Hmmm, ive been going every year since 93, and to me its still a decent theme park. Ok, so its worn in places and has its problems, but its still set in the most amazing surroundings, it still has a certain magic around it, the gothic remains of alton towers is still amazing every time I walk in and see it infront of me, and the memories I have of the place every year since going for the first time, be it in the summer walking around the gardens, the fun at scarefest, the ooh's and arrr's at fireworks, to me, it still is a decent park. Whether or not its worth the money to visit, well, naturally thats argueable, but your day there is what you make it to be and the people your with. Is a decent park , umm, say Disney? Would I want it like Disney? No. Alton has its own magic, its own rustic charm and for me, its all about the memories that are made there.
