Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Insidious: The Last Key - 6/10 I’ll be honest, I’m not a massive fan of the Insidious films. I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to films like this, give me a SAW film anyday! However, having watched the previous three films, we thought we would watch the latest instalment. It started off strong with ...

Re: Scarefest

While I would love to see a new maze, I don’t think it will happen. I’m expecting an event very similar to last year, with potentially some minor alterations to the routes of the mazes. The biggest thing for me will be Alton ensuring the have the optimum number of actors on board. Last year, the lac...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'm not certain either, but when you look it up online, this pops up https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/theme-park/transportation/woodland-walk/ . It seems to be closed at this moment in time, but if it was open and I was to guess, I think it's a separate entrance since it says you'd enter at Forbidden ...

Re: Project Zer0 - Specu1ation

Given there have been two seperate instances of Thorpe Park, or employees at the resort, confirming this as being fake, we have decided to lock this topic.

If anything credible comes out in the future that could be related to this, we may consider unlocking it, but for now....

It does beg the question though, who do Merlin employ to proof read these things? :-k

4pm closes have now been rolled out into July as well. What is going on!? This is madness.


Only July 2nd-5th are 4pm closes.

10th-20th July are still only showing as “Open” but, as previously reported by TowersTimes, the park is open 10am-6pm between the dates of 21st July and 2nd September.

Re: Enchanted Village Expansion 2018 - 2021

Having watched part of the council committee meeting, the general consensus was that while the plans themselves don't actually have any red flags which would mean a straight-up refusal, they were generally disappointed with the plan. Some of the councillors described it as "bland, boring and co...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Thank you, I was hoping when they scrapped them after the negativity at the start of the season that they wouldn’t bring it back. I’m hoping it isn’t like this for Scarefest. I don’t believe the staggered openings will be in place for either the Summer holidays or Scarefest. The fact the park remov...
