    Going by how thick these panic buyers are, I wouldn't be surprised if that beer has not sold out because they think it's infected with the actual virus.

    Towers should populate ride times with fake numbers to keep us all occupied over the next three months. 99% of the Alton Towers experience is checking queue times when you're 200 miles away

    Can we just award @Log Flume's Dennis a lifetime "funniest member" award. There is no point even voting on it this year

    When does everyone predict they'll be open? I think three months is a possibility but a lot of businesses are in the dark as the government hardly have a plan in place.

    Right now the park have removed the option to book tickets until 26th April - so perhaps that is the provisional date they are working towards. Doubt anyone really knows how it will play out though.

    If we get an early peak...summer holidays, to get it over with before winter.
    Slower peak...back to school time.
    High death rates and repeats...next year.

    Slim chance of the Summer holidays, but probably next season more realistic

    It's gonna be open before next season. I think everyones being a bit dramatic. China have had it for 3 months and are already rapidly going down. We've already had it for a month and aren't going up anywhere near as quickly as they did so we must be doing something right.

    I can’t see it myself as they currently think it’s gonna be the end of June when the virus is gonna peak so u got to be looking at July/August at the earliest. Shanghai been closed since Jan so that may reopen In April.

    Either way, 2020 season can already be called the worst of 40 year Alton towers history.

    Now there's a debate that might keep the whole community going for a while. I can certainly think of worse.

    There's a fair few candidates for years when it might have been for the best if the park hadn't opened

    Should we just lock this topic now and save everyone the hassle?
