Expected but still disappointing. Are staggered openings still expected to return after the summer holidays?


It hasn’t been confirmed anywhere, but I would imagine so.

It’s a real shame, as the park operates so much better when pretty much everything opens at 10.

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra) - New for Scarefest 2018

I don't think they'd need one. Drop tower type rides are that simple, that even young children could ride. This being a scare maze, and with their being an age restriction of 15 yrs and over, literally everyone will be of a height where they could easily ride. No, they would definitely need to adve...

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.

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...

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?

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.
