Alton Towers bans a certain type of thrill ride
Some odd news [a.k.a. brilliant PR hype - Editor] from United Kingdom theme park Alton Towers via The Sun
It seems that there have been some "reports" of extra-loud couples, uh, going at it in Alton Towers hotel rooms, to the point that enough guests supposedly are complaining that their kids are overhearing it.
In response, Alton Towers management has designated certain wings of their hotels as "family friendly." To put it simply, if you want to get it on at Alton Towers, you have to stay in the adults only wing. I wonder how they will enforce such an ordinance. The simple solution would be to insulate the walls, but that wouldn't make headlines now would it?
I've stayed in enough hotels over the years to have a few stories, and I'm sure other travelers, and those in the hospitality industry have some dandies too. The peanut gallery is open.
Actually... This could be pretty cool. I mean, yes, some sound proofing would be great too.
I agree with Meagan - although I do have 3 children (whom are not allowed to yell and scream in hotels, by the way... They do enough screaming on the roller coasters and thrill rides at the park. Hotel time is for resting and relaxing), we do travel to parks without them occasionally. It would be very nice to have an adults-only section to get away from a large portion of the population that thinks it's OK to allow children to run rampant where ever they choose.
That's... kinda awesome.
I'm sorry, but, no intimacy in the privacy of the hotel room for which I paid premium pounds???
I agree with a lot of Meagan's comments. I've traveled quite a bit myself, both with kids and without. We've gotten phone calls before because our kids (me included) were being too noisy to our guests (my apologies). I've also been on the opposite side as a single business travler and been underneath or beside a room with noisy kids. I will say in all of my business travels though, the noisy kids are encountered far more often than a noisy couple. I should add too, that the noisy couple usually doesn't last near as long as the kids do (LOL).
Ron's burn FTW!
True story :
Apologies if this appears twice as I submitted it without logging in.
Yeah, but thats the Daily Sun, not much in that paper is of any interest, except page 3 :)
I think it's a good move for Alton Towers - I hope the same goes for the Disney resorts because the "operation of that thrill ride by amorous couples" just ruins the overnight Disney magic.
