Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Found this on Theme Parks UK’s website: Terror of the Towers  is not opening for  Scarefest  in 2018 – it’s receiving the love and care it needs to get back up to scratch and will return soon Does this mean that TOTT could return for next year?

Re: TT Summer Festival 2018 - Reviews and Feedback

Huge thanks to the team for organising this, probably the best day in a theme park I've ever had, being my first event I was pretty nervous having known no-one, but everyone there was so friendly and at no point did I feel uncomfortable. ERTs were fantastic, presentation was really interesting and t...

Re: Scarefest

The name "Project 42" reminds me of Experiment 10 at Thorpe Park. If it's anything similar to it then Towers may be on to a winner here!

Re: TowersTimes' Summer Festival - 4th August 2018 - Discussion

Looking to go to this, have any older teenagers attended in the past? (Im 16 and i feel like everyone will be a bit older than me) Usually at our events there is a real mix of ages so i'm sure you won't feel out of place. This event as a real sense of community about it so i'm sure that you will ma...

Re: Colossus

Colossus reopened today, had a ride on it and it didnt feel much different. However after coming off I saw a group of men trying to steal from the shop, whether the staff were intimidated or not, it's absolutely disgusting and Merlin aren't doing everything they can to keep staff and guests safe fro...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Reliability is god awful on WM now, i can understand that its a new coaster and there will be teething problems, but this is fairly basic technology compared to what there is now out there (flying coasters, 4d coasters etc.) I queued up in the fastrack line twice in the space of an hour, it broke do...

Re: What are you listening to?

Well.. when I'm not listening to theme park music, I listen to the likes of Martin Garrix, Avicii, Chainsmokers, Marshmello etc.  Any other EDM fans out there? or just myself? same here, although im more into house than EDM in general, some artists I'm into are Claptone, Sonny Fodera, Camelphat and...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

In the car on the way back from a day at Towers; completely disappointed to be honest. Managed 5 rides in 6 hours, Wicker Man was down for probably 3 quarters of the day and the operations were awful. I was evacced from the station once then came back and they were sending trains with people on afte...

Re: Alton Towers 2019 Addition

A few flats are exactly what towers need at the moment - supporting rides that'll give people something today while all the coasters have massive queues, though i doubt they'd want to put them in because of marketing (i mean surely its pretty easy to promote a flat ride or two, but we all know merlin)

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

my new favourite coaster at towers, people say it lacks airtime but i dont agree, thought it was way more intense than i expected and its topped off with some of the best theming in the country, solid 9/10 from me

Not worth queueing 4 hours for though like i did!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Wonder if it will even open later today, since the queues been evac'd. TowersStreet are saying they’re giving out priority passes excluding Wicker Man, so either that means they know it won’t reopen today or they just don’t want a herd of fastrackers all at once if it reopens Edit: apparently at the...
