Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Alton Towers have updated their opening times for the May Half Term period. The theme park will now be open 10am-6pm between 26th May & 3rd June. https://i.imgur.com/Q6pKBjt.png This is very much a welcome move by the resort. At peak times, ride close should be a minimum of 6pm, and with May Hal...

Re: Are you allowed a GoPro camera on the rollercoasters?

The following has been taken from the FAQ’s section of the Alton Towers website: CAN I FILM ON THE RIDES USING A GOPRO/OTHER FILMING EQUIPMENT? Due to the safety of all our guests, we cannot allow anyone to film on our rides and attractions. You can submit a request to film on board the rides, but y...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Based on what I’ve seen from multiple people on social media, it seems Icon has had nothing but positive reviews so far.

It certainly does look to be a high quality attraction, and just reading these reviews makes me want to ride it even more, sadly I have to wait until August :cry:

Does anyone know why Th13teen is experiencing a lot of downtime this season? It seems to be down more frequently.


It doesn’t like the heat, so I imagine it’s struggling during the warm weather we’re having :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If that is accurate information, I’ll be highly disappointed, but not surprised. I know Thorpe Park only operate the fire effect on The Swarm when the park is expected to have a certain number of guests in the park, so it seems that Alton have adopted this system on Wicker Man too. I honestly though...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The area of the website that states photography on filming on all attractions is prohibited should be enough. Maybe it was because it was the Rapids, and the fact that another park had a fatal accident on a Rapids ride just last year, that caused them to publicly call Shawn out. I know the boat was ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m with the park on this. They have always officially had a ban on filming on rides & attractions, but obviously people have done it on the rides where it’s easier to get away with, like the Rapids. The sign at the entrance to the Rapids says: Video equipment and cameras are taken on this ride ...

Where can you enter the Towers? The only entrance I knew was locked when I tried last time.


The most common place is via the conservatory (where the exit for ToTT has been for the past few years).

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The price on the website isn’t for an individual bag, it’s for a multipack.

24 x 31.8g is £6.69 and 8 x 6 x 25g is £11.33.

Anyway, I think we’ve discussed the Wicker Man crisps as much as we need to so can we get back to discussing the actual ride please?

Thanks :)

Wasteland Bash is in an area of the park with predominantly thrill rides so most traffic in FV is teens/adults wanting to go on the roller coasters not watch shows couple this with the fact it has no mention of it what so ever outside of Ripsaw's site it's not surprising there's little people watch...

We now have a topic dedicated to 'Project Zer0’ speculation.

We ask that all discussion around this potential development for Thorpe Park takes place in there.
