Re: Ride Downtime

I couldn't see the train anywhere on Friday. Couldn't see it in the station or at any points along the track. So if the train was actually off then those reports could be true.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I also gave this a go the other day, and as Justin has said it is very enjoyable. I gave it two goes and enjoyed it a lot more the second time as I took time to look around more. I asked the attendant when it was going to be here until and he said until the end of the 6 week holidays, but we both ag...

Duel Alive was a massive pain in the backside when it comes to health and safety. Highly doubt it will make a return.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Your best option is probably getting a train to Uttoxeter as I believe this is the closest stop to Towers, and then getting a taxi.

I'm not sure if this counts but there is the most amazing farm shop/restaurant incredibly close to Alton Towers. It's lovely and does a great Sunday lunch/Sunday baps.

Oooh what's it called?

Re: PortAventura/ Ferrari Land - August 2017

I'm not too sure, as I have an annual pass so don't know how normal tickets work! 

One thing I would suggest is getting a ticket for the Waterpark. After your day in the park you can buy a discounted ticket to go in the waterpark the next day. It's a brilliant waterpark!

Re: PortAventura/ Ferrari Land - August 2017

On Furius Baco, keep your head back for the launch (obviously) but after the launch I find placing my head forwards helps. Also, sit in the inside seats for a smoother ride. 

Dragon Khan isn't too rough. Just sit back and enjoy.

Re: How many visits per year?

So far this year I've spent 5 days at Alton Towers, and I have a further 2 days planned in a couple of weeks. Also hoping to spend a couple of days there during scarefest, which would bring this year's total to 9 days, beating last year's total by 1 :lol

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Ooooh I might have a go on this! Any more info such as when it's open, is it a 'just turn up' sort of thing or do you need to book a time?

Re: Last Game You Played and Your Rating

8/10 - Planet Coaster It's a great game but there's quite a few bugs, and the coaster editor isn't that great. Once those issues are sorted out it would be a 10/10! 10/10 - Euro Truck Simulator Like Burniel, I'm a little obsessive over this game! I play it way too much! The trucks are incredibly det...

Re: Six Flags Fiesta Texas

It appears that the test track set up at RMC's offices/workshop is in fact a segment from the Wonder Woman coaster!

Marmalader? That sounds tasty. Is it a food and beverage unit?

The Wonder Woman Golden Lasso is a RMC Raptor coaster!
