Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi, does anyone know if/how you can book express parking for Scarefest? Had a look on the AT website but all the Scarefest dates are greyed out.

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

I'm thinking of making a solo trip to AT Thurs/Fri this week now the kids are back. Will the park be quiet or will next week be a better choice?

Re: Drayton Manor

My school always ran a school trip to AT near the end of the summer term and we were always told where the teachers would be hanging around and to follow the rules of the park. We generally went around in groups of 4-6 without a teacher escorting us, if you think of the size of most theme parks and ...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Lets do the Time Warp again 1/10 It just didn't work for me. The actors are trying so hard to replicate the performances of the original cast that they come off as overacted parodies. I hated what they have done to the songs, they completely ruined Time Warp, and I jus...

Re: TT ScareMazing North 2016 - Reviews & Feedback

What a brilliant event for my first TT meet! Everyone made me feel really welcome and I had a great time. I'm so glad I allowed myself to be talked into the extreme mazes as they were amazing and I thought they really brought TOTT up to the level of the other two. I cant wait for the 2017 season and...

Re: The Altonville Mystery

I wish I had a theory to throw out! The story is fantastic Dom and I have no idea what is coming next.

I don't think The Controller is the one in charge so the big question is who is?

Re: Ride you have queued up for the longest is?

3 1/2 hours for TOTT at Scarefest quite a few years ago (maybe 2008) when it used to be free and the other mazes were in the car park.

Re: Rollercoaster Restaurant - 2016

I went to the Roller Coaster Restaurant yesterday and was very pleased. It was great watching the orders flying around above our heads and I especially loved the loop. The food was nice, I had the steak with peppercorn sauce which was very tasty and my steak was cooked exactly as I ordered. The port...
