Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

The "more surprises" alluded to on this page of the Alton Towers Holidays site are intriguing... Alton Towers Resort in 2019 is set to be an exhilarating year with the opening of the terrific Alton Towers Dungeons, the return of the phenomenal Wicker Man and more surprises to come ! To top...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Has anyone got an actual definitive version of the Wicker Man runic alphabet? The table on our SW8 minisite should provide a pretty definitive version. It did appear that two different symbols were used interchangeably for the letter 'I', but the one we list on the minisite is the one that features...

After having somewhat recovered from the previous record low in January this year, Merlin's share price has now reached a new all time low following the response to last week's trading update.

Can I guarantee entrance to the fireworks using a share the fun ticket online?

No, Share the Fun vouchers aren’t valid for entry during fireworks, as per this FAQ.

The answer to this one does state that you can prebook Friends & Family tickets though.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

But I’m unsure in The Haunting and The Highwayman, I think The Highwayman is used in the other dungeons but I’ve never heard about The Haunting though. The Highwayman is a scene at The York Dungeon , but doesn't appear to be anywhere else though. Although I haven't come across any other shows calle...

I have seen one photo on someone's personal Facebook of two Galactica Airways hostesses, as well as comments from people who've spotted some Ghost Pirates, so they do exist. I can only assume that having them as "Scaremosphere" rather than actual scare zones gives them greater flexibility,...
