year-round roles being removed or reshuffled and others being removed from Alton relocated into other areas of Merlin etc.Really towers? What was the point of getting rid of 190 people then?
It's only sonic opening at 9:30 everything else opens at 9:00 I believeI'm pleased to see Oblivion on the ERT list . Not much else worth bothering for 9.30 start is a complete joke By the time they let you in and you get to the rides, there won't be much ERT left before they start letting in the normal guest. And if previous past year ERT's are anything to go by, they tend to let the normal guest in the ERT any way
Do you think that this might mean that they be letting in normal guest at 10.30?
I suppose that means that I can now have an extra 30mins in bed in the morning
You've got your head screwed on right. That will be the only good use of ERT this season. Although I prefer a quick paced walk through the garden path myself whilst most people run all the way around Katanga or Haunted Hollow and usually don't make it there any quickerERT might just be worth it to run to air and wait for it to open
