Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

In other news, the full resort map hasn't been updated in years so doesn't include cbeebies hotel. It's annoying me

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

If its accuracy you're looking for then check out 1986: https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3038/2982257727_04ac61044e_b.jpg Its before the whole East side of the park was built but it has pretty much every path in the park on it, including those in the gardens. It also shows just how out of the way the...

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

I definitely agree it can be confusing so I always recommend that first time visitors use the app's map as it is far more accurate:

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

I completely agree with you! The maps are actually more like pieces of art than strict maps which can be boring. I find the WDW maps particularly pathetic because they're far more focused on perfection than being beautiful. http://www.chipandco.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/map1-503x500.png How uni...

The Alton Towers Park Map

Hey this is the first time I've started my own topic so I'm sorry if I did something wrong. I thought it'd be nice to have a place where we could discuss The ATR map. This thread could be used to discuss our views on it and also talk about the 2018 one when it is finally released. I'll start it off:...

Re: End of Season Review 2017

2017 featured my first visit to the island and it was incredible. I visited with my friends and their mother who received a disabled pass so queues were irrelevant. It wasn't long after all the terrorism scares so the bag check stuff was at full strength. I found all of that quite confusing and we e...

Re: Dine all day

I've always loved the idea of the pass but could never bring myself to spend so much on it. For a family of 4 it's £112! It's a little ridiculous. I personally think it will reappear closer to opening day, hopefully with revised terms. In answer to the Rollercoaster Restaurant problem, I think the p...

Re: Ride pin badges

I have an original nemesis 1994 pin but that’s in a bag on my shelf and that’s where it’s staying! There’s no way I’m going to risk losing that!!!

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

All the Terms & Conditions say is that October 20th to 31st the vouchers cannot be used. You should be fine on the 1st as it doesn't say anything about fright nights at all.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Welcome to the forum!

They could always do a six flags and call it: 'The world's first wooden coaster, manufactured by GCI, with a 20ft drop followed by a 28 degree banked turn, located within 200 yards of a lake and themed to paganism'.
I wouldn't put it past them!

No they are not real but they are symbols that represent letters. Be Chosen to be precise.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

As much as we'd all love loads of fancy new things on duel, we have to remember that they're already paying for a new roller coaster this year so we probably won't be seeing anything big happening this year. They were able to do hex last year because the only other thing they were really doing was a...

That is some serious banking!!!! Could the train be getting some extra speed from the launched lift hill apart from that which is needed to get it to the top?

Distantsic I messed with source code and found wood3 too.

These runes are definitely not nothing burrito. Thy are the same 8 all over the page. If they didn't matter they would be more randomly placed, not the exact same 8 in the exact same order.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The fact they trademarked the name is no guarantee that it will be used. Alton Towers trademarked the name Oblivion 8 years before it was used. they also own the names 'Port Discovery', 'speed fiend' and 'godess of speed'.

The timetables aren't great though. From my hometown there is no train that can get you there early enough so you have to go the day before.

Sorry just read abooth202's post. The code definitely says Be Chosen. I doubt that's the ride name though.
