Hi guys. As most of us know, the Alton Towers Dungeon has been open for a week now. However, the boat ride system within the attraction dates way back to 1981, when the attraction first opened as Around The World in 80 Days. Then, it was rethemed to Toyland Tours in 1994, and then again to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2006. The ride closed in 2015, sat dormant between 2016 and 2018 and finally reopened in 2019 as the Alton Towers Dungeon. But the question I made this thread to ask was; which of this boat ride's many iterations is your personal favourite? I'm not going to rank Around the World in 80 Days and Toyland Tours as I haven't seen an awful lot of them online, but here's my personal opinion based on my memories of CATCF and what I've heard about the Dungeons, controversial as it might be: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Alton Towers Dungeon Now, my reasoning for ranking CATCF higher than the Dungeons is because as good as the Dungeons looks from what I've heard about it and seen of it, the boat ride sounds as though it has quite a few dark spaces, whereas CATCF almost always gave you something to look at, if you get what I mean. I also think that CATCF fitted CCL better than the Alton Towers Dungeon, and I must admit that I have somewhat of a nostalgic connection to CATCF; it was the ride my mum always took me on as a young child while my dad and sister rode the bigger attractions, and I still liked to ride it even when I was tall enough to ride the bigger attractions! I will admit that I have seen nothing of the Black River portion of the Dungeons, and I must admit that it looks like a fantastic overall experience if you like that sort of thing, but those are my personal opinions. But which iteration did you guys like best?
