But think about it, it goes both ways. In hotels, at theme parks and other places, more than other adults, I hear kids whose parents don't discipline them, let them yell and scream and do whatever they want, whenever they want.
I realize that as half of a DINK couple, theme parks don't really cater to us and we have to put up with a certain amount of noisy-child-induced pain. So i don't complain to hotel staff about the kid-noise, ever.
But I'm sure parents feel VERY entitled to complain about adult noise. Even if happens very rarely....
I would look forward to going back to an adults only wing of a hotel at the end of the day. Parents may have inadvertently created the hotel equivalent of a "quiet car" on a train for us; I somehow very much doubt the type of noise that caused this policy is as loud, frequent or sustained as the noise kids make.
This is all said with the caveat that I have never been to Alton Towers specifically; basing my experience largely on US parks.... Who knows, maybe they DO have a tremendous sexy noise pollution problem... LOL!
Can't imagine their type of noise pollution is that annoying - I'm usually exhausted after a day at the parks anyway, and fast asleep!
I'd love to know how they're going to enforce it though - LOL!!!
I imagine this will encourage young, party people to book rooms in the new area, as well, meaning that this new area may now become full of drunken reveling.
You might as well tell me I can't scream on the roller coaster...
I once had terrible cramp in my calf muscle in the middle of the night. Something I'm sure many of you have had. So you know the pain.The ensuing moaning and frantic movement to try and relieve the cramp had the guy in the next room banging on the wall and shouting for us to "take a cold shower".
Anyway...woe betide anybody getting a cramp at Alton Towers for fear of being evicted.
True story :
Whilst staying at an hotel I once had a terrible cramp in my calf muscle in the middle of the night. Most of you will know the intense pain this brings. Anyway the ensuing groaning and frantic movement to try to relieve the cramp resulted in the guy in the next room banging on the adjoining wall and shouting that we should " take a cold shower"
So don't ever get a cramp when you stay at Alton Towers or you'll probably be evicted from the hotel.
