The two other trains will remain impounded by the HSE for months or even years. The HSE's workload is immense, I can assure you that they will not be working around the clock on this investigation as it is relatively insignificant. Their priority is preventing dangerous occurrences and they have don...

Re: 2015 Scarefest

It seems as though the two scare zones will be the whole of the Dark Forest and Forbidden Valley after reading this from the AT website: "Forbidden Valley and Dark Forest transform in the evening..." Think that will be a slight exaggeration. Will still need access to the rides and stalls....

Re: Where to go in the towers themselves

They seem to be available less and less every year but there are all sorts of surprises in there, it's a great area to explore.
