Re: What Element of a ride do you like the most?

If it's not limited to Alton then I'd probably say my favorite has to be the first drop on Manta in Florida where it puts you on your back, the force that pulls you with felt amazing.

Re: Alton Towers - Quick Questions

Hi All, quick question which my friend has asked me about and I don't know the answer. He's going to go down to Alton later this year to visit the theme park, he's seen previously that they have the comeback tickets for the park, however do they do a similar thing for the water park, so that if he v...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The lack of any information is starting to feel a little ominous, normally by now we've got a reasonable guess / info from someone within the park as to why a ride is experiencing some down time, really hoping that it isn't a major problem, especially hoping that the post that someone had overheard ...

Anyone know why it's down again? Hoping that it's not another or the same bolt again.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

They did put it out yesterday didn't they? It's obviously national news for alton towers to put daybreak/ daily mirror and countless other people through the ride before general public... Come on they never made the decision 10 mins before the communication came out, the could have easily done somet...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Ha ha that just made me laugh, first few times we went to AT I was scared of coasters going upside down and would go on the black hole, first time asking does this go upside down because i'm not going on it if it does, seems ironic that on that sight now stands the coaster that goes upside down more...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

After looking at MI7s pics this coaster looks amazing, the station buildings look pretty good, I'm just hoping that they haven't forgotten about the toilet block roof, although not sure what they can do with it, but it's going to look god awful compared to the rest of the area.

Re: Quick Questions

Thanks for that Lee, instructions are spot on, they will be getting on at Prestatyn so can get that Holyhead train etc.. Many thanks Dave I don't know where you are in N. Wales, so I'm going to presume you are on the HolyHead line. - Get the train from a mainline N.Wales station (Holyhead, Bangor, L...

Re: Quick Questions

Hi All, not sure if this is the best place to ask this or not so please move if it should be else where. Basically been asked by a friend what the best way to get to Alton Towers is via public transport, they are travelling from North Wales, I'm guessing it's a train to a station near the Towers the...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Totally agree, TOT is a fantastic scare maze, having been to halloween horror nights and busch gardens horror nights I still think TOT is the best maze I've been to, not having to do the conga with everyone else in the park is pretty much a good bonus :) It's been a rumour knocking about since the e...

Re: SPOILERS - 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra...

That description sounds like it's building up to be what I was expecting from the ride, I think it's going to be a good addition to the park, one of those guilty pleasures of a ride that some people will find riding as a 1 off is enough, but others will always enjoy the re-ride and the fun of it, al...

Hi Guys, Just had a thought, didn't someone win a competition to be on the team that planned SW7 ? or something along those lines, I'm just thinking if this truly is what was intended to be SW7 then do we know who won the competition? or have they not been announced to a) keep it secret or b) this i...

Re: Early Ride Time

Hi Guys, I have posted this in quick questions but hoping you know the answer, is the £15 price on those days a special offer on the Website only? or is it that price on the gate too? If not do you know the gate price?
