Re: Pleasure Island

Apologies for the double post, but if anyone hasn't yet noticed, a certain auction error has been all over the news today... During the carousel's auction, there were no bidders to match the company's £180,000 minimum sale price, until the last second. However, apparently it turns out that last minu...

Re: Pleasure Island

Has anyone managed to win anything in the auction?  :D
My partner and I may or may not have ''accidentally'' won a monorail car for our tiny garden  :lol

In addition to the above, Air/Galactica has 2 larger seats in the middle of row 4 on each train, and a matching test seat at the entrance :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Seems like a nice way of leaving a mark on the park if you are prepared to pay that much :) Nothing wrong with investing in what makes you happy (if you can afford it) after all!  However, my main concern is potential vandalism: it doesn't seem likely that they'd have security watching over them at ...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Oooh, nice job! It definitely has a much more muted look there, but does seem a bit more magical and mysterious. However, the current turquoise colour does stand out nicely against the landscape, as well as making the lighter branding colours 'pop' on signs etc. What would be cool is perhaps a 2-ton...

Much nicer than a light-blocking and probably rainy (because UK) view of Cbeebies land hotel!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The other thing missing is that this year is not any old year, it is the year of a new rollercoaster (SW as well!) and the response doesn't really convey any excitement for the year ahead. Good point. You'd expect to see them mentioning WM in their comments more, but then again maybe they are tryin...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Looks like a lot of social media users have been directly tweeting Nick Varney himself, rather than the AT/Merlin pages, as that's where they feel a difference will be made. It seems people are currently feeling more like financial statistics, rather than welcomed guests. Perhaps I'm sensationalisin...

I suppose that's true. We'd all be gathered outside FV in protest after an initial ride on Wicker Man anyway ;)

Let's hope they have enough funds to employ sufficient security personnel and don't make too many cuts in that department

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Just a thought...what happens if it's between 10 and 11am and Oblivon and/or Smiler is closed? There will be no other major rides open in that hour (until DF rides open, of course). It will be awful. Relating to this, if crowds aren't dispersed evenly enough, surely on busy days that is a security c...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Perhaps at this stage it would be better to pay per attraction  :lol (although that would mean fewer guests would come from far away of course)

''Feed the Flames''...what could this mean? Just a slogan or maybe it's suggesting a more interactive element (going out on a limb here) during the experience?

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I can very much see the VR being part removed for this year. I personally think only 3 rows of each train will have VR. That seems like an increasingly likely situation, especially after today's opening times being revealed. However I do think it has another half or full season left, just to see ho...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Regarding the new proposed ride opening times, it'll be interesting to see how the new shortened running hours will affect the ride. Any ideas?  :-k -Maybe more time spent on maintenance will help to keep things running smoothly (not that it's that unreliable as it is) -Maybe it will get less 'worn ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I hope we can assume Wicker Man does stick to the ERT opening time on opening day, rather than waiting 'til 10:00 when there's a bigger crowd to see it be opened. It's probably safe to say there will be enough enthusiasts there to fill the area though, and the ride seems to be on schedule so far, so...
