    I fail to see the logic of bringing back a playlist of old rock music in an area [supposedly] themed to a spooky wood. Wouldn't that make an even bigger mess of the "theme"?

    To be fair, it makes just as much sense as having it in an area themed to prehistoric times.

    The dark forest needs more than just some music to cheer the place up!

    They should put a huge tent over the area and paint the inside black with trees. Make it a real dark forest lol

    Certainly they need more forest around the place and less scaffolding

    Instead of all the above they should bulldoze the whole area and start again.

    I know it was rethemed but 5 years ago, however if it was me in charge then DF would be the first area I would renovate. However, I can't see Towers/Merlin feeling the same way, unfortunately.

    :(

    Err what about CCL? DF is like a strawberry cream in a box of coffee creams compared to that.

    How?

    Sure it's hardly Disney theming but it's bright, fun and IceAge looks good. Dark Forrest is scaffolding!

    And the kids love it... which is the most important thing at the end of the day. By and large, it's no where near perfect, or Disney standard, as @Dave has aforementioned, but it is suitable for the kiddies.

    Dark Forest, however, is no where near acceptable theming wise.

    Because health and safety think it's too dangerous to walk under the launch (if there is a cable snap) and they wont pay money to do what every other theme park would do which is.... you know.... fix it!

    Because Alton Towers will not invest in a suitable improvement.

    Because Alton Towers cannot afford to keep their current rides open, nevermind invest in a suitable improvement.

    Because Alton Towers needed the money to install new car parking machines, than afford to keep their rides open, and invest in a suitable improvement.

    My hope for the season is that Merlin sell Alton Towers to a caring owner, said caring owner would also have bought the Busch parks off SeaWorld.

    Open the area of the Towers that has been blocked off since the Sanctuary has been in action. Really starting to annoy me several years on now. Lazy s***s won't bother though.

    Since the scaff was chanegd twice, I was led to believe they considered it to be an enchancement to the area's theming so they installed it perminently, not actually a H&S issue?
