  • If we can behave like the Bavarians do at Oktoberfest.If we can serve great quality fresh,strong beer like the Bavarians do at Oktoberfest. If we can serve fresh good quality food like the Bavarians do at Oktoberfest. Then I'm there. Sadly I doubt we can do any of the above☹️

  • I think as when they next release their next thrill ride they could make a coaster of a mix of time traveller and nemesis and following their worlds first coasters they could maybe make like a spinning invert somehow or a spinning flying coaster. Maybe get Mack and B&M to team up in the future. Probably won’t happen though😂

  • With the food truck idea it’s worth remembering that Towers normally have food trucks during Scarefest and Fireworks so could we see that provision extended and given the theme.

  • Oktoberfest might be a will timed event to keep visitor numbers up over the tail end of the Main season and the start of the Halloween event. Not sure how Merlin does things, but if they hire some of their seasonal workers until November to cover Halloween, this might be a good way to reduce overstaffing between the End of Summer and Halloween by keeping them busy for a few extra weeks.

  • Alton Towers is a bit of a shite park to get drunk in/at. It's very expansive (i.e. confusingly laid out at the best of times, before throwing ETOH into the mix), and very dark. Not a good mix for wrangling drunk people and stopping them killing themselves. Also, the transport links are atrocious, drink driving is going to be a huge issue if they wish to do Oktoberfest properly, and not just a watered down bastardised 'family' version. Thorpe Park would have made a whole lot more sense. Always has been the more adult themed event location, for example, I don't remember Ministry of Sound events at Alton Towers (though you'd have more on an idea on that i'm sure).

    • Hopefully they'll spend big to get this one right!

      Theme Park WorldwideTheme Park WorldwideVor Monat
    • Think people might be aware of this if you don't camp or stay on site or in the cabins or Pods you not going to get smashed unless you get a train or someone who doesn't drink drives there not to responsible for serving drivers alcohol

  • Hmnmmm. Not sure about this. The whole thing about oktoberfest is about drinking excessive amounts of beers so how will this be a family event? Can't help but think this is going to be a money spinner for them and the festive food being an absolute rip off. I hope I'm wrong but we'll wait and see.

  • Quite genius idea actually cause I think September is their least popular month because most people are back at school and such and would rather wait until Scarefest in later October. Correct me if I am wrong of course :P ... This way they'll have a larger flux of people from the 18th of September

    • Correct, that's how Oktoberfest is supposed to work. The original one in Munich starts in mid September and ends just a few days into October. The reasoning behind it is back in the 1800s they moved it slightly so it could run for a longer period and feature more sunny days.
