Hi guys. As the only one of Alton Towers’ SW coasters to have ever been rethemed, Galactica’s current theme certainly divides opinion; some people prefer the aesthetic of the ride as it is now, while some long for the days of Air to return. So my question to you today is; removing the now non-existent VR from the equation, do you prefer the theming of Galactica or the former Air theming? Personally, I’d have to vote Galactica. As much as I wasn’t personally huge on the VR (while I initially found it an interesting novelty, the novelty had worn off completely by the 2nd go for me, and I’m generally not a fan of not being able to see the surrounding scenery while you’re going round the ride; the VR felt a little claustrophobic, for lack of a better word, for me, even though I don’t have claustrophobia), I think they did an excellent job of making Air more aesthetically pleasing and giving it a stronger sense of theme and presence. As much as Air had a nice sleek style, I think it did lack a bit of thematic presence, and the portal, soundtrack and redone station, amongst other elements, do now give the ride that certain sense of thematic presence that it lacked as Air. The portal is an excellent theming element, in my opinion, and I’m a huge fan of the soundtrack; I vastly prefer Galactica’s soundtrack to Air’s former one, and I’d controversially say that Galactica’s track is possibly one of my favourites on park! But which do you prefer? Are you a Galactica fan like me, or do you long for Air to return?
