    @Dave I don't disagree, but I wonder what revenue is associated with the guests given the season pass deal.

    Indeed. Hit 400p today... @matthewgcole is OUT!

    I will be shocked if they don't, it is such a big game.

    EDIT:

    Towers are saying on social media at the moment that they have showed previous games but have no confirmation yet of showing the game on Saturday. I am sure that there will be confirmation shortly.

    :)

    Something's definitely happening with Sub Terra. My guess is it could be something for this years Scarefest :)

    Alton Towers have confirmed that they will be showing the match in the Courtyard again on Saturday. This will be on a first come first served basis due to limited capacity.

    Seems they're taking on board feedback regarding the ridiculous queues for quencher refills, as the kiosk between gloomy wood and forbidden valley seems to have reopened after being closed all season so far.

    I was hoping they'd step it up a bit, bit disappointing really, ENG-GER in fountains square back in 2010 was great, even if the match was a disaster

    They could potentially be hiding the building, as Merlin seem to like hiding things with massive scaffolding walls. Firstly, they hid WM testing during the 2017 Christmas event. Now, they've hidden Colossos at Heide Park while the refurbishment is going on. It would continue a long legacy of Merlin using scaffolding as a means of keeping attractions secret in Merlin attractions worldwide!

    I hope to god they’re not trying to cover up a dungeons logo on the side of that thing.

    I think I rather watch it on my phone on the free wi-fi while queuing up. I ain't spend nearly £300 for a weekend at the park to watch England in the final or 3rd/4th place playoff game to watch it in the pub.

    Its a bit of co-incidence however that they have put in to register the Alton Dungeon (most of which use drop towers) and Scarefest is coming up dont you think?

    Mmmmmmm I wonder...... The place is getting busy again people are getting p***ed off with the long queues if a ride goes down in say forbidden valley and the announcement comes on saying "we recommend that you try one of our other attractions " and you look around to say what other attractions? Now people see a SBNO ride and start asking questions. So what is managements idea? Let's put up scaffolding so people think something is being refurbed that will keep em quiet!

    What do you mean? Forbidden valley used to have 5 attractions it now has only 3 that is 40% less!! If you get the same crowds as pre smiler How do keep them happy / satisfied with nearly 50 % less to do? ?

    Indeed it will. And they're not just making it look like they're doing work!

    Its all about 2 things queue or buy a fast track ticket.
    Before the SW were built there was a good mixture of coasters and flat rides all across the park and now there's 8 coasters over the 1.2m tall,2 coasters for the under 1.0 height,2 ageing flat rides,2 dark rides,2 water rides and the rest young family rides. In 1993 the park was more busier then it is now but the good section of flats give u a good double figures in ride count now unless you buy a fast track ticket u be lucky to get on everything at least once over 2 days.
