As a rule, restaurants, hotels, bars and sights don't get their own articles on Wikitravel. --210.246.55.63 17:24, 15 February 2014 (EST)

  • Keep see exceptions in Wikitravel:What is an article? - "Big free-standing theme parks...". Alton Towers is one of the biggest theme parks in the UK, and most visitors spend a full day there. So I think that it qualifies for an article. If you disagree please explain, and identify where you wish to merge the existing content to. AlasdairW (talk) 13:20, 16 February 2014 (EST)
  • Keep. The theme park/resort is a major attraction, and many visitors stay overnight or visit the area just for Alton Towers, so I believe it qualifies as a full article - see the exception note above. Ogp (talk) 17:11, 16 February 2014 (EST)
I see that you are developing the article now so that I hope in future it is less touty and conforms more closely to our Mos. I'll withdraw my nomination in the hope it becomes a better article. --210.246.57.91 18:52, 16 February 2014 (EST)
  • Keep, for the reasons already mentioned above. Since 210.246.57.91 is withdrawing his nomination, the Vote for Deletion message can be removed from the article, no need to wait the full 2 weeks. Adzas (talk) 10:34, 17 February 2014 (EST)
