Completely agree. It wouldn't be Alton Towers without either. Look at the alternative, a cheapo entrance in Forbidden Valley, loosing the highly marketable entrance way and view of the Towers that is Towers Street and the cost of dismantling what seems to be a sound piece of infrastructure. I don't think it makes commercial sense to do anything other than upgrade the monorail. I think this differs from the Chessington replacement entrance (which I think is awful) in that the original entrance was never anything on the Scale and grandure of the AT entrance plaza and Towers Street, the park hasn't been marketed consistently for decades based on its entrance view and it never had a fully fledged rapid transport system like the AT monorail installed.
