    Does anybody know where the music that now plays on the path between Gloomy Wood and Forbidden Valley is from? I swear to God I've heard it before!

    I might be wrong although I think it was old music used at Alton Towers back in 2006/2007 for Nemesis and/or Forbidden Valley, when they lost the rights to the original tracks for a bit.

    Do they have new music in forbidden valley now? Not talking about the new music between fv and gloomy woods, but around by forbidden treats and nemices (near blade). Don't think I've ever heard it before, and it certainly wasn't the normal nemesis music.

    I am liking the new music around the park though. Just relese it on a cd in towers trading like other parks please.

    Yeah when I was there yesterday, I noticed the music playing around Nemices and Burger Kitchen. I think this is the same music that's played between Fv and Gloomy Wood.

    How long is the music between GL and FV? Definitely didn't sound the same, but it may have just been a different part of the music. Didn't think it fit too well with the theme of fv.

    I'm not sure the length of it and yeah I thought it sounded pretty bad. Especially when it merges with Nemmy's soundtrack near Sub Terra.

    I'm loving the audio around the park. So much more immersive than the pop at pleasure beach. It really makes it feel as though you have escaped to the Alton Towers resort!;)

    Here's a clip of some new music I've done that's playing in Mutiny Bay.

    Noticed the new Mutiny Bay music on my visit. Not sure why it needed changing but I like the new music nonetheless, fits in well with the area.

    Great to see so many audio improvements across the park this year. The addition of music around the Towers is especially brilliant, really adds more to your visit.

    Closed season listening sorted it's always good to have access to park soundtracks just a shame there isn't a imascore CD or just a CD of all soundtracks.

    Does it replace the old mutiny bay music played around marauders and heave ho, the audio around battle galleons, the courtyard music, or does it not replace anything? Don't think anything needed to be replaced, but good to see more music being added to the park.

    I don't know - I haven't heard it in the park yet - but I think it's all over now.

    Could this new soundtrack be the first prep for Sw8? If anything, I'm hoping the new coaster gives the area the proper pirate atmosphere it needs as opposed to the Merry England painted in dark colours with a flag at the front look it currently sports.

    yeah, the soundtrack will probably be played in the coaster's Station and maybe around the queue line as well.

    When I visited last the new music was playing throughout the entire area, no old music to be heard.

    All audio in Sharkbait was off which was strange!
