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

Works out great for those with a Thorpe park season pass.  It don't include Ft to DBGT.

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...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I can't say where it begins from the hotel, it used to be from The Alton Towers Hotel gardens which are now where CBeebies hotel is now.    Yes it does take you near where the Blade is, but I can't tell you what time it will be operating from.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This is brilliant news, lets hope that this is more long term for the rest of the season as well as future seasons.

Also note that apparently the sky ride don't open until 12 noon

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I wouldn't be surprised if it will get a re-theme/re-name next season.   Market it as a whole new ride? ;) I do think it will just be the Vr removal and anything associated with the headsets I don't like to repeat things that Staff members tell me due to they often don't seem to materialise.
