Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Oblivion is the ride that I was intrigued and interested in before I went on my first roller coasted. The theming, the area music, the videos my sister use to tell me about whilst she queued. It was always so intimidating and scary. It still holds up as a scary ride to this day for me. It's always s...

Re: Christmas & New Year at The Resort

It looks fantastic! I imagine there is such a warm, fuzzy buzz around whilst this Christmas event is on! I also agree with Dan with the resort restricting it to just hotel guests. I would love to experience this festive event, maybe in the future.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I do agree that an Alton Towers CD should be released if enough material is made. I do feel wonder how well it would be received if they did redo the classic Nemesis or Oblivion soundtracks.

Re: Scarefest

I've got to say Morgan, I love your enthusiasm towards Scarefest 2018 already :lol I think that TOTT could do with an overhaul and redesign but still think the focus on it being a conga line maze. I feel it is a good starter maze and that if you take away the conga line (even if it is at the end), i...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

Out of the big 6, this is my least favourite but I still enjoy it. The rush, the turns, the little jumps make it a great ride. I wouldn't normally queue more than 40 minutes for this though. I think it's a great ride and I don't feel too uncomfortable whilst riding but it's not my favourite and the ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Agreeing that they can now develop the theming if they had any plans to add more dependent on the time. Again, very encouraging that the testing has started. We may well have a major attraction from merlin that opens on time, obviously there has been problems for them not being able to open them on ...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Massive news then. Very positive signs that the ride is ahead of schedule (which we already knew). Fantastic to see the ride is in the testing phase, 3 months ahead of opening as compared to The Smiler where it was still being built passed its oriental opening time. I'm really impressed with how wel...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I think this move is the perfect opportunity to turn it into a really well themed attraction. I agree that X hasn't been the greatest and must say since it lost the "No Way Out" theme and aspect of the ride, it hasn't been the best when basing it on a rave. I think this could be a really g...

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

Nemesis: Sub Terra. I've never been so anxious to get off a ride in my life. It was too much for me as i never experienced something which i couldn't see what was going on. This was before the maze section was added, i imagine if i went when this was added, i will not have coped. But now that I've d...
