I hope Alton Towers never fall for the wooden coaster gimmick.

I agree with you regarding wooden coasters never being themed particularly imaginatively, or having a theme that doesn't work well with the ride's aesthetics *cough* Terminator Salvation at Magic Mountain *cough*, but that doesn't mean they can't be given a different theme.
They're also not gimmicks either as they provide a different ride experience to steel coasters.
There are no modern wooden coasters in the UK so it's difficult for people to grasp their appeal, but they really are good fun and one would compliment Alton Towers' roller coaster line-up very well (either that or a steel coaster that focuses on airtime and not more inversions would do me) in my opinion. But if you really do hate them, fair enough!
