From The Mirror (Be careful), No mention of the incident!
Just another one of Merlin's PR stunts.
If it is a merlin PR stunt, it is a damn sight better than some. (Thirteen anyone)

Thankfully the gravel isn't the finished look. Leek Signs uploaded this image.
@Kelpie's reaction to that photo:
"Wow. I'm feeling the enchantment."
Real fairy lights would have cost literally a pound, nice
As with the Moderately Rustic Village in general, declaring something decidedly ordinary-looking to be enchanted seems somewhat wide of the mark to me.
Does anyone know what rides and attractions are open over NYE events? It says selected family.... cant see anywhere where it says what!
I would imagine it is the same as what's open during the rest of the winter event; CBeebies, Mutiny Bay and Spinball.
Thanks Rob - has anyone been able to get MAP discount on NYE stays?
We did 10 years ago.
Well, unfortunately you can't travel back in time!
Anyway, whether we do or not, my decision is made not to go. I dont know if anyone from Towers reads or even reacts to the comments made on TripAdvisor (apart from the constant cut and paste replies) but recent reviews of the hotel, from people doing the santa sleepover and companies having work nights out are dreadful. Bad food and poor service is mentioned in nearly every review, including a constant theme emerging of staff not being bothered.
Its really sad to see this place going down the drain like this. Its no wonder Splash is closed to save money when people wont bother to book there again based on its bad reputation.
Dare I say it but its a pity they dont let a hotel chain take over the running of the hotels so they can pump a bit of money into them and bring them back up to speed. I'll be looking to spend my hard earned cash somewhere else for NYE.
Read the sign too quick and thought it said Enchanted Tip!
No, that's the accompanying IP
I have to wonder, are they deliberately giving poor service at ATH to (in their deceased minds) get people to stay in cbeebeis hotel instead next time...they are 100% out of touch enough to try that!
Are Alton Towers annual passes still available as they seem to have been removed from the website and whilst they are still listed on the accesso store, their page has been removed?
I expect the prices are about to be 'amended' to match the very-special-not-at-all-annual discounted merlin passes which are due in days.
I have just discovered that there is a fake Alton Towers channel on YouTube. Not sure whether Alton knows about this or not. I presumed it was fake as it only has 2,800 subscribers and has uploaded a POV of Hulk at IOA. And Alton Towers is not exactly known for promoting other parks. Here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwi8-FaiI5pBy3oJ0RtpbGA/feed
P.S. Sorry if this is off-topic.
Towers read these forums so no doubt someone will have picked this up....
2017 is now over, and so is the future of this thread!
Please use the 2018 General Discussion thread going forward.
