Re: Fireworks

This show was very enjoyable for me because it had a simple theme, but was put together in a very artful, well-designed and emotionally affective manner. I admit my eyes started rolling when I heard the song 'Firework' start to play (''not this song again!!''), but then when the Towers twist kicked ...

Re: ScareMazing 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

Thank you so much for all who organised this! It was my favourite event yet.  I particularly enjoyed the fact that there were plenty of non-ride exclusives in the first half, so we could all keep our energy for night rides and not be whizzing from place to place too much throughout the day, making i...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Looks like something with a Nemesis-esque feel. Dark, natural and culty.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The good thing is that you know someone very keen will pay these high prices, rather than dropping it like that loom band dress on ebay that had a bid of £100000(or something) but didn't go for anywhere near that much in the end :lol also it's always worth investing a bit more in the things you want...

It looks amazing! There have always been good reviews flying around for it, but having never been there or even really looked into it myself, I had no idea how beautiful and immersive it is until now  :O

Re: Scarefest

Impressive of them to fly it up so quickly. Probably difficult to have 2 ongoing major constructions in the same kind of area and keep our eyes away from it all. Maybe they could use the maze to actively distract from the SW8 construction site somehow :lol

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

But whatever the theming structure turns out to be, it'll certainly have a good near miss moment :) Not to mention the first time the train interacts with the theming structure you'll be traveling at some speed. Coming from the lift hill you enter the sound tunnel which goes on for quite a while, t...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It's definitely exciting to keep an eye on the less geometrical, more interesting shapes of the metal structure. They give us little glimpses of character among all the dirt and straight lines which make up most of the rest of the site at the moment :D

Cookehs will most likely be provided but there'll be a limited number available (unless I invest in a giant sack and beard and throw them out like Father Christmas) :santa:


Please do


But make sure you save a special, giant one for John at the end

Re: The TTSP Referendum

I voted, but spoiled my vote. Not because I'm lazy and never bothered to research the politics etc, but because after finally finding the raw facts and ignoring propaganda and opinionated posts on FB, I realised that there were actually equally important and supportable points on both sides.

Sorry if it's a bit last-minute, but does anyone have a couple of spaces in a hotel room for Dan and I to take up on the Saturday night? Thanks :D

That news about Wipeout gave me a dream about going to PWH last night, and I was involved in the breakdown :lol but the new Tombblaster was there too, as you do.

Re: Towers Loving Care

People were telling me the box office had been repainted a horrible shade of green, but having seen it now it doesn't actually look that bad! With more colourfully painted buildings around it, it could actually look quite attractive, I think.

Re: Towers Loving Care

Nemmy is looking absolutely gorgeous. I really like the use of tonal gradients and contrasts they've used. It deepens her creases and makes her look very sinister and almost ghostly.

Re: MAP Query

Just took advantage of the MAP sale and bought a Premium Pass. Chose collection at resort option so the clock does not start ticking until the first day I visit. What the confirmation email says nothing about is how to gain entry to the Park on day 1. I am assuming the pass is issued at the Alton T...

Re: Towers Loving Care

I personally hope Nemmy doesn't stay bright white. It just looks so unnatural in what is a very wild-looking landscape, as well as not matching the off-whites of the station and, well, the general theme and character of the area. As people have been saying, it is more than likely just to be an under...

Re: Nemesis removal

If I think about her removal too much I cry :lol but yeah, luckily she's a tough one and I can't imagine her going anytime soon, especially not with Sub Species and Sub Terra still around - they need Nemmy there to be a foundation for their themes! I imagine she'll see at least a few more revamps be...
