Some eagle eyed TowersTimes Forum members have spotted some Shrek related theming hidden away on park. Although the location makes it difficult to see exactly what the theming is, the fact the word Shrek was seen and the shapes resemble Shrek related characters suggests a new attraction could be on it’s way for 2011.
A 4D attraction has been widely rumoured for Alton Towers for a number of years, and considering Shrek 4D is established in a number of parks this could be a credible possibility. Following its creation in 2003, Shrek 4D attractions currently operate globally across Universal Studio’s park portfolio, as well as at Movie World Germany and Warner Bros. Movie World in Germany.
If a Shrek 4D attraction were to be confirmed, it would likely be located in one of the park’s vacant tents which formerly housed the Black Hole or the Ice Show. It would also mark a return to family oriented attractions following the addition of Th13teen this year, a ride widely marketed towards thrill seekers.
Images are on the way as soon as we get them, and we’ll have more news as we get it.
