Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

So just doing some research, and to give this topic some foundations to build realistic expectations on, I have found details of what Alton Towers did for there 30th Anniversary.  “Alton Towers is celebrating its 30th anniversary on May 23, 2010 with a 1980s-themed concert - and will let guests in f...

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

Re: Rollercoaster Restaurant

After seeing this, I must say that it is really nice to see the Rollercoaster Restaurant receive an update. I know it is not much, but it shows that the park are committed to updating the restaurant with new additions. Hopefully,  the show will be updated with Wicker Man footage too! :) I’ve no dou...

Going off the subject for a bit, Alton Towers had very good queue times today. Wicker Man was 30 minutes for part of the afternoon!

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

For any kind of parade to happen and a crowd/GP to care about it enough to look when it’s on and turn up in numbers build up is needed. This firstly comes in the form of creating characters people care about seeing on the floats and can relate to. I know you’re thinking but Henry hound and gang...ye...

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.

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...

Re: Towers Loving Care

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