Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Solid 4 out of 5 star review from Ride Rater: http://riderater.co.uk/6835/review-wicker-man-at-alton-towers/

"Wicker Man is an attraction that has been built to a very high quality, is thrilling and is finally adding that long-awaited new dimension to the UK’s biggest theme park."

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

Re: Fright Nights

Hi - if a Saturday is a 10/10 in terms of busyness, could anyone please rank Friday and Sunday? I guess they would be a little quieter (the pricing certainly backs that up), but I was wandering if anyone could recommend a Friday over a Sunday or visa versa. Looking at the weekend of 13-15th, and hav...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

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
