Re: Early Ride Time 2019 Predictions

Wicker Man and The Smiler pull in the biggest queues at the start of the day and remain busy, so to me, it makes sense to include these in the ERT (along with a smaller height restriction coaster for the younger ones) . 

I would also like to see ERT return to a full hour, but it won't happen.

I always ride Rita just for the launch, the rest of the ride is just a waste of space and time  :P

Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

I did the IAC at Thorpe once, it was a good waste of 30+ minutes of my life that I will never get back

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

I've just notice why the difference in price between the searches.  The higher prices are showing with park tickets, so my mistake  :sick:

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

The prices have only change within the last few hours.   I think that they are trying to sell out the splash landings first.  Take the Firework Saturday, the Splash landings is the only resort hotel discounted.   I should imagine that the pods are not the cheapest accommodation, as being new, there ...

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

Just got an email from Merlin advertising the holiday sale now on, with Stargazing Pods from £156 per night. So at first glance that doesn't seem to be a sale. At second glance it's even more comical. Prices based on 1 night with 2-days park tickets, 2 adults sharing, check-in 12th April, checkout ...

Re: Launched K'Nex Rollercoaster

I used to have a good collection of serpent screamer Rollercoater K'nex, I build some layouts, but sold all mine to purchase the Faller fairground model kits.

There are some great K'nex coaster video builds on Youtube

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I've filled it in,  In the last comment box, I had to cut down my 30+ words down to this Shorter queuing times. Bring back Single rider queues, 1 hour Early ride time, Rapid waterfalls, longer opening times, scare zones. Abolish Staggered opening times. No more budget cuts. Affordable hotel stays

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

That’s brilliant!!! Well done Colchester Zoo for recognising that Vapers are trying to make a healthier choice and don’t want to inhale smoke, especially not somebody else’s. As good as that is, I’d personally want the vaping area a good 15-30 feet away from the smoking area, as you’d still be able...
