Re: Fright Nights

Me and my friend are planning a Fright Nights trip and we want to dress up but are wondering if we’d be the only ones with makeup on and stuff like that ... so my question is, do people dress up for Fright nights or Not??

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Hi guys, will my Alton towers annual pass (not the new season pass introduced this year) get me into scarefest? Scarefest isn’t specifically named as an exclusion period in the Terms & Conditions , although it’s probably something worth checking with Towers: 8. Additional charges apply for entr...

Re: Fright Nights

Do you have to pay separately for the mazes at Thorpe or are they included in your entrance ticket?

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Hey guys,

I was wondering if you could buy seperate tickets for the “main” scare mazes online, I can see The Welcoming and HoM online but not Altonville on its own as we want to do that but not Sub Species or Project 42, any advice would be much appreciated!!!!

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It's a shame Big Bob still has no real fire, had none when we visited on the 8th, 9th and 10th of this month either. From comments made on other forums, it appears that the blame for the fire effect not working doesn’t lay at Alton’s feet. I’m sure it will be working again as soon as whatever the i...

Fun Fact!

Wicker Man now has a pre recorded professional announcement to alert the public that it is running/experimenting with empty trains on the track!

I believe it has for a while, I heard it at the beginning of the month.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I know The Smiler can't operate if the wind gusts to 34mph, but what about the other coasters? I'm going next Tuesday and the met office have gusts of 30 mph, so wondering what might be affected? I believe Oblivion would also shut if there were very high winds, X-sector was shut completely during S...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Yes this is quite exciting. I could feel and hear from the queue last week that the GP noticed there was only one train and as mentioned in David Maister’s eight principles of queue design, it makes the queue feel even longer when they know it should be going faster with extra throughput On a side ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

What is it with people and smoking in the queue lines? Everyone seems to be doing it there’s plenty of signs around the queue but it seems people can’t read these days. I know this may seem like a minor complaint but I’m asthmatic and it causes me so many issues, then when you tell them to stop the...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, I got on it, some of you may have seen my posts in the General Discussion bit about noise. And it was alright for that, in terms of the ride I need another go as I had my lap bar on too tight which killed my leg on the way round. But even then it was okay. Also worth mentioning somebody who a...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Was on park tonight in the Rollercoaster Restaurant and saw Nemmy’s other train testing, still no wheel covers but it made it round several times, hopefully this is a good sign that it will be back soon.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I finally rode it twice today and it’s an amazing ride (especially back row) but the maintenance bay is underwhelming at best, we were sat in pitch black for what seemed like ages and a few of the gp were wondering wether it had broke down. I really hope they do something in there as it’s really con...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Was on park today and decided to do Wicker Man first. We entered the queue at 10:40, and after a three and a half hour wait and three breakdowns, we were at the air gates next to do front row when they completely evacuated the queue! We spoke to a member of ride staff on the platform and he said it’...
