Re: Not So Sweepstake

Backed the winner at the bookies too, I class this as a double victory! Research and studying form pays off :D

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I was there Thursday and Friday and yes, it’s been ridiculous. My Instagram post (https://instagram.com/p/BhRs7cGnhBw/) lists my many complaints Wickerman was exceptional. The preshow is dramatic and uses technology well. The coaster itself has good forces and the theming throughout is brilliant. I...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Would it be a good idea for a test seat? I saw 3 people have to leave the ride and it did affect it. The queue was generally moving quickly though, a train was on the lift as the other rolled onto the brake run quite consistently. The ride team genuinely seemed like one of the most efficient in a w...

Hi all, does anyone know if the Woodcutters Bar and Grill stays open after the rides shut? Many thanks


Last orders for food tends to be before ride close, the bar does stay open until park close. Last orders for food changes depending on how busy they are and table availability.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know if Nemesis could possibly be on 2 trains next Saturday? Anyone have an idea as to what the crowds will be like on Saturday 7th? Thanks. Nemesis, two trains by next Saturday, highly unlikely. I'd say no, parts are still sat outside the back of the maintenance shed and will take time...

Yes I agree, it has also been thrown around that they are exploring heritage tours as a possibility too.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Take some sunglasses if you're going to ride Nemesis - the bulbs in the overhead lights in the station have been swapped out for insanely bright, flat white LED corn lamps giving the station a strangely clinical look that's more suited to The Smiler. Have to agree there zappomatic, they are insanel...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It may be that it was put on the family side of the site as a test, just to make sure it is ready to go and in the hope that people wouldn't notice and start expecting a March 17th opening. I'm not surprised to see it move to the 'Thrill' side of the site. In terms of the map, we usually get that i...
