Re: ScareMazing 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

Fantastic event, definitely the best line-up so far. Doing the mazes was great, and the BTS Tours were fantastic, really enjoyed the Sub Species one. The talks were good as well, even though they weren't able to tell us anything new about SW8. ;) The price for the event was, as usual, perfect. The p...

Re: Scarefest

Yes, the travelling community visited yesterday. TTSP will be in attendance on Saturday, so say hello if you see us! I think they were there Saturday too, I saw pictures of the do's & don't's sign outside the entrance saying they weren't selling alcohol. Hopefully they aren't there this Saturda...

Re: Scarefest

Let it be known that I said, the welcoming wouldn't be scary and would feel much more like a 4 pumpkin maze, that they over rated to sell more tickets...just saying Anyway can anyone tell me, how much scarier is sub species, compered to Altonville Mine Tours, Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatcher...

They can arrive any time, so don't worry too much. Last year it was well managed and everything was fine :)

I was there last year and seem to remember it being fine, but I know some other people who had a bad time with it. Hoping it's alright

Re: Scarefest

Does anyone know what weekend it is that travellers usually go to scarefest ? Last year it was the Friday before half term, so this year that would be Friday 20th October. Usually it's the first weekend of Scarefest but MakoMania is right in that they came on the Friday before half term last year. ...

Re: Scarefest

Yeah I'm not too sure why they're only keeping freak show, but maybe it's so they can afford the actors in the new maze, by cutting down on the actors in the scare zones and only having the 1. But costs really shouldn't be much of an issue given how much revenue Scarefest/the park in general generat...

Cloud Cuckoo Land

I think they could actually bring back Toyland Tours. They've got the space, the money, and maybe some of the old props which could be refurbished and reused. It'd be great to see, especially with some modern upgrades. I know they probably won't do it, but what else would they do with the space, oth...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Noooooo, you've taken it the wrong way!! What I was trying to get at was like just how the media slate Alton Towers, and really put it in a bad limelight no matter what nowadays - the picture especially. Not sure if that made sense, but I hope you get the gist!! :lol Doesn't matter, someone got run...

Charlie, Wobble World & Ice Age have been completely removed. That's why they were selling the Ice Age merchandise off cheap at the end of last season then :/ Although, the characters are still listed here: https://www.altontowers.com/theme-park/meet-our-characters/#characters" onclick="window....

Hopefully they'll do an actual Hex update this week, I'm guessing this is just to create hype over it.
