    So I was looking for something else and stumbled across a DVD called "The Alton Towers Story", realised in 2008. I have never heard of it before.

    It's not that good. Mostly a glorified advert for the park.

    Seemingly already sold. I can't remember if I have this one in a box somewhere. Is John Wardley in it?

    That was quick. Yeah, Wardley is in it. He's mentioned in the bumf on the back of the case. There are actually 2 versions of the DVD. Mostly the same content but one is a slightly updated version with a bit of newer material added (if I remember correctly). I have them both here in front of me.

    Edit - The one sold above is the earlier 2005 version. There was then the updated version released in 2008. Both are decent for getting little snapshots of what the park was like a decade and more ago.

    I just watched this absolutely stunning cinematic video of the park by Taylor Bybee from Coaster Studios:

    Really worth a watch, in my opinion!

    Very good. Better than any promo videos the park have done themselves in the last 10 years.

    Hopefully it might be ready for Scarefest, it's certainly overdue!
