Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Speaking of The Welcoming, it appears that MAP discount is available for it this year, which drops the maze price to £6.40.

Re: Liseberg

Liseberg have uploaded the following video to their YouTube channel, which shows some stunning shots of Valkyria as well as containing what I presume will be a snippet of the soundtrack.

The park have also confirmed on Twitter that the ride will open this Friday, 10th August.

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

It wasn’t a slip, at was some sort of incident on Master Blaster. At this stage it is unclear whether it was a guest or a member of staff who was injured, but for there to be multiple police officers and firemen in and around the Master Blaster trough, including a spinal board being present, we need...

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

It seems like an accident has happened at the Waterpark in the last hour, according to tweets by  Towers Expert  and  Ministry of Joy . Apparently ambulances, police, and fire engines are on site. Anyone know what's happened? I hope anyone involved is ok.  Stoke on Trent Live have tweeted the follo...

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Okay, so I'll probably be making a visit to Alton Towers sometime between now and mid August – does anyone have any ideas on the quietest time to go so that we can make the most of our visit? Thanks! :) I don’t think it really matters when you visit at the moment, crowd levels will be similar every...

Lift hill - was surging/undulating on the first section of the lift hill, definitely felt as if the lift was struggling. I noticed that, or something similar, during my last visit at the end of May. It was as though the chain was speeding up and slowing down every few seconds, which was causing it ...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

Fairly sure Alton do/did the same thing, at least outside of peak season. But it's a real shame they haven't used summer hires to solely run bag drops, without full ride-op training. With the assumption minimum wage is paid, then that's about two entrance fees per staff member, per day. They won’t ...
