Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

Just to remind everyone, the Alton harbor thing mentioned in the Welcomings description, was just bad grammar!
It was meant to say "The woods around Alton, Harbour a dark secret" or something to that effect!

...Hello!...

So who wants to take bets on how long before the company collapses?

They are still building hotels by the way!

Adding on to what I asked yesterday,
What are the odds of it being fully booked on the 30th (if I book on the 28th)?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I think I remember seeing some wrist bands stacked up by the turn stiles, but could just be false memory syndrome.

I got hand stamps every single year since 2009, never heard of them using wristbands.

Re: Re entry to the park

^^^ Hi guys, I've purchased tickets for Saturday 14th October for me and my boy. We've bought ultimate fast track for us again but this is the first time we're coming to scarefest. We intend to be there there 10am till 9pm but we don't want to be dragging coats about if we can't leave them in the ca...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

You can ask the staff to stamp your hand on the way out, as long as it has not been washed off (VERY hard without actively trying to) they will let you back in!

If you can afford it, try do House of Monsters, I did it last year.
best £5 I ever spent!

Re: Scarefest

Arrive for 9:30 or something and buy them as soon as you get in.
Ask for HoM, it never got sold out last year so you should be quite safe with that one!

Re: Scarefest

Will probably miss sub species then!
When the scariest thing I have ever been in is CoS 2010 and paj del terror at Blackpool (on my own mind you),
Then going in one of the UK's most intense mazes seems like a good way to turn myself off mazes for a good few years!

Re: Scarefest

Let it be known that I said, the welcoming wouldn't be scary and would feel much more like a 4 pumpkin maze, that they over rated to sell more tickets...just saying

Anyway can anyone tell me, how much scarier is sub species, compered to Altonville Mine Tours, Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers?

Re: Scarefest

In that last picture, zoom in on the very top of the pirate stage (above the skull) see the weird wicker, dream catcher type things?

That's a bit interesting sure, but I'm more interested in the supports holding them up.
Especially the large gap in between the dream catcher things!

Re: Scarefest

With regards to The Welcoming, i'm not excited one bit yet. The name is underwhelming and I just have this feeling that its going to fall flat. I think they are trying to redo what they did with The Sanctuary and I feel that they are going to mess it up. I hope i'm proved wrong though! So its not j...

Re: Scarefest

if HOM is a free maze that could be why there's no second scarezone? Also do we know where the 4th maze is going? As far as I'm aware, House of Monsters never got sold out in any form, they probably reasoned that they don't need a booking system for HoM this year. To be honest, I kind of hope its n...

Re: Alton Towers - Music and Videos

Anyone have the audio from inside House of Monsters? mainly the music that plays when you had to dress the "ancestors" in wolfboys scene and the music from the final maze section where you get chased by everyone because they want to kill you now! The speech that plays just as you enter wou...
