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...

I'm currently really into BROCKHAMPTON, Kali Uchis, Rex Orange County & tyler, the creator. All of which well worth a listen!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Going Sunday but after reading the trip advisor reviews and comments on the forums I am now dreading our trip, does anyone have any tips on how to move about the park during the day, making the most of getting on as many rides as possible? To be honest with you I'd leave Wicker Man towards the end ...

Re: SW9

I know we have just had a woodie, but I am now really hoping either for SW9 or SW10 (yes I'm that forward thinking!!) we get a terrain hugging RMC with lots of theming. If not a well themed Intamin LSM Blitz coaster, much like Taron.  I think the mutli-launch would work well in FV, potentially going...

Re: How will London Entertainment Resort impact UK theme parks?

If the Paramount Park does go ahead it'll be up against parks like Disneyland Paris, PortAventura and Europa Park. Not the Merlin UK parks or local parks. I doubt it'll detract business from Towers at all, as it will attract a different type of market sector.

It was open yesterday and earlier today.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Some horrendous queues at Alton today (hence why they're shutting at 6). Wickerman on 200, Big Six between 80-120, even The Blade is on 30 mins :O - glad I went in the snow/rain :lol

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know if you can purchase a digital download of an ORP (taken yesterday) and I know the photo number and time of day it was?  I don't mind if I can purchase at home or go back and purchase.

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got on Wicker Man for the first time yesterday. And at this moment in time, it's ranked my second favourite Towers coaster (Nemesis at 1, The Smiler at 3). However, I feel after a night ride it could potentially be my number 1 (Towers) coaster. The entire ride area is very well thought out and flows...

With just 10 minutes until ride close, Wicker Man has opened, and is currently on a 0 minute queue!

Wicker Man didn’t open, the app stated it did, however after running all the way from Oblivion to the entrance, the ride was shut. There was just an issue with the app.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Despite Wicker Man not being open I was very pleased with the fact that Alton had gone to the effort to have The Welcoming ‘beornen’ actors out, stilt-walkers and fire jugglers roaming the WM area and Mutiny Bay. The ride itself looks absolutely STUNNING in person , and only makes me want to ride it...

Re: The State of Towers Street

Towers Street this season looks pretty amazing compared to previous years after the TLC paint over, making it much more colourful and vibrant! I don't think it needs changing if anything maybe a new dining option there and more of an effort to make sure that the refill station is open (as I've only ...
