Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Scarefest during the first couple of weekends or the Halloween week when most kids are back at school will probably be you quietest options.  Beware that one of the days usually the first or second Sunday of the Scarefest that a certain community descends onto the park.  Fireworks are usually their ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Not sure what you mean by “below average guy” but he’s the gentleman that sits in the op cabin... Every single time I’ve ridden this year it’s been him operating 90% of the time, or a lady, presumably when he’s on his break / day off.  I meant build wise in height and stature, he is a lovely guy.  ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Are we talking about below average guy, on the small build size, short hair? I think you are talking about Dave? He used to work on Oblivon

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

The Alton Towers Holidays website has been updated with Scarefest details. There doesn't appear to be anything of note in relation to the theme park offering, but there is some insight into the seasonal entertainment in the Alton Towers Hotel and Splash Landings Hotel: Alton Towers Hotel: Enjoy a h...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Beware of visiting on a Sunday during the first week or two, especially when the Uttoxeter racing is on = Alcohol ban and high police presence ;)

Re: Scarefest

I can't believe that TOTT has gone, on the bright side, hopefully no more hands on the person in front.  Looks like the scare zones have gone too

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I've visited 4 times this season and not once were they filling up the boats, even on busy days, the queue line was running to the entrance of the rapids.  Normally the wooden rapid foot bridge that crosses the over to where the storage outbuilding is, just before you get to the waterproof vending m...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The pic argument is irrelevant. Like I said earlier, the same came be said with riding rollercoasters, as a single rider, I often end up purchasing pics with me and some stranger. Also if you are a party of more than 2 on any of the rollercoasters, you all will not be in the same pic as all the roll...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Maybe it’s a ploy to try and sell more On-Ride Photos? I know I’d be much more likely to buy a Rapids photo if it was just me and my other half in the boat, than if we were sharing one with another group. I think the same could be said with all the rides.  I've plenty of pics of me on the rides wit...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I was on park yesterday. Wicker Man didn't open until 9.50 which means ERT was wasted and the rest of the rides opened at 10.  Rita was down in the morning. Having all the rides open at 10 made a big difference to the day, it’s just a shame that they don't fill the Rapids boats up, instead sending m...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Was on park today, the ride operations were good and the park was quiet. Nemesis was on two trains and the sky ride opened around 11am. I would have like to see the DF rides opened at least at 10.30.  I would hope that the  staggered opening times would be abolished during busy days and events. A st...
