Re: Europa Park

I’ve just seen this, terrible images :(

I really hope there are no injuries as a result of this, hopefully the source of the fire wasn’t in an area of the ride that was occupied by guests.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Starting today, the brilliant Alton Towers Traffic Patrol are mobile again, with the return of their trusty T3 patrol vehicles. The ATTP spent their morning entertaining guests on a bustling Towers Street, with them unleashing their mix of fun and mischief. https://i.imgur.com/88WJfiY.jpg https://i....

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I can see the updated ERT line-up on the website but, unless I’m being blind, I can’t see where it details the rest of the changes. If true though, this is a massive step in the right direction. In truth, we should be seeing operations like this every day, and hopefully the park will use this ride o...

Does anyone know where I can find the full Wicker man soundtrack? The only one that seems to be available is the main IMAScore one but i'm trying to find the queue line and station audio :/ The full Wicker Man soundtrack hasn't been made public. The full Smiler soundtrack was never officially relea...

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:

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).
