These are not for me, they should have gone for a Beornen, Wicker Man themed village and had Wicker Pods.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

Alton has its faults, but I am a firm believer it is actually what you make of each visit. People are quick to complain, but when you take a step back, it is a beautiful park with some great attractions. I think some areas need work to bring them up to standard, but hopefully TLC will continue to s...

Re: Fireworks

It was great to finally meet you too  :)  With this seasons cuts, poor ride operations, poor put through, long queues, I was dreading our visit over the weekend   :sick:  But it actually turned out to be an amazing weekend away, probably our best visit of the season.   As for the fireworks, just ama...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It’s brilliant at night, absoloutely amazing. Got our last ride of the season on it last night and I was batched with a TT and TS member some of you may know. It was great meeting and talking to you, I tried to find you after I’d regrouped my family to have a chat but you’d dissappeared into the ni...

Re: Last ride you have been on

It should have been the Wicker Man last night, but it broke down shortly after 9pm and we were all told to leave the queue line (priority pass' handed out)

So my last ride yesterday was Oblivion

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Apparently there was a loud bang half way around.  What it was that caused the bang, I don't know.  Some one describe it as if a mobile phone hit the carriage, but could they said they could be wrong.

Anyone seen anymore of the Scaresmospheres? I am there this Saturday and wondering if its worth it to look at the areas as it gets dark?

Personally, I would say no.  However I did bump into them a couple of times.  The Flash mob is OK though.

How awesome does it look in the dark? :love

Can’t wait to see it for myself next week.

It looks absolutely amazing in the dark, looks like real fire, and you can see the flames too when riding it in the dark, looks like you are going through real fire.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Had a look on the Alton Towers crowd calender and decided to head up on Friday 5th October as a solo visit. With Scarefest happening on the 6th and 7th and no schools off, I'm hoping it will be really quiet. Any thoughts? Also wondering what people feeling are about going to the park solo? I've gon...

As posted on TowersTimes Facebook page;  The exterior of Sub Species: The End Games has had a minor makeover this year, with the shipping containers which house the end of the maze being covered in graffiti. https://i.imgur.com/jujhbXq.jpg https://i.imgur.com/tJyHS5T.jpg https://i.imgur.com/5SRSFFi...
