Re: Best/Worst places to eat in Alton Towers?

Pizza/Pasta buffet in Splash Landings during lunch is great! You get icecream too!

Re: Thorpe Park 2013 General Discussion

Well, Samurai and Slammer were down all day, and Loggers broke down at around 3/4pm (and I don't think it re-opened). I think that Stealth stayed open, although I didn't get a chance to ride it.  Wind wasn't that bad really. The park was packed though - avoid Fright Nights in school holidays! ...

Re: What Are You Reading?

I enjoyed the hunger games trilogy.  Was a bit let down with the ending of the final book as I felt it was rushed.  But enjoyed it very much!  Filled the potter shaped hole in my life! Just finished Imagineering by Walt Disney imagineers.  Very enjoyable with lots of photographs ...

Air, when I was asked to "prepare for air" and "assume the position" around 5 times!

Re: Front queues

Really sorry to say this,  but I like the fact that there is no front row queue yet for the smiler.  Of the 6 times I've ridden it, I've only ever been front row or second row.  It doesn't bother me that other rides have front row queues.  If they are a reasonable length,  I...

This can be moved to a more appropriate place, I just wanted to post it under Seaworld.

Will anyone be watching this film?  Or has anyone watched it yet?  What are your thoughts?

Sitting in the diner at Flamingo Land yesterday,  I overheard a group of people say "the good thing about AT is that they have a KFC and they actually sell real KFC food"......no they don't anymore!

Re: Single Rider Queues

Also Sonic.  The SRQ normally has a longer queue time than the normal line.  Unless it rains, then they don't send full trains off, they only fill 3 seats so you have more of a chance getting on then.
