Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Halloween (2018) - 7/10 A decent reboot of the iconic horror movie. In places, it felt like more of a comedy than a horror and was lacking in jump-scares (probably 2 in the entire film). Jamie Lee Curtis plays her character great and is a very good actor. Overall a great nostalgic film, pushed into ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Yeah they are, the tracks called "Bestest in the Barn" I believe. That is the one I couldn't remember. To me, that is the one which screams out CBeebies purely for Ents dancing along to it one year. It actually is one of my favourite moments at Alton ever. Strangely enough, same here! Whe...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I'd rather they spent any extra budget on flat rides, the return of Single Rider, more street ents and TLC continued for yet another closed season. However, I do really hope Merlin give Towers more budget to play with next season, regardless of what is installed (even if it's just The Alton Towers D...

https://twitter.com/MinistryofJoy/status/1059550920181235714 If this were to be true, do you think they'd be able to use some of Galactica's VR on it if the rumours about it switching back to GalacticAIR? However I'm not at all sure about the original rumour for this either, but it'd be pretty neat...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

So, I bought fastrack just now on the Alton Towers website and realised I've bought it for today which is obviously wrong as I need it for tomorrow. Does anybody know if I'll be able to change it on park tomorrow? I'm really hoping I can because it costs a lot! I am not too sure what can be done ab...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Had an awful experience on The Smiler yesterday, and the problem seems to be apparent with a lot of the major coasters at Towers - but mainly The Smiler. Fastrack. Yesterday the advertised 50-minute queue, turned into a 130-minute wait, due to the fact that staff were sending round trains FULL of f...

Re: Fireworks

As posted on the Alton Towers social media, BOTH nights of this year's fireworks display have now SOLD OUT!  And the resort have advised visitors to ONLY travel to the park WITH a pre-booked ticket. Other than that, I hope everyone has a brilliant weekend if you are attending this year's display, an...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Scarefest 2018 Review Despite the sadness of the Halloween period (and almost Theme Park season) coming to a close, it doesn’t dampen this year’s Scarefest! Over the course of the event (and having Towers as my home park) I have managed 5 visits to Scarefest - as in my eyes it is definitely one of ...

Hi Kilo_SSK!  Welcome to the forum, be sure to pop in and say hi to in the Shoutbox! Also, I'd love to visit some of the parks you've mentioned especially Walibi Belgium and Parc Astérix, but I'm also interested to hear about the smaller French parks as well.  :)

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Johnny English Strikes Again - 8/10 Probably my second favourite in the Johnny English series (with 'Reborn' being my number 1). Good half-term film and Rowan Atkinson is great as usual. Although I felt the film wasn't as funny as previous ones, it still had me laughing out loud at many moments duri...

Is the staggered openings of the rides still in effect during scarefest this week?

No, however, Duel, Runaway Mine Train and Congo River Rapids open at 11am - but the rest of the attractions should open at 10am (subject to weather conditions etc).
