It also gives the geeks something to watch over closed season, these going in and bein...

The social in the courtyard will run until 9:30pm and then continue in MaGarrita’s Bar in Splash Landings Hotel. With a massive party conga line back to the hotels!  That'll be more like a "helping people who can't stand up back to the hotels" line, if previous socials are anything to go ...

Re: Fright Nights

Even with a new maze, the WD mazes really need attention because last October they simply weren’t up to standard. The scenery was fantastic and some of the best themed mazes in the UK, so visually stimulating but scare-wise very little and felt more like a WD experience or walk through than a scare ...

I would love a tour of some description and possibly a behind the scenes of operations. I've mentioned something similar a year or two back but I agree. Event or an Alton offering, either way :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Priority passes come in many forms, if it is a Smiler branded PP then it can be used on any 1.4m, if it is a pink PP then on the back it states which rides it can be used on. 

Priority passes are one use only, so once you choose to use it then you must surrender it upon use.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Controversial maybe, but my favourite Alton Towers soundtrack has to be either Towers Street Trick or Street 2015 or The Sanctuary queue line. I’d like to see Alton Towers release more of its music, perhaps a scare fest special CD.

I spoke to the bookings office again and they said the arcade is open so we'll take the kids there for their fix when we come out of the water park.

There is an arcade in the ATH which very close to the bar, so you could still have your pints while the kids get there 2p fix
