Further Details on the Coming Years
TowersTimes has more details about the coming years across the Alton Towers Resort. As already reported here on TowersTimes, a Sea Life is coming to Mutiny Bay, and some further details have emerged.
The Sea Life is to be located in the old 3D Cinema building, behind the Mutiny Bay Shoppe. The installation is rumoured to be from a travelling Sea Life in Germany, with a cost of £1.8million to bring it to Mutiny Bay.
Also as reported for 2009, Cred Street will be a completely new area follwing a transformation over the approaching closed season. Along with the removal of the iconic Corkscrew rollercoaster, the Bouncng Bugs will be removed from the park at the end of the 2008 season. In its place will be a relocated Ug Swinger from Ug Land and a new Adventure Play Ground.
So 2009 isn't the best year again for the Thrill Seeker, but in 2010 there will be a major installation in Ug Land. This installation is said to have the codename 'Secret Weapon 6', or 'SW6'. Enthusiasts may get excited at the sound of that, as Nemesis was built under the codename SW3, Oblivion SW4 and Air SW5.
It is also rumoured that we will start to see ground work from next year in hope to have SW6 open for the start of the 2010 season.
Towers Times will bring you more news as we get it.
