Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hello! Quick question about the Enchanted Village... I've never stayed in any other of the hotels other that the main hotel and Splash Landings.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The car looks great! Anybody have any idea why the wicker mans 'face' looks different on the front of the cars (and in the promo artwork) compared to the actual element itself?

Re: Ripsaw a bit tame these days?

Does ripsaw have an automatic ride cycle? Im a ride operator at a local theme park and I occasionally work on a top spin ride, but we get to control the cycle, making it as tame as we like, depending on the customers reactions
