Re: Alton Towers Resort - Staff and Recruitment

Rides is where it’s at! I’m biased though haha. I have friends on other departments though who’ve had good experiences. It’s a very social job and not for everyone, but I love it. Is being a Ride Host 16+ then? I thought Ride Op and Ride Host was 18+, but hopefully, Ride Host is 16+, that sounds gr...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

I like the idea of the parade coming back. And then (even though the chances are beyond slim) 40th-anniversary bunting and garland would look great on Towers Street. Also, to celebrate, something along the lines of 'late night Saturdays' which consists of dusk riding and maybe an evening show on the...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

I noticed it wasn't open when I visited but I thought it might just have been closed for the day. You're right though; all the signage is gone and it's not on the map. I wonder why. The first guess of course is budget cuts but maybe not. DF box office was also closed on my visit. Probably a good th...

Which department are you applying for?

And 16 for most entry positions (ride host, retail host, customer services etc).

I'm not sure yet, whichever departments I'd be able to get a job in! :D

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

During the pre-show when the runes around the room first light up I always felt a slight movement. I never figured out whether they blasted some air from the sides, or if it was purely the boom on the bass that they use at that time. I also entered one time and it seemed like some smoke was in the ...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Here are a few movies I've seen recently, I'll be short and snappy.  Black Panther - 10/10 The best Marvel film IMO. Great action scenes and effects as well as an incredible soundtrack put together by The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar.  The Shape Of Water - 10/10 Again, a stunning film - both visually a...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Merlin's Capex cycle makes Towers probably due a small investment for 2019, This'll probably something like a Sea Life expansion or Cbeebies Land attraction coupled with something like a new F&B outlet. I definitely do not see a Sea Life expansion for two reasons, 1, there's nowhere to ...

Re: The Future Of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; The Ride

If Twirling Toadstool came back and they added another family flat (themed to whatever the CatCF retheme may be) I could see that working, however (although it's not really relevant to this topic), we need Thrill flats, not more family flats - as although there is a lack in both, I feel thrills are ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'd imagine it will have a one-shot fastrack available either by the summer holidays, if not, next season for sure. Only other way I suppose you could get a one-shot is if the ride breaks down whilst your in the queue (and the queue gets evacuated) , and you get a priority pass - but I guess that do...

Re: The Future Of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; The Ride

Personally, I'd rather they focused on adding flat rides to the park before a retheme of CCL if I'm being honest, as although the area needs work, most of CCL is looking decent following the recent TLC on some of the buildings and driving school. Whereas the flat ride selection at Towers is close to...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

There is someone telling you where to sit, and they will make you go to that row, unfortunately.  I requested back row and even said I was willing to wait as many dispatches as it'd take, but they will still just put you on the next row they need to fill. Hopefully, this policy does change, especial...
