Let's start with the top 5 TowersTimes News articles on 2010, and at number 5 is:
Back in March there was a huge hype building for the new for 2010 rollercoaster TH13TEEN. On the 8th of March Alton Towers Facebook page revealed the "blipverts", one of the more popular aspects of TH13TEENs marketing.
We go back to the end of January, when Thirteen and the Dark Forest was still under construction. Alton Towers continued their online marketing efforts and released some images via Flickr of the Rita retheme. At the time, Alton Towers fans were desperate to see any pictures of the Dark Forest construction.
One of the low points of the year for many Alton Towers fans was the cancellation of the TH13TEEN preview weekend. Anger and dissapointment was felt by many of those booked on the preview weekend so Morwenna Angove (the then head of Sales and Marketing) released this statement to TowersTimes. The event was cut down to one evening later in the season. Click here for videos from the John Wardley Presentation at the TH13TEEN Evening.
