Re: SW9

When I went last month I felt that Rita was pretty rough - is it just me?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Good news - both myself and the backpack survived unscathed! It's mainly Rita's baggage hold that worried me cos it is SO unsecure!

We saw a few people getting a good shove whilst staff give something at the side of the car a poke with a yellow stick thing? but nobody being asked to leave.

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Penguins would be AMAZING (charismatic megafauna ftw!) but would they have enough space for a decently sized enclosure for them or Otters? I'll be honest, I've not been in Sharkbait (it's usually too full of children for me) so don't know what it's like in there.

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got 3 rides on Wicker Man yesterday and could easily have had more - I didn't see the queue time go above 20 mins on the app - but my group wanted to get on as many different rides as possible as it was so quiet. We got to the park about 9.45 and agreed that we would get to Wicker Man and just try t...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I definitely agree that it's a much wilder ride as the day goes on. I think I managed to ride it in the perfect conditions on my first ride (which also happened to be my first ever wooden coaster), as the track was wet because of the heavy mist (the actual weather, not the artificial stuff created ...

Re: Ride Downtime

It was VERY quiet yesterday (woohoo!) - the only downtime I saw was Nemesis for about 20 mins and Wicker Man for about 15 mins. Gutted Hex was closed as I love it!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Potentially daft question - how safe/secure do we think  the baggage holds actually are? I always worry about leaving my bag in them and am trying to find ways to avoid taking a bag tomorrow. How do phones in zipped outer coat pockets get on with the restraints?

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

What are we thinking for next week in the week? Relatively quiet? I’d imagine so. From watching RideTimes since the Easter holidays finished, Wicker Man has peaked at around 60 minutes early in the day but then goes down from anywhere from walk-on to 45 minutes. Galactica has occasionally generated...

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters (2018 Edition)

Haven't been on Wicker Man yet so am leaving that off for now...hoping it'll bump a few down when I get on it (hopefully next week!) 1. Nemesis - nuff said 2. Rita - LOVE IT 3. RMT - purely for nostalgia, for a very long time this was the only coaster I'd go on. Even though it's a bit of a squeeze w...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

What is it with people and smoking in the queue lines? Everyone seems to be doing it there’s plenty of signs around the queue but it seems people can’t read these days. I know this may seem like a minor complaint but I’m asthmatic and it causes me so many issues, then when you tell them to stop the...

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Where did the floorless trains idea come from and why has it stuck around? Oblivion is terrifying enough and it's simplicity is what makes it so good.
