Evaluation how the functional areas contribute to Alton Tower's aims and Objectives Alton towers aims to portray a positive attitude within the local community. The park is set in the country side and is engulfed by trees, this is because the trees act as a sound barrier and help reduce the amount of noise heard by local residents reducing the likelihood of complaints been made against the park. Even though the noise will be reduced, residents will still be able to hear the rides and tourists in the park which could still cause hostility.
