Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra)

I’m not sure what will happen with Sub-Terra. Knowing Alton like we do, I think it’s entirely possible that they will “do a House of Monsters” and just keep Project 42 set up throughout next season, as this will save on the cost of re-building it for next years Scarefest. That being said, Alton are ...

A gentle reminder that, although it hasn’t been active in a few years, we do have a topic dedicated to People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas, so can all discussion on this subject be continued in the correct place please?

Thanks :)

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Overall I am very impressed with Scarefest this year. Both Sub Species and Altonville Mine Tours are, on the whole, stronger than they were last year. I particularly like the change to the ending of Mine Tours, which makes it much more disorientating than in previous years. I was also very impressed...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I personally don’t have an issue with team orders. At the end of the day, it’s a team sport, and the drivers are employed by the team. I don’t like Hamilton but from Mercedes perspective with regards to the championship, switching the drivers round in Sochi made sense. Lewis essentially now has 2 ra...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

Possibly N-ST reopening, Seeing as there has been a tent seen there this year maybe work has gone in refurbishing it, or it might be having some TLC. But that's just my thoughts. The activity around Nemesis: Sub-Terra is related to Project 42, the new maze for this years Scarefest that is utilising...

Re: Congo River Rapids - General Discussion

Fingers crossed we might see the waterfalls turned back on sooner rather than later. I don’t think we’ll see the waterfalls switched back on until all of the Rapids boats have received the enhancements. They could potentially be back for Scarefest but I wouldn’t be surprised if Towers waited until ...

I think I've spotted an error with the hoodie I bought at Towers, anyone else spot this and can confirm? I have done a rough translation and it appears to be blocks of the alphabet, in the GHIJK the I does not appear to be the same as used in the Wickerman marketing campaign https://pkfbyq.am.files...
