    Totally agree, the quality of output RCCGB are turning up in the last few weeks is great.

    This one has some of the clearest footage of vintage AT I have seen, a professional production quality image (for the time). I can finally see how that area around Thunder Looper looked back then, and realise how old most of the stuff is at AT.

    These seem like they're from the Towers archive? Great footage of the park back then!

    Some recently uploaded videos of the park in 1995 here, pretty much covers the entire park for anyone wanting a bit of nostalgia. Even includes some brief footage of the Hex queue line when it was a gift shop.

    Look how clean everything is! :tearsofjoy:

    A look at X-Sector in 1998 here on GMTV. The mist on the drop is in full swing with it actually coming out of the end of the tunnel and a look inside the long closed Rehydraytor walk in area in the drop zone.

    The YouTube algorithm has just recommended me this:

    I didn't know there were concerts at Alton Towers before 2010!
    Annoyingly you can't see much of the park but at 36:30 you can see Spinball and at 55:20 the Squirrel Nutty.

    Lots and lots of live concerts in the fifties and sixties...my gran went on and on about seeing more brass and dance bands at the Towers in one day than she saw in the rest of the year.
    Lots of nice travelling fairground rides as well.
