Re: Ride pin badges

All these events pin badges are too hard to get hold off for me to bother trying.  :( It'd annoy me to have some but not the others so I'll just stick to the main season ones I think!

Re: X:\ No Way Out

The Walking Dead is 18+, and X has a height restriction that the average 4 year old will pass. Seems a bit odd to me. Plus I like it's current theme, and I don't like IPs or too many horror themes. So I cannot get excited about this one unfortunately!

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Not saying that the ride will be related to the movie, but the accent may be a reference to the fact that the original film took place in Scotland.

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I think they've removed anything that's sold out, rather than having them on there but marked as sold out. This year's pin badges have now gone too.

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

I have a feeling that the teaser posted to Facebook this evening (see Construction topic) may have given us our first taste of the ride's soundtrack. A little like Th13teen in places.

Re: Galactica

Somehow although Air's theme was nothing like that of Nemesis, it complimented the area really well and it just worked. Not only is Galactica a terrible pathetic attempt at bringing in crowds, it ruined the whole feel of the area. This year in particular it's been awful. No audio, blurry picture, an...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I believe it's a Rumba Rapids boat. These modifications will likely be seen on the usual yellow boats next year.

-Theming back on River Rapids roof
-Sub Terra ready to reopen with improvements
-The Smiler queue line
-Tidy up some Battle Galleons theming

Re: Scarefest

Has anyone else noticed that the actors in Freak Show seam to get a bit messy for the last week of Scarefest? It happened last year and looks to be happening again now. They all seem to swap roles and costumes and play with the make up but it doesn't work quite as well from what I see, which is a bi...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

I much prefer the music around The Welcoming to that! It's a bit depressing and forgettable, although if it is going to be the ride's soundtrack I'm sure there'll be more to it

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Merlin are capable of doing some fantastic things. Yes they can fail, Sub Terra for example, but they can also succeed, with the likes of Ghost Train. Their obsession with accommodation is something I'm not a fan of, and I hate to see prices go up while ride offerings go down. But I honestly don't b...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

What I don't like about the idea of this being in Gloomy Wood (aside from the entrance being in Mutiny Bay) is that it's theme is dangerously close to that of Dark Forest. When the area consists of one family ride this doesn't have a big impact but to have one of the largest thrill rides in Gloomy W...

Re: Scarefest

Just going back to the lighting for a moment (it matters to me  :lol) I was delighted to find this reply on Facebook: "Hi Owen, we're planning for all the lighting to be as per last year for the main week of Scarefest, starting 20th October."

Re: Scarefest

From what I've seen the lighting this year is terrible, and if they've not sorted it out by my visit at the end of the month I'll be very disappointed. The can't have incredible lighting one year and just not bother the next and not expect complaints, especially when there are no scare zones away fr...

Re: Scarefest

TowersStreet have reported that TotT is now entered over the bridge at the front of the building. They have also said that the conga line is still used, which is a big disappointment for me. It just ruins the experience and if they're making TotT strictly 15+, surely they might as well make the inte...

Re: Scarefest

Wow, I must say I wasn't expecting that, apart from the fact that we only have one scare zone, this will clearly be an incredible Scarefest.
