Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

I honestly think the SMDC have got this decision very wrong here. The "improved" designs don't have that same magic that previous developments at Alton Towers had, wether the council managed to see something  in them or not, they definitely don't resemble the magic of prior developments a...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If it's still due to the design flaws that were being talked about on other forums a while back, then there isn't really an awful lot that can be done apart from modifying / rebuilding the Wicker Man structure during the closed season. And I'm sure we're all well aware that that won't happen. It see...

Re: TTSP General Feedback

Can I ask, will there be a multi quote feature in the next system update? TTSP is the only forum I know that doesn't have this feature, but it'd be super useful if it was introduced.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Pin Badges

Some new pins have been released recently...  https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DiEqE-yWsAAuI3N?format=jpg Image: Theme Park Guide Apparently there's even more new pins, but this is the only picture I can find showing at least some of the new ones.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

5:30pm still isn't good enough. Towers, you should be open much  later at this time of year. And when there is significant downtime, and nice weather... well, that's when you extend the opening times even further . Guess we can only dream of 7pm or 8pm closings. :( If they had the budget to, I’m su...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Galactica Airways seems like it could be pretty different to what we've see in the past. I imagine it'll be futuristic, kinda robotic costumes etc. Something like that anyway!  Completely agree with your point about merchandise, Justin. Be nice to see pin badges or something for each scare maze, and...

Re: Scarefest

It is also sad that ToTT has disappeared as it feels like an old friend, but it was getting old! I've seen it reported as if they are taking it out of the line up for 2018 while they reimagine the maze for a possible return in 2019. If this happens I can see them having that as a replacement fo...

Re: Scarefest

I have to say, I think this looks by far the most impressive Scarefest lineup to date. Although Freak Show doesn't seem to be returning, the addition of no less than three new roaming actor locations (Galactica Airways, Ghost Pirates and something else near The Towers), the return of the Alton Ances...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

What I'm shocked by is how no Merlin parks have a customer service number you can call. You'd think it'd be park basics 101? But nah, get a Twitter account and text us, that's much more direct to ask questions. Alton definitely do have a customer service telephone number for guests to call. I don't...

I'd heard that it'd been removed as well. I think it's very unlikely that it'll return to be honest.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Honestly, I find the UK Merlin parks on social media to be absolutely terrible. They can't seem to find the time or energy to properly respond and help people out when they ask for help, but they seemingly can find the time to bicker with each other (jokingly or not) about silly thing like which par...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw them increase the VR capacity for next season. With it being so limited this season, it's actually encouraged more people to use it. Perhaps they will be able to find a good balance. As much as I hate Merlin and all their silly gimmicks, I do actually ...

Mmmm. I would have done considerably better had my iPad not lagged right through the entire duration of the quiz. I had most of the answers, just not quick enough! :lol Congrats to AltonOperator for taking 1st place :)

Vortex did reopen today according to a user on Twitter. Can't remember who it was that said it, but I definitely remember reading it.

Re: Scarefest

To be honest, I wouldn't know. I think they have some decorations areound both Splash Landings and Alton Towers Hotel. Possibly some form of Halloween entertainment in those hotels too. I'm not really sure about the CBeebies Land Hotel or Enchanted Village.

Re: Where abouts do you like to sit on rides?

• Nemesis – back row, far right hand side.
• Oblivion – front row, far right hand side.
• Galactica – front row (no VR).
• Rita – don't care.
• TH13TEEN – front row or back row.
• The Smiler – front row.
• Wicker Man – towards back.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I mean, when I went back when it was just Wicker Man and Spinball Whizzer on ERT, we got one ride on Spinball – first car of the day, which was pretty cool. We then made our way to Wicker Man. Big mistake. The queue was already colossal,so we decided to use our Fastrack tickets we had bought for tha...
